The UJA-Federation of New York and its network of not for profit organizations have supported me and my family in the times of utmost need. HIAS brought us to America where we found refuge and an opportunity for a better life. The Marks JCH, or the J, embraced us as a community and provided a safe and nurturing environment where I could thrive. The New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG) fought with us to bring my sister to the United States when she was stranded in an orphanage in Ukraine. The Hebrew Free Loan Society helped me pay for my college and graduate education to achieve the American dream.
All of this was made possible by many passionate and caring professionals and donors who never asked for anything in return. Every year UJA helps hundreds of thousands of people, like my family, in New York and around the world. Today, I am running the TCS New York City Marathon and raising money to give back to the community that helped me, and by doing so help others in need.
Please join me in reaching our fundraising goals by making a donation today and run with me in spirit!
