  1. True Blue! The best of the best! We thank you for your dedication and service. I think, I speak for all of the Orthdox Jewish Community.

    Enjoy your retirement!

  2. MY daughter was in a car accident a few months back, her car was totaled and she was very shaken. He was so nice to her, when I arrived on the scene it was such a comfort that my daughter was treated so kindly and professionally. Thank you!
