You deserve plaudits and roses for all you do for us, the online students of Rabbi Tatz. We’ve been listening to the Rov and watching him for how many years? Five? And the while you have been at the helm performing yeoman’s work unsung. There are not adequate words, in English anyway, to thank you for the Torah you bring into our lives. Had it not been for you, we wouldn’t be learning from the great Rabbi Tatz — learning which is a tremendous privilege and zechus. You have helped us grow through the Rov’s words, thoughts, insights, and depth of knowledge he shares; we owe you for all that.

“I’m as impressed with Rabbi Tatz’s dedication as I am with his erudition and fascinating insights.

“I just want to let you know that I absolutely love both classes Rabbi Dr Tatz teaches, especially the essence of spirituality he gives me, and the best education I have really had in all my years studying and learning!  He is truly an inspiration to me and credibly brilliant and extremely dedicated to learning and teaching.

Rabbi Tatz’s shuirim somehow ‘zooms’ into personal dilemma’s which has given me the clarity/wisdom to make choices..”

The program is excellent. Rabbi Dr. Akiva Tatz holds the attention of the listener to the point that one sits at the edge of the seat in anticipation- waiting for the questions he poses and the subsequent answers. In two words : Awe Inspiring.”

I can get a basic shiur anywhere or learn basic things on my own. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the deeper depth approach Rabbi Tatz comes from. It’s just so enjoyable.
