You may have recently had the opportunity to hear from Abby Stein, a former New York Hasid who has emerged as a woman, when she recently came to Montreal to help us raise awareness about our cause.
Her visit, combined with an exceptional effort from the Forward team, volunteers, members and generous patrons, resulted in the exposure of Forward to hundreds if not thousands of people in person, and many many thousands more via the multitude of coverage we received.
Please find below a list of links to articles and radio interviews that testify to the impact of her visit. An example of a very positive result from the avalanche of publicity we received was that a local psychiatrist contacted Forward and offered his services to our members in need without a medical referral. This alone is extraordinary.
A very big thanks to Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom for being such gracious hosts, CBC Radio, Mile End Chavurah, La Presse, Canadian Jewish News, Abby, Linda, Nira, and so many more.
Here are a few links to articles and radio interviews relating to Forward and Abby’s visit:
