The Rishon Lezion, Chief Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef, came Laniado to take part in the “l’chayim” held annually for the medical, nursing and administrative staff in honor of the new year.   Rabbi Yosef expressed his best wishes for a good year, stating what a privilege those who work in the medical field have.
