Israeli help for eight Haiti victims

By Jessica Elgot, January 18, 2010


Israeli emergency volunteers from ZAKA rescued eight students from the rubble of a flattened university building in Port au-Prince, Haiti.

The six-team ZAKA worked for 38 hours with a Mexican military team to rescue the students, continuing over Shabbat.
Commander of the ZAKA mission to Haiti Mati Goldstein told Ynet:“With all the hell going on outside, even when things get bad, Judaism says we must take a deep breath and go on to save more people.”
