What others are saying about the Shmuz

Every time I get in my car Rabbi Shafier is there; outside my car he is in my heart and in my mind. The Shmuz has permeated my thoughts, improved and elevated them.

So many assumptions that I had, regarding Torah, wisdom, conduct and attitude, have been reshaped by the Shmuz.

Reshapedis actually a milk-toast word whenoverhauledwould be far more expressive and accurate. That is the beauty and the power of the Shmuz.

Rabbi Shafier can take an assumption that you have lived with all your life and thoroughly invert it. And all along the process you are stimulated, entertained and appreciative beyond words for the transformation.

I consider aShmuzpodentry-level hardware for any ben Torah desirous of growing and improving. Your outlook will change and I can personally attest that your behavior will follow.
