MDA Prepares for Yom Kippur

The MDA first response organization is on high alert in advance of the Yom Kippur holiday. MDA representatives called Wednesday for Israelis to take caution during the day in order to avoid illness or accident.

Yom Kippur is often a high-activity day for MDA as some people become dehydrated or weak while attempting to complete the full day of fasting, while others suffer injuries while attempting to bike or rollerblade in the empty streets.
