  4. The Ultimate Jew, Biography Of The Rebbe

    The Ultimate Jew, Biography Of The Rebbe


    A book by a longtime Chabad chossid who merited unique interactions with the Rebbe and a major activist with Chabad's outreach with Russian speakers was reprinted this week.

    The Ultimate Jew, originally published in 2003 and which has since been out of stock, was jointly written by Professor Herman Branover and the late Maariv newspaper journalist Avraham Nave.

    The 291-page English book, based on the two's previous works in Hebrew, depicts the Rebbe's image and leadership from the points of view of an academic and a journalist, but also from the point of view of a fervent chossid such as Branover.

    It explores the Rebbe's fundamental teachings and why so many people are attracted to the Rebbe, "the most dynamic spiritual leader in the Jewish world and a man of great renown and admiration in the world at large."

    As both a magnetohydrodynamics expert and as a follower of the Rebbe, Professor Branover has had a tremendous impact on the spiritual lives of many Jews worldwide and on the scientific and economic development of the Israeli tech industry.

    For many years, this physicist was privileged to have a close relationship with the Rebbe and was active in all areas of Jewish and scientific life. At the Rebbe’s instruction, he set up an employment infrastructure in Israel to serve the influx of Russian Jewish immigrants in the late 80s and early 90s.

    The book begins with an overview of the origins of the chassidic movement in Russia, transitions into an illustration of the Chabad dynasty and its distinguishing features, and finally focuses on the Rebbe’s continuous influence.

    The Rebbe’s fundamental teachings, his bond with his followers, his attention to matters concerning the Land of Israel, his perspective on so-called contradictions between Judaism and science — all of these and much more are addressed in The Ultimate Jew.

    Perhaps most interestingly, The Ultimate Jew broadly addresses the matter of Chabad’s raptness with Moshiach and the Redemption, its centrality in the Rebbe’s teachings, and its extraordinary impact on the Jewish people and the entire world.

    "My father knew how to approach the subject of Moshiach so that people can understand our 'obsession' with it," says his son, businessman Danny Branover, who led the republishing and re-editing of the book, set to be released this week. "If people want a true picture of the Rebbe, who better than my father, who lived to be a Chossid, to tell the story." Learn More

  6. Habad Portraits #3

    Habad Portraits #3


    This volume includes chapters on:

    * The Lubavitcher Rebbe's Personal Diary

    * Who was the Rebbe's paternal Grandfather

    * Fifth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rashab: his life, accomplishments and Yeshiva

    * Reb Yoel Kahan's letters

    As the title suggests, this book is a series of portraits of different people, events, and curiosities in the history of Habad Hasidism. It tells of many unknown or little understood aspects of the Rebbes' lives, the stories of the children of Habad Rebbes who did not themselves become Rebbes, the stories and viewpoint of the 'foot soldiers' of Habad in different eras, of forgotten outreach campaigns and initiatives, and even the stories and perspectives of those who broke away or rebelled.

  7. Nothing Bad Ever Happens, The incredible true story of A young girl alone escaping the Nazis

    Nothing Bad Ever Happens, The incredible true story of A young girl alone escaping the Nazis


    “I’m scared,” Rachel said. “And if I’m scared they’ ll know something is wrong and they’ ll figure out that I’m Jewish and they’ ll turn me in.”

    Father sat down on a bench and asked Rachel to sit down next to him. “I know you’re scared. We all are. But you can find it in you not to be scared. You’re much stronger than you think.”

    If only Rachel Blum could live the carefree life of a normal eleven-year-old — jumping rope, playing with friends. Instead, the frightened, isolated girl must struggle to survive in a world bent on destroying her.

    Rachel is growing up in war-torn Poland in the 1930s and must smuggle in food for her family. She is hidden by a non-Jewish couple whose son works for the SS. When called upon to join a dangerous scheme to escape a train teeming with Nazis, Rachel must draw upon reserves of courage and strength she never even knew she possessed.

    Talented author Yaakov Astor skillfully relates Rachel’s miraculous story of survival in this action-packed account interwoven with sheer determination and stalwart emunah. Nothing Bad Ever Happens is the true story of an adolescent who manages to answer desperation with ingenuity, suffering with hope. Rachel lost everything yet felt she lacked nothing, leading her to the point where she could truly say, “Nothing bad ever happened to me.” Learn More
