  • "In a mature tree, a gash  
       here and a torn branch
        there is of little or no   

    But the smallest scratch in the seed, the slightest nick in the sapling, results in an irrevocable deformity - in a flaw which the decades to come will deepen rather   
              than  erase.” 

        The Rebbe

    75-90% of visits to primary care physicians in the US & Canada are due to stress-related problems.

    "I thought Valerie's presentation was excellent, and have had good feedback from all those I have spoken to.

    It was interactive and really gave all who attended the chance to actually learn some new and practical skills
