Special CMDA appreciation night in Calgary: June 2

by Shael Gelfand and Sharon Fraiman

(Calgary) – While the military operation in Gaza continues with heartbreaking losses, an extremely tense conflict is playing out on Israel’s northern border, where Hezbollah-led forces continue to attack Israeli communities and military posts on a daily basis.

An all-out war with Hezbollah would mean severe damage to Israel’s north and potentially thousands of casualties. This is a scenario no one wants to see unfold, but it is a scenario Magen David Adom must be ready for. It is MDA’s duty to conduct regular training for all imaginable threats, and this is what MDA has been doing for years.

Given the ongoing terror attacks and the constant threat from rocket attacks in the north, MDA’s teams are on high-alert and continue to respond wherever and whenever needed.

MDA’s brave men and women have saved dozens of lives in recent weeks — people injured by rockets and terror attacks. Your support ensures that we can keep saving lives by providing the ambulances and medical equipment they so urgently need.

Am Israel Chai.

We are currently working on our special CMDA Annual event.

An evening filled with the taste and freshness of an Israeli Mediterranean Kosher dinner, combined with the stories from a frontline MDA speaker, and fantastic Israeli and local entertainment, awaits guests at the CMDA “Am Israel Chai” donor and supporter appreciation event on Sunday June 2.

Sharon Fraiman, the dynamic CMDA Western Region Director and her dynamo team of volunteers are busy planning a fantastic evening at the Carriage House Hotel and Conference Centre. While the event will be everything guests have come to expect from Sharon’s CMDA events there’s a very serious side. “Just imagine, since October 7 the pressure and demands on the MDA,” says Fraiman. “There are so many heroes, including the MDA team who continue to put themselves in harm’s way to save lives. That’s what this event is about, saving lives through our support.”

Keynote speaker Raphael Herbst, the Deputy Director, International Relations for CMDA will give his account on the attacks of October 7th.

The Am Israel Chai dinner features a menu of Israeli and Mediterranean dishes, each one selected by Sharon. Guests will be treated to the song stylings of Israeli musical sensation, Dor Shimon, a runner-up on the TV series Rising Star to Eurovision, and the popular local violinist Steven Klevsky,  who always entertains with his upbeat on all the tradition favourites.

“We are so grateful to our donors and supporters,” says Fraiman. “Am Israel Chai!”  Tickets are $125.00, sponsorship packages are available.  For tickets and more information please contact, Sharon Fraiman, CMDA Western Region Director at sfraiman@cmda.org or 587-435-5808.

We are looking forward to see all of you who support the life saving efforts of MDA in Israel.

There is nothing more important than saving lives.
