Bridge Dr. Isaac Drezia
Dr. Drezia, a native of Beirut, was elected at the age of 16 as chairman of the Maccabi movement in Lebanon.
He was one of the organizers of the illegal immigration from Lebanon to Eretz Israel.
He completed his medical studies at Beirut University and was a leader of the Jewish community even when he was a young student.
As a Zionist activist, he immigrated to Israel in 1966 with his wife Frieda and their four children and settled in Givatayim.
Parallel to his practice as a physician, he quickly integrated into public activity, both nationally and locally, and was even elected Deputy Mayor of Givatayim.
Dr. Drezia was one of the founders of the Kupat Holim Meuhedet and also worked in the branch office in Givatayim.
He served as an attentive ear and a supportive organ for the entire community.
Over the years he has headed his public and professional roles as a bridge between the various segments of the population.
