  • Sarah’s Daughters Sing a Sampler of Poems by Jewish Women

    This first fruit of the Jewish Women's Poetry Project contains 180 poems by Jewish women singing the life of Jewish daughter, sister, wife, friend, lover; mother and ancestor of future generations; worshipper and questioner of God. The book opens with three triads: Lilith and Eve with Adam; Hagar and Sarah with Abraham; Leah and Rachel with Jacob. In the next section, themes taken from these lives find their counterpoint in the lives of women now. Rachel's hunger for a child echoes in the questions of a young woman considering insemination by an unknown donor. The sisterhood of Eve and Lilith, embodied in tomorrow's daughters, faces the sons of Adam and Abraham. These poems are robustly female and deeply Jewish. They tell of what it is to be a woman, a Jewish woman, yesterday, today, tomorrow, and in terms that both men and women can understand. More than sixty illustrations enhance the text Learn More
  • Shadal - Torah Commentary

    Samuel David Luzzatto

    Luzzatto's Torah commentary presents the reader with the work of an accomplished and highly respected Bible Commentator of the 19th century. Luzzatto was a leading Bible scholar at the university of Padua,Italy, who tackled the well worn theories of Bible critics who deny the Divinity of the Torah, both Gentile and Jewish. His commentary preceded, by 40 years, that of Dr. David Hoffman, head of the Berlin Rabbinical seminary, which first appeared in 1904 and also addressed Bible critics. Luzzatto's credentials as an expert in all the languages that could have had an influence on the text of the Torah are beyond question. His highlighting the moral superiority of the Torah to any competing classic work on morality is most refreshing.

  • The Art of T'Shuva

    Rabbi David Samson and Tzvi Fishman

    T'shuva is the healthiest feeling possible. A healthy soul in a healthy body must necessarily bring about the great joy of t'shuva, and the soul consequently feels the greatest natural pleasure.

    Even if a person cannot immediately redress all of his wrongdoings, he should know that there is great value in simply wanting to be good.

    What matters the most is the striving for perfection, for the striving for perfection is perfection itself.

    Every Jew has his own specific pathway to t'shuva. General T'shuvas will not suffice. Everyone has to find the path appropriate for his own unique soul and unique role in life.

    The force of t'shuva, like gravity in the physical world, is built into the inner fabric of life. It stands as the impetus behind all world development and endeavor toward social improvement.

    The rebirth of the Jewish nation in the Land of Israel is the foundation for the ultimate t'shuva, both for the nation of Israel and for the world.

    The future will reveal the miracle of t'shuva, and this revelation will capture the whole world with an incredible fervor, far greater than all of the wonders which the world is accustomed to see.

  • War and Peace

    Rabbi David Samson and Tzvi Fishman

    Rabbi Kook reveals that great wars quicken the footsteps of Mashiach and advance the Redemption of Israel. The uprooting of tyrants, and the triumph of good over evil, prepare the world for the great light of Israel.

    Often startling in its condemnation of Western civilization's moral decay, Rabbi Kook's writings on war reveal a little-known side of his giant Torah personality. Written during the height of World War One, his essays read like prophecies heralding the rebirth of The Jewish nation in Israel, a miracle which began to unfold in the aftermath of the war.

    To balance Rabbi Kook's essays on war, the book's commentators have compiled a selection of Rabbi Kook's writings on peace. True Shalom, he explains, can only be achieved when the nation of Israel is united and guided by Talmidei Chachamim and by the light of Torah. 

    When one understands the the Redemption of Israel is the goal of world history, one can discover a new spiritual dimension in all of the world's revolutions and wars.

    Our heroes of the past, Abraham, Moshe, Joshua, King David, and the Macabbees, were complete in their spiritual binding - mighty in Torah, mighty in holiness and mighty in war. our identification with them, and our desire to emulate them, awakens our inner potential.

    There are times when Israel is forced to adopt the politics of war, not from a lust for killing and conquest, but to put an end to all war.

    Modern western culture, with all of its immorality and falsehoods, will disappear from the world, the holy culture of Israel will be established in its place.

    While the general outlook on peace maintains that man's inner peace will come only after world peace is achieved, the opposite is true. Peace begins at home. this is especially important for the nation of Israel, which is destined to lead the world to Shalom.

  • Was Yosef on the Spectrum?

    Samuel J. Levine

    9 Review(s)
    Yosef's behaviors, interpersonal relationships, and personal development are often difficult to understand, and at times seem to defy explanation. This book offers a coherent and cohesive reading of the well-known Bible story, presenting a portrait of Yosef as an individual on the autism spectrum. Viewed through this lens, Yosef emerges as a more familiar and less enigmatic individual, exhibiting both strengths and weaknesses commonly associated with autism spectrum disorder.
