Help Jewish.com raise money for ambulances to save Israeli lives fighting on the frontlines!
Jewish.com is raising money to buy fully-equipped armored ambulances for United Hatzalah, the volunteer EMS service with a record 90-second response time throughout the State of Israel. Hatzalah volunteers were first on the scene of the October 7th terrorist attack and are now bringing doctors and medical staff to save lives on the frontlines of the war with Hamas.
The first ambulance will be donated in memory of our friend and fellow domainer, Lonnie Borck, who sadly passed away in 2016.
Lonnie was very active in the Baltimore Hatzalah chapter as an EMS volunteer and saved many lives. Lonnie lived a life of kindness, generosity, and humanity. We know Lonnie would be proud to have an ambulance in his name being used in Israel to save lives, just as he did in Baltimore
United Hatzalah is a non-profit emergency medical services organization that was established in 2006. Their mission is to provide fast and free emergency medical services to all people in Israel, regardless of race, religion, or nationality. They have developed a unique system of volunteer responders who are able to arrive on the scene within minutes of a call for help. Their volunteer network of over 6,000 medics, paramedics, and doctors is available 24/7, 365 days a year. They are dedicated to saving lives and providing the best possible care to those in need.

How You Can Help
On October 7, at 6:20 a.m., Shabbat morning, Hamas terrorists crossed Israel’s border, infiltrating southern towns, killed more than 1,300 people, kidnapped more than 150, and injured thousands. At the same time, Hamas launched thousands of rockets into Israel. United Hatzalah was the first on the scene, before the IDF, thanks to their GPS trackers pinging the first calls for help. They dispatched in less than a few hours over 1,000 emergency first responders and 120 + rescue vehicles to the south and north to save as many lives as possible. Since that first day, United Hatzalah EMTs, paramedics, and doctors have been risking their own lives each day. Volunteers set up field hospitals in the south with triage alongside the IDF. Now over 3,000 of their volunteers are on the front lines operating at their base/ logistics center.
• Treated over 4,000 individuals
• Delivered 50 tons of medical supplies, food, and personal care items
• Dispatched 400 rescue vehicles to the south and northern regions Transported hundreds to hospitals provided psychological trauma care to over 2,000
