Joshua Hecht grew up in Great Neck and is a senior at Yeshiva University’s Sy Syms School of Business. Josh first got involved with Shaare Zedek when he was in Israel for the year at Yeshivat Torah Shraga. The Hospital was within walking distance of the yeshiva and he and his friends would frequently visit patients. During these visits, Josh was able to see the amazing work of Shaare Zedek. The summer that he returned to New York he was asked to join the College Bowl-a-thon as a team captain. The following year Josh joined our Board, and this past year he became a co-chair. Josh’s warm personality and persistence in contacting sponsors played a huge role in making our fundraising efforts such a success. We wish Josh a mazal tov on his recent engagement to Rebecca Finkelstein.
