Laniado's Haggadah is in big demand

Over £10,000 has been raised for Netanya’s Laniado Hospital from sales of the Laniado Haggadah by its UK support group and specialist bookshops.

Sponsored by Nicole and Yoyo Allalouf, the Haggadah includes illustrations by young Laniado patients.

More than 450 copies have been purchased, with an order for 50 placed by Merrill Lynch vice-president Victor Polak, who said: “It is a great honour to assist in this project for a special hospital like Laniado, serving all faiths and races.”

Laniado campaign director Gaby Blauer said that proceeds would benefit the hospital’s new children centre.
