"Bernie and I found the classes thought provoking, intelligent, very interesting, and enjoyable. We especially liked the way the Rabbi responded to questions and statements from the students. He always shows respect and thoughtfulness in his responses. He carries a wealth of knowledge - that is obvious; however, he always came across as interested in what we had to say. A wonderful teacher ... we will come back for more classes. Thank you so much for all we have begun to learn at Chabad." - Bernie & Arlene Farrow
