Rabbi Jeffrey Arnowitz

I was a mother of two babies and was miserable in my marriage, living in a community where I knew next to no one. Rabbi Arnowitz saw my pain and invited me in to speak with him. As my baby slept in his stroller, I cried. He told me I was in an abusive relationship and that I owed it to myself and my children to get help. He was kind, he was caring, and made me feel like I mattered. If saving one life means saving the entire world, as is written in the Talmud, then Rabbi Arnowitz saves universes every day with his intelligent compassion and his love for the Jewish people.
