CHICAGO – Olga Abezgauz, Healthcare Recruiter at Med-Call Healthcare, Inc., has been named to the second annual “Double Chai in the Chi: 36 Under 36” list of young Jewish movers and shakers in Chicago.

Presented by the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago’s Young Leadership Division (YLD) and Oy!Chicago (www.oychicago.com)—an outreach website for Chicago 20- and 30-somethings—the list shines a spotlight on the faces of Chicago’s Jewish future and recognizes the amazing contributions of this generation. The young professionals featured are noted for making a difference through their work, giving back in their free time, and earning notoriety in the Jewish community and beyond.
“We were blown away by the high quality of the nominees this year,” said Stefanie Pervos Bregman, Founding Editor and Blogger-in-Chief for Oy!Chicago. “The 36 people on this year’s list are truly shaping the landscape of the Jewish community and bringing innovative ideas to Chicago.”
“This list is an excellent way to recognize the inspiring contributions of young leaders of the Chicago Jewish community and to bring awareness to their impressive accomplishments,” said Brandon Prosansky, one of last year’s winners. “Each of this year’s 36 Under 36 has demonstrated the vision and dedication to not only make the List, but, more important, to make a difference.”
Full profiles of each honoree are available on the Oy!Chicago web site.
