After Lizzie and Daniel graduated from the prestigious Harvard University, they moved to New York to pursue their dream careers. Daniel began his career as an analyst on Wall Street, and today is a Managing Director at Credit-Suisse. Lizzie’s professional life began at a large corporate law firm. She then went on to become the president of Macchu Pisco, a spirits company. Of all their many and varied achievements, Lizzie and Daniel are most proud of their work for children’s charities via City Squash. The couple has funded the Asher-Ezra Scholarship, awarded to students who excel in academia or sports. The grant covers any additional cost that their boarding school scholarship does not. Lizzie not only supports them financially – she is also a mentor to these students for the rest of their school careers. Equally impressive is the non-profit she co-founded during the pandemic, the Cura Collective, which distributed meals to frontline workers and children of immigrant families in the Bronx and Brooklyn.
While they enjoyed the opportunities and excitement that New York offered, Lizzie and Daniel planned to leave the city in search of a warm community in which to raise a family. . Ten years later, they are still here, finding the community they dreamed of in New York Hebrew. When their son Leonidas started Hebrew School three years ago, Lizzie and Daniel were apprehensive about how he would handle the transition from the homeschooling he had enjoyed up until then. Their fear was quickly put to rest. Leonidas blossomed at New York Hebrew. They are ever so grateful for all the love and support the school and staff have given him.
