Walking through the halls of Shaare Zedek Medical Center one is often greeted by the warm smile of one of our volunteers. Our dedicated volunteers include several hundred people who come on a regular basis as well as hundreds more who come from time to time. We are very thankful for the all of their efforts on behalf of Shaare Zedek and everything that they do to help our patients and our staff.
Today, roughly 400 volunteers enjoyed a special gathering in appreciation of all of their hard work. Professor Jonathan Halevy, the Director General of Shaare Zedek; Mr. Avraham (Avi) Harrari, the Deputy Director of General Administration and Ms. Ayelet Cohen, the Head of Volunteer Services thanked the volunteers. The volunteers also enjoyed a fascinating presentation about the life and works of Naomi Shemer.
Ms. Ayelet Cohen shared, "Our volunteers are an integral part of the hospital and they work very hard. They have a very significant impact on our patients' experiences and we are grateful to each and every one of them. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to thank all of them and to show our appreciation."
