Dear Rabbi and Rebbitzen Bluming, We can not give you enough thanks for what you did for our mother/mother-in-law at Duke. It was above and beyond and it is what  makes Chabad so Special.  ... Thank you again and please keep doing what you're doing for the Jewish Community. It makes it a better place for all of us.
~ R & S  '10  


When you entered his room you brought life to him. As you know 'R' stopped eating and drinking in the hospital but after your wife brought the magnificent Shabbos dinner not only did he begin to eat but with a voracious appetite. You helped lead him down the road to good health and so we will be eternally grateful to you. Last night we brought 'R' home, AMA. That was probably the best thing we could have done for him.... The next time 'R' sees you, under better circumstance. I believe that will happen."
~ B'vracha, R's Mom, March 2010

--- have been an amazing friend and healer . You can't know how wonderful it felt to know that I had a second family in town when I was facing this life-threatening illness.  You have opened your home and your arms and your heart to me, and I am forever grateful.  No one is a better listener and a more caring soul than you, I can't thank you enough for everything you have done for me and everything you have given me.
Love always,
~ K.


Thank you! Your thoughts, prayers, phone calls, emails, visits to the hospital, many warm meals hugs and holding of hands when news arrived, are making the  difference in one of the scariest times I’ve ever experienced.
Through this experience I'm learning so many life lessons and values that will stay with me forever. The word “Mishpacha ” became a feeling. I feel that sense, and it is one of the most wonderful feelings one can experience.
Thanks again for being there for us!
~ O.


Thank you so much.   I don't think you realize just how much this help means to us. It is like a ray of sunshine during a very difficult time in our lives.  Thank you again.
~ Je..


When I spoke to you last, you gave me much strength and quiet. You are quite right that we cannot fight G‑d’s will nor try to understand it. I'll try to give my dad quiet and dignity for the time left. Thank you so much for being here for me. I'll keep in touch. 
~  L.


Didn't think you could top yesterday's delicious dinner! What delicious chicken & rice. We are stuffed!   Your wife is a wonderful cook. God bless you both!   You really made our stay more pleasant.
With Love…
~ E.


We are exhausted, but your hope gives us the energy to move forward. I’m spending most of the day in the hospital being an interpreter, an advocate for my dad’s health, being surrounded by good friends who are teaching me everything about being a "mensch", but mainly being a daughter and a friend for my dad and my mom.

You have been an unbelievable support for me.  I knew when I first met you that I had made a special connection, and you're being kept bringing me back for more!  I'm convinced that you have been sent into my life with a special mission that you know all about and you're just feeding me little bits of it as the proper time arises! At a time I was so shattered –you put the pieces of my life back together.

Dear Rabbi,
This past year has been one of amazing highs and lows for our family. Through it all YOU  has been our source of strength. G‑d has gotten us through some very rough times and as his messenger you have been a great source of comfort and guidance to our family.We have seen L… recovering not only her stability but also her commitment to and practice of Judaism. We have also seen J… and the Grandchildren gain interest and understanding of our faith.  What a wonderful blessing this has all been.
I just want to thank you for all that you have done for us, your generosity, guidance and love have meant so very much.
Have a happy, healthy and joyous New Year,
~ M
