As many of you may remember, this is the time of year I go back to Jerusalem to work in the DVI dental clinic so that I could help treat the many indigent children there in dire need of dental care. As we all know the world economic situation has deteriorated terribly. While this affects us all, it is the poor that are most grievously impacted. Thatʼs why itʼs more important than ever to go back. I was out of the office from April 29th until May 7th.
I went to Jerusalem with a suitcase full of dental supplies and returned with the memory of a bunch of new smiles from the children. This year we were one dentist short so the work load was heavy but I loved it!
In addition, this fall will be the 30th anniversary of the founding of the clinic by the late Trudi Birger. There is a gala event being planned for November in New York City. If you are interested in attending, please let us know so we can get you more information. If you would like to help out the clinic, any donation would be appreciated. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the IRS tax codes. The address is:
