  2. Tech Talk, Real people take an honest look at how technology affects their lives

    Tech Talk, Real people take an honest look at how technology affects their lives




     When I think back to my childhood, I remember my mother standing by the kitchen counter making supper with the phone cradled in her neck. She was talking to her friends, relatives, and answering tzedakah calls. Other than those times that she was on the phone, she was available for me. I wonder what my kids think of their childhood...How do they look at me? I know that I am on my cell phone a lot. Is it the same thing?


     About ten years ago, when I saw someone emailing during chazaras hashatz in shul, I couldn't get over the concept of him sitting there-like, are you texting G-d?? And I think back to that every so often as I text during davening. I know I'm not as vigilant as I should be these days. I don't have any good justification here; it's just too easy when you hear that ping to look down and then fall into the habit...

    Hash tags and apps and emojis and social media: the world of 2018.

    Whether we like it or not, technology is here to stay. But that doesn't mean our free choice is gone and that we must go with the flow of the technology-obsessed world around us. We can take a stand, have a long, hard look at technology and at what it does to us, and then decide for ourselves whether or not we will submit to the lure of the smartphone and all that comes along with it.

    In TechTalk, that's exactly what Malka, Sarit, Mina, Zahava, Rochel, and Mordechai did.

    These six brave souls kept a running journal of their use of technology and their thoughts and feelings about it, over the course of a year-and were astounded at their discoveries through their journeys. No, they weren't throwing out their phones or cutting themselves off from society at the end of the "experiment" yet each of them, being honest, thinking individuals, found tremendous room for growth as they explored their inner world via these journals.

    You, too, can gain much inspiration and food for thought from their candidness. For all those seeking an honest take on the affect of technology in our lives-TechTalk is a true must-read!

  3. Praying With Fire Teens, Igniting the Power of Your Tefillah - A 5-Minute Lesson-A-Day

    Praying With Fire Teens, Igniting the Power of Your Tefillah - A 5-Minute Lesson-A-Day


    When the going gets tough, the tough... start praying.

    • I'm just an ordinary person. Why should Hashem listen to my prayers?
    • Why do prayers sometimes go unanswered?
    • How can I "face time" with Hashem?
    • How should I pray? When should I pray? And most important - why should I pray?

    Let's face it: Life isn't always simple, even (especially?) for teens. But whatever is going on in your life - problems at school, challenges at home, complications with friends, or just an "I-woke-up-feeling-horrible" day - Hashem has given us a no-fail way to deal. It's called tefillah, prayer.

    With its short, relatable daily readings, stories to illustrate every point, and brief summaries at the end of each reading, Praying With Fire for Teens shows teenagers (their parents, too!) how to pray effectively, with focus, concentration, and optimism, so that we get the most out of the fantastic gift Hashem has given us - the gift of prayer.

    Forty Days, Inspiring Daily Lessons in Teshuvah, Tefillah, & Tzedakah


    Would you like to feel more prepared for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur? Would you like to connect more?

    This year, with this book, allow yourself to be deeply inspired. Forty Days is a unique dose of inspiration and learning for the month of Elul until Yom Kippur. In this sefer, we visit the three critical topics of Teshuvah, Tefillah & Tzedaka, and with daily concise lessons, rediscover them in an enlightened and inspiring way.

    Key questions will be answered, such as why doesn't our teshuva last forever? How we can learn to concentrate intensely while praying? Is there a special time we can pray for certain things and get them? Can we "persuade" Hashem to fulfill our wishes? How to generate merits of chessedthat keep multiplying and benefiting us even after we leave this world? And much, much more.

    Based on the three classical works of our sages in these areas, this is a vital sefer for every Jewish home.

  7. LifeLines #2

    LifeLines #2


    Life. It's infinitely interesting.

    People live such fascinating lives. Their struggles, their triumphs and failures, make for absorbing and inspiring reading. And as we learn about other people's lives - we learn to understand our own better. No wonder that LifeLines is one of the most popular columns in Jewish periodicals, the one many readers turn to first.

    The first collection of LifeLines stories in book form were enjoyed by many thousands of eager and interested readers. Now, in LifeLines 2, author C. Saphir shares with us still more real stories of real people, with an important bonus feature - detailed "Postscripts" that bring us updates on the narrators’ lives.

    In LifeLines 2, we’ll meet the mother of two hearing-impaired children, traveling with her on her journey to acceptance. In the Postscript, we will jump ahead several years and share her new challenge, as she learns to give her now-teenaged children the space to grow despite their disability. WeÂ’ll hear the story of the girl who was determined to shake off her Chassidic heritage, yet who finds the perfect spouse in a Chassidic young man. The narrative is fascinating, and the Postscript, in which she details how she joined her husband's community and yet maintained her own unique identity, adds another riveting level to the story.

    The medical student who discovered Torah through a popular TV series. The father of a child who's left the Torah world, the woman who ends a lifetime battle with obesity through gastric surgery, the boy with undiagnosed Asperger's who taught himself how to communicate: we will meet these people, and many more like them, people who have won their battles and surmounted their challenges. We will meet them - and we will grow from hearing their stories. Learn More
