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

    $14.50

    “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

  6. Funny You Should Think About a Return to Judaism: A Journey From Comedy Stages to the Wisdom of Sages

    Funny You Should Think About a Return to Judaism: A Journey From Comedy Stages to the Wisdom of Sages

    $15.50

    Funny You Should Think About a Return to Judaism/A Journey From Comedy Stages to the Wisdom of Sages By Richard Morris This book is about priorities. A ship that is changing course will inevitably move forward to another destination. And that course might, indeed, lead that vessel to more inviting and fulfilling waters than at first imagined. Richard Morris is a stand-up comedian and writer who was one of the original writers, and a frequent guest, on NBC's Late Night with David Letterman. He has written a book about his transformation from total devotion to a show business lifestyle, to how he had the chance to realize a deeper, more personal awareness: the story of how he learned about his Judaism again. The spiritual and practical level he had the opportunity to go searching for turned out to be the funny, inspiring and very personal story of his travels, his encounters, and the great clarity that he found. Richard's story is told here. But everyone who is Jewish can apply it to his or her own journey; their own circumstances; their own dreams. Everybody has a story. With Richard's book, non-Jews can also certainly be inspired by this story of Jewish return, to look at their own respective religions in a new, practical, and yes, funny way. It's all about feeling connected to something substantial, of real value, and also about being able to laugh about something that's often looked at as something very serious. Look for this book to entertain, inspire and be revealing. And as it's been said in many Jewish delicatessens through the years: Enjoy! Learn More
