Nefesh B’Nefesh has compiled a database of Jewish and non-Jewish physicians and physician assistants willing to volunteer in hospitals and medical organizations to address Israel’s healthcare needs during wartime. The non-profit organization has partnered with the Health Ministry, Immigration and Integration Ministry, and the Jewish Agency to address the increased demand for medical professionals in conflict-affected areas. The database includes the volunteers’ medical specialties, Hebrew-language proficiency, and necessary documentation for obtaining temporary Israeli medical licenses. Participating physicians are expected to dedicate an average of two weeks to volunteering, with some choosing to extend their stay. Over 70 doctors have already arrived in Israel, providing critical assistance in various medical facilities. The initiative is made possible by the sponsorship of the Marcus Foundation, committed to making a positive impact on communities and individuals.
