by Molly Katz

When Molly Katz married a Gentile, she never expected him to master words like schmatta and schlemiel, but she also didn't realize how different Jews are from the people who aren't. Real Jewish has nothing to do with Yiddish, but is instead full of complex twists and somersaults on everyday speech, of unexpected nuances, hidden meanings, and swampy thickets of behavior.

Wide Awake by David Levithan

In the not-too-impossible-to-imagine future, a gay Jewish man has been elected president of the United States. Until the governor of one state decides that some election results in his state are invalid, awarding crucial votes to the other candidate, and his fellow party member. Thus is the inspiration for couple Jimmy and Duncan to lend their support to their candidate by deciding to take part in the rallies and protests. Along the way comes an exploration of their relationship, their politics, and their country, and sometimes, as they learn, it's more about the journey than it is about reaching the destination.

WTF? Work (PB)
Our Price: $9.95
Whose voice's heard in media & whose's silenced?  Who's part of national debate & who's left out?  News media's one of most powerful forces in America - shaping our opinions, setting debate & informing how we view our communities & world.  Yet few of us have access to it or know how to use it. Israel-Palestine in a Nutshell is, in fact, two books in one.

One side explains the genesis of Israel "in a nutshell" beginning with Israel's ancient biblical history, following the Jews through decades of anti-Semitism and their return to their homeland in the 19th century. The book outlines Israel's struggle to maintain and expand its territory while protecting its citizens from belligerent terrorist organizations within and across its borders. Israel in a Nutshell also navigates through the myriad Middle East peace proposals and ends with a description of Israel's government (including the creation of the Kadima Party and a biography of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert).

Palestine in a Nutshell begins in the same historical period as its Israeli counterpart but concentrates on the rise of Islam and the Ottoman period. This section focuses on the plight of the Palestinian refugees after the "catastrophe" of 1948, the rise of the PLO, the development and politicization of Hamas and terrorism. It concludes by exploring the Palestinian perspective on controversial issues including refugees, and Jerusalem (Al-Quds).

This collection makes it clear that in its more than 4,000year history, Judaism has had an astonishing breadth in its perceptions on every aspect of our sexual lives.

Since becoming president, George W Bush has walked away from Kyoto Protocol, pushed for oil drilling in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, weakened protections for endangered pieces & wilderness & retreated from his campaign pledge to regulate carbon dioxide. But president's agenda reaches deeper than these well known policies. In Bush vs Environment, Robert S Devine shows how White House is quietly undermining entire system of environmental safeguards that has developed over past 30 years. Administration's tactics include:

Encouraging lawsuits against federal government that challenge existing environmental laws & then feebly defending cases in court.
Ignoring scientific evidence that doesn't support President Bush's goals & pressuring government scientists to product results Administration wants.
Using fuzzy math to overestimate costs & underestimate benefits of regulations that protect human health & environment, which can lead to eliminate of much needed rules.
Rowing Lesson by Anne Landsman.

On the surface, The Rowing Lesson tells the life story of Harold Klein, a Jewish physician who made his life and living in a Boer community in rural South Africa, now lying comatose on his deathbed. Beneath -- as the metaphorical oars of his daughter Betsy's thoughts dip in and stir the waters of his experience -- is something much more complex. Over the course of several days' vigil by his silent side, Betsy's mind races across vignettes of family events that she's reconstructed from his stories, her memory, and her imagination, gliding ever closer to understanding this irascible man she has come to adore.

The Essential Scoop on Raising Modern Jewish Kids

by Sharon Duke Estroff

How do you help your child choose between mandatory baseball practice and Hebrew school? How can you plan a birthday party (not to mention bar or bat mitzvah party!) for your child without sacrificing your values, sanity, and pocketbook? How can you keep peace on the homework home front? And how do you deal with Santa envy–let alone the entire month of December?
Irena Sendler was born into a Catholic family in Poland in 1910. Throughout the German occupation in World War II, Irena worked tirelessly to help save Polands Jews from the Nazi horror. Irena saved at least 2,500 Jewish children from certain death during the Holocaust. By the time of her death in 2008, Irena had been honored by the governments of Poland and Israel, Pope John Paul II, and many of those she had rescued.

