On July 31, 2011, Areyvut’s interns -Jordana and Rebecca- and staff -Shira- helped facilitate a Gift of Life Bone Marrow Drive in West Orange, NJ, at Congregation Ahavat Achim Bnei Jacob and David. We were just informed that someone who we entered into the bone marrow registry that day was found to be a match for a 65 year old woman! Facilitating drives for Gift of Life has always been important to us but learning that we played a role- albeit a minor one- in saving someones life is extremely powerful and made our day. You never know where your acts of kindness can go, who they can touch and what lives they can save.
