Israel Leaves Surfside
By Micah Halpern
Saturday July 10, 2021
The Israeli search and rescue team that came to Surfside and helped reshape and redirect the dig to more effectively discover bodies has returned to Israel. The work at Surfside is not yet complete, but the Israeli team successfully taught the Americans how to safely and effectively search for and find bodies in the aftermath of the building collapse.
The role of the Israeli team was essential to the success of the grueling and daunting task. Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava thanked the Israeli battalion for their "unrelenting dedication" and presented them with an honorary "key to the county."
The team was divided into 2 sub teams and each sub team worked 12 hour shifts to find bodies.
As the Israeli team left Surfside they marched out in formation. People, family members, locals, clapped. It was a solemn clap, a sad clap of appreciation. The team marched and sang a Hebrew dirge, they sang “Ani Ma’amin”.
