FRIENDS during Kiddush. January 31 – February 6, 2014 TO THE YIEB COMMUNITY: We wanted to take this opportunity to thank the entire Young Israel of East Brunswick Community for your unbelievable compassion, kindness and support during this incredibly difficult time. Over the past few weeks, and months, we have been truly overwhelmed with the tremendous generosity of so many people in our wonderful community who have helped us with child care, meals, daily errands, phone calls, prayers, and warm thoughts. We are so grateful that we chose to make our home in East Brunswick. This community is truly a one of a kind place with the most sincere, caring, and giving people we have ever met. We are truly blessed to be a part of this amazing community and are honored to have all of you as our friends and neighbors. We will always remember, and treasure, the kindness, caring, and extraordinary compassion bestowed on us by this community. May we all celebrate only happy occasions together in the future. Sincerely, Shira & Joseph Shmulewitz IN MEMORY OF DANA ZOEY SHMULEWITZ Dana Zoey (Ora Adira) came into our lives on January 12, 2014. Unfortunately, Dana faced an uphill battle from the start, because of her prematurity, and succumbed to those challenges on January 14, 2014. In the course of Dana’s short life, we were touched by incredible kindness, and caring, from people all around us. Quite a few of those people were on the teams that were caring for our family at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Whether on the medical, social, or maintenance services teams, all of the staff treated us with incredible compassion. Not only was everyone committed to providing top-notch medical care, but we felt like everyone who cared for us was sincerely interested in the well-being of all of our family members. The Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment team not only took the time to fully assess the scope of Dana’s health concerns, but also answered every one of our (many) questions. We felt so supported as we faced the anticipated “rocky beginning” that the team expected for Dana. We are so grateful for this. The team in the Special Delivery Unit worked tirelessly to help mitigate the impact on her health, when Dana came unexpectedly early, while also working to take care of our health so that we could get down to the NICU as soon as possible. Those extra moments that we were able to spend with Dana are priceless to us. Finally, we were deeply moved by the NICU team. From the moment that Dana entered the world, the NICU team fought non-stop to help her overcome all of the challenges that she faced. What moved us so deeply though, was that throughout this fight, the team treated Dana with incredible dignity and gentleness. We felt so reassured, knowing that the team was fighting for Dana, just was we would. While we are devastated to have lost our little girl, we are so grateful to the people at CHOP for the incredible compassion that we’ve been shown over the past few months. We hope that Dana continues to inspire compassion and generosity from us, and the people around us. We are so proud of Dana for the incredible legacy that she was able to leave in just two days of life. We've received so much kindness from several organizations in the course of our journey with Dana. We've selected CHOP for donations, in her honor, to help ensure that the compassion, and superior medical care, that we were shown continues, and expands, in Dana's memory. The link to Dana's CHOP tribute page follows: http://giving.chop.edu/goto/Dana_Zoey ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In case you are not familiar, Camp HASC is a special needs camp, where over 350 campers, children and adults, with various kinds of physical and mental disabilities spend their summer. That is why, this February, I will IY"H be running in the Ft. Lauderdale half marathon with Team HASC. Please read through the little blurb on my page, and watch the two embedded videos. Do not just take my word about the absolute magic that Camp HASC has in its gates, watch these videos and see it for yourself. Camp HASC needs your help to be able to give people with disabilities a place to be able to call their summer home. Without your help, the magic cannot be sustained. Please consider sponsoring me as I raise money to help make a life a little better for these incredibly special and unique individuals. I thank you in advance for helping me and the place I now call my summer home. The Campers are very appreciative for it, as are the thousands of holy Neshamot that will IY"H work there in the future.
