Morris E. Hartstein, MD

Dr. Morris Hartstein is a Bellevue and Harvard-trained ophthalmic plastic surgeon. At the age of forty-one, with his wife, Elisa, and his four kids, he left Saint Louis University for a ten-month sabbatical in Israel that turned into a life-changing experience. Israel has been their home for the past seventeen years. Morris writes about his broad medical practice in Israel, including a failed suicide bomber, terror victims, kids from Gaza, refugees from Sudan, and a leader of a Hasidic dynasty. He and his family also travel frequently to Gondar, Ethiopia, to provide medical and humanitarian care to the poorest of the poor.
