  • Business Ethics

    Volume 21

    Moses L. Pava

    Jewish Library of Law and Ethics Volume 21
    Praise for Business Ethics: A Jewish Perspectives
    In the twenty-first volume of the Yeshiva University/ KTAV Library of Jewish Law and Ethics, a Yeshiva University professor explains the relevance and applicability of Judaism's religious law and moral vision to the realities of the businessperson's practical life. Pava divides the book into three parts. Part 1 discusses why people often fail at business ethics and how they might succeed. Part 2 discusses the goals, substance, and method of Jewish business ethics. Part 3 examines corporate social responsibility and the use of inside information. Pava interprets classical Jewish writings in light of our contemporary business world. In a society where ethics seems to be a concept of the past, businessmen and businesswomen, Jews and non-Jews alike, could benefit from Pava's keen insights and practical approach.

  • Moses and the Path to Leadership

    Zvi Grumet

    Many believe that the stories surrounding the birth of Moses mark him from the cradle as being destined for leadership. Others argue that the track record of Moses as a leader leaves much to be desired, and that without the constant prompting by God, he would never have survived. The central proposition in this book is that neither of these polar positions reflects the profound transformations and growth of the experiences of Moses and that it is only within the turbulent space of change that he becomes a great leader, but not without his fair share of missteps along the way. It is precisely within, and from, those mistakes that Moses learns and ultimately becomes a model leader. This book traces this path to leadership and readers are given close readings of the text as stepping stones to developing themes and patterns. Learn More

  • Moses: Envoy of God, Envoy of his People

    Mosheh Lichtenstein

    Moses, master prophet and teacher, devoted the lion's share of his career to his role as leader of Israel. Moses: Envoy of God, Envoy of His People follows the path of Moses' development as a leader from the moment he appears on the scene as a young lad in Egypt until his departing farewell address to his flock. The book details crisis and commitment, frustration and doubt, selfless devotion and identification, along with trust and alienation. All of the relevant episodes, from the first encounter between Moses and the quarreling slaves to his dealings with the second generations are analyzed and examined, from the perspective of the relationships between the leader and the people.
    The method of interpretation is based upon a literary analysis of the text that attempts to delve into the inner world of the leader and his interactions with the people. The result is a Midrash-oriented approach that creates a fascinating combination of textual analysis and emotional insight.
    The book also contains a methodological chapter that spells out the exegetical approach and the philosophical outlook that the literary analysis is based upon.

  • Moses’ Women

    Shera Aranoff Tuchman and Sandra E. Rapoport

    The story of the man Moses, born Hebrew and raised as Egyptian royalty, cannot be told without an understanding of the women in his life. The Bible tells us that Moses was born to Yocheved, daughter of Levi, third son of the Hebrew patriarch Jacob. He was watched over by his sister, Miriam, drawn from the Nile waters by Batya, daughter of the Egyptian Pharaoh, and married to Zipporah, daughter of the high priest of Midian.
    This book draws upon the midrash, the Talmud and other Rabbinic sources to reveal stories of the women who reared Moses, bore his children, advised him, and shared the glorious life of history's premiere religious heroic figure. Moses' women intervened to save him time and again, when his very life was trembling in the balance, helping to mold Moses into an empathic man, leader and teacher. Moses' Women tells the riveting stories of these and other women of the exodus. Learn More

  • The Five Books of Moses: An Easy to Read

    Sol Scharfstein

    Sol Scharfstein's new translation of the Torah is truly a first in the field of Jewish education and publishing. Written with a sense of piety and awe for the majesty and sanctity of the biblical text, it conveys the content of the Five Book of Moses in language that is easy to read and understand. The message of the Bible is ageless, but for full comprehension, it must be presented in language suited to the time and place of the reader. Scharfstein's fluent, idiomatic translation does exactly this"replacing the ancient robes of 4000 years ago in which the Torah was given on Sinai with up-to-date garments of the 21st century that preserve its inner essence but make it familiar and "user-friendly." The English translation is presented side by side with the original text, making this volume an excellent tool for those who are learning biblical Hebrew. The weekly readings and their divisions are all clearly designated, and each book of the Torah is preceded by a brief introduction that explains its most important aspects.
    All in all, this new translation will prove to be an invaluable tool in Jewish education and an essential addition to the home library of every Jewish family.
    Sol Scharfstein is the author of numerous children's books and Jewish educational texts, including . . . , as well as a very popular new translation of the Passover Haggadah with full instructions and a traditional commentary. Learn More
  • Moses Cordovero’s Introduction to Kabbalah

    Ira Robinson

    First published in 1587, Moses Cordovero's now classic introduction to Kabbalah, Or Ne'erav, was intended to serve several purposes; it was meant both to provide a justification for the study of Kabbalah and to encourage that study by providing detailed instructions for interested laymen on how to go about that study; indeed, it was intended as a precis of Cordovero's much larger Pardes Rimmonim.
    In many ways, Cordovero was ideally suited to compose such a work. His teacher of rabbinics was no other than R. Joseph Caro, author of the Shulhan Arukh, which rapidly became the halakhic code par excellence. His master in Kabbalah was Solomon ha-Levi Alkabetz, whose sister he subsequently married. The result of his studies with both was no less than a kabbalistic "code," a systematic kabbalistic theology of the Zohar, the basic text of jewish mysticism. But this work was too large, and too complex to be easily mastered. Moreover, it assumed too much previous knowledge to serve as an introduction to the subject; hencce the need for Or Ne'erav.
    Or Ne'erav succeeded in fulfilling all these purposes, and has remainded a classic introduction to the study of Kabbalah-and is used as such to this day. Dr. Robinson's accurate but readable translation is the first English rendition of this essential work.
    About the Author
    Ira Robinson is Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Religion at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He has published numerous articles on the study of Kabbalah in modern times. Learn More
