  1. My Last Year in Mitzrayim, A Jewish Boy’s Ancient Diary

    My Last Year in Mitzrayim, A Jewish Boy’s Ancient Diary

    $18.00

    This is the most incredible year in the history of the world. 
    And you are there.

    Well, not quite. But as you read the "diary" of Amiasaf, a Jewish boy living in Mitzrayim, you will feel like you're with him, and with all Bnei Yisrael.

    You'll cry with Amiasaf, as his brutal Egyptian master torments him. You'll laugh, as Amiasaf's younger brother is forced by Egyptian thugs to drink the water of the Nile that has turned into blood, and instead the little Jewish slave gets cool, clear water. You'll travel to a yeshivah of Levi'im in Goshen and walk with lions and bears during the plague of arov. Most important of all, you'll learn the secret of how Bnei Yisrael held on to their belief that they would be freed from slavery, no matter how dark things looked.

    You've heard the story of Yetziyas Mitzrayim so many times. Now you can really feel it!

    Author Chaim Greenbaum is the bestselling author of novels like The Will, Fingerprint and The Mexico File. In My Last Year in Mitzrayim, he shows he can write amazing and exciting books for younger readers too! Learn More

  4. Purim: Removing The Mask

    Purim: Removing The Mask

    $18.00

    Of all the masks we may encounter over the course of Purim, the most intriguing is the one worn by Purim itself…

    On the one hand, Purim commemorates and celebrates the miracle that Hashem performed for the Jewish People at the time. In this retrospective sense, it "faces backwards."

    On the other hand, however, it also "faces forwards" in the sense that it provides a vision toward the future. It contains many messages that reveal extremely profound concepts and fundamental truths…the festival of Purim is a time when these ideas can be encountered, accessed, and absorbed anew.

    Ultimately, these two different "directions" do not conflict with each other, for the day of Purim is not just a historical event; it is an ongoing presence in the Jewish calendar and in its national experience.

    Behind the feasting and merriment which accompany the day of Purim lie some of the most profound and meaningful ideas of Judaism. Drawing on a fascinating array of sources, renowned teacher and author Rabbi Immanuel Bernstein (author of the bestselling Teshuva, Aggadah, and Darkness to Destiny Haggadah) guides the reader on an eye-opening journey towards a deeper appreciation of the Jewish people's most colorful festival.

    Approbations:

    "It is known that the festival of Purim is both concealed and exalted, its laws and customs are hidden and mystifying. In this unique sefer, the author explains the essence of the day as well as the avodah which accompanies it."

    Harav Osher Weiss

    "I thank you for this major contribution to the appreciation of Purim… I urge everyone to make use of this tool to enhance the Purim Day."

    Harav Yisroel Reisman

    About the Author:

    Rabbi Immanuel Bernstein was born and raised in London, learned in Yeshivas Ateres Israel in Jerusalem, and received his rabbinic ordination from Rabbi Chaim Walkin.

  10. The Alshich Haggadah

    The Alshich Haggadah

    $19.00

    The Alshich did not write a specific commentary on the Haggadah; however, in his vast body of writings, he explains many of its ideas and themes. In this adaptation, we study the Haggadah as the Alshich understood it. Utilizing his unique method of asking stimulating questions on which he focuses his commentary, the Alshich combines the classic teachings of the Sages with his own insights and often presents a truly original approach to the questions posed.

    Questions such as: how can we integrate the hidden message of the order of the Seder into our daily living? Why does the Seder experience begin with an invitation to strangers to join us at our meal? What is the thread that connects all the questions of the Four Sons? Why does the Haggadah place such emphasis on Rabbi Yehudah's three-word acronym of the Ten Plagues? These are a small sample of the queries and comments addressed in this fascinating commentary.

    More works have been written on the Haggadah than almost any other book in Torah literature — and rightly so. Every Seder is enriched by the presence of commentary after commentary, insight after insight, interpretation after interpretation. With the publication of this edition, English readers who have difficulty with scholarly Hebrew commentaries can see for themselves why the Alshich is considered one of the greatest of Torah expositors and why his commentary ranks amongst the seventy authentic ways to understand Torah. The Alshich's multi-faceted commentary provides thought-provoking questions and comments, together with novel insights and answers, in ample measure.

    Who was the Alshich?

    Rabbi Moshe Alshich (1508-1600), reverently referred to as HaAlshich HaKadosh (the Holy Alshich), was a dayan on the Tzefas Beis Din (Rabbinical Court) of Rabbi Yosef Caro, author of the Shulchan Aruch. He was also an early mentor of the Kabbalist Rabbi Chaim Vital. Although the Alshich wrote many halachic responsa, he is most noted for his Tanach commentary, based primarily on his regular Shabbos sermons. This monumental work has been hailed by more than four centuries of Torah scholars as one of the greatest expositions ever written on Scripture. In it, he expounds on complicated passages, answering fundamental questions of faith and Jewish belief. The Alshich uses his creative insight and his encyclopedic knowledge of Tanach, Talmud and Midrash to weave together his profound interpretations of Tanach. Studying Torah, Nevi’im and Kesuvim, by the bright light of the Alshich’s commentary will warm the heart and illuminate the mind of every reader, from the nascent newcomer to the advanced talmid chacham. No less a personage than the Arizal, who would attend the Alshich’s Shabbos derashos, described the Alshich’s commentary as possessing אַחַת מִׁשִבְעִים פָּנִים בַּתּוֹרָה , one of just seventy authentic ways to understand Torah — a rare accolade indeed.

    From the Approbations

    Rabbi Avie Gold has masterfully selected and translated the Alshich’s illuminating interpretations and deep insights of the verses in the Torah that refer to yetzias Mitzrayim and the Seder night. These have been written in a lucid, pleasing English and will undoubtedly augment and enhance the readers’ concept and understanding of the Haggadah, thus enriching the Seder and Pesach experience overall.

    —Dayan Menachem Gelley, Rosh London Beis Din / Rav of Beis Hamedrash Ohr Chodosh

    Studying the Haggadah as interpreted by the Alshich will shed new light on its lessons, and will illustrate how the holy words of Chazal have their foundations in the verses of Tanach, and will reveal the depth, beauty, and power of our traditions…This will undoubtedly enhance the English readers’ understanding of the miracles of the Exodus …

    —Rav Shmuel Kamenetsky Rosh Yeshiva, Talmudical Yeshiva of Philadelphia

    This work will be a vital aid to those to whom the Hebrew text is not an option. It will also aid those who can read the original, but to whom English is not their mother tongue, and it will help clarify and make the words of the Alshich even more alive and understandable.

    —Rabbi Zev Leff, Rav of Moshav Matityahu

    Rabbi Avie Gold has skillfully translated and presented the commentary of Rabbi Alshich to our English-speaking generation in this book. He has done so with faithfulness to the text and clarity and insight in its translation. This Haggadah is therefore worthy of being on one’s Seder table, and its profound insights should provide for great discussion and intellectual stimulation on the holy night of Pesach.

    —Rabbi Berel Wein, Historian, author, and international lecturer Learn More
