"Rosh Hashanah with Rabbi Avraham & Nechama Laber and friends at the Jewish Leadership Campus was a truly uplifting experience, so much love, and devotion. It was a great way to start the new year. Thank you for all the inspirational teachings and wonderful hospitality.” Lazer Mishulovin

Any need anyone could imagine was provided.... emotionally, spiritually, and physically. An air of abundance was pervasive. The Laber family's involvement added such a personal touch. Love and support were exhibited in so many ways! Dobra Spinner
