Sheba Global Impact: Algemeiner’s Annual “J 100” List Lauds Yoel Har-Even

December 14, 2022

Sheba Medical Center received yet another accolade last week, when Yoel Har-Even, the indefatigable head of the Sheba Global division was lauded as one of “The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2022/J 100 List” by the Algemeiner, an iconic American Jewish newspaper.

Har-Even who was positioned 11th amongst the 100 was lionized by the publication for his efforts in Ukraine. The Algemeiner wrote:
“Israeli humanitarian organizations rushed to aid Ukrainians following the February 24, 2022 Russian invasion, sending medical supplies and medical professionals to assist with the human toll of the war. Among them was Dr. Yoel Har-Even, who opened a field hospital in the western Ukrainian town of Mostyska named “Kochav Meir” (Shining Star) in honor of former Prime Minister Golda Meir, who was born in Ukraine. In an extensive interview with The Algemeiner, Har-Even observed that the presence of his team “effectively connects our past Jewish life here that goes back 1,000 years and the modern Jewish state.” Surveying the suffering around him, Har-Even declared: “There are too many stories, reminders that we have a clear moral obligation not to look away, as human beings, as medical professionals, and as Jews.”
