The Heschel debate team swept the competition at the Yeshiva of Flatbush. Heschel won all of their matches, and earned awards for 1st-place speaker, 1st-place team, and 2nd-place school.
Each whole blood unit will be separated into red cells, platelets, and plasma – so the 58 units our drive brought in times 3, plus the 12 red cell units from the ALYX donations will result in a total of 186 "doses" of lifesaving medicine which will go on to touch the lives of that many patients.
Thank you to everyone's support of this effort - to the Hesed Council for spearheading the drive, to teachers for their flexibility to allow students to donate, and to all our donors. A huge thank you to the New York Blood Center for making this possible - especially the amazing blood technicians who took such fantastic care of all our donors.
We are grateful to the New York Blood Center who shipped 20 units of Type O- blood to Florida this morning to help replenish supplies after yesterday's tragedy. Type O- is the universal blood type which is needed in an emergency – before patients can be typed and cross-matched.
Mark your calendars - those who donated whole blood can donate again on April 11, 2018!
Seniors in honors and accelerated Hebrew classes recently learned about "the Israeli kitchen." The unit culminated with students from both classes working together to follow Israeli recipes in Hebrew, preparing a variety of desserts.
