Canadian Friends of Sheba held a fantastic fundraiser on October 17th. For the first time in nearly two years, friends and supporters met in person to celebrate Sheba’s achievements of Women in Health.

The delicious brunch was held at The Boulevard venue in Toronto and The Spanish & Portuguese Synagogue in Montreal, along with other friends across Canada virtually joined the live stream of the TedTalk style presentations of leading Sheba doctors.

We enjoyed lectures from the following Sheba doctors:

Prof. Tzipi Strauss, Director of the Neonatology Department

Prof. Michal Beeri, Director of the Joseph Sagol Center for Neuroscience Research

Dr. Galia Barkai, Director of Sheba BEYOND, Director of Pediatric Infectious Disease Unit

The audience was engaged and participants—both in person and virtually—inquired about a variety of topics. The silent auction was very successful too, we displayed 17 prizes donated from the local community.

We would like to thank our loyal supporters, sponsors and dedicated volunteers that helped throughout the event. Funds raised at the event go to the support of Sheba Medical Center, Israel’s largest hospital and a top world hospital.

Whether helping those most in need or advancing healthcare globally:
when you support Sheba, you are making a difference.
