  2. Perfectly Imperfect, Breaking Out of the Ordinary and Striving for Greatness

    Perfectly Imperfect, Breaking Out of the Ordinary and Striving for Greatness

    $18.00

    The Alter of Novardok teaches that there are two different types of people, the 'chochom' and the 'talmid chochom'. The 'chochom' sees himself as already wise and virtuous. He doesn't want to put in efforts to improve. He may live a life of superficial goodness, but he is stuck where he is, and thus eventually sinks deeper and deeper.

    The 'talmid chochom', on the other hand, sees himself as a student. He recognizes that he does not know everything, and that he does not do everything right. Paradoxically, it is the acceptance of his imperfection that gives him the ability to learn from his mistakes and, slowly, perfect himself.

    Are you a student of wisdom? If so, this book is for you.

    In it, we join master educator Ari Goldwag on his journey from superficial 'nice-ness' to true goodness.

    In it, we find the inspiration to accept ourselves - and change. We are, after all, (perfectly) imperfect.

    About the Author:

    Rabbi Ari Goldwag spent his formative years studying in the Yeshiva of Far Rockaway and developing his path in the world of Personal Growth and mussar under the guidance of Rabbi Yechiel Perr, the Rosh Yeshiva. He continued his studies in Yeshivas Mir in Jerusalem. R' Ari has since become a prolific writer and lecturer on a variety of Torah subjects. Hundreds of students follow and download his "Parsha Podcast" and other classes each week. He uses his Torah ideas alongside the music that he is well known for. His five solo albums have been bestsellers and his popular song, "Am Echad," has become a classic, alongside his Shabbos song, "Kah Ribon." He also writes and produces music for other artists (including Benny Friedman's hit "Yesh Tikvah"). He lives with his wife Talia and their five children in Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel. Learn More

  3. Think Good And It Will Be Good

    Think Good And It Will Be Good

    $19.00

    Are you feeling Depressed or Anxious?

    Think "Good" and Search for More Meaning in Your Life.

    Amidst the horrors of Auschwitz, a daring Jewish psychiatrist revealed one of the two secrets to overcoming depression and anxiety. Viktor Frankl, the founder of Logotherapy (the therapy of meaning) found that "those who knew that there was a task waiting for them to fulfill were most apt to survive the concentration camps."

    Frankl was not just referring to those interned in the camps or held captive as prisoners of war. He was offering a path forward for all people facing challenges -- whether physical or emotional -- to look beyond the limits of self and into the world of meaning and spirituality.

    Over 150 years earlier, the Tzemach Tzemach, the venerable leader of the Chabad Hasidic movement, shared the other secret for achieving happiness and emotional well being when he said, "Think Good and It Will Be Good.” This spiritual and psychological principle has the power to transform feelings of sadness or worry, freeing your mind to focus on the goodness inherent in people and situations

    In Think Good It Will Be Good you'll learn how the insights of Frankl and Hasidic thought form the basis of Torah Psychology, a spiritually-focused therapy that can help you find meaning, think positively, and inspire optimism in your life.

    Accolades for Think Good It Will Be Good

    ​ "Think Good And It Will Be Good is a treasure trove of cognitive, emotional - and most importantly - spiritual, strategies for attaining equanimity and happiness. Rabbi Schonbuch offers a depth of psychological and spiritual wisdom in an easy-to-read and easy-to-grasp style. Although anyone who reads the book will benefit from its practical and inspirational content, those who routinely struggle with depressed or anxious feelings will find particular relief and solace within its pages. Highly recommended!"

    ​ Sarah Chana Radcliffe, M. Ed., C. Psych., psychologist and author of "Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice," "The Fear Fix," and "Make Yourself at Home."

    "This is a short book long on substance. Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch gracefully brings together the worlds of Torah and psychology, offering helpful insights into some of the most serious mental health issues. He mobilizes the power of the spirit, deftly convincing those wrestling with serious matters that they can overcome, that with relatively straightforward attitude shifts they can right the ship. A most empowering, helpful, and inspirational volume."

    Rabbi Dr. Reuven P. Bulka, Editor Journal of Judaism and Psychology, author of numerous books on Viktor Frankl including Work, Love, Suffering, Death: A Jewish/Psychological Perspective Through Logotherapy, The Quest for Ultimate Meaning: Principles and Applications of Logotherapy, and editor of Applying Logotherapy.

  4. A Bridge Called Prayer

    A Bridge Called Prayer

    $28.50

    Each day a Jew arrives at the Bridge Called Prayer. He consciously decides whether or not to connect each blessing and challenge to the Almighty.

    A Bridge Called Prayer offers insight and practical tools in these critical areas of spiritual growth. The aim of this sefer is to inspire the reader to design and construct his own Bridge Called Prayer through…

    Fascinating explanations and insights from classic and contemporary sources.

    "The Six Constant Mitzvos," or "Shesh Mitzvos Temidios," refer to six unique commandments:

    Anochi Hashem - belief in G-d;

    Lo Yihyeh - there shall be no other gods;

    Yichud Hashem - belief in the Oneness and Unity of Hashem;

    Ahavas Hashem - love of Hashem;

    Empowerment! Become The Person You Want To Be

    $21.00

    Dave was lost in the forest. He simply didn't know how to read the map. The trees all looked alike to him and no matter how many times he tried finding his way out, he just ended up back in the same spot - having walked in circles. He was terrified of having to spend the night in the forest.

    Suddenly, to his great relief, another hiker came along. This person showed him how to read the map and which markers to look out for. The hiker moved on but this little bit of help made all the difference. He now knew what to look for and how to follow the trail. Before long, he found himself out of the forest.

  8. Go To Yourself

    Go To Yourself

    $19.00

    Deep down, we all sense that finding meaning and fulfillment depends on finding ourselves. But how can we do this?

    • Go to Yourself is based on Rabbi Israel Salanter’s unique approach to creating personal transformation, which includes three concepts: Awareness, Control and Transformation.

    Awareness (hergesh) means to gain self-knowledge and insight into oneself.

    • Control (kevishah) comes next. It refers to taking conscious control over our inner negative influences.

    • Transformation (tikkun) occurs when the ‘deceptive self’ (yetzer hara) is transformed to follow the wishes of the true, good, inner self – in beautiful harmony.

    Finally, Rav Israel’s transformative teachings are available to the English-speaking public. Go to Yourself enables each of us to find ourselves – and find happiness. Learn More

  9. What Chabad Really Believes

    What Chabad Really Believes

    $24.95

    Beginning with the evolution of Chassidic mysticism—commencing with the Baal Shem Tov—the book’s narrative is ultimately drawn to the climactic nature of our present era. Penned as an encounter between two friends, Danni and Jay, the manuscript is interlaced with their animated interaction. This occurs as Danni, the more observant of the two, shares Chassidic insights with his disenfranchised friend, Jay, during a flight to Poland on an education Jewish Federation mission. When Danni speaks out in Treblinka, it causes an inner shift in Jay, leaving him spiritually inspired and motivated. Yet, at the same time he grows increasingly perturbed over his seemingly insurmountable religious predicament. Danni eases Jay’s distress through the teachings of Chassidus as it relates to our particular age and to each individual.

    In Jay’s character the author attempts to address the prevalent state of affairs within the broader Jewish community—the untold number of religiously challenged, due to a lack of Jewish education. How many Jays are out there?

    The “creative literary” style of this book is designed to convey the core principles of Chassidic philosophy in a most palpable, user friendly fashion. Learn More
