May The Schwartz Be With You

This is my friend Bonnie Schwartz. We grew up around the corner from each other. She is the shit and I love her dearly. In this photo, taken by our friend Chris (aka Darieus), she is swimming the English Channel. Bonnie completed her run in just under thirteen and a half hours and with a torn rotator cuff at that! She is — to our knowledge — the first Jewish woman to ever successfully swim the Channel (and she also gives swimming lessons at the JCC in Manhattan and Yeshiva University). You can see more photos of her swim here.
Help Bonnie kick The Ambassador’s ass in Heeb’s Battle of the Schwartzes. Because anyone can make an ass of themselves on Israeli television, but few can swim from England to France with one functioning arm.