by Mirjam Pressler (Author)
As a child, Elias Chacour lived in a small Palestinian village in Galilee. The townspeople were proud of their ancient Christian heritage and lived at peace with their Jewish neighbors. But in 1948 and '49 their idyllic lifestyle was swept away as tens of thousands of Palestinians were killed and nearly one million were forced into refugee camps. An exile in his native land, Elias began a years-long struggle with his love for the Jewish people and the world's misunderstanding of his own people, the Palestinians. How was he to respond? He found his answer in the simple, haunting words of the Man of Galilee: "Blessed are the peacemakers." In Blood Brothers Chacour blends his riveting life story with historical research to reveal a little-known side of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the birth of modern Israel. He touches on controversial questions such as: What behind-the-scenes politics touched off the turmoil in the Middle East? What does Bible prophecy really have to say? Can bitter enemies ever be reconciled? In a world of tension and terror, this book offers hope and insight that can help each of us learn to live at peace.

How Parental Pressure and Material Advantage Are Creating a Generation of Disconnected and Unhappy Kids

by Madeline Levine.

Madeline Levine has been a practicing psychologist for twenty-five years, but it was only recently that she began to observe a new breed of unhappy teenager. When a bright, personable fifteen-year-old girl, from a loving and financially comfortable family, came into her office with the word empty carved into her left forearm, Levine was startled. This girl and her message seemed to embody a disturbing pattern Levine had been observing. Her teenage patients were bright, socially skilled, and loved by their affluent parents. But behind a veneer of achievement and charm, many of these teens suffered severe emotional problems. What was going on?

Being a Blessing: 54 Ways You Can Help People Living With AIDS

by Harris R. Goldstein
In the spring of 2003, Norman Mailer, who was then eighty years old, invited an improbable companion into his life: Dwayne Raymond, a young writer who was waiting tables at a restaurant in Provincetown, at the tip of Cape Cod, where Mailer spent most of his final years. Raymond became Mailer's aide in all matters professional and private, assisting the Pulitzer Prize–winning author on the four books he published during this time, including his last novel, The Castle in the Forest. As Raymond's responsibilities grew, so too did his closeness to Mailer, who in turn taught him how to navigate his own personal challenges.

In this touching memoir, Dwayne Raymond presents a loving portrait of Norman Mailer in his twilight years, depicting a quirky and complex but achingly human man so unlike the Mailer of disquieting legend. Beautifully written and honestly portrayed, Mornings with Mailer is a personal and revealing story of a great writer, his man Friday, and their unlikely but enduring friendship.
Take chocolate candy, add a family business at war with itself, and stir with an outsiders perspective. This is the recipe for True Confections, the irresistible new novel by Katharine Weber, a writer whose work has won accolades from Iris Murdoch, Madeleine LEngle, Wally Lamb, and Kate Atkinson, to name a few.

Alice Tatnall Ziplinskys marriage into the Ziplinsky family has not been unanimously celebrated. Her greatest ambition is to belong, to feel truly entitled to the heritage she has tried so hard to earn. Which is why Zips Candies is much more to her than just a candy factory, where she has worked for most of her life. In True Confections, Alice has her reasons for telling the multigenerational saga of the family-owned-and-operated candy company, now in crisis.

Nobody is more devoted than Alice to delving into the truth of Zips history, starting with the rags-to-riches story of how Hungarian immigrant Eli Czaplinsky developed his famous candy lines, and how each of his candies, from Little Sammies to Mumbo Jumbos, was inspired by an element in a stolen library copy of Little Black Sambo, from which he taught himself English. Within Alices vivid and persuasive account (is her unreliability a tactic or a condition?) are the stories of a runaway slave from the cacao plantations of Cte dIvoire and the Third Reichs failed plan to establish a colony on Madagascar for European Jews.

Richly informed, deeply moving, and spiked with Webers trademark wit, True Confections is, at its heart, a timeless and universal story of love, betrayal, and chocolate.

