I think I found a Lamed Vav There are too few platitudes to describe Rabbi Kessler. Having attended one of his Shabbat dinners, there is nothing more moving than watching a profoundly intelligent, religious man open his home to those in recovery. His compassion and gentleness towards his own children brought tears to my eyes. He takes young adults under his wing and teaches them values, Judaism, a new way to think and generosity. I consider him one of the finest human beings I have ever met. Reply

Rabbi Kessler is an angel of G-D He was recommended to me by my therapist & the first person I contacted when I decided to get clean. He is amazing and has helped me to take my sobriety seriously. He has helped me along my Jewish Journey and saved my life before I lost everything. His family is amazing and our children play together on shabbos. He saves lives, reunites families and is an amazing person who cares so much for all of us! His Friday night Shabbos dinner mean so much to me. Because of him I have made true friends who are and support each other. Thank you Rabbi! Reply

What a great place to be on Friday night It's the most wonderful Shabbos program in the country, too bad it's not done all over this country. Love and peace for the work you do Rabbi Kessler, you're the best. Reply

Death of my son I posted a comment Sept 23 2009. My son died Sept 8th 2010 . It was legal drugs that killed him. The wrong diagnosis at a Boston hospital. Than the wrong medication, that completely changed his thought process. You can see the movie he made of himself a month before he died. Go to google and see David Shlomo Eliyahu Green ( Video memorial) by Jltv>

A wonderful Program I have had the pleasure to attend Rabbi Kessler's Friday evening Shabbos program. The feeling of Joy, connection to Yiddishkeit and the wonderful hosting of the Rabbi and Fruma are truly unique Reply

Baruch Hashem! We now can admit there are problems in the Jewish community.
I know of so many who have died from drugs and alcohol. My grandson died April 18 2008. My son just got taken by Ambulance, to a hospital my son-in-law said better than medicine to help is spirituality. He is a Neurologist. Reply
