    We only came back yesterday and I am already missing my new fun family! I have no words for the incredible, enthralling, inspiring, jam-packed trip with you and the "girls". There might be other trips in my future, but the first one will always be special. A once in a lifetime memory to treasure. Thank you, Leah, for leading our group on a journey that felt like I was living "alte heim" history, while somehow being accommodated so comfortably.

    Moved to spiritual tears! Leah took us to new heights with our relationship with Hashem. She prepared us with background and stories of each tzadik so our davening could take us to a deeper place. And the surprising benefit was the closeness we all felt for each other. We even had a reunion 10 days after we returned! I have a feeling we’ll be friends for life. I highly recommend going with Leah if you are yearning for a spiritual uplift. We left wanting more and more and more……

    Harmony is the best word to describe the trip to Ukraine. Sharing our stories and aspirations, looking out and praying for one another, we went from being acquaintances to friends in just a matter of hours. The overall experience exceeded my expectations in terms of the ease of the commute between villages, the comfortable lodging, and the delicious Kosher food. Leah led with efficiency and ease, guiding us with wisdom and inspiration. So, if you’re looking for more spirituality and positive vibes in your life, this short but powerful journey is for you.

    Leah’s superpower is creating long-lasting bonds between the participants as well as leading each individual to their own ah-ha moments, where they can find clarity and the courage to take the next best step. During the year after participating in her Elul retreat, I achieved every single item I had put down on my vision board. I highly recommend anything Leah does with much love and appreciation.


    After 8 months of on and off lockdowns, we all feel overwhelmed and tired. With so much hardship, we need to reconnected to our divine soul. If you are ready to take a break from the mad dash and feel it is time to nurture your soul and reignite your spirit with a whole new level of closeness to Hashem, join me on this retreat of spiritual rejuvenation and celebration of Torah in Ukraine!

    Ever since I was a child, my Jewish identity has been front and center in my life.


    Though I was born in the Soviet Union, where learning and practicing Torah was banned and being Jewish was a "handicap," I insisted on connecting in every way I could to our heritage. In the Jewish village of my grandfather, I'd pick up words in Yiddish exchanged by his friends. At nights, I would fall asleep listening to clandestine broadcasts of the Israeli radio in Russian on my father's old transistor. And when I was 12, my mother took me into a snow-covered forest, far from prying ears, and taught me everything she knew about Judaism and Israel.


    After years of wanting to learn more about Judaism, my opportunity came shortly after the fall of Communism. When the first shipment of translated siddurim and chumashim arrived in Russia, I got a set. Reading the stories of the chumash and learning the halachot in the siddur sparked a life-long love of Torah learning that I have been privileged to continue ever since.


    Yet it was my encounter with the teachings of the chassidut that has had the most profound impact on my life. The holy teaching of the Baal Shem Tov and the Baal Hatanya removed the veil that had covered my eyes and showed me a whole new dimension to this world, the divine underpinning that makes everything not what it seems to be. The writings of the Netivot Shalom charted my path towards finding my God-given life mission and helping hundreds of other women find theirs. The words of Rabbi Nachman have encouraged me to talk my heart out to Hashem, knowing with absolute certainty that He is listening.


    Learning and teaching chassidut transformed Torah learning from an intellectual pursuit into a journey of the heart and the soul. I started seeing and hearing more clearly than ever before how Hashem was speaking to me both in the outer and inner worlds. My life and experiences gained meaning and made sense, even if I do not always understand Hashem's plan.


    Connecting the teachings of the chassidut with coaching tools has helped me access deep and powerful insights for myself and my students. I became aware of feeling connected to Hashem and His world. I feel guided by Him to spread His Torah and give more women access to these empowering teachings.


    Today it is my greatest joy to share what I have learned with other spiritually-minded women like you.
