Episode 3 - Yehuda Blonder - A Rare Condition, a Rare Person

Welcome back to Episode 3 of Grateful Warriors! Today, we're lucky to have Yehudah Leib. Not only does Yehuda Leib live with the mantra of "Thank you Hashem" at the forefront of his life, but the TYH team is lucky to have him as part of the Chevra! The youngest of 11, Yehuda Leib was born with a rare Jewish genetic disease called familial dysautonomia, with only 350 people in the entire world who have it. Be inspired as Yehudah Leib shares with us his unique challenges and the way he talks about it. ‘Thank you Hashem,’ and ‘Hashem gave me’ are just a few of the phrases that are found in his speech, and are inspiring for us all! Yehudah shares with us why he is grateful for what He gave him, how it changes him as a person, and what keeps him going every day. His beautiful answer is sure to inspire you.

Challenges. We can't run away from them, can't escape them, and they seem to follow us wherever we go. Sometimes, these challenges turn into something more. They leave us with questions. "Why was I given this challenge, Hashem?! I can't handle this!" They leave us emotionally drained. "If it weren't for [this challenge], I would be so much happier…!" Most of all, they leave us searching. For answers, for truth, and for something inside ourselves to draw inspiration from.

In this new series brought to you by TYH Nation, and hosted by Yossi Hecht, we're on a mission: to find the most remarkable people we can, and interview them to bring you their insights, share  their remarkable stories and learn from their simcha. Our hope is that you're inspired to live your most grateful life, and to see the beauty throughout "challenges". Yes, sometimes it's HARD! But you have the power within you. You're also a #GratefulWarrior, just by being here.

Welcome to the Grateful Warriors series, where we interview "Grateful Warriors" from around the world. This series is hosted by the one and only Yossi Hecht.

Who is Yossi? Yossi Hecht is extraordinary himself, spearheading the Asher to the Yatzar movement after what others would see as devastating challenges to his health. The Asher to the Yatzar movement picked up steam, and is now a viral phenomenon.

"It's the reaction of how we respond to challenges that make all the difference." — Y.H.
