A Message from alumnus Shlomo Gensler:
Unfortunately my best friend Shua Polonsky suddenly became critically ill and after a three week difficult battle with a virus that attacked his heart. He ultimately passed away this past Thursday night and returned to his maker. This in itself is incredibly hard, but to add to it, he was 31 years old and is survived by 2 cute little girls and a pregnant wife. He had just completed a doctorate in clinical psychology and he was about to start his first job. As you can imagine most people don't think it will happen to them especially when they are that young. His family can use your outpouring of support to make sure that his young daughters and unborn child are taken of. Please forward this to anyone that you may know who can be of assistance! A Charidy fund that has been set up for his family at https://www.charidy.com/shuastrong.
May your help be meritorious for you and your family!
