ML Alumna gives Gift of Life

Kol Hakavod to Jill Greenberg, alumna of Midreshet Lindenbaum’s Maria and Joel Finkle Overseas Program (2009-’10), for giving the gift of life to now-5-year-old Bennett Vulykh!

“Jill Greenberg Karten, 25, from Queens was introduced to five-year-old recipient Bennett Vulykh, from Buffalo Grove, Ill. On May 30 of 2013, two-year-old Vulykh was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He didn’t require a transplant at first, but in late August of 2014, he had relapsed and a bone marrow transplant became essential. Vulykh’s procedure took place on December 10, 2014 at Chicago’s Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. His recovery took about two months and he has been healthy and happy ever since.” Click here to read the full article
