Magen David Adom (MDA) Paramedic Oren Wacht visited Thomas Jefferson University Hospital to share his 15 years of emergency medical experience with local EMTs, medical students and ER physicians. Israel’s experience with war and terror attacks has made the nation’s first-responders the world’s leading experts in mass-casualty emergency medical response. More than 60 people attended the lecture, which included hands-on training and Oren’s personal narrative of saving lives during wartime. Wacht, a Tel Aviv native, studied emergency medicine at Ben Gurion University and became involved with MDA in 2001. MDA is Israel’s national ambulance, blood-services and disaster-relief organization. Wacht also joined American Friends of Magen David Adom’s (AFMDA) Greater Philadelphia Area Director Sharon Schmidt for a presentation at Congregation Mikveh Israel on Sept. 9.

Ahead of the pope’s historic visit at the end of September, people across all backgrounds came together in unity — such as a group of parishioners who spent a few nights at Congregation Beth-El Ner Tamid in Broomall. A group of 50 — 15 adults and 35 students of all ages — from Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Bowling Green, Ky., came to the synagogue to celebrate the pope’s visit and to engage in a cultural exchange, and were even treated to eighth-row seats for the mass, courtesy of some behind-the-scenes efforts from the synagogue members.
