Generous Words for the Washington Heights Kehilla

This is an excerpt from a fundraising letter that I recently received.

"As a young, newly-frum and newly-married couple, we lived in Washington Heights, NY (otherwise known as the "Kehilla Kedosha".) We were extremely fortunate to be in the presence of Rav Shimon Schwab, z'l and Rav Eliyahu Glucksman, z'l. Being a part of that community taught us so much of what is a true 'kehilla kedosha'."
The letter goes on to make a pitch for an organization in a different town that is trying to replicate what the authors experienced in the Heights.

I believe this is a widespread sentiment about KAJ. I heard one man who moved elsewhere reflect how "There's nothing else like it."
