  1. Why Bad Things Don't Happen to Good People, Finding Light in the Darkness

    Why Bad Things Don't Happen to Good People, Finding Light in the Darkness

    $14.50

    Why Bad Things Don't Happen to Good People addresses one of the most frequently asked questions of all time. After the passing of his wife at a very young age, leaving him with four children under the age of nine, Rabbi Shaul Rosenblatt spent years finding the balance between his overwhelming pain of loss and his concurrent appreciation that everything God does is for the best. Why would an all-loving 'good' God do something seemingly so 'bad' to him and his young children? The answer is that He didn't.

    With this premise, Why Bad Things Don't Happen to Good People expertly tackles the most challenging topic of all time. With a light and sometimes humorous style, and through sharing his own personal story of loss and recovery, Rabbi Rosenblatt provides an answer to the almost unanswerable question. He will challenge your conceptions as he delivers a remarkable and powerful argument that in fact, bad things simply don't happen to good people!

    Why Bad things Don't Happen to Good People is a must-have in every Jewish home!

  2. The New Normal

    The New Normal

    $21.00

    As the daughter of a Rebbe, the wife of a Rebbe, and a respected teacher of Torah herself, Rebbetzin Feige Twerski has been inspiring and uplifting Jewish women around the world for decades – and transmitting the eternal and Divine truths of our ancient tradition.

    In this fascinating and unique book, she tackles what is perhaps our greatest challenge: the new world, and the “new normal.”

    It isn’t only technology that has changed: with remarkable speed, the world’s values have radically changed. What was considered absolutely wrong only a generation ago is now…. glorified. How do we combat these destructive outside influences? How do we remain positive – and strong?

    In this inspiring and practical book, Rebbetzin Twerksi shows us the way.

    “My very inspired and talented Rebbetzin began writing articles that resonated with women across the world and thus attained global recognition. She was invited to speak all over America and Europe, and her articles morphed into two popular books published by ArtScroll’s Mesorah division. Predictably, I was now being introduced as … Rebbetzin Feige’s husband… But… no one need feel sorry for me. The reason for that is that the Twerski family mantra, from the cradle onward, was, “Work hard at being the very best ‘you’ who you can be, because that’s all that matters. Hashem does not mark on the curve.” We were raised on the story of our illustrious forbearer, Reb Zisha of Anapolie, zt”l, who told his chassidim that he was not afraid if, after his earthly sojourn, Hashem would ask him, “Zisha, why weren’t you as great as Moshe Rabbeinu, or Rabbi Akiva, or the Baal Shem Tov?” He felt confident that he could defend himself adequately against those questions. Reb Zisha said that what he feared most was Hashem saying to him, “Zisha, why weren’t you Zisha?” …

    At the core of my Rebbetzin’s work is the conviction that every individual, regardless of gender, has an inner integrity that is holy, pure, capable, and effective, and that is accessible in every avenue of life to enable us to enjoy life to the fullest. Her conclusion in this regard is that this end can only be attained by our determination to be ourselves. I encourage everyone who peruses this very wise, down-to-earth, practical, and insightful collection … to deeply breathe in that which it has to offer. It will, beyond a doubt, enrich your life and the lives of your loved ones in ways that will enable you to cope effectively with the contemporary challenges of The New Normal.”

    From the Introduction by Rav Michel Twerski, shlita

    Rebbetzin Feige Twerski is the mother of eleven children and many grandchildren whose number she refuses to divulge. Alongside her husband, Rabbi Michel Twerski, shlita, she serves as Rebbetzin to her community in Milwaukee and counsels people all over the globe. The Rebbetzin is a popular lecturer, speaking on a wide variety of topics to audiences in America and overseas. She is the author of Ask Rebbetzin Feige and Rebbetzin Feige Responds (both published by Artscroll). Learn More

  3. Dancing in Our Hearts, Serve Hashem with Joy

    Dancing in Our Hearts, Serve Hashem with Joy

    $17.50

    Who doesn’t want to be happy?

    In Dancing in Our Hearts, Rabbi Michoel Fletcher helps us find happiness as we live our lives as Jews. By taking us on a journey through the year and examining our tefillos through fresh eyes, he allows us to experience the joy in our relationship with Hashem and our performance of mitzvos.

    This simchah, he explains, is contagious. By feeling happier ourselves, we will make our homes, our communities, and the entire Jewish nation full of simchah as well.

    It’s just a small leap and a jump…and soon we’ll be dancing in our hearts, even as we continue our day-to-day routines.

    “This will be a valuable addition to the library of English-speaking Jewry and serve to guide them in their daily lives…”

    —Rabbi Shraga Feivel Zimmerman, Rav of Gateshead, England

    “[Rabbi Fletcher’s] most recent work…describes many ways of feeling uplifted, happy, and proud with our lives as Jews. The book’s core message should cause us all to really dance.”

    —Rabbi Yosef Rubinstein, Rosh Yeshivas Ohr Yehoshua Nesivos HaTorah,

    Teshuvah Through Recovery, Experience the transformative power of the twelve steps

    $19.00

    Confused.

    Desperate.

    Trapped, with no way out.

