Dairy farm at SZMC

As we prepare for Shavuot, a holiday when it is traditional to eat dairy products, we remember Dr. Moshe Wallach, the first Director General of Shaare Zedek who strongly believed in the importance of fresh milk, especially for newborns. In order to ensure that Shaare Zedek could provide patients with fresh milk, Dr. Wallach opened a dairy farm in the yard of the hospital to produce fresh milk, cheese and butter for patients.

Wishing everyone a Happy Shavuot!
