We thank you so much for helping us raise funds for Yachad, an organization dedicated to including individuals with disabilities in all aspects of Jewish life. Yachad is a Hebrew word meaning TOGETHER, and this is the mission of Yachad. We have seen firsthand, from participating in Yachad events since January the difference Yachad makes in people’s lives. Yachad provides supports and services to children and adults in many ways including, weekday events, Shabbatons (weekend retreats), summer camp programs, trips to Israel and so much more. Yachad operates across the US, Canada and Israel, impacting thousands of people every year. Unlike many other programs, Yachad does not receive government funding for these programs and relies on the generosity of people like you.
We are 3 sisters ages 16, 12 and 9 years old at the time of the marathon. Nechama, 16 attends MSH in North Woodmere, NY. Nechama enjoys attending Yachad events, working with small children, and spending time with her friends from Far Rockaway, and Long Island. Toby, 12 attends Torah Academy for Girls in Far Rockaway, NY. Toby enjoys attending Yachad events, has an inquisitive mind, and is on her way to becoming a world class baker. Hannah, 9 attends Torah Academy for Girls with Toby. Hannah loves Yachad events, water activities and creating and playing with slime with her friends.
We so appreciate you joining us at any level you are comfortable with as we run to raise funds for the individuals and families whose lives are brightened by all Yachad has to offer.
