They say that man plans and G-d laughs. That’s how I felt last year as I geared up to run with Team SBH in the Disney Princess Half Marathon. My training was going great and I thought nothing could stop me until I sustained an injury that sidelined me for over a month. Still, I pushed on and managed to complete the race and participate in an amazing and eye-opening weekend.


As accomplished as I felt from running my first half marathon, what had the most impact on me was the time I spent listening to countless people talk about all the good that Sephardic Bikur Holim does. I thought I knew SBH but I hadn’t realized before the extent to how many different services SBH offers, and how many different ways they improve the lives of our community members. 


The clients of SBH planned and G-d laughed. They planned to have the means to feed and clothe their families, they planned to be independent as they aged, and they planned to be able to navigate the complex health care system. But that’s not what Hashem had in store for them. Thankfully, SBH was there to help in their time of need.


Suddenly a bit of pain when I ran wasn’t the biggest deal. I saw, however, that small acts of Hesed could make a huge impact on the lives of others. I signed up then and there to be a volunteer for SBH and it is a decision I haven’t regretted. 


Some of the services SBH provides for the community are:


Career development and job placement


Food pantry

Medical assistance

Mental health counseling

Senior care

Youth programming



That is why I’m asking you to help me reach my fundraising goal and to support the amazing work that Sephardic Bikur Holim does every day. Thank you!
