Rabbi in life-saving rescue missions in India E-mail

As a trained paramedic for emergency services group United Hatzalah in India, Chabad envoy Rabbi Menachem Bakush continues to save lives.

“It’s our job to help people wherever they are and to save their lives. I consider this a great mission,” the rabbi explained to the local newspaper Mako News.

A few days later, he had treated an Israeli traveller who had altitude sickness, and even volunteered to fly with her to a New Delhi hospital for further medical treatment.

During his volunteering expedition, the rabbi has saved the life of another Israeli hiker, who fell from a 40-foot waterfall in the Manali area. He was the first responder on the scene, and was able to administer medical treatment.

As thanks, large group of hikers created a Facebook post to praise the rabbi for his important work in saving human lives.
