Bahraini Ambassador to Israel Lights Hanukkah Candles at Sheba
Sheba Medical Center hosted a Hanukkah candle-lighting ceremony on Sunday night, December 5, with the Bahraini Ambassador to Israel H.E. Khaled Yusuf Al Jalahma to celebrate the Abraham Accords and the collaborations that have resulted from them.
This was the first candle-lighting celebration and public event with the new Bahraini ambassador.
The Abraham Accords were signed in August 2020. Even before their signing, Sheba had been working in various low-key capacities with some countries in the Gulf region. Since then, it has signed multiple deals to work together with Bahraini and Emirati medical partners.
“Healthcare is the most powerful engine of growth in life,” said Sheba director-general Prof. Yitshak Kreiss. “Fueled by the notion that healthcare is a non-political issue with no barriers in terms of what can be shared in health, together with the government of Bahrain, we devised the ‘Prosperity Through Healthcare’ initiative to change the future of the Middle East.
“I am excited to see this friendship and partnership grow,” he said.
“I am honored to celebrate Hanukkah with Sheba Medical Center, who have become great partners to the Kingdom of Bahrain in a very short period of time, becoming instrumental for building people-to-people relations between our two countries,” the ambassador said, adding that the collaboration between Sheba and two of the country’s government hospitals will lead to the creation of an exchange program, fellowships and training courses.
