An emotional – and a bit macabre – reunion

Every one of the 200 people who came to the auditorium of Shaare Zedek Medical Center last Thursday knew that the event did not signify the end of the current wave of terrorism.

But the Jerusalem hospital’s management wanted to create a “breather,” with survivors whose lives were saved entering the building through the main entrance instead of by ambulances to the emergency department and trauma rooms; and the doctors, nurses, social workers and technical staff wanted to see them coming in on their own two feet, even though a few came using crutches. There were also Magen David Adom and United Hatzalah paramedics and medics who had treated them at the scene and rushed them to the hospital.
