    Ahrele #3, The Incredible, Touching Story of Rav Ahron Margalit, Part 3

    $19.00

    The amazing true story of Aharon Margalit's drive to triumph over all trials and tribulation from childhood through adulthood has been a bestselling source of inspiration to adults in As Long As I Live. This graphic story presentation has been adapted for children to inspire them while entertaining with the fascinating story of his life.

    "I have always been a man of dreams — of vision, hope, and faith. I remember myself holding on to my dreams for dear life from a very young age. I drew strength from my dreams to deal with life, to overcome difficulties, and to keep on trying. In the course of my life I have seen — more than once — that sometimes dreams do come true, especially for those who believe and pray that the day will come when they will indeed come true."

    "One question comes up over and over again whenever I meet with children and adults: You had such a hard childhood. You contracted polio at the age of two and a half, and you were left with a severe handicap that affects you to this day. You spent years in a hospital and than in a home for handicapped children, far from your home, your friends, your family. The people around you criticized you harshly. You stuttered badly for many years, which led to many social and emotional difficulties. How did you succeed in overcoming the feelings of inferiority that accompanied you during those years to become a popular speaker in Israel and the world over? I know that many children (and adults, too) suffer from feelings of inferiority. In this book, I tried to give you some guidance on how to overcome those negative feelings that sap your spirit, weigh you down, and prevent you from reaching the potential that Hashem Yisbarach implanted in you. If I succeed, with Hashem's help, in ridding myself of these negative emotions, every single one of you can, too. Daven to Hashem to help you, ask advice when necessary learn from other people's experiences — and believe that you can do it! I have confidence in your ability and pray for your success.

  4. The Ultimate Jew, Biography Of The Rebbe

    The Ultimate Jew, Biography Of The Rebbe

    $19.00

    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

Overall, everyone thought the material was clear, very understandable, and super helpful (even to the more advanced learners). Some students have a very limited Torah learning background, and they were also able to access and benefit from the material.” -Rabbi Jonathan Shulman, Director of OU/JLIC at Penn Hillel. Learn More

    Baron Rothschild, The Life and Times of Baron Shimon Wolf Rothschild

    ROTHSCHILD – the name alone conjures images of colossal wealth and influence. Although many in the family were not observant Jews, Baron Shimon Wolf (Wilhelm), grandson of the founder of the Rothschild dynasty, was an exception. A tzaddik and first-class Torah scholar, he stood behind nearly every Jewish religious undertaking in nineteenth century Europe. Who was this great philanthropist about whom so little is written? Could it be that he came to know authentic Judaism through…an Italian priest?!

    Here is a fascinating, true story of intrigue and triumph, peril and deliverance, all woven together with the golden thread of Divine providence. History comes alive as you meet the Gedolim of this pivotal era, and travel from Naples to Jerusalem, Istanbul to Frankfurt, in search of a long lost child. Dramatic and inspiring, Baron Rothschild enthralls as it reveals the beauty of Torah combined with riches, permeated with the fear of Heaven. Learn More

    The Rabbi and the Nuns: The Inside Story of a Rabbi’s Therapeutic Work with the Sisters of St. Francis chronicles the highlights of a twenty-year working relationship between Rabbi Dr. Abraham J. Twerski and the nuns and priests of the Pittsburgh Diocese and St. Francis Hospital. Spearheading a groundbreaking rehab program, Rabbi Twerski and the nuns develop a working connection that transcends their religious differences, forges mutual respect, and brings them to a whole new level in ecumenical relations. Insightful, inspiring, and humorous at times, Rabbi Twerski’s personal account is frank and engrossing. We are given a rare glimpse into the inner world of spiritual leaders as they grapple with their personal struggles to adjust to today’s tumultuous times. Rabbi Dr. Abraham J. Twerski served for twenty years as the director of the department of psychiatry at St. Francis Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The author of more than sixty books, he has also been featured in hundreds of magazines and newspapers. Two of his books, When Do the Good Things Start? and Waking Up Just in Time, were written in collaboration with the late Charles Schulz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip. Rabbi Twerski is the scion of great Chassidic dynasties and traces his ancestry back to the Baal Shem Tov, founder of the Chassidic movement. He has lectured extensively on chemical dependency and other topics such as stress, self-esteem, and spirituality, and has traveled the world as a spokesperson for recovery on behalf of the millions who have achieved it, inspiring and encouraging those still finding their way.
