Hillary Sends Letter of Support to United Hatzalah Founder

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton expressed her appreciation of the work United Hatzalah of Israel is doing in a personal letter she sent last week to founder Eli Beer.

As recently reported by Jewish Insider, Beer bumped into Clinton last month during a flight to Chicago. “You’re a big supporter of Israel, you know that?” Beer told the presidential hopeful as she nodded her head in agreement in a video he posted on Facebook. “[You should] continue.”

“I will,” Hillary replied.

Beer then briefed her about his organization.

On November 19th, Hillary sent a letter, with a campaign logo header, to Beer saying “it was a pleasure meeting you” and hearing about the work his organization does, especially in the wake of the recent wave of terror across Israel. “Thank you for the information you shared about United Hatzalah, and please know how grateful I am for your leadership of such an important organization,” Hillary wrote. “The work you do providing rapid emergency medical response throughout Israel – and an increasing number of countries throughout the world – is saving lives and making a remarkable impact.”

“I look forward to learning more about your innovative model, and am sending you and your colleagues my best wishes for continued success with your lifesaving work,” she added.

“It was very nice to meet her a few weeks ago on the flight to Chicago and I deeply appreciate her recognition of United Hatzalah of Israel as an organization whose mission of saving lives here in Israel, transcends race, religion, and political affiliations,” Beer wrote as he shared the letter on Facebook. “United Hatzalah made a real revolution in the EMS in Israel and now going around the world with United Rescue.”
