"Rabbi Hammer is a brilliant young Torah scholar, lecturer, author and teacher of Torah. His skills and knowledge have already gained for him an international reputation."

Rabbi Berel Wein

"Rabbi Hammer's efforts are true acts of kindness on behalf of all the Jewish people. His encouragement to young IDF troops displays G-d's hand here on earth. He commented that he recently told the troops lined on the Gaza border that they are not just protecting Israelis but Jews everywhere. With this message and the Torah he spreads all over the world, he is a speaker and teacher that should not be missed."

Dan Birk President, BCMH Seattle WA

"...your words demonstrate untapped dimensions that our congregants never experienced before..."

Rabbi Ilan Feldman, Beth Jacob Atlanta Georgia

"His blend of humor, scholarship and dynamism catered perfectly to our Congregation and enabled him to be heard by the broad spectrum of both observant and less observant people we have living in Hale."

Rabbi Joel Portnoy Hale Hebrew Congregation, UK

"Thanks for all you did for our community. Your visit here was a great success and as you know we are very keen to bring you back next year!"

David Samuels, Chairman Arthurs Road Synagogue Capetown South Africa

"He was by far the best speaker we have had in a long while and I highly recommend him to everyone."

Rabbi Jeremy Barras, Temple Beth El Fort Myers FL

"Some speakers have good scholarship, but poor presentation skills. Others present well without depth. Rabbi Hammer, has a unique combination depth, vision and the ability to captivate; participants left his lectures, both engaged and inspired."

Rabbi Andrew Rosenblatt, Shaarey Tzedek Vancouver BC
