For the past 25 years Ms. Rachel Azona has worked behind the scenes helping Shaare Zedek patients. Most recently, she managed the Laundry Unit within our Housekeeping Department.

Other members of the Shaare Zedek staff described working with Rachel, “She worked very hard…You could always rely on Rachel she made sure that things worked like clock-work…even when things were stressful she was always kind, considerate and understanding…”

One of our volunteers shared, “I have been volunteering in the laundry department at Shaare Zedek for years folding baby clothing for newborns. It is wonderful working with Rachel. It is so pleasant. We have all become one family and we will really miss her. I hope she enjoys her retirement and I hope she comes to visit.”

Rachel, we thank you for your years of devotion and hard work at Shaare Zedek and we wish you much good health and happiness in your retirement.
