Eli Beer, the founder and president of United Hatzalah of Israel will be guest speaker during Shabbat services at Congregation Brothers of Israel in Long Branch on June 22  to kick off its summer guest speaker series.

Beer took control of its command center and dispatched more than 1,700 volunteers to help evacuate and treat victims. Beer continued to work to coordinate with police, military and hospitals throughout Israel before leaving to go south to the Gaza periphery to set up a massive field hospital and dispatch system, which allowed United Hatzalah to save many more lives.

Beer has worked in emergency medical response since 1988 and lectures to health organization on various topics including  emergency response and tech innovation in the medical field.

Dessert reception will follow.

Peace of mind is a therapeutic intervention in which groups of 15-20 IDF veterans  who served together in a high-risk combat unit are hosted by a community for a week. During that time, with the help of two therapists they process their combat experiences  in a space where the can work through their trauma. Host communities agree to pay their expenses and house them. Being able to break from their daily routine and receive a warm welcome helps in their healing process as does being able to talk freely with therapists and each other. Past participants have reported an increased sense of social support and daily function as well as a lessening of depressive symptoms.

Cost is $25 to be earmarked used to support an IDF combat unit coming in the fall to the community.
