The Magen David Adom (MDA-Red Star of David) emergency service called on the public, Tuesday, to donate blood as soon as possible, ahead of this year's early Jewish fall holiday season, which begins next week. Chief Executive Officer Eli Binn said, "During the holidays of Tishrei until after Sukkot, we are witnesses to a drastic drop in the amount of blood in the MDA Blood Services. This year, when most of the holidays are mid-week, we expect that the shortage will be worse than usual."
