In accepting this recognition, Joshua said he derives great inspiration
from the mission of the Mid Island Y Jewish Community Center and the
service it provides to all members of the community. “My family and I
have been active members of the JCC for over twenty years. It is an
honor to support this organization which has done so much for me and for
the community, and I am humbled by the honor of the ‘Sason Gym’.
“The leadership at the Mid Island Y is always striving to stay on the
cutting edge of technology and programs offered,” said Sason. “I want to
thank all the donors who have contributed to the Gym’s success,
especially those who were not previously familiar with the cause, but
were willing to give on my behalf.”
