Our Mission


The American Friends of Laniado Hospital was founded in 1972 in the United States by a group of Holocaust survivors, disciples of the Sanz-Klauzenburger Rebbe, zt”l, to help him fulfill the vow he made during the Holocaust when he was seriously wounded during a Death March between Warsaw and Dachau.

At the time he made a vow to the Almighty that if he survived he would build a hospital in Israel where anyone requesting medical attention would never be turned away.

We at the American Friends of Laniado Hospital have a defined mission – to enable the continuous building and expansion of this outstanding Medical Center that the Rebbe, zt”l built.

The challenge is huge and it can only be accomplished with the aid of you, our dear friends and supporters.
