My senior year at NYU I participated in a program that matched college students with local Holocaust survivors.

S. and I became fast friends during our weekly visits. That February my paternal grandfather, my only remaining grandparent, passed away.

Having S. in my life is like having a grandpa again. Before I embarked on a trip to Israel this month to rediscover my Jewish roots-which he always encouraged me to do-I made sure to visit him in NY.

I am proud to call S. part of my family
