Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem fields a world-class, lifesaving ‘dream team’ every day, but members of Shaare Zedek’s newest dream team didn’t go to medical school. Instead, they honed their own considerable skills on professional and college basketball courts around the world.

The American Committee for Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem is proud to participate in this year’s The Basketball Tournament on ESPN, and will compete for a winner-take-all $2 million cash prize. In accordance with the rules of the competition, Shaare Zedek has drafted an outstanding team including players who were very successful in the NBA, the Euro League and top-rated college programs. The rules also allow for fan participation, and for teams to advance in the competition based, in part, on how many fans they have signed up online by July 1, 2016.

Members of Team Shaare Zedek include captain David Blu, a 6’7” Maccabi Tel Aviv star who was a starter at USC from his sophomore year; Australian Cory Reader, 7’0”, who played professional ball for nine years including a stint with the LA Clippers; Chidi Ajufo, 6’6”, who starred for the Amstetten Falcons in Austria, the Essex Pirates in the UK, and S.C. Fukinese in Hong Kong; 6’1” Shawn Weinstein, who played for Elitzur Maccabi Netanya, as well as Talk-n-Text Tropang Texters in the Philippines; Jean Baptiste Rugiero, who played for Les Canonizers de Sainte-Marie Metz in France; and Bracin Skywalker, an Olympic hopeful who plays in the JBL National Pro-Am Basketball League on a team sponsored by LA Laker Metta World Peace.

    Shaare Zedek’s War: Fifty Years Since Jerusalem Was Reunified, A Look Back at Shaare Zedek’s Role in the Six Day War

Shaare Zedek’s War: Fifty Years Since Jerusalem Was Reunified, A Look Back at Shaare Zedek’s Role in the Six Day War

The Six Day War changed the course of Jewish history. When it was over, Jerusalem was no longer a divided city and the Temple Mount was in Jewish hands for the first time in two millennia. But as the fighting raged, Shaare Zedek, then located in its original home on Jaffa Road, was the hospital closest to the combat — just a few short kilometers from the front and under frequent Jordanian fire. The following is a brief account from the Hospital’s archive, including material that was previously published.
First Alert
In the early hours of Monday, June 5th, 1967, the telephone hotline from Israel’s military headquarters rang at Shaare Zedek. It was a short conversation, not lasting longer than 15 seconds. Neither did it take long for the Hospital’s well-oiled “State of Emergency” apparatus to begin to move at full speed. Phones soon rang at the homes of the hospital’s administrative and medical staff. Ambulances rushed out of the gate with urgent messages. Dr. Falk Schlesinger, the hospital’s director-general, arrived inside minutes.

Activity was intense. Groups of volunteers began to take up pre-assigned duties. The emergency generator was activated. Windows were covered with blackout material, sandbags strategically placed. Beds replaced desks. Even the hospital’s main corridors were soon lined with extra beds and stretchers. Ambulances and volunteers with their private cars swiftly evacuated many civilian patients whose release papers had been prepared by the doctors with detailed instructions for treatment at home — just in case.

The Brith Milah Hall, classrooms in the School of Nursing and the nurses’ own dormitories were soon converted into emergency wards. Basement areas were emptied to become shelters. Arrangements were made for volunteers from Shaare Zedek’s Ladies Auxiliary to care for more >
