As part of the “Bleed B’nei Akiva Dry” campaign, last week over 100 student members of the Orthodox Zionist youth movement gave blood, including 40 first-time donors. Stations were set up in Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Cambridge and London university campuses. “We want to educate our members in the practical ways they can make a difference to society at large,” said BA’s education director, Zak Jeffay. He said that after “phenomenal support for the programme”, the movement intends to run a second one in four months’ time — the required waiting period between donations.
