Help send Israel to the World Cup
"As a recent participant of Taglit-Birthright (2012) and the Maccabi Games (2009), I had the opportunity to learn the importance of practicing the Jewish faith. One of the most unusual things that happened to me was on a narrow street in Jerusalem, where an Israeli came up to us and said 'Welcome home.' Israel is such a small country and I'm excited to return to develop the sport, train, as well as to compete against the traditional lacrosse countries in our first World Cup. I am also excited to meet my teammates, learn more Hebrew, and to be a founding part of the Israel Lacrosse organization."
"The most memorable moment in my lacrosse career to date is winning the 2009 NCAA DIII National Championship in overtime! We played our rivals, Salisbury University, and rallied late to force overtime. I missed my own graduation ceremony at Franklin & Marshall that weekend (with Colin Powell speaking); but the parents, coaches, and the president of F&M made the seniors our own graduation ceremony. What is even better is that Lauren Paul Norris was my coach and now I get to play for her again internationally!"
I am playing in honor of the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty, which is a New York City council that has a long history of helping immigrants and Jews suffering from poverty. Currently they provide many services including: affordable housing, kosher meal programs, immigrant services, and crisis intervention. I would like to play in memory of my great-grandparents Aaron and Fay Wagner and Tom Keitz who immigrated to the US from Poland and Denmark and who would have found these services helpful."
