Recently, Rafi delivered hundreds of books to the Jacob Gitlin Library in South Africa. Below is the letter they wrote him as a thank you.

Dearest Rafi

 

I miss you-you have a soul like no other I have met. I was helping a young teacher find suitable reads for the weekly parsha to do with a young group at Ohr Samayeach. We have a treasure trove of books thanks to you. The choice for Purim is superb! Each time I see our collection and our latest books I am filled with such joy. What a privilege you have given us to be able to offer children’s book of such a high standard and with a golden Jewish thread.

With warmest wishes,
Shabbat Shalom

Jacqui Rodgers
Head Librarian
