During Chanukah we recite, “A great miracle occurred at this time.”…writes Michael Kuttner.

Israel today is living proof that miracles indeed still occur in our time. Here are some further examples of how the light shines forth from Zion.

 

HARNESSING THE POWER OF THE SUN

 

A new solar power plant with nearly five times more capacity than Israel’s current largest solar array will be built in the north of the country with construction expected to begin as early as the first half of next year.

With a capacity of 250 megawatts, the new photovoltaic plant would provide 2% of Israel’s current electricity output. The plan also includes a 70-megawatt solar plant that will be located in a different part of northern Israel and a 450-megawatt natural gas-fired power plant in the center of the country.

 

TECHNOLOGIES SAVING LIVES

 When disasters strike, the first few hours of searching for and rescuing victims are critical. And when it comes to the thin line between life and death, using the most cutting edge technology can be what makes the difference. Israel has long been at the forefront of this technology and its responders are among the first to hit the ground when disasters occur.

Israeli aid workers have a variety of resourceful solutions at hand — from sensors that work like X-ray vision, to high-tech aircraft, and even robots to quickly locate victims trapped under rubble. At the same time, Israel’s advanced first-aid techniques, like high-tech bandages and blood freezing, help workers treat victims as efficiently as possible.
