    The Halachos of Succah, Comprehensive Guide to Halachos of Mitzvas Succah & their Practical Applications

    $23.75

    Succos is Z'man Simchaseinu, the time of our joy. The mitzvah to live in a succah is one that is both revered and beloved by Jews everywhere. A Yom Tov meal in a beautifully decorated succah has a unique capacity to elate and to elevate.

    An entire masechta of Gemara and a number of simanim in Shulchan Aruch are devoted to the halachos of the succah. How a succah must be built and how one must live in it are governed by extensive halachos and a vast number of details.

    This precious mitzvah is incumbent on all, including those who do not have the time or the ability to acquaint themselves with all of these intricate halachos. Furthermore, the modern world has brought innovative new types of succahs that were not discussed in the halachah works of earlier generations.

    For these reasons, Rabbi Yosef Kaiser has undertaken to write this comprehensive work on the mitzvah of succah. The sefer leaves no stone unturned in exploring the length and breadth of hilchos succah, and in providing precise guidance on how the mitzvah is to be fulfilled in today's day and age. Extensive Hebrew footnotes trace the source of each halachah, from the Gemara to the rulings of the great halachic authorities of our generation. The sefer contains hundreds of such rulings, including some that were never before published. Full-color diagrams help clarify the concepts.

    The Halachos of Succah is not only an invaluable tool for anyone looking to perfect his performance of the mitzvah of succah, it will also open new vistas for those who are learning Maseches Succah.

    Includes dozens of full color diagrams. Learn More

  7. Just Imagine! We're Going to the Beis Hamikdash, An original, fascinating portrayal of the simchah in the Beis Hamikdash during the Yom Tov of Sukkos

    Just Imagine! We're Going to the Beis Hamikdash, An original, fascinating portrayal of the simchah in the Beis Hamikdash during the Yom Tov of Sukkos

    $21.95

    Dear Children, Many years ago, when the Beis Hamikdash was standing, there was a great celebration in Yerushalayim. It was called the simchas beis hasho’evah. The joy then was so great that Chazal teach us that anyone who did not see the simchas beis hasho’evah – never saw true joy in his life! Perhaps you want to reply that today there are also simchas beis hasho’evah celebrations in almost every shul, and you’ve participated in many such events…But truth be told, the simcha that we have today is not the same – it’s only a commemoration of the real simchas beis hasho’evah, which took place in the Beis Hamikdash and from which people drew purity and ruach hakodesh, and were uplifted for the entire year! Halevai, we should merit to see that wondrous simchas beis hasho’evah even once! Halevai we should merit it speedily in our days, in the third Beis Hamikdash that will come down from the Heavens in fire! But in the meantime, let us try to imagine how the simchah would look, and how preparations for the entire Yom Tov of Sukkos would take place in Yerushalayim, if the Beis Hamikdash were standing today… This book can help a little bit to illustrate this wonderful scene, to try and help us feel a bit of the atmosphere of the true, tangible simchah that was apparent in every corner of the holy city. Perhaps, if we truly understand the magnitude of the loss, we will know how to daven properly before our Father in Heaven to return the Beis Hamikdash and the Holy City to us, speedily in our days. And who knows? Perhaps this year, we will merit celebrating Sukkos in the newly rebuilt Beis Hamikdash!!! Learn More

    $19.00

    The bestselling author who explained and illuminated some of the most cryptic topics in Tanach - now provides us with a guide to an event we read about every year, yet is misunderstood and misinterpreted by so many.

    Megillas Rus - read in shul on Shavuos, the yahrzeit of her descendant, Dovid Hamelech. Who was this righteous convert, and how did she merit becoming the wife of the Shofet Yisroel and the matriarch of the Davidic dynasty, culminating in Melech HaMoshiach? What motivated this Moavite princess to marry a Jew, and to follow her mother-in-law to Eretz Yisroel? How do we understand the plan arranged by her mother-in-law, which seemed doomed to fail from the start? What lessons can we gain from her life and legacy?

    For decades, students and educators alike have turned to Rabbi Gershon Weiss' works in an effort to understand the story of Shimshon, as well as other episodes in Tanach and Jewish history, including the Holocaust. In Matriarch of King Dovid's Dynasty, Rabbi Weiss, esteemed rav, prolific writer, as well as Menahel Ruchani of Staten Island Yeshivah takes us through the entirety of the Megillah, with an extensive, enlightening commentary. Drawing upon numerous meforshim, the book provides readers with the means to emerge from this enigmatic part of Tanach with a lucid understanding of the events and their significance.

    In addition to his exhaustive work on the story of Rus, in this book Rabbi Weiss also focuses on her great-grandson Dovid Hamelech and the challenges he faced throughout his life, drawing a parallel between his unique strengths and those of his forebear, Rus.

    Matriarch of King Dovid's Dynasty is a critical tool, a must-have, for all those wishing to gain a thorough understanding of the Megillah and its significance.

    Based on Shiurim by Rav Gershon Weiss Adapted and compiled by Rabbi Eliezer Delman and Rabbi Rafael Lachman Learn More
