JNS.org – At a time when Israel desperately needs some “serenity now” but hasn’t yet found it, comedy and television icon Jerry Seinfeld is doing his part for the Jewish state.

Seinfeld performed last week at the Los Angeles Red Star Ball of American Friends of Magen David Adom (AFMDA) — the U.S.-based support arm of Israel’s national ambulance, blood-services, and disaster-relief organization.

According to AFMDA, the funds raised for Magen David Adom on Oct. 22 surpassed the all-time record of $6 million that was raised at the same event last year. Magen David Adom has been particularly active in recent weeks, providing emergency medical care on the scene of numerous attacks during the current wave of terrorism in Israel.
