Phil Chernofsky – Team Quadra – Jerusalem Marathon 2024
Message to sponsors
We are a group of residents living in or next to Quadra, a complex of 4 buildings in Mekor Haim. We are very lucky to live in Jerusalem, but our luck extends further – we live in a wonderful community of people who help each other and are very supportive and friendly. So we naturally formed a group to walk/run together.
We are doing this as part of United Hatzalah because we believe this organization is a fabulous group of people who have put themselves out there to help their fellow Israelis, Jews, Christians, Arabs and Druze, Charedim, dati leumi and chilonim all working together to make this country strong. The importance of United Hatzalah, during this time of war, cannot be underestimated.
We are doing this also to show the resilience of the Israeli people who can stage such an event, even in times of war. We will not let Hamas or Hezbollah take away our life and our spirit. We remain strong and United We Will Win!!
