Bent, not Broken
The true story of one family’s ability to overcome a catastrophic event
By Jesse Vogel
This is the true story of one family’s ability to overcome
a catastrophic event, which would not have been possible
without the chesed and generosity of their community, Klal
Yisroel, and Hakadosh Baruch Hu. This is just one story out of
thousands of people who were helped by unimaginable great
acts of kindness and dedication of time, physical assistance,
financial assistance, and emotional support unparalleled in
other communities affected by Hurricane Sandy.
This book is the story of what my family and I went through
before, during, and in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. It
is also a testament to my community of Far Rockaway, our
families, various chesed organizations, and the individuals
that gave up so much of themselves, their time, and their
resources in their efforts to assist so many families like my
own to support us and make us all whole again.
