"Rabbi Miller was not solely a rebbi of young women. Every week he gave a Shabbos shiur in his home and another in Gateshead Kollel. These were packed with men and bochurim who delighted in his profound introduction to Rav Dessler ztz”l and the world of hashkafah, enhanced always by his wonderful sense of humor. I consider him, along with Gateshead’s roshei yeshivah and mashgichim, as one of my greatest teachers. Much of what I teach today and how I teach it is due to his inspiration"
Rabbi Y.Y. Rubinstein, Inwood, N.Y.

"I found it ironic that a column meant to destigmatize those unable to do it all didn’t actually publish the names of the women demonstrating that it is okay not to be perfect. This just further validated my belief that “perfectionism” is a real problem in our community and is the impetus for so many of our other challenges — either directly (such as the shidduch crisis, eating disorders, extreme materialism, etc.), or indirectly by not allowing people to seek help lest they appear to be “damaged” or “imperfect,” chas v’shalom."
