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

    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

    Haggadah: Night of Emunah, Stories and insights on the Haggadah

    $22.95

    Prepare for a journey...

    Out of servitude...

    Into emunah...

    This is the night.

    Pesach is called the holiday of emunah, of faith. As we sit at our Seder table speaking of the wonders and miracles of the Exodus, we ignite a flame of emunah that will burn brightly throughout the year. Rabbi Binyomin Pruzansky is a brilliant storyteller, and in this unusual Haggadah he uses that talent to bring the story of Yetziyas Mitzrayim into our stories - our lives, challenges, hopes and accomplishments. And, especially, into our emunah.

    In addition to fascinating Torah insights, Rabbi Pruzansky offers story after story that highlights the emunah of the Jews, both famous personalities and simple people with rock-solid faith. He shares "kriyas Yam Suf" stories - when a person feels there is no way to go forward and Hashem miraculously brings him to where he wants to be. We will find emunah in a dangerous Arab village and on Brooklyn's Ocean Parkway. In the Soviet army and a luxury Pesach hotel. In traffic jams and basketball courts. We will explore the faith of our ancestors in Egypt, and the faith of people just like us. We will hear great stories -- and we will find ourselves strengthened.

    Haggadah shel Pesach: Night of Emunah pulsates with the energy of faith and hope; perfect for the holiday of emunah -- and just what we need to make our Seder table vibrant and meaningful on this night of renewed faith and trust. Learn More

  6. The Exodus You Almost Passed Over

    The Exodus You Almost Passed Over

    $23.75

    The book that will change your seder forever.

    Is there an Exodus story that we almost passed over?

    Every year we read the story of the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt. It seems like something we already know. But do we?

    Questions haunt the careful reader. Among them: Doesn’t the name “Passover” seem a bit strange? Why not just call it Freedom Day, or Independence Day? And did the Exodus have to be so complicated? Couldn’t an All-Powerful deity have teleported the Israelites out of Egypt and spared everyone the arduous process of the Ten Plagues? Then there’s the uncomfortable parts of the Exodus: Why, exactly, did God have to harden Pharaoh’s heart? Was that really fair?

    In this book, Rabbi Fohrman invites us to look at the Exodus story with fresh eyes – to join him, as it were, on a guided adventure, a close reading of the ancient Biblical text. In so doing, Rabbi Fohrman reveals a side of the Exodus story that illuminates not just our past, but our future, and tells not only of our freedom, but of our destiny. This book will uncover secrets that lay hidden in this ancient and sacred saga; it tells the tale of the Exodus you thought you knew. Learn More

  8. The Reb Moshe Haggadah, Comments,rulings and minhagim of Reb Moshe Feinstein

    The Reb Moshe Haggadah, Comments,rulings and minhagim of Reb Moshe Feinstein

    $23.75

    The Reb Moshe Haggadah beautifully captures the many facets of the gaon and posek hador: his brilliance in piskei halachah and Gemara; his insights and deep understanding of Torah hashkafah; his incredible diligence and his extraordinary compassion.

    Much of the commentary is taken from Reb Moshe's prolific writings on halachah, Chumash, and Talmud. Stories about Reb Moshe from dozens of other sources paint an inspiring and breathtaking portrait of a caring and empathetic leader who had a profound understanding and endless love for the Jews he led for so many decades.

    When we read about the "Four Sons" we will hear Reb Moshe share his teachings on chinuch, child-rearing and Torah education. From a Shabbos HaGadol lecture given by Reb Moshe in 1922, we listen to him compare the merciless Communist regime where he lived to Pharaoh's Egypt. From the Ten Plagues Reb Moshe offers us a new understanding of the power of free choice; from the Splitting of the Sea he points out a vital lesson in strengthening our faith.

    We are taught that the voices of the great Torah scholars are not stilled even after their passing, and in these pages we can clearly hear the voice of the beloved Torah leader, HaGaon Reb Moshe Feinstein zt"l. Learn More

  9. Megillas Esther: The Answer Is...Over 900 Answers to Almost 300 Questions

    Megillas Esther: The Answer Is...Over 900 Answers to Almost 300 Questions

    $23.75

    Prepare to understand the Purim story on an entirely new level!

    There is so much to discover in the story of Esther and Mordechai and Haman's genocidal plot against the Jews. For centuries commentators have pored over the words of Megillas Esther, creating a rich treasury of explanation. Megillas Esther: The Answer Is... draws upon these commentaries, helping us uncover the depth of meaning in the Megillah's words, and giving us a unique perspective on the world-changing events taking place in Shushan.

    In Megillas Esther: The Answer Is... we read the words of the Megillah together with the Alshich, Maharal, Vilna Gaon, Chassidic masters, Rav Chaim Kanievsky, and dozens more -over seventy commentaries, from Talmudic times and through today.

    Why did Vashti refuse to appear during the party? What really lay behind Bigsan and Seresh's attempt to assassinate the king? What was the significance of Achashverosh's signet ring? Why did Mordechai refuse to bow, thus endangering his people? Why did Haman turn to Esther for clemency? Important questions, all of these, and the commentators' many answers give us a new understanding of the Purim story.

    One of the most vital themes of Megillas Esther is the idea of hashgachah pratis, Divine Providence. In addition to the questions and answers, Megillas Esther: The Answer Is... features a unique look at "Divine Providence in Motion," in which we get to peek "backstage" at how G-d quietly intervened in Shushan's complex world to ensure Jewish survival and victory.

    Wondering how to make your Purim even more meaningful? Here's a quick answer: Read through the questions and answers of Megillas Esther: The Answer Is... and begin to truly comprehend the greatness of Purim's hidden miracles. Learn More

  10. Forever in Awe, The Essence and Lessons of the Jewish Year

    Forever in Awe, The Essence and Lessons of the Jewish Year

    $23.75

    How much thought do we give to the essence of an upcoming Yom Tov? Many of us get so caught up in the preparations that we are left with precious little energy to delve into its true meaning and significance.

    The dates of our Yamim Tovim and the Jewish months of the year are determined by the waxing and waning of the moon. Our personalities and character traits are shaped, to a degree, by the mazal of the month under which we were born. By exercising our power of choice in a positive manner, as in walking in the ways of Torah, we can actually circumvent our lackluster mazal. It is up to each of us to strive to rise above our tendencies that could be bogging us down and preventing us from maximizing our potential.

    The timeless stories and essays contained within these pages will shine into your heart and soul and inspire you to strive to grow as you follow the rhythm of the entire year! Learn More
