  1. Security for the Land of Israel - The Lubavitcher Rebbe

    Security for the Land of Israel - The Lubavitcher Rebbe

    $41.00

    We are living in times when the words of the Torah concerning the solitude of the Jewish people " lo, it is a people that shall dwell alone" (Numbers 23:9) ring so true. There are many coalitions throughout the world, from without and within, that are attempting to undermine Israel's security by imposing impossible and ruinous demands that Israel relinquish its G-d-given rights to their own Land. The Rebbe dedicated hundreds of talks, pouring out his heart, pleading and demanding that Israel does not accede to these unreasonable and dangerous demands. Giving up land, for an illusion of peace, is not only a betrayal of G-d who gave us the land but it will pose the single greatest threat to the security of Israel. Millions of lives are at risk; and even one life is enough to warrant our strongest sense of protest against relinquishing any part of Israel. The concern for the security of Israel and the rejection of any compromise in this regard, the Rebbe based on a clear and unequivocal law (Hil. Shabbos sec. 329) that states that a Jewish enclave surrounded by armed enemies must never allow them to occupy any part of Jewish land even if they promise not to attack. The Jewish community is obliged to even wage war to prevent that from happening even if it is the holy day of Shabbos. We owe a debt of gratitude to Rabbi Binyomin Schlanger for collecting and skillfully translating into the English language the Rebbe's cry for sanity in the Holy Land, making the Rebbe's historic and timeless words available to the English-speaking public. Rabbi Schlanger translates the Rebbe's words spoken originally in Yiddish into readable and accessible English. Rabbi Greenberg, Buffalo, NY: "It is incumbent on all who are concerned for the security of Israel and the lives of all its inhabitants, and for all for whom the Rebbe's pleas that stemmed from the depths of his holy heart and soul, strike a responsive chord in their hearts, - to disseminate this work to the widest audience.

    A Very Important & Timely Book Beautifully Presented With A Selection Of striking Color Photographs.

  2. As Dawn Ends the Night

    As Dawn Ends the Night

    $23.75

    Connection to a higher world seems almost hopeless to us; we do not even know what a real connection might look like. It is not that we have lost it; we feel as if we never had it to lose. We feel the space of centuries setting us apart from the age of miracles and prophecy. As we try to warm ourselves by that distant fire, we wonder - why is the world this way? Why is the era of revelation now only a story? And is there any way to bring that ancient story to life? This book examines the fading of revelation over history and points to the dawning of a new kind of light. Learn More

    Yerushalayim. A city that stands or is destroyed, because of one man's hatred of his brother.
    Or...one girl's hatred of her sister?

    Chava and Tirtza. Two sisters pushed hard and far away from each other. But even as they pull and tear themselves and each other apart, they realize that the bond between them is too strong to break...

     

    With battle cries in the air, and so many young soldiers falling all around her, Chava Warinsky becomes engaged to a wonderful chassan. But like the trajectory of so much of her life, her joy is shortlived-because of her sister Tirtza.

    Yechiel Eisenman is denied his desire to sit and learn, as he is dragged into defending the Old City. But with his brother Chatzkel calling the shots, he finds himself playing a role that is a whole lot more dangerous than he ever anticipated.

    Sisters under Siege unfolds against the backdrop of Israel's raging War of Independence. In this beautifully written, intricately woven historical novel, readers are given a taste of the throbbing feelings of the time, the emotions that ran deep within every Jew of this era. And as we follow the painful and triumphant twists and turns of both the characters of this novel and the residents of Yerushalayim at this time, we discover that beneath the differences of every Jew is a core of goodness, a deep sense of caring for the other.

    Sometimes that goodness can push one to make great sacrifices for a brother-or a sister.

    And in those sacrifices lies hope. For in them lies the road back to Yerushalayim. Learn More

  9. From Djerba to Jerusalem, The Extraordinary Story of Rebbetzin Shulamit Bitton Blau

    From Djerba to Jerusalem, The Extraordinary Story of Rebbetzin Shulamit Bitton Blau

    $24.75

    Many countries. Many lives. 
    And one overwhelming love, for Hashem, His Torah and His People. 
    Meet Shulamit Bitton-Blau. You're going to love her.

    One foggy day in northern England, a young woman danced into the relatively new girl's seminary that had been founded in Gateshead, wearing an enchanting smile, a bright purple coat, and sandals. The only child of a family deeply rooted in Djerba, the legendary island of Kohanim, Shulamit Cohen was Sefardic, a miracle child whose Jewish education had taken place entirely at home. Yet within moments of her arrival she felt entirely at home in Gateshead - and Gatehead felt entirely at home with its new, unusual and exuberant student.

    It was that exuberance, coupled with her rock-solid emunah and her unparalleled love for Torah, which carried Shulamit through her many journeys and challenges. That wide-eyed student grew up to be the wife of an impoverished Torah scholar in Gateshead, a rabbanit in Marseilles when her husband was appointed av beis din, a widow who married off eight children, and, after her remarriage, the wife of one of the outstanding figures in Yerushalayim's Eida Chareidis.

    Quite a journey; and Shulamit was quite a personality. Bestselling author Libby Lazewnik brings her to vivid life: her unusual optimism in the face of daunting circumstances and her devotion to her family - a family that included all of Klal Yisrael.

    From Djerba to Jerusalem is an engrossing story. More: it's an eye-opening, heart-opening look at the power of chesed, emunah, and love. Learn More
