From the very first contact I had with R' Moshe Kormornick I knew this was someone I could and would work with.
His erlichkeit and mentchlichkeit come through tangibly and are matched by his efficiency and professionalism.
I certainly plan on turning to him with future publications and I highly recommend the same for anyone who would like to publish - especially someone trying to break in to this highly competitive market.
R'Moshe's sense of if,what and how, is keenly devoloped, making him the ideal address for those wishing to write and publish.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Rabbi Moshe Kormornick Shlit'a of Adir Press for making The Pocket Halacha Series - Published by Adir Press into what it is today. It only started as a small booklet to be sold in a few shuls and yeshivos, and with R' Moshe's vision, it became a worldwide professional publication. The hours that R' Moshe put into this project, simply because he believed in it, and saw the potential for its success is to be admired. Advice on anything from the editing, typesetting, distribution and even how to market the set was something R’ Moshe took in his stride, and with his calm self, made the rough process of publishing an easy walk.
Publishing a book can be difficult, this was even more so since it was like making 8 books at the same time, but yet, any time of the day or night, R’ Moshe made himself available for this project.
I owe him and Adir Press a tremendous amount of Hakaros Hatov, and wish to acknowledge that without them, The Pocket Halacha Series would never have happened.
I wish him much success in all that he does, and highly recommend anyone that wishes to produce high quality work to first turn to R’ Moshe and his talented crew, and I am sure they’ll be satisfied from the professionalism that is offered by his services.

Dear Rabbi Kormornick
Thank you for your incredible input into bringing my book into reality. You were the first publisher I approached and from the first time we spoke, I felt you were the right shliach from Hakodesh Boruchu and so I looked no further.
I must state that your professionalism together with your meticulousness brought my writings to a much higher level in many ways. You were always quick to respond and it was so easy working with you and your wonderful team. I would certainly recommend you to anyone writing and wanting to publish a book.
I wish you continued success in you avodos hakodesh.

Rabbi Yaakov Schwalbe
Rabbi Moishe Kormornick combines professionalism, experience and his sterling middos to provide an exceptional service.
His advice in producing my kuntras proved invaluable.
I highly recommend his services.
It was truly a great experience publishing my sefer with Adir Press. Rabbi Moishe Kormornick operates like a true friend helping and advising at every step of the way, and makes the process run as quickly and as smoothly as possible. His team of editors gave insightful comments and their wonderful editing work greatly enhanced and perfected my sefer. The graphic designer did an excellent job and raised the quality and the beauty of the sefer.
And even with all their hard work, my sefer was printed within five months of signing the contract!
I feel that it is due to Rabbi Kormornick’s altruistic intent to be marbitz Torah and his sincerely personifying a ben Torah that is making his company grow so successfully.
Rabbi Mordechai Appel - Derachim BeParsha
I hope that this brief testimonial does justice...
Your professionalism and your publishing know-how was readily apparent and appreciated. From the typesetting, interior design and page layout, to the attractive and appealing book cover, you really did a beautiful job through and through.
Not knowing where to turn I began looking in Jewish bookstores for a publisher. One book in particular caught my eye and I decided to contact the publisher. That publisher was none other than Moishe Kormornick of Adir Press. Moishe has been a pleasure to work with from the beginning all the way to the printing phase. His input has been constructive and encouraging. His patience and thoughtful advice have been well appreciated. Above all his enthusiasm and attention to detail has made this project worthwhile and rewarding.
They say you can't judge a book by its cover, but in my case Adir Press made such a beautiful cover that the saying does not apply. The cover totally captures the content of the book.
Again I want to thank Adir Press for their excellent work and i strongly recommend their expertise to anyone who wants to have their book published in a first rate manner.
author of "Mafteach Latorah"
With tremendous gratitude and hakaras hatov to HaKadosh Baruch Hu, I am most pleased to recommend the services of Rabbi Moshe Kormornick and Adir Press. From my initial communication with him, Rabbi Kormornick treated my first sefer as if it was a project of great importance to the Jewish world at large.
Although I had already invested in my own editor, Rabbi Kormornick, in his wisdom and desire to make my book as good as it could possibly be, assigned his own top editor who added immeasurably to our project. He worked closely and sensitively with me through the entire process, from contract to content to cover design.
Any serious Jewish author would be very fortunate to involved with Rabbi Kormornick. May Hashem bless him and Adir Press with great volumes of bracha and hatzlacha!
