What his students say

“We have become connected to the Hebrew Alphabet through Rabbi Marcus’ clear and orderly teaching style. He explores deep concepts which can sometimes leave people with many questions, but he always calmly and articulately answers them and so our understanding strengthens. Each one of us has taken so much from the class and we truly have changed through the discussion of many ideas and insights.”
