Dear Hadassah International supporters,

In an article posted online about segregation in several of Israel’s maternity wards, Hadassah Medical Organization’s Director General Prof. Zeev Rotstein told the Forward Newspaper, “I can say loud and clear that all conflicts are ended before entering the hospital. Everyone is treated equally.” Hadassah’s two Jerusalem hospitals, he said, are an “island of peace” in the troubled city. Read the full article here:

We are outraged by other news accounts of incidents in Hadassah hospitals of maternity patients being segregated. As you know, Hadassah’s hospitals are strongly committed to upholding their policy to give all patients the best care, without regard for race, religion or ethnic origin, earning us a Nobel Peace Prize nomination.

Additionally, a new video recently created by Discovery Digital Networks was posted on Facebook this week.

Please share this article with the video and the Forward article link with your social network.
