Over the years, I have watched Rabbi Tully Bryks impact the lives of Jewish students from a variety of backgrounds. You would have a hard time finding a Jewish educator more dedicated, more sincere and more talented then Rabbi Bryks in sharing the beauty of Judaism with all those fortunate enough to spend time with him. His sincerity and broad knowledge as well as his non-judgmental and open minded approach with which he shares the magic and beauty of Jewish living and Jewish meaning is a model for us to strive for!

-Rav Binny Freedman (Rosh Yeshiva of Orayta and Director of Isralight)

Through his brilliant lectures and warm personality, Rabbi Tully Bryks is single-handily responsible for transforming me from a secular public school teen to a fully observant Torah Jew. He provided me with the support and expert advice I needed to continue my growth and eventually become the head of my own Torah institution. My family and I, like the thousands of people whose lives he has touched, are forever indebted to Rabbi Bryks for his kindness and unwavering dedication to the Jewish people.

I just came back from life-changing spiritual year on an uplifting program in Israel built by Rabbi Bryks. With this website, I can bring my doubts into question and reaffirm the beliefs I formed with the Rabbi. That’s the beauty of the website–we may be on different continents, but Rabbi Bryks continues teaching me.
