Defibrillator Dedicated at Bonai Shalom

Monday night, members of Congregation Bonai Shalom dedicated an automated external defibrillator (AED) for the synagogue in memory of Al Steinberg, z”l.

President Bruce Wildman spoke of the many things that Al had done for the synagogue, including designing and building the sukkah structure and building the cabinet for the Sisterhood Gift Shop.

Marvin Gang also spoke about Al and their friendship. He remarked that Al was always interested in technology, and that this was a fitting item to remember him by. Contributions to purchase the new defibrillator, its cabinet and memorial plaque came from Al and Elaine’s Chavurah, as well as from his friends from this community and outside the community.

Asked to bless the AED, Rabbi Marc said that the “thing itself” is the blessing.

The new defibrillator “talks” to the helper and is meant to assist until help arrives. It is located in a special cabinet outside the office door, next to a phone, in the “living room” at Bonai Shalom.

  1. We have an iPhone app to locate AED locations throughout the world. It is called AED Nearby. You can view the screenshots and a video on it at http://www.firstaidcorps.org. You can download it for free from the app store.

    Also, in our efforts to verify known and unknown AED locations, we have collaborated with a volunteer organisation The Extraordinaries (www.beextra.org) to get iPhone users to locate AEDs. You can also view some of the AEDs that were located by iPhone users at http://www.firstaidcorps.org. ( the 2nd post just below the 1st one ). Remember to follow our org "First Aid Corps" in that app to get access to our missions.
