A personal word of praise for Moishe New Rabbi; no one, absolutely no one has helped and validated me more than you did and do in my endeavor to unite myself with my G-d. To you I forever shall remain obliged. And if not now then later, if not later then after time I shall meet you and thank you in the presence of our Everything, the One and Only, the G-D of Israel.

Shalom. Reply
