"In my opinion, it's important to circulate the book 'Samarkand' among the young generation in particular, so they will realize how much one must be dedicated to the strengthening of Torah observance."

"I was delighted by the book ' Samarkand' on the chassidic underground in Soviet Russia. The author opens up a window to the world of heroic activity and Jewish selflessness during the Soviet regime. The book describes first-hand one of the darkest periods of time for Soviet Jewry in a most captivating manner. In my opinion, a movie should be made based on this book, offering a virtual glimpse into the history of heroism."
