Medical Miracle

Who better to describe the science of medicine and the inexplicable miracles of life than a nationally recognized radiation oncologist who had a near-fatal diagnosis of bone marrow cancer? A thankful patient returned to health, Jeffrey D. Forman, MD is an inspiration to many today. An academician, a mentor, a community leader, a physician on a life-changing mission, Jeff now continues his work as the first Medical Director of the Jewish Hospice and Chaplaincy Network.

From Israel with Love

Talk about her credentials! Nina Yahalomi Klevitsky, 32, couldn’t be better prepared for the road ahead as Detroit’s new emissary (shlicha) from Israel. Easily she could have settled into any one of her career paths and stayed: a high school English teacher; a medic and captain in the IDF reserves; Director of the National Child at Risk program in Tel Aviv; Co-Founder of MICS (Media in Conflicts Seminar) for journalists abroad; a leader of the Israeli Scouts Friendship Caravan. Following her heart to a future in service to Israel, she’s taken the next step - moving here and joining the family of Federation.