Rabbi Moshe Krieger
Moishe was easy to work with and always helpful and available. The book was published quickly and efficiently and the price was reasonable.
In my mind it was a bonus, and a big one, that he also had a lot of great insights into the content of the book itself and how to put my message across to my audience most effectively.
I have dedicated many years to completing my latest seforim on Hilchos Ribbis and it was crucial for me that the publishing process went smoothly. This is my fourth book so I know about how things work, and so, when I met Rav Moshe Kormornick of Adir Press, I could see that he was going to take great care of the production and be there for me to answer my questions, and help me make decisions. I especially was intent on having it look very attractive and arranging strong distribution.
I also shopped around in terms of pricing and found Adir Press significantly cheaper than everywhere else I looked.
I can honestly say that Adir Press fulfilled and even excelled all my wishes! I was in contact almost every day with Rav Moshe as he guided and advised me on the decision-making process.
The printing process was beyond what I could imagine. I thought that printing 500 two-volume box sets would be an arduous process taking a long time, yet I received my books very quickly! And in terms of the quality, I am amazed how beautiful everything came out — from the quality of paper to the beautiful cover, I did not imagine how choshuv the seforim would look!
Thank you Adir Press for producing such a beautiful looking book, and especially thank you to Rav Moshe for his support throughout. Based on price, professionalism, and personal support I cannot recommend them enough!
Rav Gedalya Finkel shlit"a - "Pathways of Mussar"
I was very pleased with his ambition, his insights and how he really gets things done. To laud about his middos tovos is an understatement.
I highly recommend him for anybody who wants things to get things done and done professionally.
Reb Moshe, aleh vehatzlach!
Chaim Golker - "Journey Through Nach"
As a newcomer to the Publishing industry and authoring my first book, Moshe Kormornick guided me through all the ins and outs of the complexities of the Publishing world.
The most remarkable thing about working with Moshe is his infectious enthusiasm and the way he treats each and every project he is a part of as his own. He invests dozens of un-contracted hours to ensure each project he takes on meets his high standards of quality.
Producing the 2-volume box set- ‘Journey through Nach’ was a mammoth task for all involved, but Moshe’s level-headedness and professionalism made it possible. Equally, I was impressed by the expertise of all the staff at Adir Press ranging from editors, proof-readers, typesetters and front-cover artists; each did their job meticulously and to the highest standard.
‘Journey through Nach’ has been exceptionally well received and its’ success surpassed our expectations. This is largely down to the exceptional work of Moshe and his team at Adir Press. I am so grateful to each and every individual who invested so much time and effort into our books!
I would like to wish Moshe much Hatzlocha in all his future endeavours and may Adir Press continue to produce high level Sifrei Kodesh. I would definitely recommend any prospective author to use the services of Adir Press.
Boruch Sirisky - "Noa's Strength"
Moishe Kormornick possesses that rare quality of being able to live up to the maxim of Shammai the Elder: “Say little and do much” (Pirke Avos 1:16). I have known this to be true in the various contexts in which I have worked with him. While learning together with him in the same kollel in Yerushalayim, I was impressed by his ability to sit and concentrate on a long Tosefos, line by line, reserving comments for when he had something constructive to add to the discussion. As part of the more personal relationships that naturally arise from joint Torah learning, I have always found him to be a friend with a listening ear, a storehouse of creative ideas, and above all a bastion of devotion to a fellow Jew. It was for these reasons, in addition to the fact that he impressed me as a talented master of the English language and a tireless worker, that I asked him to edit the book that I wrote about my late wife. I handed him a manuscript two to three times too long to be realistically publishable, and he, together with his wife Yehudis, was able to make the work “say” far more little and “do” far more.
Their time, dedication and concern for every aspect of the project was exceptionally impressive and very comforting to me, having never written a book before. Moishe was always on the other end of the phone, guiding me with patience and going above and beyond what was required of him. He also coordinated everything with Mosaica Press so that as far as I was concerned, everything ran smoothly the whole way through. And thankfully, almost as soon as the finished product hit the stores, it pretty much sold out. And that is all thanks to Moishe and his wife for taking 150,000 words of thoughts, Torah, stories and randomness, and making it into a wonderful 85,000 word book – perfect for what it was written to do: Inspire people by learning about my first wife's fight for life.
And I owe it all to Moishe. I can truly say that this book would not have been published without his work and dedication, let alone a great success,
Therefore, without a doubt I recommend Moishe and his team at Adir Press, and am confident that anyone who wants to have their work published in a professional and attractive manner will be very happy at Adir Press.
