Lou Gehrig's Disease," which affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Devorah has been given 2-4 years to live, as this disease currently has no known cure.
Jewish Kidney Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives through kidney donation. The foundation assists people suffering from various forms of kidney disease, providing services to both donor and recipient. Their goal is to make the kidney donors' experience as smooth as possible and to provide continuous support through the donation process.
Couture for a Cause is a not-for-profit Jewish organization started by philanthropists and childhood friends
Esther Silber-Berg and
Michal Weinstein in a concerted effort to bring attention to and aide various charities, both local and abroad. Together they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various charitable organizations since their premier fashion event in 2007.
