    We count so many things in life: money, possessions, real estate, other material things. We also count sobriety and recovery time. But, how do you count the immaterial things that matter?

A feast!

Life Changing Podcasts

Hard to describe but the name of this podcast prepared me for something not traditional. What it didn’t prepare me for was how I would feel after listening to the first few episodes. It feels like I found a spiritual defibrillator that has shocked me into a higher level of existence. Thank you Rabbi Iggy you are a blessing to me and my loved ones.
