These included a presentation by Prof. Buttler, Prof. Ran. Kornowski, head of the Interventional Cardiology Institute and Dr. Yaron Shapira, head of the Echocardiography Unit and Valvular Clinic.

In the aftermath of the Israel-Lebanon War in August 2006, a star-studded group of 550 supporters of American Friends of Rabin Medical Center (AFRMC) arrived at Cipriani on 42nd Street on November 5, 2006 to help Israel during difficult times.
