  2. No one knows what goes on behind closed doors.

    Every individual is a closed door; while we can observe a person’s exterior, we have no entry into their mind.

    In recent years, the topic of mental health has become more widely discussed in open forums, but still retains a taboo-like nature. Though publications on the range of issues have certainly increased, it is still uncommon to come across a first-hand account from a sufferer. How much more so in the frum world, where there is yet greater reluctance to discuss these issues openly.

    Depressed is an open and honest personal account by Yehonatan Palmer of what it is like to suffer from depression as a frum man. This is a raw account by the author, who honestly felt the need to share his story with a wider audience to help others suffering from depression, for them to know they are not alone. At the same time, this insider’s account will help those looking in to understand this debilitating — yet common — illness. Learn More

  8. The World That Was: Eretz Yisrael - The Holy Land As The Nexus Of Jewish Identity
    With scrupulous attention to historical accuracy, profound understanding of Torah hashkafah, and its magnificent collection of photographs, charts and illustrations, The World That Was Eretz Yisrael is the latest addition to The World That Was series. These volumes have been hailed worldwide for offering readers a fascinating, Torah-oriented perspective on the history of the Jewish communities in various countries. Now, once again, the author meticulously presents the richly layered account of seminal events in the history of the holy, beloved land of Eretz Yisrael, the heart of the Jewish People.

    Promised to our ancestors, Eretz Yisrael was the Jewish homeland for over 1,000 years. In this exceedingly long exile of close to two millennia, it has remained our hope, our dream, the destination of our hearts’ desire, the place we turn to in our prayers.

    Volume One of The World That Was: Eretz Yisrael explores its history from the aftermath of the First Temple to the beginning of the Twentieth Century. And what an incredible history: The turbulent Second Temple era, the momentous redacting of the Mishnah, the saintly Tannaim and Amoraim, the Moslem, Crusader, and Ottoman conquests, the writing of the Zohar and, later, the Shulchan Aruch. And of course, the various aliyah movements, from the students of the Baal Shem Tov, Vilna Gaon and Chasam Sofer, to the survivors of the Holocaust. All of them were courageous Jews who followed their hearts’ passionate call and came to build what was then a desolate, dangerous land. With uncompromising commitment and love, they triumphed over unimaginable challenges to build Yerushalayim’s Old Yishuv and develop the rest of the Land.

    The World That Was: Eretz Yisrael is the riveting story of the unbreakable bond between Hashem, His People, and His beautiful, Holy Land. Learn More
