I teach a Tanya class and was up to Kavanah. I found this series and had them listen to the first part. They loved it! I split the Kavanah into 2 times. They loved it so much, they want to finish the whole series. Thanks for the wonderful job you did. It is inspiring us to do more. Reply

Thank you This has been one of the most wonderful lessons on prayer that I have ever heard. Indeed it is revolutionary. Thank you SO much. I now want to buy a prayer book, the prayerbook that the rabbi has referred to in his talk. Reply

Rabbi Lazer Gurkow. I was so thankful to our Holy G-d for this wonderful teaching about prayers of the Jews.
I loved to see the bright face of Rabbi Lazer Gurkow. Actually the Glory of the God is seen obviously in his face, just like face of the holy prophet Moses began to shine at Mount Sinai. Reply
