LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  honoring Ariel Settenbrino upon the occasion of
his designation as recipient of the 2014 Young Leadership Award  by  the
Aleh Foundation

WHEREAS,  It  is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and pay
tribute to those young people within the great  Empire  State  who  have
made  strong  contributions  to  their communities and who serve as role
models for their peers; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative  Body  is justly proud to honor
Ariel Settenbrino upon the occasion of his designation as  recipient  of
the  2014 Young Leadership Award by the Aleh Foundation; this auspicious
occasion will be celebrated  at  the  Foundation's  30th  Annual  Awards
Dinner,  to  be held on Wednesday, May 21, 2014, at the Museum of Jewish
Heritage in New York City; and
  WHEREAS, The Aleh Foundation was established in 1984, by  a  group  of
women  wanting  to assist with the staggering needs of disabled children
in Israel; it has grown from a small hospice program  for  children,  to
become  Israel's largest provider of educational rehabilitative services
to severely disabled children,  with  a  network  of  more  than  30,000
friends throughout the United States; and
  WHEREAS, A young man with a strong work ethic, and deep compassion for
others,  Ariel  Settenbrino  is truly deserving of the Aleh Foundation's
2014 Young Leadership Award; and
  WHEREAS, Four years ago, Ariel Settenbrino made the decision  to  twin
his  Bar  Mitzvah  with that of a severely disabled child residing at an
Aleh center in Jerusalem, foregoing a large  celebration  with  friends;
and
  WHEREAS,  This esteemed young man has also devoted much of his time to
working with veterans, volunteering once a week at  the  Bronx  Veterans
Administration Hospital; and
  WHEREAS,  A  dedicated student and musician, Ariel Settenbrino is able
to find time in his busy schedule to participate in  socially  conscious
endeavors;  he  participated in the 5k Run/Walk to benefit children with
developmental disorders in Israel; in addition, he is a devoted grandson
to his disabled grandmother; and
  WHEREAS, Rare indeed is the impressive dedication shown by an individ-
ual for the benefit of others  which  Ariel  Settenbrino  has  displayed
throughout his young life; and
  WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body to commend individ-
uals  of outstanding character, who have shown initiative and commitment
toward improving community life, acting as models of  leadership  to  be
emulated by others; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Ariel Settenbrino upon the occasion of his designation as  recipi-
ent of the 2014 Young Leadership Award by the Aleh Foundation; and be it
further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Ariel Settenbrino.
