Get to know Hatzoloh Montreal

Who we are

Hatzoloh Montreal is an entirely volunteer-run emergency medical service serving the Greater Montreal Area. We are one of over 60 chapters across the globe. We are committed to being there for you in your time of need. Each of our generous volunteers undergoes over 120 hours of hands-on medical training to prepare them for duty.

Although, the organization was established by members of the Montreal Jewish community, the volunteer members respond to medical emergencies to any member of the neighbourhood, without regard to race, religion, or ethnic background of the individual in need. Many non-Jews have come to respect the professional skills of Hatzoloh volunteers and are quick to call the group when a medical emergency occurs.

This incredible organization cannot exist without the financial support of the people like you. The cost of maintaining our lifesaving medical equipment, and ensuring our volunteers have the most up to date training is a costly venture. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation and give the gift of saving a life.
