In Memory of Shane Yurman
Founder of the well-known Shane Yurman and Co. accounting firm, Shane had the unique opportunity to assist dozens of needy individuals, organizations and institutions by donating his skills, time and advice. Shane was a dear friend and advocate of BINA, actively partnering in their work by helping with their accounting needs and supporting their work. To continue this partnership, BINA and the Yurman family have created Shane’s Legacy @ BINA to commemorate the life of this man who embodied selfless giving to help others.
A Personal Letter
As you know, my dear husband Shane z”l was involved in many worthy causes for the klal and devoted much of his time both personally and professionally to yeshivos and organizations.
However, one organization, BINA Stroke and Brain Injury Assistance, was especially dear to his heart. We are therefore very proud to have chosen BINA to initiate a fund in Shane’s memory which will be named Shane’s Legacy at BINA.
After Shane z”l suffered a stroke several years ago, he was significantly impaired in his physical abilities but was determined to regain the use of his arm and leg to the fullest possible extent. We were so fortunate when we learned of this wonderful and unique organization, which provided us with invaluable referrals and guidance from the start and stayed with us every step of the way throughout Shane’s heroic road to recovery.
The fund will benefit others who are experiencing a similar struggle in the aftermath of a stroke or traumatic brain injury. Brain injuries from a car accident, fall, stroke, brain tumor, aneurysm or other cause can affect both physical and cognitive abilities, impacting the lives of every member of the family from one minute to the next.
BINA is the only Jewish organization providing guidance and assistance, including rehabilitation referrals, case management and crisis intervention, to thousands of brain injury survivors of all ages throughout the United States, Canada, Israel and Europe.
Your generous partnership in “Shane’s Legacy at BINA” will be most meaningful to our family while supporting a very worthy cause with which Shane z”l had a deep and personal connection.
Thank you and warmest regards.
