I highly recommend her as a practical, down-to-earth, motivational speaker - her workshop was the talk of the Embassy.”

“As a small business owner I didn’t want to limit the success of my business by my lack of financial expertise. Rifka continuously helps me set goals, make responsible decisions and gives me tools to understand the financial aspects of running a growing business.”

“Since 2009, Rifka Lebowitz has educated and guided Nefesh B’Nefesh olim at several post Aliyah information seminars. Learning to navigate the new systems of banking, bills, and finance is very overwhelming – yet all are aspects vital to one’s financial success in a new country. Rivka time and time again successfully provided translations, handouts, and practical tools, restoring for new olim in particular, a feeling of being in control and independence.”
Miriam Naiman, Post Aliyah Advisor at Nefesh B’Nefesh
