“ And ye shall not harden your hearts against the poor and the needy, but heal them. ”

This quote from the 1,500-year-old oath for Jewish doctors was written by “Assaf Harofeh,” also known as Assaf the Doctor — long considered the Jewish Hippocrates.

His complete 1,000 word oath is still taken today by all students qualifying as physicians in Israel.

The Assaf Harofeh Medical Center is dedicated to his spirit and his teachings, which have provided inspiration and knowledge to all in
the pursuit of healing.

On the Front Lines, Fighting the Good Fight

PRIOR TO THE CREATION OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL, the site of Assaf Harofeh Medical Center first served as a British military hospital. After the 1948 War of Independence, the hospital became an Israeli medical
center, playing a vital role in caring for nearly a half million citizens in the surrounding area. Starting in 1950 as the National Center for Polio Victims, it has risen to become one of Israel’s top medical and teaching
facilities. Assaf Harofeh’s roots as a military hospital have not been forgotten. Today, as in the past, it serves our brave men and women of the Israeli Defense Forces throughout the country.

As is evident the hospital could always use support in such areas as: annual campaigns, building/renovation, capital campaigns, continuing support and general/operating support. We strongly believe that the American Friends of Assaf Harofeh Medical Center should be considered as a viable candidate for funding in the future.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration of our organization. Our medical center is dedicated to the spirit of this great physician, as he said “. . . and ye shall not harden your hearts against the poor and the needy, but heal them . . . .”
