The partnership will be formally launched on National Israel Solidarity Day, held December 4, which the groups will also be co-sponsoring.

Pastors, church-goers and entire congregations from the NHCLC and HILC — which calls itself North America’s fastest-growing ethnic and faith community — are expected to attend.

Hadassah National President Ellen Hershkin said in a statement announcing the relationship, “[NHCLC and HILC’s] support and engagement will play a vital role in HMO’s ability to continue to provide world-class medical care to the people of Israel and beyond. Together, we will continue to save lives and build ‘bridges to peace.'”

“We are honored to support Hadassah’s mission in caring for the country and its people. This partnership enables us to fulfill our founding mission to engage, empower and equip the Latino born-again evangelical community in full support of Israel and the Jewish community around the world,” he said.

Hadassah’s two Jerusalem-based hospitals — at Mount Scopus and Ein Kerem — have been on the forefront of developing world-class medical services in Israel, including providing the Jewish state with its first nursing, medical and dental schools, as well as the country’s first cancer care center, burn unit and neo-natal care center.
