  1. Living Emunah #3, Achieving A Life of Serenity Through Faith

    Living Emunah #3, Achieving A Life of Serenity Through Faith

    $24.75

    Emunah.

    Believe it. Live it. Feel it!

    Strengthening emunah, our faith in Hashem, in His Providence, in His infinite goodness, enriches and even transforms our lives. Emunah replaces anxiety with optimism, and grants us serenity in place of fear. With more than 100,000 copies in print, the Living Emunah series has become the premier resource for those - and there are so, so many of us - who have embarked on the wonderful journey to emunah.

    And what a journey it is! Filled with healing, comfort, and the knowledge that Hashem is with us everywhere - in the traffic jam, the hospital unit, the boardroom and the bank. Emunah accompanies us in the hard times, a faithful friend who reminds us that we are never alone, never abandoned, a soothing voice that tells us not to lose hope.

    Living Emunah 3 continues to guide us on this marvelous and rewarding path. With stories and with the wisdom of the Sages, each brief and absorbing segment melds the classic Torah understanding of faith with our day-to-day encounters. It reinforces and deepens our understanding of HashemÂ’s love for us in all times and situations.

    When we transform our relationship to Hashem through emunah, we transform our relationships to others as well. Jealousy, anger, and frustration have no place in a world of emunah. As our love for Hashem grows stronger so, too, does our love for others (yes, including our love for ourselves!).

    Not everyone, says Rabbi David Ashear, author of the Living Emunah books, can be a gadol ha'dor, a great Torah sage. But anyone can become a "gadol b'emunah," a giant in faith and trust.

    Like the earlier books in the series, Living Emunah 3 gives us the tools, the inspiration, and the understanding we need for the journey to emunah.

    Have a wonderful trip!

  3. Living Simchah, Finding the joy in everything

    Living Simchah, Finding the joy in everything

    $24.75

    Life is boring / frustrating / painful / disappointing (pick one)

    It doesn't have to be.

    I'll be happy if I get a new car / better job / great shidduch (pick one)

    Not necessarily.

    So where, then, can I find the simchah, the joy in learning, in mitzvahs and in life?

    It's easier than you think. Just pick up this book and start learning how to live simchah!

    Rabbi Hadar Margolin is a man on a mission - and that mission is to bring more simchah into our lives. As we see in Living Simchah, simchah is much more than a fleeting emotion. It's a powerful force, a way of life mandated by the Torah itself.

    Living Simchah offers us step-by-step guidance to help us infuse all of our actions with simchah. In these short, readable segments, we will learn what simchah really is (and what it isn't). What the benefits are of living a life of simchah. How to deal with the "down days." Why simchah is a choice - and a mitzvah - and why Hashem wants us to live that way.

    These brief segments contain so much: Torah hashkafah, quotations from classic works of Mussar, Chassidic writings, and Jewish thought, true-life stories, practical advice and, yes, jokes and quips to keep us smiling as we journey to true simchah.

  4. 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

    Illuminations of the Maggid, Stories that will enlighten your heart and spark your soul

    $24.75

    Rabbi Paysach Krohn is today's successor of the great maggidim of Europe and Israel. Historically, the maggid was a talmid chacham, an orator, an observer of his society, and he would often travel from town to town and even country to country, speaking to communities. The best were charismatic, magnetic speakers, who could deliver an important, meaningful message in an appealing manner. People would enjoy the presentation, but that was the sugar coating for the inner message that inspire them to improve themselves.

    That describes Rabbi Krohn perfectly. He is an enormously popular and sought-after speaker and lecturer. He has the uncanny ability to combine personal verve, warmth, and enthusiasm, as he uplifts audiences with an incredibly broad range of captivating and inspiring stories about famous and unknown people.

    His appearances fill halls and arenas throughout the world. And that adds spice to this marvelous book, because wherever Rabbi Krohn goes - North America, Israel, Europe, Australia -- people tell him stories. In this captivating volume he presents us with the best of those countless stories, in his inimitable, infectious style.

    But this American Maggid is much more than a storyteller. He hears a story and delves beneath its surface to perceives its lesson. What kernel of truth is buried in the narrative? How does it relate to us and what can it teach us? He mines everyday life for these eternal truths and shares them with us.

    Yes - the Maggid is back and we readers are the winners. So let's read, think, smile, shed an occasional tear, and come away a happier, better people. Learn More

  10. Let There Be Rain, A lesson a day on making Gratitude a part of our lives

    Let There Be Rain, A lesson a day on making Gratitude a part of our lives

    $24.75

    When Hashem created the world, He would not send the rains until there was a person on this earth who would appreciate this gift and and be grateful for it. Adam prayed for rain. It fell. Trees and vegetation grew. And Adam thanked Hashem. It was necessary, as soon as man was created, to teach him the lesson of gratitude — because gratitude makes all the difference between a life that is happy and fulfilling, and one that is sad and bitter.

    In his three decades of teaching, his pioneering work in founding and directing Ohr Naavah, and his lectures heard around the globe, Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein has met, spoken with, and counseled thousands of men and women. He heard their stories, discussed their challenges, and helped them find solutions to their problems.

    And he realized that the root of many of our problems, both personal and societal, come from one root cause — a lack of hakaras hatov, of gratitude. Being grateful for our blessings, for favors bestowed on us by others or by Hashem, stands at the core of all relationships; indeed, hakaras hatov is the core of Creation itself. Gratitude enables us to see the world with warm and loving eyes, to keep our relationships with family and friends fresh and vibrant, to serve Hashem with sincere joy. And lack of gratitude? It leads to bitterness, anger, conflict and unhappiness.

    Let There Be Rain, by Rabbi Wallerstein with bestselling author Rabbi Shimon Finkelman, combines Torah wisdom with marvelous stories to show us how to incorporate hakaras hatov into our thoughts, hearts and actions. It offers a daily reading that includes an informative Torah insight and an inspiring story to illustrate the concept.

    Over the past decade, tens of thousands of Jews incorporated daily study of shemiras halashon into their days; they refined their speech and changed their lives. Now we are offered still another transformative opportunity: to make hakaras hatov the cornerstone of our lives, and to make those lives rich with meaning and happiness.

    So open Let There Be Rain and make it part of your day. You’ll be thankful you did. Learn More
