■ WORLD WIZO President Esther Mor was among the recipients of the Eshet Lapidot award given to outstanding women philanthropists who give of themselves and of their money to life improvement and life-saving projects, primarily in the field of health but also in other areas of well-being. Eshet Lapidot is the brainchild of Yehuda Meshi Zahav, the founder of ZAKA, the international search and rescue organization, which in Israel is also concerned with forensic issues.

Other recipients were Nurit Kozahinof of the Beresheet Tower Real Estate project, whose family gives generously to numerous medical projects in Israel, Dr. Osnat Levtzion-Korach, the director of the Shamir Medical Center (formerly Assaf Harofeh), who was the first director of a state hospital to deal with coronavirus patients, and actors’ agent Zohar Yakobson, who created the Tal Center for cancer patients in memory of her daughter Tal who died of cancer.
