On September 5th, less than two weeks after a terrorist bomb in southern Samaria killed his sister and nearly took his life, Dvir Schnerb completed the EMS course he had been enrolled in and was certified as an EMT for Magen David Adom.

In his new role as a volunteer EMT, Dvir, 19, will honor his sister’s memory by working to save the lives of others.

The emotional ceremony was held last Tuesday, only hours after Dvir was released from the hospital. He sustained serious injuries in the bombing, which occurred 11 days earlier. His father, Rabbi Eitan Schnerb of Lod, was also injured. Dvir’s sister, Rina, was killed in the blast, which occurred when the three of them were hiking near Ein Bubin Springs in the Benyamin Region. In a cruel irony, Rina, 17, bore the brunt of the blast, partially shielding her father and brother and preventing them from being more grievously wounded.

“Today we are finishing a course which we all began for one reason — the desire to save lives,” Dvir said. “We never really think about who our patient is, what their life has been like until now, or what their life will be like after. But this week, I learned that saving lives is not only saving who our patient was, but it's also saving their future... An entire world. All of this is in our hands.

“I want to use this moment to say thank you to all of the medical professionals who saved my life. You all gave me a gift, the gift of life. I promise to use this gift to be the best I can be,” Dvir added.

“Dvir today did the impossible by completing his EMT training a mere 11 days after the terror attack,” said Eli Bin, MDA’s director-general. “We will always remember Rina. And the dear Schnerb family will always be part of the MDA family.”
