  1. The Jewish Way in Death and Mourning

    The Jewish Way in Death and Mourning

    $27.95

    For over thirty years Jews have turned to Rabbi Maurice Lamm's classic work for direction and consolation. Selected by The New York Times as one of the ten best religious books of the year when it was first published in 1969, The Jewish Way in Death and Mourning leads the family and friends of the deceased through the most difficult chapter of life--from the moment of death through the funeral service, the burial, and the various periods of mourning.

    Now, in this thoroughly revised and expanded edition, Rabbi Lamm explores a wide range of new issues and questions that Jews of the twenty-first century must address. Special consideration is given to the subjects of organ donation, autopsy, the question of a woman's right to say Kaddish, mourning practices as they relate to the stillborn, the permissibility of converts to Judaism to mourn their Gentile parents, and the bereavement rights of individuals who by Jewish law are not required to mourn but who nonetheless wish to express their grief in accordance with Jewish tradition.

    In addition to exploring the sensitive issues that the contemporary mourner must confront, The Jewish Way in Death and Mourning is remarkable in that it gently leads the mourner through the corridors of Jewish law and teaches the aching heart how to express its pain in love and respect so that it might begin on the road to eventual healing.

    "That a book on death should today be a Jewish best-seller of all times testifies to the pre-eminence of rites connected with death among the most widely kept Jewish observances--from Kaddish, to Yizkor, and alas today to Holocaust commemoration. Rabbi Lamm's book is distinguished by its readability and its comprehensive treatment of all related subjects, including brain death and autopsies. The book will be read with wide interest and provide a gateway to an important rubric of Jewish thought and philosophy."

    --Lord Immanuel Jakobovits, former Chief Rabbi, British Empire

    "The Jewish Way in Death and Mourning is a recognized classic that is as relevant today as it was when it was first published thirty years ago. It has guided and comforted countless people at the most difficult times. This revised edition provides additional insights and updates information in light of medical, scientific and sociological changes. It addresses issues that have taken on greater significance and immediacy over the years. It is a sensitively written work that deals with subjects that are too often ignored or avoided despite their halakhic priority. Regrettably, it is a necessity for every Jewish home."

    --Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations Learn More

    Hand in Hand with Hashem, Practical Advice and Spiritual Guidance for Giving Birth with Serenity

    $21.95

    "It is important to remember that the process of labor and childbirth is a difficult one indeed, and is often characterized by emotional changes or even medical complications. Successfully coping with this process requires great mental strength. Mrs. Nechamah Epstein's talented work provides women with the necessary tools to prepare for this wondrous process. Learning about the various stages of labor is the first step to a calmer, more "in control" labor, and this book fills this role perfectly.

    Hand in Hand with Hashem walks the reader through the labor process, step by step, from preparing for contractions to the various phases of labor, until the actual birth. I am positive that mothers-to-be who read this book will be better equipped and more prepared for their impending labor. They will enjoy a more pleasant experience through every step of this wonderful process of bringing new life into our world."

    Professor Chaim Yaffe, Head of Gynecology and Obstetrics Dept., Bikur Cholim Hospital, Jeruslaem.

    "A precious book, dealing with pressing matters of faith, Torah outlook and encouragement during childbirth... There is no doubt that this book will be a source of strength for the mother-to-be."

    Rabbi Chaim P. Scheinberg, zt"l

    "Rich in content, written with great effort by a woman... vastly experienced in the field..."

  6. Chanie Goes to the Dentist

    Chanie Goes to the Dentist

    $11.50

    Bubby nodded and said, “Chanie, dear,

    I know this may not be pleasant to hear,

    But I think that a cavity is causing you pain.

    You’ll have to see your dentist, Dr. Shain.”

    A cavity?! Horrible images passed through my head;

    My heart and mind were filled with dread.

    Would it hurt to have it fixed? What would I do?

    And what if the dentist found not one cavity–but two?!

    Fear of the dentist—and particularly of having a cavity filled—is quite common among many people, especially young children. The very idea of a cavity filling may cause children to think of all the scary “what-if” scenarios that could occur in such a situation. Of course this only serves to increase their fear exponentially. In Chanie Goes to the Dentist, written by the author of the popular Moshe Goes to Yeshiva, the “dentist fears” that children like Chanie may have are quickly, calmly, and effectively laid to rest as the exact procedure of what occurs at Chanie’s cavity-filling appointment is recounted and explored in a straightforward, child-friendly, and yes, fun way. Your child will love the book’s rhymes and endearing illustrations, and before long will shed his or her “dentist fears,” along with Chanie, too! Learn More
