Event speakers included Rabbi Shlomo Zarchi, Rabbi Avrohom Gerlitzky, Rabbi Michoel Seligson, Rabbi Motty Lipskier, Rabbi Baruch Jacobson, Rabbi Levi Baumgarten, Rabbi Shmuel Light and Rabbi Yossi Kamman.

  1. I was around two years in the US & worked locally at an office trying to raise funds from locals for the planned Bais Rivkah Campus. As there was no sign building would ever start, people stopped giving & operation ended. I went into the community council desperate to take any job that would pay my bills & food. Rabbi Flint happened to hear me & asked if I was able to tackle a more professional job than babysitting…. It turned out to be a Manhattan job in an industry that I worked in overseas. I was accepted & for the first time since coming to the US made enough to live on rather than the CH wages I received until then which were barely enough to exist on & made me feel like a 2nd rate person with zero abilities.
