I am sure it will bring great benefit to all who read it, and especially in that you bring the words of the Acharonim in full, enabling them to see the actual source. I am certain that the work will bring great satisfaction to all who learn it, thereby bringing them benefit and causing great satisfaction in the Heavens above, in that every reader will be uplifted from the ideas he learns thereof.
–Rav Shmuel Kamenetsky
His Torah thoughts are not presented merely as a condensed gut vort tailored for the “on the run” reader known for its brevity and conciseness. Rather, the intent of the author is to give the reader the opportunity to actually learn the text in the original Lashon Hakodesh form and is accompanied with its English translation, as he skillfully weaves and develops the thought to its conclusion. At the end, one is left with a new insight food for thought, that if incubated could shape one’s future conduct and deepen his relationship with Hashem, his fellow Yid, and himself.
–Rav Shmuel Brazil
