Emergency COVID-19 Appeal

Australian Friends of Shaare Zedek Days of Awe Campaign


Days of Awe This year Yom Kippur will be one like no other in living memory.  The COVID-19 pandemic has upended so much of what is so important in our lives.  The Jewish Days of Awe leading up to Yom Kippur have extra resonance this year.

An Awful Challenge Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Jerusalem is serving on the frontline of the battle against Covid19 as one of Israel’s most active Corona response hospitals. The pandemic is placing a huge burden on the hospital’s resources as it fights the virus whilst continuing to provide medical care for a myriad of urgent medical conditions.

Awesome Dedication Shaare Zedek’s Director General Prof Ofer Merin recently stated, “We continue to stand in awe at our medical and logistical staff on all levels for their continued unwavering efforts to provide the uncompromised care for which Shaare Zedek is so famous.”

Shaare Zedek has the largest biobank in Israel and is actively involved in both treating Covid19 and in research projects to optimise prevention and treatment of the disease.

Your Awesome Generosity We understand that these are difficult times for our local community.  If you are unable to help us financially, we thank you for your generosity in the past and look forward to your future support.   However, if you can help us, this Erev Yom Kippur is the time to support this crucial cause.

Let’s unite and help Shaare Zedek buy a life-saving transport respirator as a gift from the Australian Jewish Community.

A transport respirator costs $AUD50,000 and is urgently needed at Shaare Zedek right now.  This critical life-sustaining equipment will help patients with compromised respiratory systems both during this pandemic and beyond.

Please support this crucial cause.  We deeply appreciate your generosity especially during these challenging times.  We wish our friends around the world a Shana Tova.  May the new year be one of good health, success and peace.
