Surprising Scene at Hatzalah Office

Jewish and Muslim coworkers at Hatzalah of Israel were caught on film doing something which surprised and moved those around them.

By Raphael Poch - United Hatzalah

On Thursday evening two emergency response dispatchers from United Hatzalah in Jerusalem went on their shift break and took time out to pray in the break-room.

Both responders prayed their evening prayers, but they were of two different religions.

Working side by side as dispatchers, helping volunteers of all religions save the lives of all people from all backgrounds in Israel, allowed them to feel comfortable praying alongside one another in the same room at the same time. This is not something you get to see every day, but it is something that happens every day at the United Hatzalah headquarters and other places in Israel. The dual prayer was caught on film.

President and Founder of United Hatzalah Eli Beer saw the video and said the following: “One of the things not mentioned nearly enough in the media is the cooperation and friendships that are formed by people of different faiths working together to achieve a common goal.

"At United Hatzalah, we have volunteers and staff members of all faiths represented in Israel, working together to save lives. Volunteering side by side, day in and day out, achieves a bond of friendship between people of different faiths that is rarely seen in today’s polarizing world."

People, as this shows, would get along alot better if they put aside their differences and work towards a greater goal (including ahavas Yisroel!).

The Koran actually states that "people of the book" (I;e Jews and christians) are to be deeply respected and their respective books are considered legitimate-it's just that in Islam, the "final version" (with changes) was given to Mohammad. A lot of the animosity we feel now isn't due to clashing religious beliefs, rather its cultural and tribal clashes.

It's sad that seeing your fellow human beings get along doesn't resonate positively with you.

Praying together is better than killing each other

The reason for the hatred is due to the times we are in now - those of Golus. It is a promise that Eisav sone es Yaakov. They dont need a reason to hate us and the culture differences are surely, surely not what makes them hate us, as even assimilation does not help with anti-antisemitism.
What we need is the Geula - that will create true peace in the world.
