Magen David Adom friends filled the cinema at Westfield on Sunday November 20 to see a mouth-watering documentary about food from all over Israel. “In Search of Israeli Cuisine” portrayed a diverse, multi-cultural society which has adapted a huge variety of foods and food styles to its own lifestyle and taste.
The evening commenced with a raffle with a wide range of generous prizes.
Josh Bolot, MDA Board member, was the MC for the evening. In his welcome, Josh highlighted the wonderful support of the NSW community as reflected in the recent donation by NSW Friends of MDA of 21 Medicycles and an ambulance to MDA Israel, whilst lamenting that these are still so vitally necessary. He revealed that MDA “also has a recipe. We blend 13,000 volunteers from all parts of society, mix in 730,000 phone calls and 300,000 blood units, add 900 vehicles, sprinkle in the support and love of international friends like us in New South Wales, and dispatch from 124 stations. This serves life-saving support in Israel all day, every day regardless of race or religion and contributes to international humanitarian situations.“
