  • Roni Akarah

    Rabbi Yaakov Hillel

    Why are some couples childless while others are blessed with children? What can a childless couple do to merit children? What is the Torah perspective on childlessness?

    These questions are not new; they date back to the time of our forefathers. Our Sages and later Rabbinic sources discuss these painful issues, providing insight, guidance, and practical advice. Rabbi Yaakov Hillel, Rosh Yeshivah of Ahavat Shalom in Jerusalem and the author of many works in Halachah and Kabbalah, presents and explains the teachings of our Sages and great Torah authorities, along with Halachic guidelines relevant to the childless. He brings these couples hope and encouragement, while helping them come to grips with the possibility that the prayers of some may remain unanswered. A comprehensive anthology of prayers and Torah verses is included for the benefit of both childless and expectant couples.

    About the Author

    The Gaon and Kabbalist Rabbi Yaakov Hillel, shlita, great-grandson of Hacham Moshe Hillel, who served as Av Beit Din and chief Rabbi of Baghdad in the time of the Ben Ish Hai, is one of the outstanding Sephardic rasei yeshivot today. He is the author of many books on Halachah and Kabbalah, and rabbis and laymen throughout the world turn to him for advice and instruction. He stands at the helm of the highly acclaimed institutions of Ahavat Shalom, which he founded in Jerusalem in 5732 (1972).

    Ahavat Shalom is one of the world's largest midrashim and it includes an exclusive branch for the training of rabbinical judges and a select group of scholars engaged in the study of Kabbalah. The Rabbinical Court of Ahavat Shalom sits in judgment every day to resolve litigation in monetary matters. Its publishing house has, to date, printed 355 rare and valuable manuscripts of Sephardic sages.

  • Freiing Out

    Binyamin Tanny

    Do you want to know why people abandon their Judaism?
    Binyamin did, as he watched friends and siblings go "off the derech," certain he would soon follow. While the people around him cast blame on parents, teachers, rabbis, the system, hypocrisy in the community and so on, Binyamin wanted to know the real reason, or at least a solution -- and the solution was not blame. What he discovered shocked him. After years of fighting his way through multiple religious systems, much soul searching, and speaking with hundreds of parents, educators and youth around the world, he is sharing his discoveries.
    Freiing Out examines the six types of people at risk, eleven key factors that may contribute to going off the derech and eight techniques that can be utilized to prevent people from leaving their Judaism. As Jewish education is crucial in keeping alignment with observance, this book aims to identify what good Jewish education is, how to find balance between Jewish and secular education, and how it all relates to home and school life.
    This is not the kind of book to read and say, "interesting research." It is firsthand experience and a wealth of inside information that will move parents and educators to take action and prevent more Jewish children from losing their connection to Judaism.
