LIVINGSTON, NJ — Shortly before the Sept. 9 grand opening of LifeTown—a facility opening in Livingston with the hope of redefining the landscape for individuals with special needs and helping them reach their fullest potential—the LifeTown portion of Microlab Road was officially renamed “Miracle Way.”

Rabbi Zalman Grossbaum, chief executive officer of LifeTown, said mentioned the name of the street is appropriate given everything that goes on at LifeTown. He quoted the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, explaining that a miracle is when this world is impacted by extraordinary energies, which causes extraordinary things to happen.

A good deed has the same transformative impact on the world, he said, adding that so, too, each good deed, creates miracles.

“The miracle of LifeTown is all the people, from community leaders, to our families and all the teens who volunteer, their energy and mitzvot have created miracles,” he said. “We are so proud to be in this town and so thankful for the town embracing LifeTown.”

On hand to unveil the “Miracle Way” street signs last week were Livingston Mayor Al Anthony and Councilman Ed Meinhardt, who were joined by the staff of LifeTown, along with a group of volunteers and participants. Expressing his excitement for next week's grand opening celebration, Anthony said that LifeTown “is a jewel in our town."

According to LifeTown, its unique environment and volunteers are "devoted to training and supporting people with special needs." Each element of the facility was designed specifically to be the most welcoming and engaging facility for individuals with special needs.
