    Home of Miracles, The Inspiring Story of Zion Orphanage & its Founder, R' Avraham Yochanan Blumenthal

    $23.75

    What do Member of Knesset Avraham Ravitz, Member of Knesset David Azulay, and Beit Shemesh mayor Moshe Abutbul all have in common?

    Answer: They all grew up at Zion Orphanage!

    Consider just one story from the orphanage:

    Eliyahu watched as his mother lost her mind and was institutionalized and his father, unable to cope, chose the destructive path of drugs. He was extremely withdrawn and distrustful. At seven years old, he barely spoke to anyone. At Zion Orphanage, he first encountered caring, responsible adults worthy of trust. Various activities were chosen to help him emerge from his shell and build his confidence: arts and crafts, martial arts, music, computers, gymnastics, as well as speech and play therapies. For Eliyahu, the answer was music. Over the next nine years, his latent talent emerged full force. He began composing music and became lead singer in our Zion Choir.

    Today, Eliyahu is headed for a career in music.

    Today, Eliyahu displays such confidence and joy that you would never imagine the dark and cold world of his first years of life.

    This is an incredible, inspirational, and one-of-kind book about an incredible, inspirational and one-of-a-kind place. Discover the secret of how one man's passion and integrity ignited a legacy that has made Zion Orphanage the world's longest-running Jewish orphanage. Learn More

    Forever in Faith, The Sassover Rebbetzin Reflects

    $23.75

    It was dark and cold, and we were working, exerting ourselves, hacking boulders, dragging stones, and running back and forth. We worked all night without receiving a morsel to eat or drink. But each night at midnight, the same act of chessed repeated itself: the slave laborers on the other side of the wall risked their lives and sent over a huge pot of hot coffee to infuse our tortured bodies and souls with a bit of life.

    I will never forget those moments of revival. It was another deeply moving display of compassion in the depths of the darkness…

    The riveting story of the Sassover Rebbetzin is illuminated by rays of chessed and emunah. The physical and emotional suffering the Rebbetzin experienced are beyond comprehension. The challenges she faced after the war were enormous—yet her submission to the Divine Will overpowered every obstacle.

    Follow the Rebbetzin on her arduous journey, and hear the story in her own words. They will surely strengthen your emunah. Learn More

  5. Lashon HaKodesh: History, Holiness & Hebrew

    Lashon HaKodesh: History, Holiness & Hebrew

    $23.75

    Throughout Jewish literature, the Hebrew language is referred to as Lashon HaKodesh. Its history, origins, decline, and rebirth are simply fascinating. Furthermore, at its deepest level, Lashon HaKodesh is called such ("the Holy Language") because it is intrinsically sacred -- and is thus unlike any other language known to Man.

    Lashon HaKodesh: History, Holiness, & Hebrew seeks to understand the holiness of Lashon HaKodesh, follows its history, and focuses on the significance of Aramaic and other "Jewish languages" such as Yiddish and Ladino. An extended section is devoted to Modern Hebrew, its controversies, and its implications from a religious perspective. This unique work delves into the linguistic history of each "Jewish language", as well as the philological, Kabbalistic, and Halachic approaches to this topic taken by various Rabbinic figures through the ages. The author also compares and contrasts traditional Jewish views to those of modern-day academia,offering proofs and difficulties to both approaches.

    As the old saying goes, "Two Jews, three opinions." In almost every chapter, more than one way of looking at the matter at hand is presented. In some cases, the differing opinions can be harmonized, but ultimately many matters remain subject to dispute. Hopefully, the mere knowledge of these sources will whet the reader's intellectual curiosity to learn more.

    Written by a brilliant young scholar, Lashon HaKodesh: History, Holiness, & Hebrew is ground-breaking, intriguing, and remarkable.

    A Stone Speaks, The Voice of the Kotel

    $23.75

    ISRAEL. JERUSALEM. THE WALL. SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME, THIS PLACE HAS BEEN THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING.

    G-d directed Abraham to offer Isaac in sacrifice here. King David chose this city as his capital. His son, Solomon, built a magnificent Temple here, which was destroyed by the Babylonians. Ezra and Nehemia led the renewed Jewish presence here and rebuilt the Temple. Herod rebuilt the Temple to its glory - and then the Romans destroyed it, forbidding Jews from residing in their own capital.

    Nevertheless, generation after generation, Jews did all they could to return here. Famous and not-so-famous Jews made the difficult journey here. Foreign empires were fascinated by this place - and attacked it often.

    SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED HERE. IF ONLY STONES COULD SPEAK AND TELL THE STORIES OF THE WALL...

    In this original, easy-to-read, and informative book, one of the stones of the Wall speaks to us, recounting stories, nuggets of history, and inspirational vignettes that together form the tapestry of the Wall. In this fascinating page-turner, readers experience history from the "inside". The history of the Wall becomes our story. The story of the Wall is the story of our People - and our lives. Learn More

  7. Heaven’s Tears

    Heaven’s Tears

    $23.75

    Her grandfather, youngest son of the revered Sanzer Rebbe, the Divrei Chaim, had promised her she would survive. Was it possible?

    Sima Halberstam Preiser grew up in a majestic chassidic household, related to many of the great Rebbes. "Tell me a story of the Sanzer Zeideh" she would beg, and then, entranced, she would hear how her illustrious great-grandfather, the Divrei Chaim, had peddled apples to help an impoverished Jewess or miraculously located a woman's missing husband.

    When she was nine years old this sheltered little girl became a fugitive from the Nazis, a smuggler slinking in the shadows, risking her life for a slice of bread, walking barefoot in the snow to find her imprisoned sister. Her journeys would take her into bunkers hidden beneath haystacks, into Hungary's most infamous prison, into a world of death, brutality - and open, unbelievable miracles. Her flight from the Nazis would lead her, also, to the homes of luminaries such as the Munkatzcher and Bobover Rebbes, refugees of joy and faith in a world of despair.

    Heaven's Tears is the story of a courageous Jewish child, an outspoken free spirit who grew into a remarkable Jewish woman. Beautifully conveyed by bestselling author Rabbi Nachman Seltzer, it is an unusual mixture of Holocaust memoir and fascinating tales of Chassidic greatness.
