Guest Speaker Eli Beer from 
United Hatzalah in Israel
Rabbi's Message
Sometimes there are just no words.  This is how I am sure we all collectively feel ever since we heard the awful news out of Pittsburgh last Shabbat.
To be honest, I found out during Kiddush when local police came to the building to check up on us.  When Shabbat ended, I was quite hesitant to turn on my phone, because I knew what would follow.
I am struggling to find the right words to share with you this  coming Shabbat, but I ask you to please join us so that we can at least share (whatever it may be) with one another.  We share Smachot, we share Aveilut and we share communal pain.  That is what community means.  
I look forward to seeing everyone in Shul.

Shabbat Shalom
Kiddush Sponsor

Eli Beer was born in Israel, where he witnessed his first terror attack at the age of seven. This traumatic experience, coupled with his desire to help save people, encouraged him to become a volunteer medic. Beer has been involved in emergency medical first response in Israel since 1988. With 25 years of life-saving experience, he has responded to some of the worst civil, wartime and terror-related incidents. He currently serves as Founder and President of United Hatzalah; featured speaker at TEDMED and AIPAC; lecturer to health organizations worldwide on the importance of receiving medical care within the first few minutes of an incident through a network of volunteers; has expertise in creating cohesive and integrated responses to mass casualty incidents as well as terrorist attacks; is a pioneer in the field of GPS-based technology for medical response; recipient of awards, including the 2010 Social Entrepreneur for Israel received by the Schwab Foundation, the 2011 Presidential Award for Volunteerism in Israel received by President Shimon Peres, and the 2012  Young Global Leader award. Married with 5 children and when not saving lives or guiding United Hatzalah, he manages the family real estate company, Beer Realty.
