Welcome to the team Shachar

Shachar Weissberg

Chai Lifeline/Chaiyanu has been part of my life for almost 25 years! I started off as a camper when I was twelve years old and when I got older I became a staff member and volunteered for them ever since. Unfortunately, I became a quadriplegic in 2005 and my life changed but my Chai Lifeline family was there for me and my life would not have been the same without them. They continue to help me in so many ways and I try to help them in any way I could.

Although I cannot run in the marathon, but my friend Yosef from Yeshivat Mayanot will be running for me to help me raise money so that Chaiyenu could continue doing their wonderful work that they do.

Chaiyanu is a wonderful organization that provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 4,500 children and their families every year. Chaiyanu´s programs and activities change their lives forever, returning joy and hope and enabling them to live full and happy lives despite the presence of illness. Its most famous program is Camp Simcha and its sister program, the Hope Tour. Every year these two trips offer 450 kids a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. To get a better idea of what Chaiyanu does for families, please watch the videos below. We know they will touch your heart the way they touched ours.

Thank you!
