Ezras Nashim, the first frum, all-female emergency medical service (EMS) organization is expanding to Crown Heights and accepting new members.
Ezras Nashim was founded in 2011 and launched in Borough Park in 2014, with the name “Ezras Nashim,” which literally means “Help of Women,” and is also the name of the women’s section in shuls and the Beis Hamikdash.
The name was chosen to signify the group’s mission of women helping women as well as the firm belief that frum, female EMTs are not a radical innovation, but simply a new dimension of the traditional role of Jewish women as nurturers and caregivers to other women.
Since its launch in Fall 2014, Ezras Nashim has expanded to offer 24/7 care for all facets of emergency medicine in both Borough Park and Midwood. Ezras Nashim has also created a new exciting Internship program to broaden its membership eligibility.
Ezras Nashim has won respect of the EMS establishment and the trust of the women they serve, and they are ready to expand to Crown Heights.
Women are invited to attend an open house on Sunday, December 13th at the home of Mrs. Fraydie Liberow, an EMT and prominent Ezras Nashim Coordinator, located at 334 Crown Street, between New York Avenue and Nostrand Avenue. The open house will take place between the hours of 11am-3pm.
Anyone interested in becoming an EMT or volunteering for Ezras Nashim in any capacity is encouraged to attend and become part of a dream more than 40 years in the making.
