Tomer's Full Circle Story
“Honestly, there was a low point in my life where I couldn't feed myself. JELF provided me with the funds to pay for basic life necessities. That's why it's so important to me as a donor to give back to JELF. Without JELF I don't think I would have completed my undergraduate degree. I truly wouldn't be sitting here."
