Lea spoke to many people through schools, synagogues, and countless organizations about her experiences during the Holocaust. This past year, she took her message virtually all over the world and taught about her most important topic “THE MIRACLES OF HASHEM”.

She believed that everything happens for a reason,

and we all need to have a strong Emunah (belief in Hashem).
