A Treasury of Chassidic Tales on the Festivals
A Treasury of Chassidic Tales on the Festivals A collection of inspirational chassidic stories, this book represents a slice of the priceless pre-Holocaust heritage of the vanished communities of Eastern Europe -- a breath of Jewish soul. Hundreds of tales, all the great masters, the grandeur of the great chassidic courts, the inner pride of the humble shtetl, miracle workers and conquerors of self -- all are here in Rabbi Zevin’s masterpiece. Never before has the English reader had access to chassidic lore as seen through the eyes of a genuine Torah giant. To Rabbi Zevin, chassidim was not a curiosity or a historical relic; it was both vibrant and intellectual -- and it was a way of life which he lived, not merely observed. Its Hebrew edition, Sippurei Chassidim, is probably the most popular work of its kind, and has gone through many printings. Now -- finally -- this consummate blend of warmth, wisdom, inspiration, history, and Torah interpretation is available in English. See also: Treasury of Chassidic Tales on the Torah By Rabbi S. Y. Zevin. Artscroll, hardcover, 542 pages

By The Light Of The FireRabbi Moshe Weinberger
Our world feels so full of upheaval. Everything seems to be changing more and more quickly. Externally, we feel beset by darkness and surrounded by a long, cold winter. Will spring ever come? The teachings in this book are drawn from shiurim of Rav Moshe Weinberger. In them, Rav Weinberger shows how to use the light of the Chanukah menorah to look deep inside other people, ourselves, the events around us, and the world itself to fuel our journey to a revealed relationship with our loving Father above. This book includes teachings broken up for each of the eight nights of Chanukah, for Shabbat Chanukah, The Order of Lighting the Chanukah Lights and a number of tefillot to say after lighting the candles. May the teachings in this book illuminate our eyes with the inner light of the Chanukah candles.
Chanukah What is Chanukah? To the devout, it is the spiritual glow of the menorah and its flames. To the child, it is dreidels, coins and gifts. To the modern man it is a festival of freedom. But what is Chanukah--really? When did it happen? How long did it take to subdue Antiochus and his army? Does it celebrate a genuine military victory? What is the spiritual significance? Who were the Maccabees? What are the prayers, laws and rituals of Chanukah? No other book on Chanukah has ever succeeded so well in weaving together so many of the festival's threads to form a tapestry of beauty and richness. This is the book for anyone who wants the answer to the question, "What is Chanukah?"

In Every Generation: Haggadah
In Every Generation: Haggadah At last, a Haggadah that not only asks contemporary questions, but answers them as well--clearly, articulately and with pride! Rabbi Moshe Grylak has a deep sensitivity to the questioning mindset of modern times, and he applies the timeless principles of the Haggadah to our own experience as individuals and as a nation. The author raises inter generational themes for discussion on themes such as the "Chosen People" concept, the concept of Birkat Hamazon as a golden key to contending with hardships in daily life, and what we can learn from the clash between Pharaoh and Moshe Rabeinu. It is clearly written yet deep in its explanation of key concepts.
Inspiring Lights The light of Jewish wisdom, and of an authentic Jewish world view, shines on Chanukah, perhaps, as on no other holiday. The holiday of Chanukah was born out of a clash between two civilizations and two fundamentally different ways of looking at man, at life, and indeed all of reality: This was the essential clash between the Greeks and the Jews; the military clash was secondary. In exploring the messages that lie at the heart of Chanukah, we discover immutable messages that lie at the core of Judaism. Chanukah is the celebration of a vision so lofty and a dedication so deep, that it guaranteed that the Jewish nation, and the Jewish message, would endure - and shine - for all time. Inspiring Lights is a collection of essays from a wide range of educators and writers, each offering another perspective on the timeless messages contained in Chanukah. Some of the themes explored in this precious book are: Chanukah and the Mystical Light of Creation The Unique Relationship of the Jewish Woman to Chanukah Chanukah Echoes in the Garden of Eden The Essence of Jewish Leadership Where Jewish Thought and Greek Thought Part Ways and much more. Whether this is your fifth Chanukah, or your fiftieth, in these pages you will certainly find not only fresh insight and inspiration for your Chanukah celebration, but for all of Jewish life. Featuring Writings From: Shimon Apisdorf, Yaakov Astor, Harvey Belovski, Emuna Braverman, Dan Butler, Lawrence Kelemen, Doron Kornbluth, Boruch Leff, Menachem Leibtag, Naomi Lobl, Lori Palatnik, Holly Pavlov, Eliyahu Safran, Shlomo Slatkin, Hanoch Teller, Pinchas Winston Artscroll, paperback, 182 pages
Kol Dodi on Megillas EstherRabbi David Feinstein
A halachic authority sheds light on the Megillah and brings logic and clarity to its sometimes obscure narrative. “Write my story for all generations,” Queen Esther said to the sages of her time. Why? Because the Book of Esther -- the Megillah -- is a source book for the future. It marked a new awareness that would cast beams of light into the darkness of Jewish exile and powerlessness, for the Megillah proved that the hand of the Creator is active even when it is invisible. Seas did not split and mountains did not quake when Esther and Mordechai confronted the first decree of genocide, but the strands of “coincidence” blended into such a powerful life rope that only the blind could fail to see the will of the Weaver at work. In this work, one of the premier halachic authorities of our generation teaches the Megillah. With the authoritative knowledge and innovative mind honed by a lifetime of scholarship, he sheds light on the Megillah and brings logic and clarity to its sometimes obscure narrative. Deceptively simple yet compellingly profound, Kol Dodi on Megillas Esther will stand out as a classic of the genre. Artscroll, hardcover, 153 pages
