Catholic educators, priests, donate blood in solidarity with Israel

A group of 30 Catholic educators, including priests, donated blood yesterday in Jerusalem's Magen David Adom center in a show of solidarity for the Jewish state under attack, reports the Anti-Defamation League (July 1, 2006):
Members of the group, representing schools in ten states across the U.S. and in Washington, D.C., decided to give blood after they heard the sound of Hezbollah rocket strikes while touring in the north of Israel and learned of the nation's blood shortage.
