Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

Having your say in The Link

Featuring Wendy Shindler – photographed by David Beyda

On the importance of kindness:

Be kind to everyone. Say hello to all and greet everyone with a smile! It can help make someone’s day to be kind. I love doing for others.
I don’t know how to say NO to anything! I love helping people with bikur cholim, cooking meals or just listening to them. I’m a good listener, though I talk too much.

On Parshat Vayakhel:

Moshe called upon the people to assist in the construction of the Mishkan which needed different skills like weaving, sewing and building. Deep inside every person there are hidden talents which can be tapped into. If someone has a strong will to accomplish something, he/she will achieve it.

On Israel:

Love to live there one day but have to make a stop in Florida first.

Wedding Shtick Gemach:

I have feather arches, feather jump rope, parachute and brooms all to me-samech the bride and groom.

What makes me laugh is life!:

Life is full of challenges of which I have had many but you need to have a positive outlook on everything as it’s all from Hashem.

On comforting someone with medical challenges:

I’m a nurse for 34 yrs as ER/Trauma. How to comfort? Be there as a good listener, be a good communicator and be patient with them, guide them through their questions/concerns.

Wendy Shindler is an oncology nurse navigator at Hackensack UMC. She is a citizen police officer, serves in CSS, the Mikvah and the Chevra Kadisha. She lives in Bergenfield with her husband Yossi.
