David Nesenoff’s new book “I Never Met The Rebbe Many Times” is getting praise and attention as he begins his world speaking tour. Nesenoff’s fame from outing the anti-Semite Helen Thomas from the White House led him to speak at over 700 Chabad Houses in the world. He has told thousands of audience members of his personal Chabad experiences and the stories he gathered first-hand from Shluchim. Now, he has written them down for all to read and enjoy.
Rabbi Efraim Mintz, Executive Director of the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute, said, “I applaud David Nesenoff’s delightfully disarming peek into the lives of individual Chabad emissaries. His journey weaves between hilarity and poignancy, and is as compelling as it is uplifting.”
Before attending the Kinus HaShluchim, Nesenoff spoke at the Village Chabad in Stony Brook, Long Island. “You could hear a pin drop; the Shabbaton audience was mesmerized and moved,” Rabbi Chaim Grossbaum observed. “David expertly explained the Rebbe’s understanding and response to anti-Semitism. He was able to move our community of all ages to tears and laughter during these very difficult times. He is a seasoned and captivating speaker who brilliantly motivates his listeners to take on more Yiddishkeit.”
Larry Kagan, an audience member attending the Stony Brook dinner, said, “David did an unbelievably amazing presentation; he was hysterical and riveting; he was born to do this job!”
The book with the most curious title, “I Never Met the Rebbe Many Times”, transports the reader on Nesenoff’s global travels. The chapters are filled with incredible Rebbe and Shluchim stories from all over the world including Chabad Houses and campuses in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, South Africa, India, Morocco and Israel.
Mrs. Rishe Deitsch, Editor-in-Chief of the N’shei Chabad Newsletter said, “David Nesenoff’s new book is for people like you and me whose hunger for well-written stories about the Rebbe is insatiable. I laughed in delight and was moved to tears.”
The New York Times best selling author of “Rebbe,” Joseph Telushkin, said Nesenoff’s new book is “Humorous and poignant!”
Rabbi Mendel Kalmanson, author of “Positivity Bias,” wrote, “Nesenoff shares an inspiring account of a lifelong journey to discover the Divine providence… It serves as a wonderful template for seeking out the Divine within every event and encounter.”
Chabad’s Long Island regional director, Rabbi Tuvia Teldon, said of Nesenoff’s new book, “Sit back and enjoy the world tour!”
Nesenoff’s book and his speaking presentations address the most recent anit-Semitic tragedies and what one can do in response. “Ultimately, the pages are filled with what the Rebbe considers our greatest challenge,” David Nesenoff said. “How we can approach every action, mitzvah and circumstance with simcha, joy.”
Nesenoff’s international speaking tour is getting busy, including a Yud Shevat presentation at Rabbi Moishe Denburg’s Central Boca Raton Chabad House.
