On the 15th November 2016, I will be joining Madswimmer and an Israeli team to swim across the widest portion of the Dead Sea, 16 km, from Jordan to Israel. When I first heard about the swim, I didn’t think about the high salt content of the sea, the warm temperature, the viscosity of the water… all I thought about was I am Jewish, South African and I get to swim across the Dead Sea to Israel… what a privilege…

It is a privilege for me to be part of the Madswimmer initiative. I get to do what I love… swim… and I get to challenge myself… and at the same time I get to raise awareness of a place I love dearly and I also get to help children in South Africa, to fulfil l their dreams and give them hope for a better future.
