Rabbi Dovid Slavin has blessed a brand new type of air ambulance in Sydney…making a shehechiyonu over the gleaming red fuselage.

The aircraft has been named after fabled air aviatrix Nancy Bird-Walton sharing the name with A380 in the Qantas fleet. Her daughter Tweed and grand-daughter Nancy attended the ceremony.

Rabbi Slavin told J-Wire: “This is the first time I have blessed an air ambulance. Given that this wonderful service brings hope to those who make use of its capabilities, I felt the shehecheyonu was appropriate.”

    Would have been more meaningful if Rabbi Slavin had also snipped one inch off the tailpipe!!
