Rabbi Samuel Waldman, a 60-year-old religious educator, has a diverse background in religious education. He was indoctrinated by the teachings of Horav Hagoan Rabbi Avigdor Miller ZT’L, and used to listen to hundreds of Rabbi Miller’s tapes while encouraging others to do the same. Rabbi Waldman was also close with former Mashgiach of Mirrer Yeshiva, Horav Hagoan Rav Don Segal shlit’a. He started learning in the Kollel of Mirrer Yeshiva before joining the Kollel of the Mercaz Hatorah at Belle Harbor, New York, where he hoped to eventually take over as Mashgiach of the High School, a teaching post. After two years in the Kollel, he became the Mashgiach of the High School.

In the course of his career, Rabbi Waldman has been delivering weekly lectures on proper Torah living and on topics of Emunah to the High School boys in each class separately, and has also had one-on-one discussions with them to encourage them to become true Ben Torah. He delivered lectures that many of his students encouraged him to write a book about. Rabbi Waldman also taught at Yeshiva Tiferes Moshe in Queens, NY, from 1986 to 1999 and has taught in a few summer camps over the years, leaving his mark on many hundreds of students over a 20-year period.

In 2002, Rabbi Waldman published the book ‘Beyond A Reasonable Doubt: Convincing Evidence to the Truths of Judaism’, which sold many tens of thousands of copies and is still selling. It explains the fundamental tenets of Jewish faith in an extremely straightforward way and has been acclaimed as a classic by those in the field of kiruv. Rabbi Waldman’s current writing project is a book about proper prayer, which he has been working on for the past 10 years. The book discusses everything that makes Orthodox Jews spend so much time in prayer and explains what we should be doing as a result. It contains ideas that most Jewish people don’t know about and promises to be a classic on the subject of prayer. Rabbi Waldman, the author, spends a lot of his time in intense prayer, and his book shows the method of proper prayer.
