About Rabbi Manis Friedman: Rabbi Manis Friedman is a world-renowned author, counselor, lecturer and philosopher who uses ancient wisdom and modern wit as he captivates audiences around the world. Over 150,000 copies of his provocative yet entertaining tapes, both audio and video, have been sold, and his widely praised book, Doesn’t Anyone Blush Anymore, is in its fourth printing. Rabbi Friedman has also been featured internationally in over 200 print articles and interviewed on more than 50 television and radio talk shows. He has appeared on CNN, A&E Reviews, PBS, and BBC Worldwide, and has been the subject of articles in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Seventeen, Guideposts, Insight, Publisher’s Weekly and others.

As a psychiatrist who as practiced over 45 years, I didn’t think I could hear anything new, but turned it on, for a try. I have listened to the Rabbi’s other teachings  many times and this lecture exceeds that lofty level.  He takes the conventional cliches,  turns them upside down.”


“Rabbi Manis Friedman has a remarkable grasp on the “places” inside us that we try to ignore. His advice for living and loving is unusually sound and his gentle delivery is among the finest.

– Devorah P., Brooklyn

“Rabbi Friedman has amazing ideas on attitude, emotion, loyalty, and love. I found this class to be a real gem and one that I learned from. I loved, loved, loved how he defined loyalty and his examples were spot on.

-Chaim R., Jerusalem

Rabbi Friedman’s gentle wit and wisdom seem to come from distant and deep understandings of the human condition. His instruction is both practical and attainable. It is presented in a down to earth, contemporary and often very humorous way. It provides an understanding of responsibility and attitude towards life.

-Eric M., San Diego
