    Words can’t really describe how incredible Austin, Tx is. Simply put, I’d give almost anything to end up there. The people are warm, friendly, NOT RACIST (yes that’s addressed to you readers), and spiritually open. It has a funkiness and flare that is unique and no city in America can boast the same creative vibe that Austin has.

    Dear Rachel and Rabbi,
    I have only heard second hand about your amazing shlichus in Austin from my daughter racheli who spent the most incredible year with your family on shlichus.To this day, some of her descriptions of your selflessness and fairness inspire me.

Thank you.
