As we wrestle with the realities that continue to unfold before us each day, we hold tight to the belief that each and every life is sacred. As Jews, we are committed to the halachic value of Pikuach Nefesh (the preservation of human life).

As a congregation, we want to channel our emotions and our longing to help our people into a meaningful and lasting project. By purchasing an ambulance for Magen David Adom, we are supporting a critical need at this challenging time and serving people for years to come. Magen David Adom comes to the aid of all people, regardless of religion or race. As the only emergency responders in Israel, they are called in the aftermath of an attack as well as the more “usual” health emergencies. So, while we pray for peaceful days ahead, there will always be a need for a life-saving fleet.



Additional ways to support

Employer Matching:

Join us in supporting the Magen David Adom's ambulance fund by leveraging your employer's matching gift program1. This can significantly increase your donation's impact, potentially doubling or tripling it. As the year ends, it's a crucial time to amplify your contribution. Most of Magen David Adom's fleet is funded by Americans, and your support is vital.

In this emergency period in Israel, every second counts. Americans sponsor the majority of Magen David Adom's fleet and, with the support of the wider Beth El community as well as our friends, families, and employers, medics can race to the scene with the most sophisticated medical response fleet available. 

Two Ways to Match!

1. Coordinate with your employer for a matching gift to Beth El's Magen David Adom Ambulance Campaign.

2. If your employer doesn't match gifts to religious organizations, donate directly to American Friends of Magen David Adom and mention 'Beth El Magen David Adom Ambulance Campaign' in the comments. Email Dan Swartz ( with your donation details and employer's matching amount.

If you'd like assistance, please reach out to Dan Swartz ( who can help with the appropriate forms, guidelines, and instructions. Remember, this fundraiser is for Magen David Adom, which is officially recognized by the ICRC as the national society for the State of Israel. They hold a 4/4 rating on Charity Navigator, the highest possible score 

1Some employers are providing additional matching funds for donations to Israel, so even if you've already used this year's employer match, you may want to check if special matching funds are available.
