  4. הרבי בפאריז

    הרבי בפאריז

    $28.00

    סקירה קצרה... "הרבי בפאריז" שתי מילים אלו מהווים בכלל תשוקה וערגה. יושבים יהודים בצוותא, בשבת אחים גם יחד, ואחד מהמסובים מספר סיפור מהרבי — הדבר צובר התעניינות ותשוקה מצד הנאספים. ועל־אחת־כמה־וכמה כשהמספר פותח את דבריו שזה סיפור מ"הרבי בפאריז". "הרבי בפאריז" – אלו מאורעות נסתרים ובבחינת "מופלא" ו"מכוסה" שעם השנים החלו להתגלות, ועצם דבר זה מעורר תוספת צמאון. בספר ימצא הקורא הנכבד סקירה על הרבי בפאריז. סקירה זו מהווה אשנב מיוחד לדמותו של הרבי ובבחינת "האור שלפני ההתגלות" שכל־כך חשוב לקהל חסידי ומקושרי הרבי. הספר נחלק לשלושת שלבי שהות הרבי בצרפת: א) לפני מלחמת העולם השני'. תקופה בה הרבי והרבנית שהו בפאריז מחודש ניסן תרצ"ג ועד ערב חג השבועות ת"ש. ב) נתיב ההצלה מעומק הבכא. הרבי והרבנית הוכרחו לעזוב את פאריז בערב חג השבועות ת"ש ושהו בתחילה בעיר ווישי, ואחר כך בעיר ניס ובעיר מרסיי. ממרסיי הגיעו לליסבון, פורטוגל, ועלו על אני' שהפליגה לארצות הברית, והגיעו לארצות הברית "לחוף מבטחים" בכ"ח סיון תש"א. ג) הביקור בשנת תש"ז. הרבי בא לפאריז, להביא את אמו לארצות הברית. הרבי שהה אז בפאריז כשלושה חודשים, מכ"ו אדר עד כ"א סיון.

    The Gadol Hador, An Inside Glimpse of Maran HaGaon HaRav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, zt"l

    $23.75

    Inspiring stories and hanhagos told firsthand by an American-born ben bayis!

    Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, zt"l, was a man whose incredible dedication to Torah study established him as a leader of Klak Yisrael and one of the most revered poskim living in our times. Yet, only those privileged to see him up close could experience the full range of his spiritual greatness.

    The Gadol Hador is a compilation of true stories about Rav Elyashiv's life, written by Binyomin Kirschner, an American bachur who came to learn in yeshivah in Eretz Yisrael and ended up becoming a ben bayis in Rav Elyashiv's home. With the encouragement of many prominent rabbanim, the author records what he and others close to the rav saw and heard, weaving together an accurate, intimate look into the life of Rav Elyashiv - his daily routine, how he related to others, and the discipline and principles that guided his life. Filled with hundreds of personal full-color photographs, this book highlights not only the Rav's passion for Torah, but also his sterling middos. Here is an inside glimpse of Rav Elyashiv's humility, warmth, pleasantness, and love for every Jew. Learn More

    Hacham Ovadia was many things: an extraordinary posek, an engaging teacher, a sensitive and devoted bet din judge, a political powerbroker, and a rabbi tirelessly dedicated to the Jewish People. This book focuses on his life, his mission in restoring the primacy of halachah among Sephardic communities, his infinite ahavat Yisrael, and his vast scholarship, brilliant halachic rulings, and the halachic approach he developed and promulgated. Much of this book is based on Hacham Ovadia’s own words in his lectures and writings.

    This work is a product of years of extensive research conducted by well-known Sephardic author Yehuda Azoulay and his team, who combed through Hacham Ovadia Yosef’s fifty-three published works. The autobiographical information, anecdotes, and opinions of Hacham Ovadia, which were unearthed among his halachic responsa, have become the heart of this book. In this way we present to you a unique understanding of this larger-than-life figure and his far-reaching accomplishments.

    Hacham Ovadia was a remarkable blend of scholarly genius and human sensitivity; boldness and humility; courage and compassion. We have included inspirational vignettes, excerpts from key lectures, scholarly discussions on core issues, and many actual halachic rulings, so that every reader, at every level, will gain inspiration from this exceptional sage.

    This beautifully written and fascinating book on Hacham Ovadia’s multifaceted life and accomplishments will both inform and inspire you, from the beginning until the very last page. Learn More

    Our Father, Our Child, The Captivating Story Of A Daughter-In-Law’s Devotion

    $21.95

    Over the years, Pa had become a legend; now, this giant of a Jew was old and bent and broken. His eyes were filled with tears of self-pity. How could I force him to take yet another step?

    “Pa,” I said softly.

    He turned to face me. “For what?” he cried. “For what purpose do you insist on forcing me to walk when I have no place to go?”

    “Why I force you to walk?” I answered. “So that when the Mashiach comes, you’ll be able to run to greet him.”

    By then, I was crying. “How will you be able to run to greet Mashiach when you can’t even walk the length of this porch?”

    Never taking his eyes off me, Pa loudly blew his nose, grabbed hold of his walker, and made it to the door.

    When Sudy Rosengarten’s parents-in-law decided to spend their final years in Jerusalem, Sudy, her husband, and children made the extraordinary decision to uproot themselves from their home and community, and accompany them. Thus began a journey not only over the ocean, but into the past, as Sudy coaxed Pa’s incredible story out of his reluctant mouth. At the same time, she struggled with her own story — navigating the daily conflicts between the needs of her elderly parents-in-law and those of her children, and finding her own place in uncharted terrain.

    Written with honesty, warmth, and humor, beloved author Sudy Rosengarten gives us a candid look at the heartfelt relationship between parent and child, child and parent — and the love that sweetens all. Learn More
