Tzaddik Magazine. Simply no words with enough kavod to define it... Chazak u'Baruch to the authors, editors, producers and designers. My eyes, my soul and my wife have all been inspired and strengthened from having the zechut to be able to immerse ourselves in the magazine's Torah-rich and inspiring articles together with its gorgeous design and layout. Thank you for publishing this amazing Kiddush Hashem. I can’t wait for the next issue.

A GOOD SHIDDUCH
I am an Octogenarian who has a scientific and literate background, and have read many magazines in my years. Aside from magnificent photography, clean typography, and diversely balanced and interesting topics, I am astonished by the shidduch between this type of content and its presentation.
Avigdor Yaakov ben Yosef / Tarrytown, NY
BETTER DAYS ARE COMING
Your magazine is absolutely beautiful and speaks a language I haven’t heard elsewhere. It gives me great strength and hope that, in this dark and confused generation, the light of Torah can reach so far. To me, it just means that better days are coming. Amen.
Rivka Sara Grossman / Jerusalem
THE TIME HAS COME
Finally. An idea whose time has come. Gratitude to your staff for a most pleasurable feast for the eyes and soul. Blessings for continued success.

HEALTHY JEWISH LIVING
Thank you for bringing a deeper understanding into everyday Jewishness. You have grounded more meaning into today’s Jewish thought and conversation through photography, art, and topics that describe, as you say, true healthy Jewish living for mind, body and soul.

KEDUSHA & HOLINESS
Thank you so very much for Tzaddik Magazine. It is really well produced and the journalism is of a high standard with professionalism stamped on every page. Most importantly, “kedusha” has not been compromised in the least. Keep up the good work.
Yosef Yigal Drever / Melbourne, Australia
Congratulations on the beautiful and profound new magazine you have made! The editor’s letter, which focused on the realities that surround the second time that an endeavor is undertaken hit home for me. Judaism is about maintaining a connection of closeness to G-d, even after the initial excitement threatens to wane. I was moved, as well, by the poetic piece about hope and the applications to immigrants, the lights of Chanukah, and to each of us—every day. Your magazine is a graphic, literary, and spiritual work of art. Thank you for your efforts to bring more light and hope into the world.

WORK OF ART
Tzaddik Magazine is truly a masterpiece. Poetry in motion! A metamorphosis of words & photographs all of which transform into a work of art.

TESHUVA & DEVEKUS
Tzaddik Magazine is amazing and wonderful! The material is relevant and interesting to Jews as well as those who are not Jewish. This magazine surprised me—its content is a vast range of advice and teachings from the great rabbis, presented in a beautiful and simple to understand manner. Whether newcomers or advanced students of Torah, this magazine strengthens teshuvah and devekus to Hashem.
Gilson Arruda / Campo Grande, Brasil
Your wonderful magazine came into our hands today. It is such a precious magazine and a gift of life to us. We safeguard our copy since it contains so many great writings and teachings, which we follow here in India. We first heard about Rebbe Nachman in 1960 when [former] President Khruschev sent Russian soliders here to train Indians. Some of these soldiers were from the area in the Ukraine where Rebbe Nachman lived and they taught many of us about Breslev. See how Rebbe Nachman chose us for this great blessing.

CONNECTION TO TSFAT
Every year I have the opportunity to stay one week in the Holy City of Tsfat—one of Judaism’s four holy cities. This publication, with its outstanding articles, its touching and beautiful photos, encourages me to remain connected to the spirit of Tsfat, Rebbe Nachman, and continue my personal path to Judaism.

LONGING FOR TSFAT
The stories were uplifting and educational, and the art work and photos were beyond the senses! I was immersed in looking at the beautiful images of Tsfat and longed to be there once again. The magazine is truly a work of kedusha and art!

ART & BEAUTY
I am sure that thousands have told you the same thing, but of course, I must do my part. I love the use of art and beauty in the service of such a pure cause. The magazine has such an uplifting energy. I feel like you are using this really powerful medium to energize the whole and wholeness of the Jewish people.
Meir Rotbard / Monsey, New York
This is the most superb, uplifting, ruchniousdik magazine I've ever seen. Stunning. I'm going to frame some of the photos. It is a work of art and inspiration. May you go from strength to strength in the holy endeavor of spreading forth the wellsprings of chassidus.
Michelle Miller / Denver, Colorado
Your magazine was so inspiring to me over Rosh Hashanah. As I have a young child, it was nearly impossible for me to spend time in shul. Being able to read some of your articles while the rest of my family was davening, made me feel connected to Hashem. It is such a beautiful, worthwhile magazine that it belongs on the shelf with my other seforim.
Robin Yucht / Teaneck, New Jersey
The magazine is beyond time and space. I wish someone would do a Hebrew version for us in Israel. There shouldn't be a Jew left in the world that hasn't seen it.
Aharon Carmi / Tsfat, Israel
REGARDS FROM PANAMA
I just received the issue of TZADDIK magazine in the mail today. Mazal tov! I found the issue very interesting with religious teachings, letters to the editor, interviews, articles, cooking recipes, all in a beautiful cover with outstanding artistic creativity. May HaShem bless your work with success, and may your mission set forth with this publication be fully accomplished.
N. S. Bassan / Panama City, Panama
Your publication is supremely beautiful and uplifting. I read “The Fallen Sukkah of David” to my Torah partner over the telephone this morning. Thank you for helping us to understand and appreciate life’s challenges.
D. Helig / Pittsgrove, New Jersey
Thank you for your thought-provoking magazine. The articles are meaningful and useful without assuming a particular level of Jewish practice on the part of the reader. The layout and graphics are beautifully and tastefully executed and I am so glad when it shows up in my mailbox. I first learned of you when I was a grad student in Philadelphia and Simply Tsfat came to perform. They blew me away with their musicianship and their HUGE spirit.
B. Hamon / Portland, Oregon
I am a pensioner making the almost impossible journey back to my roots as I am older, but would love to come and learn from you in Tsfat. The Torah has been my life.
Miriam S. Willey / Gloucester, England
Thank you. I read TZADDIK before going to sleep and in my dream I was saying the Shema and telling others they should do it twice daily.
Deanie Lerner / Minneapolis, Minnesota
DEEPENING OUR KNOWLEDGE
I received the Succos edition of Tzaddik and found it delightful to read. In fact, I told my friend about the article on the Shema and Netilas Yadayim, and how we have to deepen our understanding and awareness of the everyday things we do as Jews. She was excited about the emphasis and wants to receive a copy of Tzaddik also. We attend Torah classes, but this message just hit the spot. It’s not "business as usual," and it’s not enough to just "do more of the same". The point of deepening our knowledge and understanding is a subtle but powerful one. In order to broaden & deepen our reservoir of Judaism, please write more such articles, incorporating the wisdom of the Zohar. We all need the illumination to guide us through these challenging days.