Do shiksas really have more fun? A Jewish girl is about to find out in Laurie Graffs wickedly witty novel.

SHIKSA (shĭk'sə)
n. Yiddish
1. A non-Jewish woman. 2. A quintessential blonde beauty. 3. A Jewish boys dream. 4. A Jewish girls nightmare.

Manhattan publicist Aimee Albert knows a good spin, but shes the one who winds up reeling when her gorgeous, goyishe boyfriend breaks up with heron Christmas! Aimee dusts herself off and decides to seek companionship with a member of her own tribe. Theres just one problem: all the shiksas are snapping them up!
So when the very cute, Jewish, and gainfully employed Josh Hirsch catches Aimees eye at a kosher wine tasting and mistakes her for a shiksa, whats a girl to do? Unfortunately, the charade goes on longer than Aimee planned, and her life becomes more complicated than a Bergman film. But Aimee begins to discover that her identity isnt as easily traded as a pair of Jimmy Choos, and she must decide if having the man of her dreams is worth the price of giving up so much of who she is.
Sabrina Orah Mark follows up her critically acclaimed debut, The Babies, winner of the Saturnalia Books Poetry Prize in 2004 chosen by Jane Miller, with a second collection of prose, Tsim Tsum, centered on two characters, Walter B. and Beatrice, first introduced in The Babies. Unbeknownst to them they have come into being under the laws of Tsim Tsum, a Kabbalistic claim that a being cannot become, or come into existence, unless the creator of that being departs from that being. Along their journey they encounter many beguiling characters including The Healer, The Collector, Walter B.'s Extraordinary Cousin, and the Oldest Animal. These figures bewilder and dislodge what is at the heart of the immigrant experience: survival, testimony, and belonging. When marketing exec Sally Mundell suddenly lost her husband, she
channeled her grief into The Packaged Good, a non-profit with the
mission to empower kids to give back.  An inspiration for anyone

As it appears here, and in most of Judaism today, it encompasses the whole of the Hebrew Bible, as well as Talmudic writings. Celebrating one of the world's greatest collections of pure literature, this volume draws from some of the most meaningful texts for today's reader, including selections from The Poems of King David, The Parables of King Solomon and The Love Songs of King Solomon.

Where God Was Born

A Daring Adventure Through the Bible's Greatest Stories

by Bruce Feiler

At a time when America debates its values and the world braces for religious war, Bruce Feiler, author of the New York Times bestsellers Walking the Bible and Abraham, travels ten thousand miles through the heart of the Middle East—Israel, Iraq, and Iran—and examines the question: Is religion tearing us apart ... or can it bring us together?
The American classic about a young girl's coming of age at the turn of the century.

"A profoundly moving novel, and an honest and true one. It cuts right to the heart of life...If you miss A Tree Grows in Brooklyn you will deny yourself a rich experience...It is a poignant and deeply understanding story of childhood and family relationships. The Nolans lived in the Williamsburg slums of Brooklyn from 1902 until 1919...Their daughter Francie and their son Neely knew more than their fair share of the privations and sufferings that are the lot of a great city's poor. Primarily this is Francie's book. She is a superb feat of characterization, an imaginative, alert, resourceful child. And Francie's growing up and beginnings of wisdom are the substance of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn."
New York Times
The author of Savage Inequalities, a New York Times best-seller, and Rachel and Her Children, winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, tells the stories of a handful of children who havethrough the love and support of their families and dedicated community leadersnot yet lost their battle with the perils of life in America's most hopeless, helpless, and dangerous neighborhoods.

A bestselling author despite, or perhaps because of, the disturbing news he brings readers, Kozol--whose Savage Inequalities spent four weeks on the New York Times bestseller list--speaks once again to the conscience of the country. This book offers an unforgettable, moving portrait of the lives of a handful of desperately poor children, living in the South Bronx, who retain their innocence and wonder against all odds.

