  • Man of Halacha, Man of Faith

    Joseph B. Soloveitchik

    Menachem D. Genack

    Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik was a towering twentieth-century intellectual and rabbinic figure. Scion of several generations of world-famous talmudic luminaries, he was the acknowledged leader of Modern Orthodoxy and religious Zionism, giving intellectual and religious integrity to these important movements. Rabbi Soloveitchik's position in the Jewish community is best epitomized by the fact that he was usually referred to simply as "the Rav", a rabbi's rabbi. A traditional rosh yeshiva, he headed the rabbinic program at Yeshiva University's Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary. A brilliant talmudic authority, the Rav also held a doctorate in philosophy
    from the University of Berlin. He tried to create a symbiosis between the Torah and contemporary thought, blazing new trails in the understanding of Torah and in the application of that understanding to the modern world.

    In this memorial volume, some of the Rav's closest students express an appreciation of his teachings and his impact on them and their contemporaries.

  • Jews in Places You Never Thought of

    Karen Primack

    Descendants of the Marranos (Crypto-Jewish) and possibly the Ten Lost Tribes exist today, and many are now returning to their Jewish heritage. There are also fascinating groups in Uganda, Peru, India, Ghana, and Italy who have chosen Judaim as their religion, despite significant hurdles. This book gives remarkable facts and insights about these and other communities. The articles are firsthand accounts of visits to these isolated Jewish groups written by supporters of Kulanu, a new organization dedicated to finding lost and dispersed remnants of the Jewish people and assisting those who wish to join or rejoin the world Jewish community.

  • The Rav

    Volume 1

    Aaron Rakeffet-Rothkoff

    The Rav: The World of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik: Volumes 1 & 2 have become an essential source to the research and understanding of the foremost Torah thinker of the twentieth century.
    The first volume offers the details of the lives of the Rav and his forebears, including his travels and the many disciplines he mastered. While remaining faithful to the great traditions of Volozhin and Brisk, the Rav was totally at home in the Western world and forged a harmonious existence between tradition and contemporary culture.
    The insights culled from hundreds of audio recordings, lectures and publications of the Rav, have been arranged according to major topics, among them Lithuanian lore, Hasidism, the Volozhin Yeshiva, the Soloveitchik dynasty and many other Torah giants. These volumes are profusely illustrated with over 100 historic pictures of the Rav and his endeavors, many never previously published.
    The second volume views the Rav's world as he attains far-reaching recognition in the United States. The two momentous Jewish events of the twentieth century, the Holocaust and the creation of the State of Israel, are scrutinized through the Rav's insight. The impact of the Rav upon American Jewry is viewed through his experiences and reactions to the Boston and New York communities. The oral tradition and the teacher/disciple relationship come to the fore as the bedrock of the Rav's activities. The preeminence of Torah study, his relationship with Yeshiva University and the R.C.A., his vision compared to that of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, complete the portrait of the man and his achievements.

  • Shtetl Book

    Diane Roskies and David Roskies

    Bernard Scharfstein

    Once, most of world Jewry was divided along The Gefilte Fish Line: cold and calculated Litvaks to the north, warm-blooded mystics to the south. Once, the majority of Jews lived in medieval market towns, surrounded by rivers, lakes, and forests. They were linked to each other through The Three K's: kahal (community), kley-koydesh (religious functionaries), and khevres (societies of common interest); linked to the gentile population through the marketplace; and linked to God through their institutions of learning and prayer. Once, they all spoke Yiddish. The Shtetl Book is their story, told through memoirs, legends, sayings, songs, games, maps, photos, facts and figures. This wonderful mishmash is now back in print, to delight a new generation of readers.
