The annual Brooklyn reception for BINA Stroke and Brain Injury Assistance, the only Jewish organization providing guidance and assistance to stroke and brain injury survivors, will take place this Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 7:15 p.m. at the Toras Emes hall at 1904 Avenue N in Brooklyn.
Rabbi Herschel Zolty, Rosh Yeshiva Mirrer Yeshiva and Rav of Bais Medrash of Flatbush, will open the program at 8:00 with Divrei Bracha, followed by a personal and gripping account by a TBI (traumatic brain injury) survivor of the many twists and turns in his journey to recovery following a devastating and life-altering brain injury.
A brain injury can happen to any person of any age at any time, and every member of the family is affected in its aftermath. BINA has assisted thousands of families in the United States, Canada, Israel and Europe dealing with the upheaval of stroke and brain injury resulting from falls, car accidents, strokes, aneurysms, brain tumors and other neurological conditions.
BINA’s comprehensive system of rehabilitation referrals, case management, crisis intervention and caregiver support services allow brain injury survivors and their families to access the best possible level of care while on the long road to recovery. Educational events presented by leading experts in the field are also conducted for both professionals and the community.
In the words of Rabbi Yaakov Bender, Rosh HaYeshiva of Yeshiva Darchei Torah, “BINA’s guidance and assistance can allow (brain injury) survivors to achieve the best possible outcome while receiving rehabilitation services. The BINA organization is doing fantastic work for people who would otherwise have nowhere to turn.” Rabbi Dr. Abraham J. Twerski attests, “To the suffering patient and family, things may appear hopeless. BINA brings back hope, and a variety of vital services to enable (them) to make an optimal adjustment to this new reality.”
With the help of concerned individuals, BINA can ensure that no need goes unmet for brain injury survivors in our community. Please join us this Sunday and make a real difference in the lives of these families.
