Dr. Amram Cohen, an Israeli heart surgeon who helped bring some 700 children from poor countries to the Jewish state for life-saving operations, died Aug. 16 at 47 while climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Cohen, who immigrated to Israel from the United States in 1992, brought the children to Israel through the Save a Child’s Heart foundation, an organization he created.
