Jewish Doctor Makes House Calls to Ailing Palestinians – Anav Silverman
To the villagers of Wadi Nis and six other Palestinian villages in the Gush Etzion region of the West Bank, Dr. Yitzchak Glick, a U.S.-born Jewish doctor from Efrat, is a familiar and welcome face. The doctor, who made aliyah with his parents in 1974, makes personal house calls every week, providing medical treatment to ailing Palestinians free of charge.
“The people here don’t forget what I and other doctors from Efrat have done – from treating expectant mothers and providing free medicine to saving lives, you become part of their families,” he says. The connection runs so deep that the Arab villagers have alerted Efrat authorities on several occasions against terror cells on their way to the community. (Huffington Post)
