World record attempt – at giving blood

Menachem Steinmetz, a 65-year-old man from Rishon Lezion, has given of himself, quite literally, by donating more than 272 units of blood to Magen David Adom, Israel’s emergency medical response service, over the course of 41 years. The world record is 314 units and Menachem plans to continue donating until he gets to 70 years old.
