"Stuart - You should be proud. It's obvious that you have a gift to share, and we're lucky you do. I think coaxing a bunch of millennials into taking part in ancient rituals, all while disconnecting from technology and reconnecting to each other and the world, all in a space based upon a "Palace in Time", is risky to say the least, and somehow you're doing it, making Shabbat fun, sexy and not just for Jews. Brilliant." ~ Nick (NYC)

""Dearest Stuart, yesterday evening was such a beautiful dreamy landscape of pleasure and delight and magic. You were the perfect host(ess) - it takes a lot to get me out of the house on a Friday night, even when I first arrived I was feeling unsure and anxious, however you welcomed us so warmly and created such a beautiful event... the ambiance, the conversation, listening to everyone, it was sooo peaceful and divine. Well done you! I had no idea what to expect but you were magnificent." ~ Tom (Berlin)
