At a moving ceremony yesterday outside the 770 building in Kfar Chabad, a new ambulance was dedicated for the service of local residents.
Present at the ceremony were the Chief Rabbi of Kfar Chabad, Rabbi Ashkenazy, the director of Magen David Adom Eli Bein, the director of the Lod Valley Council Menashe Moshe, the director of the Kfar Chabad council Rabbi Binyamin Lifschitz, the head of operations at Magen David Adom Gil Moskowitz, and many more.
As Kfar Chabad is located at a strategic point in the central region, the heads of Magen David Adom understood the necessity of having an ambulance on call nearby. It would serve the residents of all of the surrounding areas, saving many lives. As well as dedicating the new ambulance, Magen David Adom installed a lifesaving and first aid box in the 770 building in order to assist volunteers in the future who may need to give medical attention.
As thousands of people visit the 770 building each year, it is extremely important to have such equipment on hand in the case of a possible emergency.
Afterwards, everyone went to the Rebbe’s room. There, the director of Magen David Adom spoke about his deep appreciation for the work of Chabad volunteers, who work very hard to save human life.
A meal was then served, during which Rabbi Ashkenazy spoke and said that he hoped that the ambulance would only be used for happy things. The leader of the Lod Valley Council recalled that a recent dedication of a fire truck in Kfar Chabad, the director of Magen David Adom had mentioned the need for an ambulance and now one has been supplied. Rabbi Lifschitz spoke on behalf of everyone when he thanked Magen David Adom for its initiative.
