Water Safety on the Kinneret

As the water level of the Kinneret (the Sea of Galilee) continues to drop over the years, it is increasingly risky place to swim The shape of the lake makes it get deep really fast and extremely hard to return to the shore.There were 97 potential drownings at the Kinneret in 2018 where Hatzalah medics rushed to the scene on their lifesaving boat. I edited this video for United Hatzalah of Israel and as a mother, I got very emotional while handling this story.

Please share this video to remind everyone how important water safety is all year long.

Sanaa Mahameed, one of 330 Muslim volunteers of United Hatzalah

I usually don’t get to share the videos that I make with with United Hatzalah of Israel because most of them are private for donors, but from time to time I get to make an important, public video such as this one, where stories like Sanaa’s are not regularly shared in the mainstream media.

Sanaa Mahameed is one of 330 Muslim volunteers of United Hatzalah who save lives daily all over Israel. I hope she inspires you with her enthusiasm and dreams, as much as she inspired me through the making this clip. Even though we haven’t yet met personally, kol ha kavod סנאא מחאמיד for all your work and letting us share your story.


And a special thanks to Stand With Us for sharing the video on their Facebook page and getting over 32,000 views.