Since it first declared independence six decades ago, Israel has endured constant threats to its existence. Though the Palestinian conflict continues to hold the world's attention, it is in fact only one of the nation's long-term concerns. Aside from terrorists seeking to destroy it, Israel must contend with tensions between secular and religious Jews, the demographic challenges posed by a quickly growing Arab population, internal political divisions, and disputes over the water sources that are critical to its survival. In the face of these many challenges, the country's future can seem precarious indeed. From Barnes & Noble:
At the end of Shakespeare's Tempest, Prospero renounces his magic and invites the audience to set him with their applause. For Simon Axler, the actor protagonist of Philip Roth's novel, there is no such renunciation and no such applause. His once considerable talents have seeped away and, now in his 60s, he is left without talent or, worse yet, confidence. Once acclaimed, he sinks first into indolence and dejection, then into an erotic adventure that leaves him even further afield. A starling tour de force by a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist.
Scholarly yet highly readable survey covers Old World origins; profiles of New World cultures of German and Eastern European Jews; the effects of changing political and economic climates; the rise of labor movement; and immigrant settlement on the Lower East Side settlement.

The heroic story of Jewish resistance and survival during the second world war

By Allan Levine

As the Second World War and the Nazi assault on Europe ended, some 25,000 Jews, entire families in some instances, walked out of the forests of Eastern Europe. For three years, these men, women and children had miraculously survived, eluding Nazi hunts and Soviet, Polish and Ukrainian partisans who often killed first and asked questions later.
Alive and hiding in South America, the fiendish Nazi Dr. Josef Mengele gathers a group of former colleagues for a horrifying projectthe creation of the Fourth Reich. Barry Kohler, a young investigative journalist, gets wind of the project and informs famed Nazi hunter Ezra Lieberman, but before he can relay the evidence, Kohler is killed.

Thus Ira Levin opens one of the strangest and most masterful novels of his career. Why has Mengele marked a number of harmless aging men for murder? What is the hidden link that binds them? What interest can they possibly hold for their killers:
six former SS men dispatched from South America by the most wanted Nazi still alive, the notorious Angel of Death? One man alone must answer these questions and stop the killingsLieberman, himself aging and thought by some to be losing his grip on reality.

At the heart of The Boys from Brazil lies a frightening contemporary nightmare, chilling and all too possible.
Last Chance for Justice: How Relentless Investigators Uncovered New Evidence Convicting Birmingham Church Bombers HB Talmud with Training Wheels: An Absolute Beginner's Guide Half/Life: Jew-Ish Tales From Almost, Not Quite, and in-Between
On the morning of September 15, 1963, a bomb exploded outside the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, killing four young girls. Thirty-two years later, stymied by a code of silence and an imperfect and often racist legal system, only one person, Robert "Dynamite Bob" Chambliss, had been convicted in the murders, though a wider conspiracy was suspected. With many key witnesses and two suspects already dead, there seemed little hope of bringing anyone else to justice. But in 1995 the FBI and local law enforcement reopened the investigation in secret, led by detective Ben Herren of the Birmingham Police Department and special agent Bill Fleming of the FBI. For over a year, Herren and Fleming analyzed the original FBI files on the bombing and activities of the Ku Klux Klan, then began a search for new evidence. Their first interviewwith Klansman Bobby Frank Cherrybroke open the case, but not in the way they expected. Told by a longtime officer of the Birmingham Police Department, Last Chance for Justice is the inside story of one of the most infamous crimes of the civil rights era. T. K. Thorne follows the ups and downs of the investigation, detailing how Herren and Fleming identified new witnesses and unearthed lost evidence. With tenacity, humor, dedication, and some luck, the pair encountered the worst and best in human nature on their journey to find justice, and perhaps closure, for the citizens of Birmingham.

Talmud is the Jewish "right stuff." It is the ultimate source for Jewish learning -- yet it is an enigmatic source that has its own physics and its own rules of engagement. Talmud with Training Wheels is a new kind of adult learning resource. The introductory volume sets the Talmud in historical, cultural, sociological, and intellectual context. Subsequent volumes each unfold a single Talmudic discussion, wrapping it in additional texts and resources that help students open themselves up to its rich and subtle meanings. Talmud with Training Wheels has two terrific uses. It is a set of tools specifically engineered for adult classes studying Talmud with a knowledgeable teacher. However, it is also a wonderful point of access for individuals who have the patience to work through the text on their own. It divides the "Sea of Talmud" and makes it possible to cross this Sea on dry land.

