  1. The Challenge of Jewish History

    The Challenge of Jewish History


    There is a well-known conundrum concerning Jewish history: The conventional chronology of the Western world - and academia - is in direct conflict with traditional Jewish sources over the history of -- history. Incredibly, there is a gap of roughly 200 years: For instance, the Talmud says the Second Temple stood for roughly 400 years, while mainstream historians today conclude that it stood for almost 600 years.

    This conflict has major implications on what occurred to who, and when. It also seems to question the accuracy of the entire Jewish tradition as accepted dating methods seem to contradict core parts of the traditional Jewish narrative.

    In presenting fresh and startling astronomical, mathematical and archaeological evidence, Rabbi Alexander Hool has charted new ground in his quest to find the solution to this ancient problem. The Challenge of Jewish History is revolutionary: it questions all assumptions, dispels unfounded myths, and transports us back in time over 2,500 years.

    With a subject of great significance and fascination to all those interested in history, and a wealth of scholarship and sources to impress academics, this intriguing book gives us a new perspective on Jewish-and world - history.

    About the Author: Rabbi Alexander Hool grew up under the tutelage of his father, Rabbi Maurice Hool of Kingsbury, London, UK. He learned in Gateshead Yeshivah for many years under the direction of the Rosh Yeshiva, Rav Avrohom Gurwitz, and then moved to Israel where he has been studying (in Ponevezh Yeshivah and Kollel) for over twenty years. An eminent scholar, he has developed a particular expertise in history, dating, mathematics, and other unique and intriguing subjects.

    He is the author of the acclaimed work Toras Yom VoLaylah and has published a fundamental study on ancient astronomy and its implications regarding the Halachic Dateline, as well as an analysis of the Murex Trunculus as a possible source of the ancient blue dye 'Techelet'. His most recent publication is a comprehensive investigation of the classification and calibration of measures and distances used in the Middle East before the Common Era. Learn More

    הרבי בפאריז


    סקירה קצרה... "הרבי בפאריז" שתי מילים אלו מהווים בכלל תשוקה וערגה. יושבים יהודים בצוותא, בשבת אחים גם יחד, ואחד מהמסובים מספר סיפור מהרבי — הדבר צובר התעניינות ותשוקה מצד הנאספים. ועל־אחת־כמה־וכמה כשהמספר פותח את דבריו שזה סיפור מ"הרבי בפאריז". "הרבי בפאריז" – אלו מאורעות נסתרים ובבחינת "מופלא" ו"מכוסה" שעם השנים החלו להתגלות, ועצם דבר זה מעורר תוספת צמאון. בספר ימצא הקורא הנכבד סקירה על הרבי בפאריז. סקירה זו מהווה אשנב מיוחד לדמותו של הרבי ובבחינת "האור שלפני ההתגלות" שכל־כך חשוב לקהל חסידי ומקושרי הרבי. הספר נחלק לשלושת שלבי שהות הרבי בצרפת: א) לפני מלחמת העולם השני'. תקופה בה הרבי והרבנית שהו בפאריז מחודש ניסן תרצ"ג ועד ערב חג השבועות ת"ש. ב) נתיב ההצלה מעומק הבכא. הרבי והרבנית הוכרחו לעזוב את פאריז בערב חג השבועות ת"ש ושהו בתחילה בעיר ווישי, ואחר כך בעיר ניס ובעיר מרסיי. ממרסיי הגיעו לליסבון, פורטוגל, ועלו על אני' שהפליגה לארצות הברית, והגיעו לארצות הברית "לחוף מבטחים" בכ"ח סיון תש"א. ג) הביקור בשנת תש"ז. הרבי בא לפאריז, להביא את אמו לארצות הברית. הרבי שהה אז בפאריז כשלושה חודשים, מכ"ו אדר עד כ"א סיון.

  8. Herald of Destiny Compact Size, The story of the Jews in the medieval era 750-1650

    Herald of Destiny Compact Size, The story of the Jews in the medieval era 750-1650


    To modern man, the Middle Ages is a distant, mysterious and forbidding period. It is primitive in technology, brutal in violence, and superstitious and servile in society. But it was also a time of pageant and grandeur, of discovery and wonder, of great achievements and lasting progress, when men of genius and industry laid the foundations for our modern world. Those who have preceded us have in the main been neglected in our assessment of current life.

