    Effective Living, An upbeat and uplifting life can be yours

    In Effective Living, Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D., shares with us two of the most important truths he has learned in his many decades of cutting-edge work, both as a psychiatrist and as a rav.

    Change is hard. And change is possible.

    Drawing upon his years of experience with thousands of people who want to live meaningful and satisfying lives, he shows us how to become more effective in our relationships - as parents, as spouses, as employees and as human beings living in an increasingly complex world. We learn how to walk the fine line of "assertiveness" - the balance between passivity and aggression. We discover how to motivate ourselves and others; how to uncover just what it is we really want to do, and how to make it happen; how to find the strength within us to change "I wish" to "I will."

    Dr. Twerski does not back off from addressing many of the ills of contemporary society, such as eating disorders, anxiety and depression, "burnout," and ADHD. Whether it is we or our loved ones who must deal with them, we will gain immeasurably from his balanced and compassionate perspective on understanding and coping with these challenges.

    Effective Living includes sections on parenting young children and adolescents, on the specific challenges of the "sandwich generation," on issues of aging, and on the primary importance of prayer-its profound power and the peace of mind it proffers. And of course, the book features the true-life stories that bring Dr. Twerski's wisdom to vivid life.

    In Effective Living, Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D. takes us on a grand tour... of ourselves, our personalities, our minds, and our amazing capacity for growth. Learn More

    My Father, My Mother & Me

    So many books about parenting. Finally - a book about our parents.

    Everyone knows the importance of kibud av va'eim. Honoring parents is one of the Ten Commandments, something that every Jewish child learns in school.

    And then we grow up. Of course, we still want to be good sons and daughters. And yet, do we really understand how to fulfill this never-ending mitzvah — as adults?

    Do we know how the Torah expects us, grownup children, to treat our parents? What about stepparents or in-laws? What are our financial obligations? How do we balance our own needs, and the needs of our family, with those of our parents? What happens when our parents divorce? Or if a parent has a difficult or abusive personality? Do we have to love our parents?

    Rebbetzin Yehudis Samet, veteran educator and author of the classic The Other Side of the Story, brings us a book that is a game-changer; or, rather, a life-changer. It's a tour-de-force that includes:

    More than 170 stories of sons and daughters - of all ages - rising to the challenge of kibud av v'eim

    Strategies and common sense advice on dealing with the sensitive issues of "the sunset years"

    Comprehensive and clear halachos of kibud av v'eim

    My Father, My Mother and Me is a must-read book for everyone. Because everyone is someone's child. Learn More

  10. The Mountain Family

    The Mountain Family

    $24.75

    From the Appalachian backwoods comes a family so amazing, a story so incredible, and a light so bright — it will illuminate our own lives as well. When Sheryl Youngs married John Massey, she looked forward to a life based on the Biblical principles her parents, members of a small but fervently religious congregation, had instilled in her. What she didn't expect was to be making that life in a shack on a mountain in impoverished Appalachia. And she didn't expect that she would end up living on that mountain, homeschooling her ten children. And she most certainly didn't expect that somehow, incredibly, miraculously, she and her entire family would discover the truth of Judaism, the beauty of Torah - and the Jewish People the entire family would ultimately come to join. This is the story of the pastor's daughter who became a Jew, mother of ten Jews, all devoted to Torah learning and mitzvah observance. It is a story of struggle and search, of searing disappointment and unlooked for hopes, of questions asked and prayers answered. Most of all, it is the story, told in her own words, of a woman whose deep love Torah is an inspiration to us all. Learn More
