When Lenny Krayzelburg immigrated to the United States in 1989, he dreamed of a better future. Krayzelburg, a Ukrainian emigre who would go on to become a four-time Olympic gold medalist, found that future at the Westside Jewish Community Center. Despite his broken English and newness to the country, he said JCC members quickly took him under their wing and immediately made him feel like he had found "a second home."
