Rushed to Israel before last day of Tabernacles

Yaqeen’s parents brought her to the doctor at the age of 13 days after noticing she was feeding poorly and had a slow heartbeat. They were stunned to learn that she has critical narrowing of the aorta, the main artery which distributes blood throughout the body.

Doctors at the Sheba Medical Center agreed to rush her to Israel, and Yakeen arrived safely in an ICU ambulance just before the start of the last, great day of the Feast of Tabernacles.

She’s receiving life-sustaining medication and resting comfortably as doctors study her heart in preparation for surgery.
