TOUR TO THE WONDERFUL - (Phase I):
Superimposed on a pandemic, an election & an insurrection:
A rabbi & his wife modeled the power of giving, as they traveled the United States by RV. They've been on a quest to better understand and support the distinct needs of local communities, while meeting heroes of everyday life. The couple has returned safely.
Tour To The Wonderful
On The Road
"As we traveled the country meeting people, we kept our audio recorder on, with the hope of capturing some treasures. In each episode you will meet many of the same people we met and learn of their challenges and hear their insights. If you were visited on the tour, your name will appear in the credits, even if your voice did not make the final cut. We think you will enjoy the listen. THanks for joining us on Tour To The Wonderful" - Rabbi Jeff and Mindy Glickman
