On Sunday, Oct. 29, the Men’s Club and the Sisterhood of the Great Neck Synagogue raised over $200,000 to sponsor a medical intensive care unit ambulance and an intensive care medi-cycle motorcycle – equipped with advanced life support and intensive care modalities –  via the American Friends of Magen David Adom.

All funds raised will be matched by the generosity of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

In peaceful times, AFMDA builds the ambulances in America, and ships them to Israel via cargo ship, which takes many months to reach Israel.

The ongoing war has accelerated the need and demand for ambulances.  A generous donor has offered to speed up the process by flying the newly minted ambulances via cargo plane and paying for the expedited transportation of these life-saving vehicles.