I am happy to be reached directly to discuss what I experienced and to recommend Adir Press personally to you.
Rabbi Moshe Kormornick of Adir Press gave me a lot of time and attention from our very first conversation, and my impression throughout the process was that he wanted to do his maximum to help me. Since my book was a revised edition, I only needed help with distribution and printing, so while I cannot comment on his other services, like editing and typesetting, he did give very helpful advice on distribution.
For the printing I was particular that it should be really good – inside and out. He took special care to select the best quality printer he could find and I am truly pleased with the result.
Everyone says the book looks great! Thank you!
No words can express my appreciation!
Everything’s perfect! Thank you.
I am personally very grateful to Hashem for allowing me to have met R’Moshe Kormornick and his team at Adir Press.
I would also like to express my gratitude to R’Moshe for his extremely dedicated work that he put into editing and producing the “Nishmat Sarah Haggadah” for the Sephardic community of Montreal, Canada.
I can proudly say that he performed a job of ‘true excellence’ on every aspect of the book and at every step of the way! He is not only an editor, but was also my writing coach and advisor throughout the entire project.
From editing to typesetting, and from proofreading to the book’s cover design, Adir Press is a 5 star choice which comes highly recommended on behalf of me and the entire Sephardic community of Montreal, Canada.
I would also like to highlight a crucial part that R’Moshe played in my project; which was, not only is he a professional in his field, but he also throws himself 100% into each and every project that he is involved with – diving in with all his heart. I believe that this itself is a crucial difference that R’Moshe and the entire Adir Press team possesses over anyone else.
I strongly advise and recommend Adir Press as your choice to produce your book – from start to finish they were incredible!
For further information, I am happy to speak to you directly to highly recommend R'Moshe and Adir Press.

Rabbi Shmuel Wittow -"The Forty-Eight Ways To Acquire Torah"
I found working with Rabbi Moshe Kormornick and his team at Adir Press on my most recent sefer ‘The Forty-Eight Ways to Acquire Torah’ a refreshing experience.
R’ Moshe went out of his way to ensure that the sefer was published in the most professional way possible.
One example of R’ Moshe’s dedication to my project was that he personally proofread the sefer in order to meet our Pesach deadline so as not to burden his proofreader by asking her to work at such a busy and pressured time of the year. (Bear in mind that he only received the final manuscript 2 weeks before Pesach!!)
In addition, the entire Adir Press staff were extremely professional in all aspects — from the cover design to the interior layout — the final product speaks for itself!
I am delighted to recommend Adir Press to any author who wants a dedicated team to care for their book as if it was there own, every step of the way.
Rabbi Yehonasan Gefen - "The Guiding Light 2"
I merited to know Rabbi Moishe Kormornick for many years before we worked together on my book – The Guiding Light 2. I was already aware of many of his wonderful character traits and Yiras Shamayim. Yet my respect for him took on new levels after publication of the book. I was fortunate that Rabbi Moishe himself took on the task of editing my book and I was extremely happy with his work – it was very thorough and reflected his own significant knowledge of Torah and Hashkafa. His suggestions greatly enhanced the quality and depth of my writing.
Other traits that I was already familiar with was were his reliability and consistency – from past experience with other books I recognize that this is not always the case with busy publishers and editors. Yet Rabbi Moishe always gave me the impression that he would reach the deadlines he had set and indeed he always succeeded.
And I could not help be positively affected by his enthusiasm at the success of this project – another key aspect in the book industry.
I was also very happy with every other member of the Adir Press Team – the excellent proofreading, graphic design and typesetting serve to demonstrate that Adir Press is professional organization that can rival the best publishers.
I strongly recommend any prospective author to work with Adir Press.
Rabbi Moshe Kormornick - "Short Vort"
Obviously it is unfair to write a testimonial about my own publishing company. So instead, I will take the opportunity to thank my wonderful staff at Adir Press (formerly 'Short Vort Publications') for their dedication and hard work - going above and beyond to make this project a great success. The editing, typesetting, cover design, proof reading and printing teams all worked in perfect harmony to produce an attractive, professional book, and I would like to thank all of you for doing such a great job.
It is such a pleasure to work with people who love what they do. They are not just here to collect the paycheck at the end of the month, they are trustworthy, hardworking and dedicated people who want to produce the best possible book. They work tirelessly to make sure that everything is right, and take great pride in everything that they do. They are such a wonderful team – a real pleasure to work with!
