To Seek His PresenceJoseph Haddad
Do you seek a more intimate relationship with your Creator? Prayer and the Beit Hamikdash are parallel paths in Jewish tradition. Prayer is known for its ability to bring greater awareness of G-d’s presence into our lives—and greater awareness that He is the true source of happiness and fulfillment. Not nearly as appreciated, however, is the power of the Beit Hamikdash and its mitzvot to provide the same close relationship with G-d. This masterful volume explores new avenues to a deeper understanding of prayer, as well as refreshing, original ideas regarding the re-institution of the Beit Hamikdash and its attendant service, leaving you inspired to reach out and connect with the Borei Olam.

Elucidated Tomer DevorahShmuel Meir Riachi
Learning Compassion through Hashem's 13 Attributes of Mercy -- Stories, Explanations, and Practical Examples that Illuminate the First Chapter of Rabbi Moshe Cordevero's Classic Work. Rabbi Moshe Cordovero’s Tomer Devorah is a 16th century Torah classic, and its fundamental first chapter demonstrates how heaven and earth dynamically and positively influence one another whenever we exhibit compassion as we emulate each of the Creator’s Thirteen Attributes of Mercy. The ELUCIDATED TOMER DEVORAH provides a brilliant commentary to this essential first chapter, elaborating upon the difference between each of these 13 distinct aspects of compassion. Through real-life examples, illuminating stories and insights from rabbinic sages, the author develops a practical blueprint for truly optimizing interpersonal relationships. The text concludes with an essay of profound significance. Entitled “Olam Katan” (The human being is a microcosm of the universe), it discusses how the entire universe operates in response to man’s deeds, which in turn, wield a great influence over everything that transpires in heaven and on earth. Written in a language and style that makes these lofty concepts engaging, accessible, and meaningful to all readers, the ELUCIDATED TOMER DEVORAH will alter and elevate the way you live and look at life.
Even If I’m NotDevorie Kreiman
The Greatest Loss. The Way Forward. A Mother's Story. My first words as a mother were, "Don’t drop him.” It was as if I knew, even before I held my first child, that I wouldn’t be able to hold onto my children. We were the family who lost half our children; over a ten-year period, four of our eight children died, as infants, from a rare mitochondrial disorder. After the babies died, I was sure that nothing terrible could happen to us ever again. Not to us. Then, Yossi, our oldest child and only son, drowned six weeks before his wedding day. As a child, Yossi loved playing with words. Once, when he was getting ready for school, I said to him, "There are bagels on the counter if you’re hungry.” He said, "Even if I’m not.” "What?” "The bagels are on the counter even if I’m not hungry.” After Yossi died, I grappled with long-held beliefs: Hashem is close; everything that happens has a purpose; and our neshamot continue to exist after we leave This World. The comfort of these truths was there for me, if I was ready to accept it, but also—as I learned—"even if I’m not”… At first, I couldn’t find my way forward. I felt like Hashem was saying, I’m asking you to do something impossible. Do it anyway. Even If I’m Not is the story of doing the impossible.

Hashem: An Introduction to the CreatorRabbi Avi Okin
When Hashem took the Jewish People out of Egypt, it was the beginning of an unprecedented relationship. By understanding how to maximize this closeness with the Divine, we can serve Him with happiness, love, and awe, and enjoy our intimacy with our Creator. Based on almost five hundred sources from the Tanach, Chazal, classical mefarshim, and other Torah personalities, this beautiful sefer explores fundamental concepts in Judaism and how to use them to connect with Hashem. Intended for those who are not yet observant, those who have been practicing for many years, and everyone in between—this meaningful work will uplift, inspire, and bring Hashem closer to all who seek Him. “So many well-meaning Jews are lacking in a real and palpable relationship with Hashem. Rabbi Okin’s new sefer seeks to begin to reopen the portals of that real and bona fide relationship with the Creator.” Rav Shimon Isaacson, Rosh Yeshiva, Yeshivat Sha’arei Mevaseret Tzion
Hashgachah Pratis - Divine Providence Hashgachah Pratis: Hashem's knowledge and guidance of the world. It is hard to imagine a subject that is more central to our purpose in life. Through the centuries, the greats of our nation have participated in the classic hashkafic machlokes of the Rambam, Ramban and other Rishonim; deliberating, debating the issues, and developing solutions, all in an attempt to clarify the wide-ranging subject of hashgachah pratis. What is Divine providence? Who is subject to individual Divine providence, and who is governed on a general level? What does "generalized Divine providence" mean, when related to an All-knowing, All-powerful G-d? In these pages Rabbi Aryeh Leibowitz delves into the meaning of hashgachah pratis, its position in Jewish thought, and its relevance to our lives today as Torah Jews. Rabbi Leibowitz presents a wealth of classic sources, many of which are translated here for the first time. Expounding on the opinions and insights of the early Rishonim, and drawing from writings of the Maharal, Ramchal, Vilna Gaon, and Rav Tzakok, among others, Hashgachah Pratis trains our eyes to the horizon, to the ultimate goal where knowledge becomes conviction, and conviction becomes faith.
