The family of the late David Rubin, z”l, have generously funded the purchase of a Bone Scalpel Surgery System at Ziv Hospital in Tzfat (Israel) in David’s memory through the Atlantic Jewish Council and our national partner, Jewish Federations of Canada-UIA.
Ziv Medical Center is a general hospital located in Tzfat (Safed), a city in the AJC’s Israeli partnership region (“Etzbah HaGalil” or the region north of the sea of Galilee). For the past 110 years, Ziv Medical Center has been serving the health needs of the region. Ziv Medical Center also provides medical services to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and UN personnel along with many Israelis visiting and vacationing from the center and south of Israel as well as to international tourists. The patients of Ziv Hopsital reflect the diversity of lsrael – Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Druze, Circassian and Bedouin. This diversity is also reflected in the staff who proudly work side by side.
The donation of the Bone Scalpel System will enable Ziv Hospital to continue providing optimal treatment to all of their patients, both those who live in the area or citizens from across the border who need their help, such as Syrian citizens who they have treated in the past and casualties from Lebanon who they have offered to treat after the explosion in Beirut.
David was a long-time member and supporter of the Atlantic Jewish Council, and we are thrilled that his legacy of generosity lives on in this way.
