IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: LENNY KRAYZELBURG

Rate this Entry

Missed a day yesterday as I've been traveling.



One of the most successful athletes in modern US Olympic history is Lenny Krayzelburg, the four-time gold medal winning swimmer. Krayzelburg is certainly one of the best backstrokers in the history of the sport having simultaneously held the world record in all six backstroke events.



I had the opportunity to meet Lenny Krayzelburg shortly after he won several medals at the 2000 Olympics in Sidney. That's because he is one of the most successful refugees to have been resettled by HIAS, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society. HIAS, incidentally, helped my own family resettle 100 years ago and my wife's family when they came to the US as refugees after World War II. I've been serving on HIAS' national board for the last ten years. HIAS, incidentally, settles refugees of all religious faiths from regions around the world. They're also the country's oldest refugee resettlement organization having operated continuously since 1881.
