I am so grateful that Hashem blessed me with such a wise, compassionate and yashar Rav. Rabbi Smith’s approach is one of strict adherence to Torah while balancing each individual’s needs. I have never felt judged and feel I can be totally honest and expect guidance that is tailored to where I'm at now, while kindly helping me to be better and better. The Rav has a unique ability to really understand where people are coming from, integrate such deep Torah and relate and advise with it in mind. When I teach over concepts that Rabbi Smith teaches me and that I live by, people constantly ask me who my Rav is and I am extremely blessed!!

As a baales teshuva, I can very easily pinpoint those in my journey who have played a key role in shaping my Torah outlook on life. The lessons I have personally learned from Rabbi Smith – both as a seminary/shiur student and in 1-1 meetings throughout the years – have been integrated into my life and shaped how I approach decision making on a daily basis. With the guidance from Rabbi Smith, I can confidently say that my relationship with Hashem continues to grow and mature, and I know the coaching I receive is meeting me exactly where I am in life in that moment.

Rabbi Smith is one of the most caring, intuitive, supportive and wise teachers I have the privilege of learning from and seeking guidance from. With his gifted sensitivity, and ability to really see and hear me, I feel safe to ask guidance about anything and I have received invaluable insights into myself, my subconscious, my experiences, and relationships. From our meetings, I leave with not only a sense of being witnessed and understood, but also a sense of clarity, direction, and feeling empowered. More than once has his guidance opened my eyes and helped me make decisions that were for my highest good. It's truly a blessing to receive counseling from Rabbi Smith!

Rabbi Boruch Smith is one of the few people that has seen me in depth, and given me the advice and guidance that I need to hear, considering where I stand today and my potential. Always listens carefully, asks questions and finally speaks the right amount of words. He is always there when needed, supporting and orienting. I feel tremendously grateful of Gd for giving me the honor of meeting Rabbi Smith. I’m sure that with his sensitivity and experience many people will be able to blossom.
