Shlomo is a Talmud instructor in a Yeshiva who lives with his wife and 12 children in the village of Neria. In addition to his teaching, communal and familial responsibilities, Shlomo is on call for medical emergencies 24/7, a task he has faithfully been fulfilling for more than 10 years. His presence in his small rural village provides the residents with a sense of security, knowing that there is always someone to turn to with medical issues both big and small.
Shlomo firmly believes in the value of helping other people, both physically and spiritually. He imparts these values to his family, who despite the challenges of having a father who is an EMT, understand the extreme importance of what he does. Shlomo believes in the supreme value of peace in the world of emergency responders. He stresses that when providing on-site treatment with EMT’s from other organizations, working with professionalism and teamwork for the good of the patient should be the EMT’s only concern. The sole focus should be doing the utmost to treat the patient at hand, nothing more and nothing less.
