AWARD WINNING ACTOR RICHARD KIND URGES TEENS TO PURSUE THEIR DREAMS

Richard Kind

This spring LL Cool J gave an inspiring talk to the teens on our campus.

Recently, Richard Kind, award winning actor and star of such TV comedy shows as “Spin City” and “Mad about You.” and such movies as Toy Story 3 and A Serious Man, talked with a very enthusiastic group of teens from our Bukharian Teen Lounge about his career in acting.

While he cautioned that “most actors are not rich and have to do other things to supplement their income and few become stars,” he urged the teens (some of whom want to become actors) to “follow your dreams and pursue what you are passionate about.”

According to aspiring actor Michael Kalantarov, “Meeting Richard Kind was an amazing experience. I appreciated that he gave us advice on how to become an actor and that you really need to put all your strengths and efforts if you want it.”

Adds Debby Perelmuter, Vice President of Services in the Jewish Community for JCCA. “We are so grateful to Richard for taking the time to enlighten and inspire our teens.  This talk is part of a program to broaden the horizons of our teens and expose them to a wide range of fields such as finance, culture, and the arts.”

The Bukharian Teen Lounge is an after-school program that helps teens pursue personal professional and academic goals while maintaining their rich Bukharian heritage.

Jewish Child Care Association is a comprehensive child and family services agency. We work with those who need us most, including children who have been neglected or abused, immigrant Jewish families, and those building new lives. Most of our clients come to us because they struggle with poverty or family crises, and because they are working to create an independent future. JCCA helps more than 16,000 children and families every year and is consistently rated at the highest levels for the quality of our programs. In all our work, we are motivated by tikkun olam, the value within Jewish tradition that calls upon all of us to repair the world, and by our belief that every child deserves to grow up hopeful.