This first volume of the Talmud with Training Wheels series is a wide-ranging introduction to the Talmud. In a lively and engaging style, it starts telling the story of Talmud by explaining the origins of this literature, which is based on the oral tradition in Judaism. It goes on to explore the "Anatomy of the Talmud Page," clarifying each element found on a page of Talmud. And it provides basic tools for Talmud study, giving learners crucial insights into how this unique literature works. At the back of the volume, readers will find a helpful lexicon of key Talmudic terms. If you've ever wanted to learn about Talmud, or more important, if you've every wanted to learn Talmud, this book is a great way in.
This anthology of 18 essays takes for granted that Jews will intermarry, and that the children of intermarriages will be "halfs," or half-Jews. Being a half, says Snyder, is not second best; it is not a pale imitation of being really Jewish. Rather, "half" is an interesting, incorrigible, perplexing and profound moniker in its own right, a label that somehow captures the existential angst that all people experience. Read cover to cover, the anthology begins to feel suffocating in its predictability-smart folks reflecting smartly about their struggles with identity. But many of the individual essays are engaging, funny and provocative.

In December of 1938, a chemist in a German laboratory made a shocking discovery: When placed next to radioactive material, a Uranium atom split in two. That simple discovery launched a scientific race that spanned 3 continents. In Great Britain and the United States, Soviet spies worked their way into the scientific community; in Norway, a commando force slipped behind enemy lines to attack German heavy-water manufacturing; and deep in the desert, one brilliant group of scientists was hidden away at a remote site at Los Alamos. This is the story of the plotting, the risk-taking, the deceit, and genius that created the world's most formidable weapon. This is the story of the atomic bomb.

A Muslim, a Christian, a Jew-- Three Women Search for Understanding

by Ranya Idliby

A groundbreaking book about Americans searching for faith and mutual respect, The Faith Club weaves the story of three women, their three religions, and their urgent quest to understand one another.

After September 11, Ranya Idliby, an American Muslim of Palestinian descent,faced constant questions about Islam, God, and death from her children, the only Muslims in their classrooms. Inspired by a story about Muhammad, Ranya reached out to two other mothers to write an interfaith children's book that would highlight the connections between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. After just a few meetings, however, the women realized that they themselves needed an honest and open environment where they could admit — and discuss — their concerns, stereotypes, and misunderstandings. After hours of soul-searching about the issues that divided them, Ranya, Suzanne, and Priscilla grew close enough to discover and explore what united them.

Using her "Loved Dog" method incorporating "instinct versus choice" based on her studies of wild wolves,, Tamar helps you build a rich relationship with your dog. They say that the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing us that he doesn't exist. In this book, Yehuda Berg uses the device of an as told to autobiography to explain the concept of The Adversary, which plays a major role in Kabbalistic wisdom. Readers learn that Satan exists within everyone, manifesting as a recurrent little voice of uncertainty and negativity, and that that is how havoc is wreaked throughout the world. By doing the spiritual work that Kabbalah teaches, readers banish doubt and evil influences from their lives and eliminate chaos from the world. Although author Berg takes creative license with the narrative, he presents a truthful representation of Kabbalah's view on the force of evil in the physical universe.

In 1922, he established on the bedrock of international law the right of Jews to emigrate to Palestine. During his meeting with David Ben-Gurion in 1960, Churchill presented the Israeli prime minister with an article he had written about Moses, praising the patriarch. In between these events he fought harder and more effectively for the Jewish people than the world has ever realized.