    HEAR THE VOICES OF THOSE MOST VULNERABLE: Those addicted to alcohol, drugs, gambling, exposure to inappropriate material, and other destructive plagues of our times. Promising yeshivah bachurim, kollel yungeleit—no group is immune to the devastation of these dangers. Spouses and parents watch helplessly as their loved ones sink into pain and despair.

    In this eye-opening book on teshuvah and recovery, renowned author and psychiatrist Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski offers his wise insights into the psychological and spiritual aspects of addiction and the benefits of joining a twelve-step program. Included are inspiring personal accounts of those who have descended to the lowest recesses, yet emerged triumphant from the depths of darkness.

    Addressing the common questions addicts—and their families—ask, Rabbi Twerski challenges our thought processes and debunks the myths about addiction in the frum community. He tackles such topics as why this scourge is so widespread today, why the Twelve Steps are effective in addressing this problem, and where to turn for those desperately needed answers.

    Teshuvah through Recovery is a book that no suffering person or family should be without.

  5. Unfolding Potential, A Jewish Journey Of Self-Development

    Unfolding Potential, A Jewish Journey Of Self-Development

    $9.50

    What is potential? How does it begin?

    Most importantly, how do we fulfill our potential?

    Unlike a skill that needs to be learned, potential already lies within each of us. It is waiting to be brought to the forefront. Thankfully, we are not directionless in this most central of life's challenges. Judaism (and each of the holidays, in particular) offers us some of the greatest guidance possible on how to 'actualize' ourselves.

    In this crucial task, we do not focus on what we have done. We focus on who we are meant to become.

    Jonah S.C. Muskat-Brown (M.SW) masterfully helps each of us unlock our potential to be happy, fulfilled, and connected. Learn More

    Interpersonal relationships? Well, we try our best. Sometimes.

    We all want to be righteous, upstanding Jews, observing G-d's Torah, fulfilling His commandments.

In this groundbreaking work, To Be a Mentch, Rabbi Yitzchak Shkop shows us the vital importance of the laws of interpersonal relationships.

    How to make, and keep, resolutions that are sustainable and effective

    The vast importance of a step at a time

    How to give the benefit of the doubt

    How to maintain integrity in business, for both employer and employee

  8. The Confused World of Modern Atheism

    The Confused World of Modern Atheism

    $23.75

    Is atheism more rational than monotheism?

    Atheists claim so, but this fascinating, original, and well-researched mas-terpiece proves otherwise. Find out why much of what is said about G-d is simply … nonsense.

    “… an uncommonly literate, trenchant, and entertaining volume. Rabbi Averick has done a stellar job researching the field…it is difficult not to be amused by what happens to these implausible arguments under Averick’s penetrating scrutiny and excoriating analysis… [this] is an important Jewish work. It should be of signal utility to rabbis, kiruv professionals, and Torah Jews who seek to relate to issues of emunah with greater depth and clarity… It is by far one of the best things I have read in a very long time.”

    Rabbi Michel Twerski, Milwaukee, Wis.

    “It is the obligation of every Jew to attain absolute certainty as to the Ikarei Emunah (fundamentals of Jewish belief) to the best of his ability… I would strongly recommend that every English-speaking ben Torah find the time to read the book and be sure — as never before — of there being no logical alternative to the Ikarei Emunah.”

    Rabbi Yitzchak Berkovits, Rosh Kollel, Jerusalem Kollel

    “An important book which pulls the rug out from under atheistic philosophies and will strengthen every reader’s belief in the Creator.”

    Rabbi Aharon Feldman, Rosh Hayeshiva, Ner Yisroel, Baltimore, Md.

    “Very persuasive, often amusing, and rich in ready-to-rumble argument and insight.”

    Michael Medved, Syndicated talk-radio show host & best-selling author

    “A compelling read…”

    Dr. Edward Peltzer, Senior Research Specialist, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute

    “… effectively dismantles the atheists’ assertions that science can provide satisfactory materialistic answers.”

    Dr. Richard Weikart,Professor, California State University Learn More

  10. Edges of Truth, Perspectives on Life - Based on the Writings of the Sfas Emes

    Edges of Truth, Perspectives on Life - Based on the Writings of the Sfas Emes

    $21.00

    Rav Moshe Chaim Luzzatto, the Ramchal, was among our nation's greatest thinkers and kabbalists. Yet, as great as he was, he felt duty bound to write Mesillas Yesharim, a (relatively) simple work that stresses the basic character requirements needed for improving one's Divine service. Why? While all principles of Torah are very important, that which helps us change and brings us closer to what G-d wants of us, is most important.

    Similarly, although the Sfas Emes al HaTorah is famously full of novel ideas, Kabbalah, and enlightening interpretations, its main objective is not simply intellectual. The ideas are meant to help us acquire the traits necessary to make one's service to Hashem complete and whole. Therefore, everyday issues such as bitachon, praying, Torah study, Grace after Meals, reward and punishment, exile and redemption, and more are addressed - and explained with appealing, deeper dimensions of understanding.

    Those who learn the Sfas Emes can't help but be spellbound by the magnificent ideas of its author, Rav Yehuda Aryeh Leib Alter, the second Gerrer Rebbe.

    With Edges of Truth, we can integrate these amazing concepts into our daily lives. Learn More
