Israeli victims of Brussels bombing leave hospital in time for Passover

Chaim Winternitz will never forget the twin blasts that shook Brussels’s Zaventem Airport on March 22, leaving him paralyzed with 17 shrapnel wounds across his entire body, a broken leg and damaged hearing. Last week, barely a month later, the 28-year-old Jerusalem man left Hadassah-University Medical Center’s orthopedic department in Ein Kerem to celebrate Passover with his wife and five children.

Winternitz, who will begin a lengthy process of physical therapy at the hospital after the holiday, credits the Jerusalem- based charity Saad V’Marpe for its assistance.
