“Stop the Bleed” – Sunday, December 15 @ 2:00 p.m. @ Merrick Jewish Centre – FREE

Stop the Bleed

Over the last few years, we have seen synagogues and other houses of worship become the target of violent attacks by hate-filled extremists.   We need only think of the horrific shootings at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh or at the Chabad in Poway, California to be reminded of this terrible reality.

As a community, we must do what we can to protect and preserve life.

A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is vitally important to quickly stop the blood loss. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene.

The Stop the Bleed program teaches civilians the skills and basic tools to stop uncontrolled bleeding in such an emergency situation, so they are able to provide immediate aid until first responders are able to take over care of an injured person.

Without civilian intervention in these circumstances, preventable deaths will occur.

On Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 2:00 p.m., the Merrick-Bellmore Jewish Community Council is sponsoring a FREE Stop the Bleed training at the Merrick Jewish Centre, located at 225 Fox Blvd in Merrick.

This FREE and CRUCIAL training lasts only one hour, and will be provided by certified  instructors from Nassau University Medical Center.    Pre-registration is required, as space is limited.

The AIPAC Policy Conference is the largest annual gathering of America’s pro-Israel community.  It takes place between March 24-26 in Washington, D.C., and is filled with opportunities to learn more about the U.S.-Israel relationship and to engage with more than 18,000 pro-Israel activists from all over the nation.

The AIPAC Policy Conference features General Sessions with American, Israeli, and world leaders, hundreds of breakouts with leading experts, and the AIPAC Village which is the central gathering place where delegates and speakers can interact, view special exhibits, and catch up with friends.  On the final day of the conference, delegates travel to Capitol Hill to lobby members of Congress face to face.
