Jackie Schlanger

For the sixth time in seven years (having taken a break last year), I will be running as member of Team Yachad in the Miami Marathon (and once again I expect to be the "second oldest member"). Over that period-thanks to the generosity of many of you- I raised over $25,000 and I am hoping to continue the support. This is my way of giving back to an extraordinary organization that has given so much to us and the Jewish community as a whole and to publicly demonstrate our hakaros hatov.
Yachad-the National Jewish Council for Disabilities-is part of the OU and has been a part of our lives for many years now (I think Tamar joined when she was less than 10 years old-ie it's now 20+ years) and we-especially Tamar-have benefitted from them in many, many ways. As many of you know, Tamar recently got married to Chaim Goldman, a fellow Yachad member who she met many years ago at Yachad’s Good Sports program. Besides the shabbatons that you may be familiar with, Yachad also has summer programs, day hab and other vocational programs , acts as a clearinghouse for needed information, arranges conferences for the lay and professional communities, advocates for the disabled community, and provides many other needed services. Tamar is now working at Yachad’s New York offices four days a week as a fully employed office assistant, utilizing the life and job skills she learned while attending Yachad’s day-hab program. In previous years she worked at the Yachad Gifts office, at YU's Central HS for Girls in Queens and at Carlo's and Gabby's restaurant in Flatbush. She also worked in Camp Mesorah this past summer as part of the Yachad vocational program. For over 30 years Yachad has been tirelessly raising our consciousness and advocating for the inclusion of the disabled into the community and into activities that many of us take for granted. We would not know what to do without them.
The picture is from Tamar’s wedding. The wedding itself was a vivid demonstration of Yachad’s core mission-inclusion and participation in life's daily activities in all of its forms.
