Join my Journey to the Olympics

My Story and Dream
I was 8 years old and looking for something interesting to do. My dad didn’t want me staring at screens all day long so he got me a ping pong table. He figured it’s fun, it makes you alert, keeps you active, and it’s played with friends. I wasn’t sure about it but I gave it a try. Long story short, I fell in love with the game. I got better and better until coaches started to notice me. It turns out, I have a real talent for this and can hopefully go really far with it (with your help of course). Oh yeah, there’s one more thing… I’m Jewish and that’s very important to me too. That means that I don’t play tournaments on the sabbath or holidays. In this day and age, so many people sacrifice their values just to get ahead, but I don’t think we need to. That’s why I want to be the first Jewish Orthodox Olympian for the USA!




How You Can Help
Hard work, commitment and dedication are my life. Reaching the Olympics is my goal. But this journey also comes with a huge financial burden, and that’s where I humbly invite you to join me. All donations are used for training and travel. With your help and my commitment, we can make this dream come true.
