(S2E6) I speak with Rabbi Zalman Grossbaum and Jonah Zimilies from LifeTown. LifeTown is a 53,000 sq foot facility built to service the special needs community in Livingston, New Jersey. New Jersey has the highest rate of children with autism in the United States, and the largest population of children on the spectrum live in Essex County. LifeTown is designed to provide desperately needed services for those in the special needs community, as well as help bridge the gaps with the general public. This is an absolutely amazing facility and what’s happening in Livingston, New Jersey needs to happen all over this country.
