BYSC Board Member and Executive Producer at MSNBC
Moshe Arenstein, a founding Backyard Sports Cares Board member, remembers when he first got the call from Danny Bernstein about 10 years ago. “It took me about 20 seconds to realize how great this was.” While he cites Danny’s passion, vision and excitement as the original draw, he has witnessed the need and impact through his own eyes for the last decade and is excited for expansion in the future. “Team sports are an effective way to bridge the gap between communities, allowing all participants – special needs athletes, underserved youth and volunteers – to engage with peers across ability levels.”
Moshe shares that as he watches his own three children participate in organized sports, he’s pleased to help make it possible for others to access the powerful benefits. He particularly enjoys attending the special needs programming with his son Micah (also a BYSC volunteer!) and seeing the trust that parents place in the BYSC coaches and volunteers, knowing their children are safe and enjoying themselves. For many, it is an extremely rare opportunity to do so in a team sport setting. “It brings me joy,” he says.
When not “working” for BYSC, Moshe is an Executive Producer for MSNBC, specializing in live news coverage and politics and elections.
