We were privileged to have Moe for a Shabbaton last year. His passion and dedication to Judaism – and specifically entrepreneurship and empowering the next generation – was inspiring and incredibly enjoyable. My community was talking about it for months afterward. You won't regret bringing Moe to your Shul or community!

Limmud FSU conference gathers Jews from the former Soviet Union, ranging from outright atheists to "black hat" Orthodox, and finding a way to penetrate this crowd is not an easy task. Moe Mernick, with his revealing personal story and incredible presentation skills, managed to not only connect to many in the audience and their emotional and often physical struggles, but to engage and uplift everyone to see an incredible potential we have in our lives. Moe was able to masterfully relate to both teens and adults alike. It will be a privilege to have him present at Limmud conferences in the future!

I had the pleasure of watching Moe in action over a recent Shabbaton, both in formal and informal settings. It was a Shabbaton for over 800 people who were all form the Former Soviet Union. I have been working with teens for over a decade, and I was blown away how quickly Moe was able to build rapport with the high school participants. His classes were a brilliant blend of personal stories, real life lessons, and questions that challenged the teens to think deeply. Quite a few teens bought his book at the end of the weekend, as well as told me how much they were impacted by him.

We had Moe Mernick for two Shabbatons. His honest story is something everyone can relate to. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and stirred up feelings of hope and inspiration in everyone who heard him speak. I definitely recommend!

Moe Mernick is a relatable, engaging and wonderfully inspiring speaker. While his journey is unique, his message of open self-reflection, deep personal discovery and self-acceptance is universal. He brings with him many breaths of fresh air!
Dr. Heather Grossman
Director of the American Institute for Stuttering
Moshe's speech to Beth Tfiloh high school was eye opening, engaging and inspiring. He has a unique ability to speak to teens in language they can relate to and with messages that are relevant to their lives. One class was privileged to have a Q&A with Moshe after his speech. The students were mesmerized by his life story and left feeling proud to be Jewish and inspired to overcome obstacles. One student commented that he now believes in G-D as a result of hearing Moshe's unwavering faith in the face of enormous challenges.
