A series highlighting Yad Sarah's branch managers.
At my core, I am a survivor. I was just 4 years old in Transnistria, the "Romanian Auschwitz." Most of my family was murdered, but I got to start life anew in Israel. From that experience, I have a deep desire to help people. This is why I am so grateful for the opportunity to give back through Yad Sarah.
I often say that Yad Sarah is in my blood. I have been running the Ramat Gan branch for almost 20 years. We work 300 days a year. Even if it is only for a few hours, we open the branch. There is no shift with less than three volunteers on duty. Their devotion to this work is contagious. Our 20 volunteers understand that we need shifts on the eve of Jewish holidays, and we do not even need to ask them to sign up. On Yom Kippur eve, we provided crutches for a patient who wanted to attend Kol Nidrei. On Rosh Hashanah eve, we lent an oxygen tank.
