Bnai Zion mourns the loss of

Executive Vice President, Jack Grunspan

Jack joined Bnai Zion as a member in 1973 and over the years served as a volunteer in numerous capacities including chairman

of the Finance Committee and President of the Doctor Harris J Levine Chapter. In 1998 he was elected National Secretary and joined the staff as Director of Development, using his background in estate planning to lecture and fundraise nationwide and expand the profile of the organization. In 2006 he was named Executive Vice President.

His dedication to Bnai Zion and to the people of Israel is an inspiration to us all. He was a real mensch and will be truly missed.

Our hearts go out to his wife Judi, his children Rachel and David (Penny), his grandchildren Samantha and Daniel, and may his entire family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.


Bnai Zion Medical Center Ranked #1 in Country

A recent survey of 11,000 people conducted by the Israeli Ministry of Health concluded that among the medium size hospitals (200-800 beds), the Bnai Zion Medical Center received the highest score for patient satisfaction with 81%. Hospitals were also evaluated based on their physical conditions. The Bnai Zion Medical Center and Hadassah were ranked first in the medium size category as well.


We Care About Protecting Israel

The CEO of the Bnai Zion Medical Center, Dr. Amnon Rofe, has said, "Unfortunately, the threat of attack is significant. We've begun construction of a new protected underground emergency facility, fortified against nuclear, biological and chemical attack, that will help us save lives - but we need additional funding to complete it. Please make our priority yours."

Watch this short video in which Dr. Rofe discusses the current situation.

"Bnai Zion, the American Fraternal Organization, has throughout the years distinguished itself as a group of devoted people who, in addition to steadfast support of the Zionist ideal, have contributed to the welfare and well-being of the State of Israel. Particularly noteworthy among the projects you have promoted are the Bnai Zion Medical Center and the home for retarded children in Rosh Ha’ayin. This combination of moral support and charitable deeds is deserving of praise."

 -- Shimon Peres, Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, February 1988
