Pledge of Support and Solidarity from TAU School of Medicine’s American Program Alumni

"We are here for you just as you were for us"

Our community has been in a tailspin since learning of the heinous, sadistic, and barbaric atrocities committed by Hamas. These acts, perpetrated against innocent civilians, have shaken us to our core. We recognize that Israel needs to defend her people, and that war is an unfortunate reality.


While we are not soldiers, we are well-trained experts in our respective fields. We would like to offer these skills in order to contribute in meaningful ways, in an effort to repay the debt of gratitude we owe you.


Israel is where we learned to be healers. We studied how to care for those in their most vulnerable state, at the worst moments of their lives. Tel Aviv University is our alma mater, and we are proud to be a part of your legacy. Your world-class institutions, renowned hospitals, and esteemed physicians trained us.


You allowed us to actualize our dreams of becoming physicians, and imparted to us the value of life and the importance of its preservation. We who have dedicated our careers to enhancing the well-being of others see this opportunity to support you as the only possible response.


We, the undersigned, are committed to your well-being, to returning to our roots, to our wards, and to our people. We are here for you just as you were for us. It would be an honor and a privilege to serve you. We have taken the steps to enroll in the Ministry of Health’s database of medical volunteers. We await the call.