Narrowly escaping the Nazi sweep in Southern Poland, Jafa Wallach and her husband, Naton, a physician, were able to send their four-year-old daughter to safety (they prayed) while they themselves along with two of Jafa's brothers managed to dig a shallow hole in the ground beneath the cellar of an heroic Polish mechanic's shop. The four adults managed to survive for 22 months in the grave-like space (less than five feet across and about four feet high) with the help of Jozef Zwonarz, the mechanic. He alone knew of their hiding space and he alone had to secretly supply them with whatever food and water he could manage to sneak to them (mainly old potatoes and very small amounts of water). Wallach graphically describes the darkness, the hunger, the insects, and the fear. Since the hole they were in was less than twenty feet from a Gestapo headquarters in their small town in occupied Poland, they had to be especially quiet.

What Is Judaism
Our Price: $19.95
How is Jerry like Socrates? Is Elaine a feminist? What would Aristotle have thought of George? Is Kramer stuck in Kierkegaard's aesthetic stage of life?

Seinfeld was the most popular sitcom of the 1990s--and the most philosophical sitcom of all time. Both praised and damned as a "show about nothing," Seinfeld does indeed have something to tell us about the metaphysics of Nothingness. It also sheds light on other philosophical topics, notably what it takes to live "the moral life."

In Seinfeld and Philosophy, thirteen Seinfeld fans who happen to be professional philosophers examine the ideas, the stories, the jokes, and the characters of Seinfeld. This is a quick, entertaining view of philosophy, whether as a first taste, a refresher course, or a regular stop on one's "eternal return." It's also a treat for the real Seinfeld aficionado, even one with no prior interest in philosophy--not that there's anything wrong with that.

Ted Kennedy HB Extracted: Unmasking Rampant Antisemitism in America's Higher Education Salad Time (HB)
Ted Kennedy HB
Our Price: $19.95
Salad Time (HB)
Our Price: $19.95
Edward Kennedy was a towering figure of the American political landscape for almost half a century. The youngest member of America's most fabled political clan and a leading voice of liberalism, he became one of the most powerful and effective Senators in the nation's history.

Kennedy's rich and sometimes tragic story is told in this book by TIME writers Joe Klein, Richard Lacayo and Karen Tumulty; historian Robert Dallek; former Boston Globe columnist Mike Barnicle; longtime Kennedy-family aide Theodore Sorensen; and Kennedy's close friend and speechwriter Robert Shrum. It's also told through dozens of unforgettable photographs, including many intimate, behind-the-scenes pictures of Kennedy at work, on the campaign trail or relaxing with family and friends.

That story begins with the fierce ambition of Kennedy's father, the wealthy and unstoppable Joseph Kennedy Sr., who believed that one of his sons should become President of the United States. As the youngest of Joe and Rose Kennedy's nine children, Ted wasn't necessarily destined for a political career. But one by one, his older brothers met their fates, until only Ted was left. Joe Jr. died in a combat mission during World War II. Jack reached the White House, only to be assassinated in 1963. Five years later, Robert was shot down during his own campaign for the presidency.

For a time, it seemed inevitable that Ted would also seek the White House, and soon. Then came Chappaquiddick, the tragedy that cost a young woman her life and cast a shadow over Kennedy for the rest of his. When he did make his only bid for the Oval Office, in 1980, it was in a surprising attempt to unseat an incumbent Democrat, Jimmy Carter. Though Kennedy's 1980 campaign did not succeed, it ended in a speech to the Democratic National Convention that sealed his status as liberalism's greatest champion.

The failure of that campaign also freed Kennedy to focus for the rest of his life on the work of the Senate. It was there that he gave enduring substance to the Kennedy family legacy, through legislation that shaped this nation in many areas - education, the economy, civil rights, law enforcement and foreign policy-and especially through his decades-long struggle to extend affordable health care to all Americans. His career culminated in 2008 with his key role in securing the Democratic Party's nomination, and ultimately the presidency, for Barack Obama.

A rich compilation of insightful writing and memorable photographs, Kennedy is an authoritative portrait of a man who was one of the major figures of his time.

