Jordan Yaffe '17 was one of 15 national recipients of the Diller Teen Tikkum Olam Awards for 2017. The awards recognize Jewish teens exemplifying the spirit of tikkun olam, which means "repairing the world." Jordan founded Dunks for Diabetes (D4D) as a community service project for his Bar Mitzvah to raise funds for diabetes research. Since beginning the initiative, D4D tournaments have engaged more than 1,000 players and 100 volunteers over 10 tournaments and raised $29,207.
