Some recent letters of appreciation from
readers around the world... (Feb-Aug 2005)

Date: 21 February 2005
From: Lawrence, Kansas

I would like to thank you personally for the knowledge you have given me through your emails over the past year or so that I have received them... you have helped me to realize the beauty of Jewish study. I am a secular Jew, but it is my firm belief that we as a people have been sustained through our knowledge... the discourse itself is fascinating and is tribute to the love of life that we base our peoplehood on.

Here in Gibraltar we have two daf-hayomi shiurim every day for about 20 people. I prepare one of the shiurim with the magid shiur and I have used your amazing online material many times.

We really appreciate your time and effort in supporting our small shiur in Prestwich, Manchester. Working nine to five, it is largely due to your support that I am able to give the shiur at all !

Best regards, Dovid C.

The concept of this on-line daf yomi service is phenomenal. Great for those of us that are working, have a family and are learning the daf on the run. Yasher Koach.

Much Hatzlacha! Shmuel W.

I say "Baruch Hashem" for Kollel Iyun Hadaf, an organization that makes "Shas" accessible to all who appreciate the beauty of learning a "Blatt Gemorah".... I see for myself the tremendous Avodas Hakodesh that has been and continues to be accomplished.

Sincerely, Pinchas G.

I can't tell you how much it means to me that your kollel has answered so many of my questions. You continually came through with the answers to the tough questions and for that I am deeply grateful.

Thank you very much, Barry E.

This the first time I am learning the Daf. The point by point presentation is very helpful to me for reviewing the Daf as I have a limited learning background.

Thanks for making it possible for people like me to learn and have a good review, Jerry.

I use the Insights regularly, and even more importantly - the Hebrew charts are WONDERFUL. Keep up the wonderful work you do. I give a daily Amud Yomi shiur, and use the materials in my preparation extensively.

Your outstanding work allows me to continue my Torah study while I'm "on-the-road" as a corporate pilot. I pray that G-d rewards you in this world and in the World to Come for the great mitzvah you perform.

I send my deepest appreciation. Shalom, Jan C.

Many thanks for the clarification, which relieves my heart greatly. It took time and compassion for you to respond, and may the Lord bless you again and again for that. It is clear to me now... Does the Talmud not say, "Find thyself a teacher."? My thanks, Teacher.

KUDOS & Yasher Koach to Rabbi Eliyahu Attiah for the Hebrew Charts, they very well done & serve as a tremendous aid for reviewing & organizing the material - keep up the great work !!

Let me take a moment to thank you for enriching my Gemara study. I believe my wife and I are the only Shomer Shabbes Jews living in this city of 3 million... we do not have easy access to any seforim that we do not own, and indeed I can study only via internet sites, sifrei kodesh I happen to have, and DVDaf.

I want to give you and your Kollel a tremendous yasher co'ach for the high caliber of both clarity and quality of your materials. As a maggid shiur of daf yomi for the last three cycles , I find your materials to be extremely valuable in my preparation and chazarah of the sugyos. I also am proud to be counted as one of your financial supporters...

Thanks you for your help. I want you to know my chavrusa and I found and used "Background on the Daf" in a few maseches already and is very very useful and I am very grateful.

Thank you, Alex Ferder
