The shul has been very fortunate to have received a donation for the purpose of buying a defibrillator. These machines are becoming more common in public places and are designed to be used by anyone, even without training. We recently held a First Aid training, where our group leaders, Board and even the Rabbi were trained in CPR. They were then shown how to use the defibrillator once they had mastered the vital skills of resuscitation.
The training was provided by a Red Cross Trainer, organised via Magen David Adom at no charge to the shul. We are very grateful to the MDA for their support. As this session was oversubscribed we are planning another soon.
