Nili Tal’s new film, “Saving Nur,” follows a Gazan girl in need of a liver and kidney transplant. In it, Tal describes the tremendous medical treatment Nur received.
Dr. Elchanan Nachum, director of the pediatric ICU at Schneider [Children’s Medical Center], didn’t go to sleep at home with his wife and children when Nur’s life was in danger.
