Dear Family and Friends,
I would like to tell you about a special event taking place on February 16th that I hope to partake in to benefit the ATIME organization, that I hope you will join me in supporting.
ATIME is an organization that assists childless Jewish couples yearning for children with logistical guidance, emotional support, and financial aid as they navigate the world of fertility treatment in the hopes of having and raising children. They focus on, supporting couples with day-by-day medical guidance, 24/7 Halachic direction, insurance advocacy, essential therapy (individual, marriage, pregnancy-loss, etc.) and more.
On February 16th, ATIME is hosting their annual Shas-a-thon. The Shas-a-thon is like a Talmudic marathon where instead of running, swimming, or cycling, participants cycle through the entirety of the Talmud, as a group, under one roof, and in one day. I hope once again to be 1 of the approximately 290 participants in this fantastic endeavor to raise funds and awareness for this important cause. I can attest to the incredible nature of this wondrous event having attended the past two years. In addition to the great sense of accomplishment one feels, the event is attended by dozens of aid recipients who describe what this organization has done for them. Some have already experienced happy endings, others are still waiting for theirs, but all are appreciative of the support and assistance they have received, and it is a uniquely emotional experience.
So much of our personal and communal lives revolve around children and family and the joy that they bring. For those that lack this joy, the pain and loneliness can be heartbreaking, if not worse. I hope you will consider helping me help those desperately trying to accomplish their goal of having children of their own, and thereby fill that void in their lives.
