There were a number of positive “thank you’s” and comments rendered as we were preparing to leave, and some later via email.
L. said: The Rabbi was great! He really had a great message about humanity. Many people would benefit from hearing his perspective on the prison system. His is fortunate to have found his calling… Thanks for all of your efforts organizing this program.
A. called to say that “she loved listening to the Rabbi talk … amazing how he is living his passion”.
R. came up to me and started to cry, saying how deeply this program touched her since she had lost two loved ones close in time … that she really felt a connection – and thought his (Rabbi’s) presence in my life at that time was like that of an angel”.
