  1. The Wisdom of Wealth, Torah Values Regarding Money

    The Wisdom of Wealth, Torah Values Regarding Money

    $19.00

    The Torah contains many laws regarding money, including both positive and negative commandments (dos and don'ts). Still, many money-related topics are not directly codified. For example:

    How do we balance trust in G-d with earning a livelihood?

    Is financial self-sufficiency a Torah goal?

    How should we approach financial planning (including investing and retirement planning)?

    How much should we be spending, really? Is it appropriate to spend on luxuries? What if others will be jealous?

    How does wealth impact our character?

    The Torah has a great deal to teach regarding money and wealth. Drawing from classic sources, The Wisdom of Wealth is fascinating, encyclopedic, and eminently readable. Finally, Torah wisdom in this crucial area of our daily lives is accessible to all.

  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. 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

    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.

    Please be advised that this book contains sensitive material. Learn More

  7. Emunah: A Refresher Course, A Practical Guide to Divine Providence

    Emunah: A Refresher Course, A Practical Guide to Divine Providence

    $19.00

    The Torah has been transmitted to us with extreme care and precision. The Rambam believed in it and passed it on. The Vilna Gaon believed in it and passed it on. Our grandparents believed in it and passed it on. This is called kabbalas Avos - and it alone is enough to trust and live by our mesorah.

    Still, substantiating emunah with one's own thinking (known as emunas ha-seichel) offers huge advantages. It provides excitement — a passion and an enthusiasm that make the emunah alive and vibrant. It helps tailor our Torah lives to our individual minds and souls. It helps make Yiddishkeit real.

    No magical “leap of faith” is necessary in order to believe. All we need is clear-thinking - as demonstrated in this incredible book. In this ‘refresher course’ to emunah, we will re-discover why we believe, and will be able to doven and learn with ever-increasing levels of emunah and connection to Hashem.

    About the Author:

    Rabbi Dovid Sapirman is a former talmid of the Philadelphia, Ponivez, and Lakewood Yeshivos. During his forty-three years in the field of chinuch, he has been a, melamed, magid shiur, mashgiach ruchani, public speaker, and worked extensively in kiruv rechokim and kiruv k’rovim.

    With nearly four decades of experience focusing on reinforcing core emunah, he founded the Ani Ma’amin Foundation in 2009. It is dedicated to offering chizuk inemunah to Bnei Torah of all ages and backgrounds. In only a few years, the foundation has held presentations for over 40,000 people around the world, and created three popular series of CD’s on inyanei emunah. Rabbi Sapirman lives in Toronto, Canada, with his family. Learn More

    Warmed by the Fire of the Aish Kodesh, Torah from the Hilulas of Reb Kalonymus Kalman Shapira of Piaseczna

    $19.00

    Rav Kalonymus Kalman Shapira Hy"d was the rebbe of Piaseczna, Poland, before the war and remained with the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto until 1943. His teachings, including the sefer Aish Kodesh (Holy Fire) , written in the Ghetto, have been crucial in the revival of the Jewish people's interconnection with Hashem before, during, and after the war, until today. His educational guidance and Torah have inspired thousands to abandon a superficial approach to Yiddishkeit and deepen their connection with Hashem using the full spectrum of their emotional and intellectual faculties.

    Because of this influence, Rav Moshe Weinberger chose to name a newly established shul in Woodmere, New York, after the Rebbe's sefer Aish Kodesh and instituted an annual hilula on the Rebbe's yahrtzeit, attended by approximately 1,000 Jews of all types and ages from throughout the tri-state area. This sefer consists of the Torah taught by Rav Weinberger at these annual hilula gatherings. Learn More

  10. How Free Will Works, The Blueprints to Take Charge of Your Life, Health, and Happiness

    How Free Will Works, The Blueprints to Take Charge of Your Life, Health, and Happiness

    $19.00

    Drawn from classic sources, How Free Will Works explores the elegant relationship between Divine providence and free will — and illuminates the connections among themes such as: miracles, mazal, happiness, cause and effect, Heavenly decree, nature, success, tikun, self-esteem, destiny, teshuvah, prayer, mental illness, anxiety, mitzvos, emunah and bitachon, suffering, fear, pleasure, anger, and will power.

    How Free Will Works sheds fascinating light on the cosmic network of interlacing forces that operate in creation — such as Divine providence, mazal, and prayer — and reveals the power and parameters assigned to each.

    More valuable still, this groundbreaking achievement explains how free will intersects with, and impacts on, these forces — which give us the practical and near-magical ability to maximize opportunities,sidestep unnecessary hardship and heartache, and transform our emotional, spiritual, and physical health.

    As the dazzling design and sweeping influence of free will emerges, we move in a world that offers us a different experience. and it will become increasingly difficult — if not inconceivable — for us to ignore the one truth that will become so patently obvious: we control the quality of our lives.

    Approbation:

    This book addresses the topic of free will in a very clear manner . .. and based on Chazal, Dr. Lieberman offers practical skills and strategies to help us to grow and realize our full potential . ... We live in trying times, and a book such as this helps us to appreciate the tools that HaKodesh Baruch Hu gave us with which to meet these challenges.

    -HaRav Shmuel Kamenetsky, shlit'a
