"One of the major novel approaches that Rabbi Widmonte has taken is
to create a method of synthesizing the Maharal's thought and
summarizing them, utilizing summaries and graphics devices" Rabbi
"Maharal's thought to the English reading public is a great service that will provide the intelligent and interested reader a window into the thought of this great thinker." Rabbi Mosheh Lichtenstein
"Sets out very clearly the flow of the Maharal's ideas, as well as how they connect to the Maharal's broader philosophy and ideas. The unique combination of text and diagrams . . . illuminates Tiferet Yisrael in a comprehensive and excellent manner." Rabbi Warren Goldstein
"What is unique in your work is that you have succeeded in clarifying the words of the Maharal in a manner that benefits everyone." Rabbi Yehoshua Hartman
"This is a clear and lucid Hebrew edition with English translation of the Maharal of Prague's Tiferet Yisrael (the Splendor of Israel) intended for the English reading public... In addition to providing a much-needed translation Widmonte's unique approach to presenting this text enables the English reader to better appreciate the Maharal's depth of thought and the important place his work occupies within the Rabbinic corpus. Also included is a glossary, a general index, name index, and an index of sources. Recommended." David B Levy, AJL Reviews
