Authors Spiegel and Stein know how to generate in listeners, young and old, their own fascination with languages and cultures that contribute to their hundreds of languages of Ma Nishtana.   Their anecdotes as avid collectors and practical ideas for applying the book to enliven the seder make for a pleasurable workshop/talk suitable for Pesach.   Many leaders have used these ideas at their own seders.

Thank you for today's wonderful program.   I have gotten only the most positive feedback.   I am certain that a lot of families will have very enjoyable and educational seders this year as a result of your program.   Anything we can do to enhance, elaborate, and endear the seder to our people (and, especially, children) is a major benefit.   Thanks again, and feel free to use us as a reference for any shuls considering bringing you in for a program.

Murray Spiegel's presentation is as energetic as his sensational new book is informative and entertaining.   Murray's stories add depth to this astonishing collection of research.   I recommend Murray Spiegel's program to any community most highly.   Hosting him has been a rare treat.

Murray Spiegel and Rickey Stein have accomplished an incredible feat in the compilation of the Four Questions in over 300 modern, ancient, and even fictional languages.   For such a seemingly scholarly piece of work, their presentation is accessible, interesting and engaging for any group of adult learners who love our tradition and love Passover.   Their passion is infectious and will spread to your seders.

Murray Spiegel's presentation at Temple Beth Or was one of the best lectures we have had in years.   The workshop was participatory, informative, and highly entertaining.   Every single person left with books and helpful hints on how we can make our seders more interesting and exciting.   It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Murray.

Many times presenters are scheduled with much hype leading up to their program and then the program falls flat.   Gentlemen, that is surely not the case with your presentation: you presented one of the most awesome programs I have ever attended!   It was informative, interesting and wonderful!   Many thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

Todah rabbah for sharing your amazing project with us.   You could tell that we were all moved.
- Rabbi Aaron Rosenberg

We loved your presentation and it generated much excited talk about seder planning talk right up through the holiday.   The scope of your work, the attention to detail and vision, along with your amazing creativity was all quite breathtaking.   Everyone who attended your presentation felt compelled -- and equipped -- to find ways to improve their own sedarim with some of your innovations, or just with the spirit of innovation that your presentation modeled.   We were greatly inspired and uplifted, thank you!

I wanted to thank you for your extremely entertaining and informative sessions with our kids today.   Not only is your research fun and creative but it serves such an important role in preserving Jewish life from so many communities that are disappearing.   We really appreciate your dedication to making Passover education relevant and exciting for today's students.

Saligman Middle School, Elkins Park, PA

Murray Spiegel blends serious topics with an engaging and humorous style of presentation that kept our children engaged for over an hour.   Not an easy feat to do.   Curiosities were stimulated.   The children were really taken with so many interesting ideas and new ways to think about the Four Questions and language.   We highly recommend him for your school.
- Renee Rudnick (Assistant Head) and Robert Sarkisian (Head)
Jewish Community Day School of Rhode Island

I was thrilled with the presentation you both gave, as it kept the kids engaged and the adults interested.   Feedback afterwards from the kids was fun to listen to, as they were still chuckling from the presentation.   You did a great job at appealing to a multi-generational crowd, which is difficult.   The buzz in the hallway from the adult attendees was positive too!   It was everything I had hoped for.

Your project and workshop is given my enthusiastic endorsement.   I'm astounded more and more as I learn about the customs and history included.   Bravissimo!

Thank you, thank you for a most delightful and engaging presentation to the students at Hevreh of Southern Berkshire.   Your interactive presentation appealed to our group of 3rd through 7th graders.   I was delighted by the numbers of students -- even the youngest -- who raised their hands to interact with your program.   Your enthusiasm also enlivened your program.   I do hope you will come back again.
