Help for First Responders
On June 2, I walked in the Old City of Jerusalem, taking winding streets with steps up and down. I recalled the news two days earlier, on May 31, when two Jews had been attacked in the same area. One of the victims, a 16-year old boy, was stabbed in his back. He managed to run to safety in the nearby Hurva Synagogue. The other victim was a middle-age man at the Damascus Gate who had critical neck and head stabbing wounds. They both needed immediate medical care.
As I walked the crowded and narrow streets, I knew that the first responders must have come on medical motorcycles to assist them. Ambulances had taken a long time to navigate the Old City streets. We appeal again to your support for the medical motorcycles as they are necessary vehicles for the first responders. This is a practical way for you to help save lives in the Holy Land. Thank you. ─ HP
