American Friends of Magen David Adom
(MDA) is Israel’s ambulance, blood-services, and disaster-relief organization, serving as emergency medical first responders for the state’s 8 million people. MDA is the only organization mandated by the Israeli government to serve in this role, but it’s not a government agency, so it relies on people like you for funding. Through your gift, you’re saving thousands of Israeli lives, including:

 

A senior who suffered a heart attack who was defibrillated and rushed to the hospital for treatment and eventual recovery.
A rocket attack victim who lived to tell the tale because MDA paramedics stanched the bleeding.
A baby born en route to the hospital with the umbilical cord around his neck who was quickly resuscitated because an EMT knew just what to do.
A woman hit by a car who lived because there was sufficient blood for the transfusions she required during surgery.

MDA’s work is mandated by the Israeli government, but MDA isn’t a government agency. MDA relies on donors to ensure dispatch centers are equipped with the latest communications technology, ambulances are stocked with cutting-edge lifesaving equipment, and paramedics have the most up-to-date training.

American Friends of Magen David Adom (AFMDA) is the largest supporter of MDA worldwide.

Hebrew Free Burial Association
The Hebrew Free Burial Association (HFBA) devotes its resources to performing chesed shel emet (the ultimate act of lovingkindness- for the deceased who are unable to repay the kindness). It is the only agency in the greater New York metropolitan area dedicated to assuring that every Jew, regardless of financial means or religious affiliation, receives a dignified, traditional Jewish funeral and burial.

Since its inception in the 1880’s, the Hebrew Free Burial Association has buried over 65,000 indigent Jews. They have ranged in age from newborn to the elderly, and they may meet their ends in a hospital, nursing home, lonely apartment or even on the street.
