Every hospital in Israel is committed to defending the health of Israel. But in so many ways, Soroka Medical Center is not like other hospitals in Israel. It is the only major medical center in the entire southern half of Israel, the Negev, and is responsible for the care of over a million people, including 400,000 children and youth. Known for its premier medical care and dedicated staff, Soroka treats a profoundly diverse society which includes Jews of all nationalities and backgrounds, Arabs, Bedouins and refugees. With nearly 250,000 patients a year, Soroka is by far the busiest Emergency Room in all of Israel.
Soroka’s close proximity to the Gaza Strip also makes it a strategic “front line” hospital, responding to trauma patients from the Israel Defense Forces. Soroka’s staff treated hundreds of injured soldiers and civilians during the 2009 Gaza war, and Soroka continues to treat the injured during terror attacks in Israel’s South, and after Qassam missile attacks from Gaza.
We are also specialists in the treatment of children. The state of the art Saban Pediatric Center ensures top-quality care for sick kids, in a holistic, familial environment. Our Women’s Health Clinic works towards breast health and treatment of women’s cancers and diseases. And our world-class Trauma Center helps young and old to recovery – both physically and psychologically – to recover from traumatic events.
We invite you to read all about our programs and our newest innovations and to learn about how you can partner with Soroka to support the people of Israel, and help Soroka to continue to be one of Israel’s most strategic assets.
Did you know?
Soroka serves a region that accounts for 60% of Israel’s total land area.
200,000 patients, including 38,000 children, visit Soroka’s emergency rooms each year, making it the busiest emergency facility in Israel.
Soroka’s psychiatrists participated in the discovery of the first two genes responsible for non-excessive personality traits: the “adventurous” gene and the “neurosis” gene.
There is an average of 36 births every single day at Soroka, a whole new classroom of Israeli children born every day!
Soroka’s cardiologists are leaders in cardiac molecular biology, researching a revolutionary treatment for myocardial infarction using genetic engineering.
Soroka is Israel’s second largest medical center and the single largest employer in the Negev.Our doctors and mobile units travel to remote kibbutz clinics, development towns and Bedouin tents, offering on-site medical care.
Soroka treats victims of terrorism and also serves the large contingent of Israeli soldiers stationed in the Negev.
We are an educational organization created to support an undivided Israel.
AFSI was founded in 1970 as an American counterpart to the Land of Israel Movement, asserting Israel’s historic, religious, and legal rights to the land re-gained in the 1967 war. AFSI has argued consistently that a strong, territorially defensible Israel is essential to U.S. and global security interests in the region, and that the “two-state solution,” would endanger the world, while bringing the dissolution of Israel.
We are a national organization with chapters throughout the country and members throughout the world. All are dedicated to the premise that a strong Israel is essential to Western interests in the Middle East, and that the Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and the Golan are the best guarantee against strategic vulnerability, as were the Gush Katif communities.
AFSI supports a policy of “peace for peace” between the Arab states and Israel, and rejects “peace for territory.” AFSI opposes spending U.S. tax dollars, estimated to be in the billions, to fund a phantom “peace” plan.
Send a message to the detractors of Israel in the media, the Administration, and the public by joining AFSI and becoming active in your community chapter.
Jewish International Connection
JICNY is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization founded in December 2000 by Steve Eisenberg and Jodi & Gavin Samuels.
Jewish International Connection of New York fosters Jewish identity among young internationals, in their 20s and 30s, through diverse and inspiring Jewish experiences together with NYC Jews.
In December 2000 we had our first Shabbat dinner for Australians and South Africans living in the New York. From this event our community has grown to over 8,000 people over the past ten years and 94 couples met through JICNY. With an emphasis on high-quality programming and wide scale affiliation, JICNY is a United Nations of sorts, with people from all over the world gathering on a regular basis for social, cultural and religious events.
Programs include a highly successful weekly Torah class, led by Steve Eisenberg on the Upper West Side, followed by a Jewish history series and unique Torah classes, held in multiple languages which typically include English, Spanish, French and Russian.
Other JICNY events include: lectures, walking tours of Jewish neighborhoods, bi-weekly networking events, Israel advocacy program and couples events. We host a film club that raises money each month for a different charity. We also plan an annual learning mission to Israel that has enjoyed great success. In 2012 we had over 10,000 people attend over 200 events.
