    The Three Weeks, and especially Tishah B'Av itself, is a time of introspection, when Klal Yisrael as a whole tries to feel the pain of the Churban Beis Hamikdash and relate to it on a personal level. What better way to do this than with Torah Tavlin?

  2. Hakodesh V'Hamikdash-Tisha B'av Kinnos

    Hakodesh V'Hamikdash-Tisha B'av Kinnos

    $16.50

    Historical description from a Torah perspective of the destruction of the Holy Temple and the mourning thereafter throughout the generations from the archives of Rabbi Betzalel Landau of blessed memory including Megillas Eicha and Kinnos for Tishah B'av

    Ten measures of history descended upon the world, Yerushalayim took nine. Jews in Golus always longed and yearned to this wonderful city, though few were fortunate to fulfill their dreams and walk its alleys.

    Follwing the destruction of the second Beis HaMikdash, many complicated Halachic issues aroused which were discussed and ruled upon, by the Gedolim throughout the generations, and by the Rabbanim of Yerushalayim in particular.

    Rabbi Betzalel Landau Z”L, a widely famous and respected author, who was born and lived in Yerushalayim, dedicated many years of research, studying in depth the history and unique customs of the city.

    He subsequently wrote many articles, expanding on all of these fascinating discussions and debates that took place between the most prominent Rabbanim, including interesting historical facts.

    His rich language, and ability to clarify complex issues in a simple and understandable way, is what makes this work unique.

    These articles were welcomed by the public with great enthusiasm. Readers greatly enriched their knowledge and understanding of history of Yerushalayim, evoking a sense of awe. This publication will undoubtedly make our yearning for Yerushalayim yet greater, as we pray for it to be speedily rebuilt. Learn More

  3. Sacrifice, A Father's search for his son during the destruction of the Second Temple

    Sacrifice, A Father's search for his son during the destruction of the Second Temple

    $21.95

    In the twilight of the Second Beis Hamikdash era, the Third Division of the Twelfth Legion of the Roman army is summoned from Syria to bolster Titus's army. On the way to Yerushalayim, the forces pass through a small, neglected village perched at the foot of a volcanic mountain in the Golan. The cavalrymen attack the hapless residents, set fire to the decrepit huts, and capture one of the village children, Yehudah.

    Yehudah's father, in search of his son, sets out on a long, harrowing journey across a bloody, ruined land - a journey that ends in besieged Yerushalayim.


    Yosef Cohen gives us a breathtaking fictional account based on the Midrash and works of our Sages. Sacrifice: A Father's Search for His Son During the Destruction of the Second Temple, is a sweeping drama that pulls on the soul's innermost chords, evoking a melody - the melody of a broken heart.


    It will be hard to remain unmoved after reading Sacrifice. It is a story of faith, of a turbulent dream and dreadful disillusionment.

    Sacrifice is a song and a lamentation:

    a lamentation over the desolate city, a song about the Beis Hamikdash and the Mizbe'ach.

    Sacrifice is actually a memory, a memory of a world that was, and a glimmer of what will soon be rebuilt...

    An evocative translation of the best selling Hebrew edition Learn More

  4. The Laws & Customs of the Three Weeks

    The Laws & Customs of the Three Weeks

    $15.00

    The study of Shulchan Aruch at times is very challenging in terms of clarifying the final stance of the learned subject. This especially applies in instances that many cases and opinions exist within a given topic. In addition, throughout the generations hundreds of practical questions on the laws in Shulchan Aruch arose. Getting a proper grasp on the laws of The Three Weeks especially faces this challenge due to the complexity of the cases and the range of opinions. Even amongst the currently available English literature, the opinion of the greatest of the Achronim, the Shulchan Aruch Harav, is many times omitted or not given its proper presence. Likewise, the Chabad custom related to The Three Weeks is not given their proper presence. This Sefer tackles all the above deficiencies. A clear summary of the rulings of the Shulchan Aruch and, where applicable, Shulchan Aruch Harav and Chabad custom supplemented with the opinions of the Mishneh Berurah and Kaf Hachaim. This is accompanied with hundreds of practical Q&A that were compiled from classical Halachic sources. All this is compiled with informative footnotes that lend the reader background information and other opinions voiced on the subject matter. Learn More
