What Clients and Researchers Say About Us

Rabbi Dr. Baruch M. Hilsenrath | Principal, Yeshiva Ktana, Passaic, NJ

I worked very closely with Mark Trencher of Nishma Research on a major research project focused on factors in parental choice when deciding upon an elementary school. The successful completion of this research was due solely to Mark’s dedication, brilliance, efficiency and masterful analysis. Working with him was one of the most meaningful highlights of my 35-year educational career.

Mark displays a sense of conviction in everything he does. He will not rest until the project is not only complete, but that the results are meaningful, practical and presented in a professional manner. If you work with Mark, you will have chosen the best both in personal character and in professional analysis.

Mark supported each part of the process, with quick turnaround for deliverables, expert recommendations and a collaborative, team-based approach – he really listens!