Our monthly Shabbat dinners feature guest speakers from around the world. We have less formal Shabbat meals and social events throughout the month, as well. Founder, Steve Eisenberg sets hundreds of young professionals up with welcoming places to have the Shabbat meal every year. Over the years founders, Gavin and Jodi Samuels have had over 10,000 people attend meals in their home. We recognize the interest and value of the Jewish international community in New York through all of our successes and for this reason we have created the JICNY Networking Group in order to expand on what we have previously been able to offer in the way of networking.
Living in a foreign country that is so diverse and independent, it is comforting to know that there is a place you can go where you will always be welcome; you will be able to explore your heritage and spirituality; and you will be supported by the community that surrounds you.

Aish.com, a 3-time winner of USA Today’s Hot Site award, has been heralded for its technical sophistication and sleek graphic design. James Besser, the New York Jewish Week columnist, writes: “The supersite, Aish.com, reacting to the blinding speed of changes on the web, [produces] results that will turn most other Jewish content providers green with envy…”
Aish.com features include:
24-hour live webcam from the Western Wall, which has logged 20 million visits and been featured on CNN, MSNBC, and The New York Times cutting-edge blogs in audio, video and text formats.

Aish.com’s impact has been far and wide. A recent survey found that 86% of readers said that Aish.com has inspired them to do more Torah learning, and 75% said that Aish.com has led them to increased affiliation with Jewish organizations or increased attendance at synagogue.
Headquartered in Jerusalem near the Western Wall, Aish.com is a division of Aish HaTorah, an apolitical network of Jewish educational centers in 35 branches on five continents. This partnership enables Aish.com users to experience the richness of community at an Aish branch.
The name Aish HaTorah literally means “Fire of Torah.” As Elie Weisel said: “Aish HaTorah means to me the passion of teaching, the passion of learning. The study of Torah, the source of Jewish values, is the way to Jewish survival.”
Aish’s educational philosophy is that Judaism is not all or nothing; it is a journey where every step counts, to be pursued according to one’s own pace and interest. Mitzvot (commandments) are not rituals, but opportunities for personal growth, to be studied and understood. We learn the Torah’s wisdom to enrich our own lives, and to share these ideas with all humanity.
As a non-profit organization, Aish.com relies solely on private support to continue providing its wide range of quality content. Plans for the near future include an advanced learning site, and an online Hebrew School.
Not just information, but inspiration. Aish.com is the lifeline for hundreds of thousands of people across the globe, seeking Jewish answers to life’s most perplexing issues
The mission of SAFE is to provide our clients and their families with counseling, and support in dealing with addiction; and to educate all members of our community on the dangers of addiction and its prevention.
SAFE was created in 2003 to assist and help those within the Brooklyn Midwood community experiencing the difficulties with drug addiction, alcoholism and compulsive gambling in a confidential outpatient setting.
PROGRAMS & SERVICES
SAFE OUTPATIENT DRUG, ALCOHOL AND GAMBLING TREATMENT MODEL
SAFE is a New York State licensed drug, alcohol and gambling outpatient treatment program located in Brooklyn, NY. SAFE provides high quality treatment for those who are clinically appropriate for that level of care. Pre admission interviews and screening with a SAFE professional will help determine if the outpatient program is a suitable option. Candidates for SAFE’s outpatient treatment programs are those who do not require medically supervised detoxification or stabilization; have stable mental and physical health; have had few if any prior treatment experiences; and have a supportive home and work environment.
Patients will receive psychological, social and alcohol and drug assessments and an individualized treatment plan as well as continuing care recommendations. Therapeutic techniques include lectures, group therapy, one-to-one counseling, Twelve Step meetings, spirituality work and peer interaction.
Because we believe chemical dependency affects the entire family, family involvement is rigorously encouraged. Treatment at SAFE is provided by a multi-disciplinary team, seamlessly coordinating medical, behavioral, alternative and twelve-step modalities in a dignified recovery environment. We are always sensitive to our clients’ special circumstances and responsive to their needs and concerns. Confidentiality is carefully maintained and privacy is always respected. Our earliest objective is to build a trusting relationship. SAFE is a supportive environment that promotes program participation and cultivates a positive attitude toward recovery.
THE FIRST STEP
For many clients, contact with the SAFE is the first contact they have with a treatment provider. The treatment process usually begins with a call from a potential client, family member, employer or school.
An initial assessment of the client’s status will be conducted by either a certified or master’s level addiction counselor or a licensed social worker. Treatment needs are then established and an appropriate recommendation is made. If detoxification is indicated, an outpatient detoxification schedule will be started or client will be referred for inpatient treatment, if necessary.
SAFE’s staff consists of certified addictions counselors, master’s level addiction counselors and mental health professionals to meet our patients’ needs.
