Team Shaare Zedek – 2023 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon

As many of you know I have been an avid runner for about ~15 years. Since December 2019 I got more serious about my running by running two half marathons, culminating in my finishing the NYC marathon in November. In March I will be taking on my next challenge, the United Airlines half-marathon through Brooklyn, Times Square and ending in Central Park.

Once again I am running with Team Shaare Zedek. I have a strong personal connection to Shaare Zedek Medical Center. My beloved parents, Alicia and Leon Isaacson, of blessed memory received much of their end of life care during their later years at Shaare Zedek in Jerusalem. I look back fondly at the time I spent there, mostly with my mother during her final days. The doctors were so supportive, the facilities very accommodating, with three daily minyanim, food and a place for me to rest. Shaare Zedek will always have a special place in my heart.

My run will support the new Cancer Center being built now at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem
