"Our monthly newsletter is a critical tool for the museum in building our public image and communicating with our supporters. As the editor, Elana has developed the newsletter into a highly-regarded publication that regularly receives praise for its writing, design and content. Even more impressively, the newsletter she produces actively engages its readers as is evidenced by 'open and click' rates, and has caused an increase in donations to the museum. I am often surprised in fact by how closely our recipients follow our updates and this is in no small part to the wonderful work that Elana does.
"Over the nearly six years that Elana has worked with Beit Hatfutsot her knowledge and skills in the area of marketing communications have helped produce our signature quality content. She is a talented writer, a consummate professional, and a pleasure to work with."

"We met two years ago, and since our paths have crossed, I do not have enough words to describe the service that you give our organization, which is exceptional in the spectrum of giving in Israel. And that is despite your busy and intense schedule. The support, the vision, the strategizing, and your knowledge and understanding of Jewish philanthropy and Israeli society have enabled us to build sharp and focused content, with a strong influence on our own audiences. Thank you for all the hours spent on writing, editing, and framing our important materials in a way that helps us grow and be the kind of strong organization that we want to be."

“I want to express my enormous gratitude to you, Dr. Sztokman, for helping me prepare my lecture for the theology conference at the Shalom Hartman Institute.

"When outsourcing work, I used to ask myself whether it would be easier to undertake the task myself. Outsourcing often compounds the problems, and in the past I often felt burdened by additional work. When working with Elana I have full confidence. She is a professional, she is committed to quality, but most importantly takes responsibility for the work she is doing. She is a full partner. Her knowledge and expertise bring added value to any project she undertakes. It's a pleasure and relief to work with a person of such outstanding caliber."

"Dr. Elana Sztokman designed the first on-line course on academic writing for the M.A. program at the Schechter Institute for Jewish Studies in Jerusalem.Her knowledge about writing filled in important gaps for many students who benefitted from the course and whose papers have improved significantly since."

"As an Investment House that corresponds with many bodies around the globe, we have been assisted many times by the services of Dr. Sztokman. I must say that the quality of the writing, the editing of the text, and the diction were of the highest level and to our complete satisfaction.
I would like to add that in the process of writing the texts, it was necessary to use professional lingo from the investment world, including very specific terms, and it was necessary to learn the entire topic in depth and not just be satisfied with a simple translation. Dr. Sztokman dedicated time to learn the field and I have no doubt that a result of this, her writing and editorial work was of the highest standard that we could possibly anticipate."
