tions were held for five new MDA ambu-
lances and an MDA motorbike.
These 48 young adults performed a tre-
mendous mitzvah as they learned protocols
in Hebrew, served on ambulance teams and
treated many in life-threatening situations.
An MDA ambulance, featuring the names
of these volunteers from 2007-2014, is en

route to Israel and, along with a new Mobile
Intensive Care Unit ambulance sponsored
by Alvin and Henrietta Weisberg, will be
posted for service in Migdal HaEmek in
Detroit's Partnership2Gether region in the
Central Galilee.
A special highlight of the evening came
with the dedication of Natalie and Manny

Charach's 36th — "double-chai" — ambu-
lance, a Mobile Intensive Care Unit that
will be posted at the Michigan region-
sponsored MDA station in Ashdod.
It was a great night for all who were
honored, their friends and families,
AFMDA and their supporters and, most
importantly, the people of Israel.



More than 25
of the local
volunteers were
at the event,
including those
shown with
their special
ambulance,
the first in the
United States
to be dedicated
to young
adult MDA
volunteers.
