On July 22, 2015, Mesila Lakewood hosted a seminar called “90 Minute Foundation to Financial Stability” for newlyweds, for those marrying off children and for everyone in between! Over 100 people participated, some coming from as far as Brooklyn, NY. Veteran Mesila Lakewood counselor Rabbi Boruch Yechiel Schreiber opened the evening by encouraging and strengthening the overflow crowd in their quest to achieve and maintain financial stability.
Gedalia Litke, head of Mesila Monsey, spoke about the importance and the how to’s of budgeting. The crowd formed around him at the end of the seminar to ask questions was an indication of the great need for this information.
Due to the immense interest, large number of participants and enthusiasitc response, Mesila Lakewood intends to replicate this sprogram a few times a year, increasing its reach and impact in the Lakewood community.
