Behind the NYT Neediest Cases Article: Overcoming Trauma Through a Supporting Community

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Last week The New York Times published a moving article about Y member and Wien House resident Yana Gilchenok. The piece, part of the newspaper’s Neediest Fund series, manages to capture Yana’s unique Russian-Jewish experience and some of the deep losses she’s had to endure. I feel privileged to be able to further share how, for nearly three decades, the Y has been there beside her, helping to keep her going despite these challenges.

Thursday, April 12, 2018

In the fourth year of the Y’s SONYC program at Columbia Secondary School, we’ve rallied our program around the theme “Better Together.” As a campus with multiple schools, we jump at the opportunity to stretch this concept to foster building-wide community.

Finding Our Story in the Passover Story

Thursday, March 22, 2018

One of the most ironic aspects of the Passover Seder is the supposedly simple command of Passover: retelling the Exodus story. The whole point of Passover, we are told, is that every single person participating, in every generation, should see themselves as if they are the ones living the Exodus from Egypt. Everyone at the Seder – the ceremonial feast held at the start of the holiday which includes readings, stories, and song – should experience that liberatory moment of a status change from slave to free person. Yet the Seder line up does not actually include the full story we’re supposed to tell.
