Mazal tov to Yali Derman (CJHS ’09) for being honored as one of Chicago’s Double Chai in the Chi! http://www.oychicago.com/36under36/bio36-2020.aspx?id=29577&cid=20373
Yali serves as a pediatric oncology nurse practitioner at Lurie Children’s Hospital, the same hospital that took care of her when she was a cancer patient. Yali is also an artist who created her own line of handbags under the label "Yali's Carry On Collection," a philanthropic handbag company. The proceeds have benefited the Make-A-Wish Foundation and have funded a play space at Lurie's Children's Hospital.
This spring, we were fortunate to host Yali at a virtual Friday tefillah, where Yali offered beautiful words of Torah about Parashat Tazria-Metzora. Click here to see her dvar Torah: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-sMBwrleJY
