The State of Israel has come to the rescue of numerous Jewish communities and individuals since its establishment. Israel has been among the first to send help when disaster strikes around the globe. Leora Pushett will explore some examples from the last 60+ years including Operations Magic Carpet and Ezra & Nechemia, Operation Thunderbolt and Operation Solomon, Israel's response to crises in Haiti, Nepal, and other international locales. We will also delve into the values-based considerations that influence Israel’s swift and far-reaching actions.
