New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg dedicated the landmark Magen David Adom station in Jerusalem in memory of his father.

Bloomberg affixed a mezuzah to the doorpost of the William H. Bloomberg MDA Jerusalem Station on Sunday with the help of Sephardi Chief Rabbi Shlomo Moshe Amar. The mayor donated the lead gift for the station.

“My family was attracted to Magen David Adom because of its spirit of volunteerism and its unwavering commitment to treat all people equally regardless of race or religion,” Bloomberg said at the dedication ceremony. “Today is a great day for Magen David Adom, its supporters, my family and the people of Jerusalem.”
