When the World Turns Over by by Noah Froelich with Yaron Kellner, Yediot Acharonot

For six years, Sheba Hospital was just my place of work. Between nine and five, I was a social worker. I came every morning, offered support to the families of children with cancer, and held their hands at the most difficult moments.

Of Cell Phones and Stem Cells

Perhaps it was the name they shared-stem cells and cell phones. Perhaps it was a sudden rush of love for his young daughter whose life had been in danger just a few short years ago. Perhaps it was his good character enabling him to retain a feeling of gratitude, even years later, combined with a strong desire to pay back.
