Through a dynamic and targeted media campaign for The Aleph Institute's Rabbinical summer visitation program, journalists across the country were able to go inside Federal & State prisons to report on the organization's programs and services.
The press release, below, was customized to include the date and time of the Rabbinical visits, with the name and address of each prison to match media demographics in multiple cities within 37 states.

"In seven short weeks you accomplished what would have taken any other committee a good twelve months to organize. It is astounding! The organization and camaraderie that existed between your committee members impressed us enormously.
"Your initative in picking up the phone to invite Mrs. Emilie Schindler in the first place was remarkable, and your persistence really paid off. You succeeded in raising [private undisclosed$] for WIZO - the biggest fundraising success for one evening, in WIZO USA history.
"The media coverage was unprecedented! 27 minutes of Live Air Time, and 4 hits in The Miami Herald, let alone all of the Local Print Media.
"Your event really put WIZO on the map in the community, and we will continue to capitalize on the momentum."

"I hired Leah to do a relatively simple task that required some expertise in the area of digital publishing.
Once we started the project, I discovered that I had never worked with anyone who went 'above and beyond' to such a degree.
Now, that simple project has blossomed into a wonderful ongoing working relationship.
I can't believe I found such an amazing professional by pure happenstance.
If you get the chance to work with Leah, I can't imagine you would have anything but a great experience."

"Leah is a talented copywriter and a dedicated publicist. She makes the best use of all the mediums, which now includes mobile, and structures content to deliver across all platforms.
Leah developed, produced and moderated a series of live webinars for Soulboost.org. We worked together on the content and Leah directed the technological logistics, so all I had to do was show up to the webinars and give my class. I had been wanting to broadcast live to my global audience for a long time, and Leah made it happen.