    Jews in the Middle Ages achieved great heights of power, wealth, scholarship and creativity - the Golden Age of Spain, of Rashi and the Tosafists, R' Yehuda Halevi and Maimonides. The Jews were part of the Renaissance, the catalysts for the Reformation, sponsors of arts, exploration, and commerce. But it was also a terrible time for Israel. The Almohad persecutions, the Crusades, the Black Death, the burning of the Talmud in Paris, the bitter rivalries, and quarrels within Jewish society itself all combined to paint the era in blood and despair.

    Rabbi Berel Wein, in this book, has woven an informative tapestry out of the events of the Jewish Middle Ages. Its historic figures come alive and we appreciate their greatness. The Sephardic world and the Ashkenazic society, the longing for Zion and redemption, the intrigues and truths of history are here faithfully explained. The story of the Jewish people in the Medieval Era is told with wit, knowledge, accuracy and emotion. As in Triumph of Survival, Rabbi Wein has not settled merely for a history of the Jews. Herald of Destiny will make our modern Jewish milieu and its problems more understandable by illuminating for us the great medieval Jewish world that preceded us. Learn More

    Echoes of Glory Compact Size, The story of the Jews in the classical era 350 BCE-750 CE


    Rabbi Berel Wein has become a household word on six continents, as a foremost rosh yeshivah, rabbi, lecturer and historian. His scintillating presentations of Jewish history have won him a host of admirers - and deservedly so.

    Perceptively, wittily, wisely and accurately, he presents an ancient story as if it were happening before our eyes. He relates old dilemmas to today's problems and shows how Jewish history is an endless and inspiring continuum.

    In this, his third masterwork, Rabbi Wein takes us from the end of the First Temple Era to the times of the Geonim. He transports us to the eras of Alexander the Great; the miracle of Chanukah; the creation of the Mishnah and Talmud, and how they saved Jewish life for all time; the Roman Empire and the courageous rebellion of Bar Kochba; the rise of Christianity; such great Geonim as R' Saadia, R' Sherira and R' Hai, and how they led the monumental Torah centers of Babylonia and North Africa; the emergence of Islam and the Jewish response; Jewish life taking root in the then-barbarous lands of Europe.

    Rabbi Wein places Jewish history in the context of the times. Just as important, he tells it from the perspective of the Jews, not through the eyes of Jewry's enemies and conquerors, as history books commonly do.

    The author has a voracious appetite for history and even the places where it happened. When he tours the world, he sees it as the locale of Jewish eternity, the settings where our nation took shape, the building blocks of today. His broad experience lets him paint the picture of yesterday with the broad strokes of scholarly insight.

    In this new volume, Rabbi Wein introduces us to times that were exotic, exciting, dangerous, triumphant. This book does them justice. Seldom is a must reading so enjoyable. Learn More

  10. Triumph of Survival Compact Size, The Story of the Jews in the Modern Era 1650-1995

    Triumph of Survival Compact Size, The Story of the Jews in the Modern Era 1650-1995


    Most books on modern Jewish history have been written by "outsiders" looking in. This book, Triumph of Survival, is written by an "insider" looking out. It tells the inner story of the people of Israel, which most often escapes the secular historian. It also places this inner story of Israel within the perspective of general world history, something which many traditional Jewish historians have failed to do.

    The facts of Jewish history force judgments upon us. Divine Guidance, the Torah, and Jewish commitment are central to our story over the last 300 years. The book does not create myths nor does it come to revise our understanding of IsraelÂ’s history. Replete with facts, dates, and anecdotes, it records a story that has somehow escaped the notice of even many Jews. It informs and inspires.

    The pain and struggle of the present become more understandable when one knows Jewish history. An ignorant Jew is dangerous. A perpetuation of mythical fantasies about the personalities and events of the last centuries is harmful to our growth and strength. This book can help end the reader's ignorance regarding Jewish life since 1650.

    Finally, this is a Jewish history book, not merely a book about the Jewish people and its history. The author is a student of the great scholars and leaders he mentions. He is engaged in the daily communal struggle regarding the historical forces loosed in the Jewish world in the modern era. Jewish history is not a subject or a field of academic discipline to him. It is his life's work, his vocation and his career. Consequently, this is also a very passionate and personal book. Jewish history has never been neutral about human beings and events. This book is not neutral about Jewish history. Learn More
