A Syrian woman gave birth to a healthy girl last weekend in Ziv Medical Center in Safed, and in gratitude gave the baby a Jewish name – Sarah, – Danny Brenner reports for Yisroel Hayom.
The woman came from a village in a region where every hospital and clinic had been destroyed, so she went to the Israeli border and was brought to the hospital by the Israel Defense Forces.
“When my husband heard I insisted on going to the border to give birth in a hospital, he asked that if she was born healthy, to give her a Jewish name in gratitude to Israel,” she said.
“I’ll never forget what you did here for my daughter Sarah and for me,” she said. “When Sarah grows up…I’ll tell her where she was born and why…we chose to call her Sarah.”
