DENVER dentist Dr. Arlene Stein arrived in Israel on July 11 to spend two weeks volunteering at the Trudi Birger Dental Clinic in Jerusalem, through Dental Volunteers for Israel (DVI).
DVI provides free dental care and oral health education to thousands of needy children in Jerusalem every year, regardless of race and religion.
Holocaust survivor Trudi Birger suffered greatly as a child during WW II.
At that time she vowed to help prevent the suffering of other children if she should survive.
As a successful microbiologist in Israel, she began to fulfill that vow, working with needy children.
