Magen David Adom Sends Disaster Aid

Download PDF for this date

Magen David Adom, Israel’s Red Cross equivalent, has rushed urgently needed medical supplies to help the victims of Hurricane Gilbert in Jamaica.

The Israeli Embassy in Kingston, the Jamaican capital, compiled a list of supplies requested by rescue teams.

They were sent via El Al, Israel’s national airline, without charge to the Caribbean nation.

Because of Sukkot, JTA will not publish the Daily News Bulletin on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
