    Gems from the Nesivos Shalom: Pirkei Avos

    $27.50

    Nesivos Sholom. One of the most widely celebrated volumes on Jewish thought in recent history.

    The magnum opus of Reb Sholom Noach Berezovsky ztz”l, saintly Rebbe of a vibrant chassidic dynasty, the impact of the Nesivos Sholom extends well beyond the tight-knit enclave of Slonimer adherents. Since its publication in the latter half of the twentieth century, Nesivos Sholom has become a standard text in the study-halls and homes of Torah Jews from one end of the spectrum to the other.

    For the first time ever, this modern-day classic is now accessible in the English language. With the release of this volume – focusing on the messages and lessons of Pirkei Avos – the English-speaking public can discover what it is about Nesivos Sholom that has captured the hearts and minds of Jewish seekers worldwide.

    Is it the crisp, engaging treatment of such a wide range of relevant topics? The masterful blend of chassidic thought and scholarly analysis, mystical concepts and illustrative narratives, penetrating insight and inspirational messages? Or is it simply the pristine beauty that emanates from the sacred words of an individual referred to by some as the "Mesillas Yesharim of our generation”?

    For the accomplished scholar or the earnest layman; the educator or the parent; anyone – young or old – seeking to advance their Torah knowledge and connection with the Creator – this volume has a wealth to offer. With Hashem’s help, these teachings of the Nesivos Sholom will greatly enhance your life. Learn More

    60 Essays Based on the Teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson

    In this volume, the reader will find the Rebbe’s ideas on freedom of choice, divine providence, absolute and relative truth, good and evil, love, ego and the nature of the physical reality. Here one will find the Rebbe addressing the paradoxes of the human condition, the tensions engendered by polar pulls upon our lives by communality and individuality, elitism and equality, personal growth and productivity, selfhood and the yen for transcendence. Here one will find the Rebbe’s perspective on education, marriage, language, property, business, food and crime. Here one will find the Rebbe’s views on “religious” issues such as What defines a Jew?, dogmatism and human creativity in Torah, religion and state, the function of the mitzvah, reward and retribution, Moshiach and the World to Come. In a word, these sixty essays present the reader with a broad cross-section of the Rebbe’s unique vision of life through the lens of Torah. Learn More

    Maharal On Pirkei Avos

    The Maharal of Prague’s stature grows and grows. His seminal ideas have been a springboard for many of the major currents of mussar, chassidus, and Torah thought. In recent years there have been major new annotated editions of his major works. In this significant new work, Rabbi Tuviah Basser introduces us to Maharal’s classic commentary to Pirkei Avos/Ethics of the Fathers.

    Avos and Maharal -- a unique and thought provoking combination. This slim tractate is the primer whose very name proclaims that ethics and conduct are an integral part of the Torah and the tradition handed down from generation to generation. Maharal’s depth and brilliance provides the philosophical underpinnings of these ethical demands. Jews know that there can be no division between “ritual” and personal conduct. With his incredible breadth and profundity, Maharal shows how all parts of the Torah are a seamless whole.

    Rabbi Basser uses Derech Chaim, Maharal’s commentary to Avos, as his basic text. Combing the commentary and extracting its basic themes, he gives us a beautifully written work that clarifies complex ideas and opens a window into the thought-world of one of Judaism’s greatest figures of the last five hundred years.

    This is a book that can be read on many levels. It is an exceptional commentary to Pirkei Avos, it is an introduction to Maharal, and it is a stimulating excursion into the Torah’s demands on the ethical individual. However the reader sees it, it is an important and enlightening work that should not be missed. Learn More

    Visions Of The Fathers

    Ethics of the Fathers/Pirkei Avos and Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski M.D. go together naturally. The book is the Talmud’s repository of advice and guidance. Its lessons have been the foundation of Jewish character and personality, of morality and ethics. It is the road map toward happiness, fulfillment, and personal growth.

    Rabbi Dr. Twerski is unique. An original. He has helped over 40,000 people in his long and colorful career. As chassidic scholar he offers the spirituality and rich lode of stories that elevate, enlighten, and entertain. As a psychiatrist and nationally renowned expert in substance abuse, he offers uncanny insights into the inner needs of people. And he has the rare knack of presenting his ideas and comments in a clear, lucid, witty manner that is a delight to read.

    In this wonderful book, Rabbi Dr. Twerski focuses on what the Sages say to us in our daily lives. In his hands, the lofty ideas of the Sages are brought down to earth without watering down their essential nature. We turn the pages, stop and think, and realize that Ethics of the Fathers is as relevant today as it was when it was first written.

    He illustrates his thoughts beautifully with anecdotes from his own experience and from the rich archives of chassidic lore. The stories add zest and pleasure to the book and make it a pleasure to read.

    Enjoyable reading, provocative ideas, enticing stories, sound insights, acute observations; it’s all here in the inimitable Twerski manner.
