“As a corporate lawyer stuck in an unhappy and unfulfilling environment, I felt that my creative soul was dying. David believed in me and gave me my first break. And my second. And my third. And then a funny thing happened—I started believing in myself, too. And soon enough NYR became my second home. With the help and support of NYR, I’ve extricated myself from my past and rediscovered my love for Yiddish—all while building toward a very fulfilling future as an actor and writer.” – Eli Rosen
