In Memory of Shoshana Yaffa (Shani) Kirschenbaum

Dedicating a scholarship through the Achotenu program is a fitting tribute to our daughter Shoshana  Yaffa Kirschenbaum (Shani).  Israel, art and nursing were her passions. She attended Stern College and Columbia University to obtain her R.N. degree. She worked at St. Francis as a surgical ICU nurse, then continued her studies to become a nurse anesthetist.  Shani worked very hard to deeply understand everything she learned.  She excelled in her chosen profession, winning a national award. She was an extremely compassionate nurse who touched many people deeply. We hope her dedication and passion will inspire others.
