Concerning “Seeing Red at Magen David Adom” (Jan. 28, “In The Beginning”), American Friends of Magen David Adom (AFMDA) has a proud legacy of service to Israel, starting before the establishment of the state. Our 71-year history of dedicated support for Magen David Adom has been a close and warm one. Like all organizations raising funds for Israeli institutions, there have been cultural disagreements; however, the bonds between us remain strong and unbroken.
In recent days, American Friends of Magen David Adom has taken steps to put these issues behind us and to move forward, together with MDA, to serve Israel’s people with the fiduciary safeguards in place that generations of our supporters expect from us.
AFMDA Interim National Chairman
