United Hatzalah is the largest independent, non-profit fully volunteer Emergency Medical Service organization that dispenses the fastest and free emergency medical first response throughout Israel with the help of their amazing iconic ambucycles. The average response time is less than 3 minutes across the country and 90 seconds in metropolitan areas. There are over 6,000 volunteers around the country that help provide service to the country 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Over 1000 people attended this lavish event while Jay Leno personally contributed $150,000 as well as entertained the audience with a speech filled with many of his funny Jewish Jokes.

I chatted briefly with Jay Leno, who is a tremendous supporter of many Jewish and Israeli charities about his marvelous car collection. Maybe next time Jay Leno will also donate one of his cars
