Cindy Merrill

Cindy is a vibrant and committed member of the Orthodox Jewish community, volunteering on several committees and having hosted numerous charitable events in the Five Towns. Through her successful business, Dimples, Cindy has become a well-known pillar of the community and often uses her voice to advocate for different causes, including Sharsheret and breast cancer awareness in general. She is grateful for Sharsheret’s programming, especially the peer support and family support, and she continues to enjoy Sharsheret’s webinars. Cindy’s warm embrace and openness to share her own personal journey has inspired people to lean on her in times of challenge, ultimately giving them strength and courage. While she is always happy to help others in any capacity, Cindy’s greatest achievements are her three beautiful children and her loving marriage to Jeremy for 24 years.

Melissa Pelcovitz

Melissa is a previvor and a Sharsheret ambassador. She sits on the Long Island Advisory Committee, where she is involved in outreach and event planning. Melissa is a recruiter at a staffing agency in New York City. She thrives on connecting people to help further their careers, as well as providing people with information to assist in their health journeys. Melissa lives in Great Neck, NY with her husband and three children.

Jordanna Nadritch

Armed with the knowledge of a strong history of breast cancer on both sides of her family and losing her mom to breast cancer 15 years ago, Jordanna was empowered to take control of her own health. Through her personal experience, she understood the importance of a strong support network and felt compelled to dedicate her time to help other women facing similar challenges. As an active Sharsheret volunteer, Jordanna serves as a peer supporter, developed the Sharsheret Power Pals Pre-Mastectomy Program, co-chaired the Annual Benefit, ran with Team Sharsheret in the 2016 and 2023 New York City Half Marathons, and sits on the Board of Directors, currently as Vice President.

Jordanna, an attorney, works as a Senior Legal Editor in the Bankruptcy & Restructuring group at Thomson Reuters, previously having practiced corporate bankruptcy and restructuring law at NYC law firms for more than 12 years. Her volunteer efforts extend beyond Sharsheret to her children’s schools, Yeshivat Frisch and The Moriah School, and to East Hill Synagogue in Englewood, NJ, where she served on the Board of Directors. Jordanna is mother to Alexandra, Isabelle, and Dylan and is married to Marc, to whom she credits the ability to do all that she does.

Ben Strulowitz

Ben’s connection to Sharsheret began in 2013 as a Senior at New York University, when he joined Team Sharsheret and trained for his first and only New York City Triathlon. Contrary to what was popular opinion at the time, Ben totally did not register for that race to impress Elana Silber, the mother of his then-fiancé and now-wife. What began as a short-term commitment to a race became a long-term commitment and an appreciation for all that Sharsheret provides for families impacted by breast cancer. 

Ben is a Founding Member of the Sharsheret Young Professionals Circle, a function that coordinates social and networking events in Manhattan. As part of the Young Professionals Circle, Ben helped launch Sharsheret’s Annual Casino Night, and he has continued to play an active role with peer recruitment ever since. Ben also facilitated Sharsheret’s first ever Young Professionals Networking event, where he served as the sole panel host for a discussion covering a wide range of industries and career paths for young leaders. 

Beyond the Young Professionals Circle, Ben has played an integral role in several Sharsheret community service events and fundraising initiatives. He assembled corporate employee groups to prepare holiday care packages for Sharsheret, and he even competed in and won a corporate Movember Beard Growth Competition on behalf of Sharsheret. Ben has also been an active Sharsheret spokesperson to groups of high school students in an effort to raise awareness about health and to communicate the importance of committing to a cause and becoming a leader at a young age.

Ben is a Vice President at Neuberger Berman, an investment manager based in New York. He lives in Riverdale, New York with his wife Talia, and three children: Maxwell, Dana, and Coby. 

Dr. Mark Sultan

Dr. Mark Sultan graduated with Phi Beta Kappa and Summa Cum Laude honors from Brandeis University and with Alpha Omega honors from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He is currently a Clinical Professor of Surgery (Plastic) at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. He specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and breast and has published many chapters and articles on these subjects. For the past twenty-five years he has been listed in New York Magazine as one of the ” Best Doctors in New York ” and in the Castle Connolly Medical Guide as an “American Top Doctor.”

Daniel and Becky Wolf

Daniel and Becky Wolf met Sharsheret founder Rochelle Shoretz nearly 20 years ago and were immediately struck by her brilliance, tenacity, and compassion. Since then, they have been Sharsheret supporters and volunteers, and are part of the Sharsheret Jewel family. Daniel is an attorney, and Becky is a writer. They live in Teaneck, NJ with their three children, and enjoy learning Gemara together every Shabbat afternoon.
