Joining the Israel National Baseball team has transformed my life. Throughout this journey, Team Israel has given me the privilege of obtaining my citizenship, forming lifelong friendships and immersing myself in Israeli culture. Most importantly, I've learned what it truly means to represent both the country of Israel and worldwide Jewish community, for which I am truly honored, humbled and grateful.

Now, my opportunity to compete on the world's biggest stage is approaching. Team Israel, the Israeli National Baseball team, is gearing up for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and will be uniting the global Jewish community through sport!

I ask you to join me! Please consider contributing to my fundraiser and share this page with your family and friends.

The Situation:
The Israeli International Olympic Committee (IOC) is working with a budget from 2018 to support the 2021 Olympians. We have been given a small allocation for our training camps and travel to the Olympics. The IOC is contributing 15%-20% of the $1 million needed to support our team. If the goal is not reached, the Israel Association of Baseball (IAB) will go into debt and players will not receive the necessary treatment for the Olympic and Professional level.

Where will your funds go?
(1) To The Jewish National Fund in support of Team Israel's Olympic journey.
(2) To build baseball fields across Israel and grow the game of baseball through investing in youth players - fields are scarce and not in the same condition as fields within the United States.

Together, we can make a difference! Your funds will make a direct impact and every dollar counts. Thank you so much in advance!