Bomb HB
Our Price: $19.99
New York's Lower East Side is the birthplace of everything from organized crime to anarchist movements. In the nineteenth century, an influx of struggling immigrants seeking opportunity met the harsh realities of industrialization. Poverty and squalor fueled a vicious battle for power and political clout. Local historian Eric Ferrara reveals the wicked history of America's most infamous neighborhood, where the abounding graffiti is a testament to the soul and spirit of the slum. In December of 1938, a chemist in a German laboratory made a shocking discovery: When placed next to radioactive material, a Uranium atom split in two. That simple discovery launched a scientific race that spanned 3 continents. In Great Britain and the United States, Soviet spies worked their way into the scientific community; in Norway, a commando force slipped behind enemy lines to attack German heavy-water manufacturing; and deep in the desert, one brilliant group of scientists was hidden away at a remote site at Los Alamos. This is the story of the plotting, the risk-taking, the deceit, and genius that created the world's most formidable weapon. This is the story of the atomic bomb.

Including The Hill We Climb, the stirring poem read at the inauguration of the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden, this collection of the same name reveals an energizing and unforgettable new voice in America poetry. For ages 14 - up. Pre-order your copy now! Americans from all walks of life are still feeling the roller-coaster effects of the Great Recession. For many, home values are still too low and unemployment is still too high. Others have prospered despite the ups and downs. In Clark Howards Living Large for the Long Haul, the renowned broadcaster examines our new paradigm through the eyes of those whose financial portfolios have beaten the odds, and those whose economic situation has gone off course. Through these fascinating personal accounts, readers uncover amazing opportunities and smart decisions, finding advantages in bleak times for lasting payoffs in the long run. The Hebrew word tzedakah is often translated as "charity." But it actually means something different - it means "justice" or "righteousness." According to the Jewish Sages, tzedakah means we have an obligation to give to those in need - not only when we are feeling generous, but on a regular basis. One talmudic Sage, Rabbi Assi, believed the commandment of tzedakah to be so important that he said, "Tzedakah is as important as all other commandments put together". Barbara Diamond Goldin has brought these stories of tzedakah together in the hope that they will inspire the young and the old, the rich and the poor, to give to those in need and to adopt a righteous sensibility and sensitivity akin to the commandment of performing acts of loving-kindness. By performing these mitzvot, we all engage in tikkun olam - repair of the world - and, according to the Sages, each good deed we perform in the physical world creates an angel in the metaphysical world. This book should encourage readers to create their own angels and to recapture the significance of the mitzvah of tzedakah to the Jewish community, even to the world, today.

Every so often a new writer appears who is wiser than her years would suggest, whose flesh-and-blood characters embody more experience than a young writer could know. Sana Krasikov is one of those writers. Her first published story appeared in The New Yorker, her second in the Atlantic Monthly’s fiction issue.

One More Year is her debut collection, illuminating the lives of immigrants from across the terrain of a collapsed Soviet empire—people in search of love and the good life—forging new paths and sometimes retreading old ones. A man abandons Wall Street after eleven years to seek his fortune in his native Moscow, leaving his wife to make sense of this sudden reversal of their lives. A divorcée who boards with an older man finds herself an outsider among her more prosperous immigrant friends. A young wife from Central Asia struggles to break out of a polygamous marriage to a husband she still loves. A widow from Tbilisi, supporting her son from abroad, finds the boy a stranger when he visits her in Yonkers.

by Dara Horn

A Civil War spy page-turner meets an exploration of race and religion in 19th-century America in Horn's enthralling latest. Jacob Rappaport, the 19-year-old scion of a wealthy Jewish import-export family, flees home and enlists in the Union army to avoid an arranged marriage.

When his superiors discover his unique connections, he is sent on espionage missions that reveal an American Jewish population divided by the Mason-Dixon line, but united by business, religious and family ties. After being sent to assassinate his uncle in New Orleans on Passover, Jacob's next assignment proves even more daunting: marry the feisty Confederate spy Eugenia Levy.
The sheets of paper are as brittle as fallen leaves; the faltering handwriting changes from page to page; the words, a faded brown, are almost indecipherable. The pages are filled with recipes. Each is a memory, a fantasy, a hope for the future. Written by undernourished and starving women in the Czechoslovakian ghetto/concentration camp of Terezn (also known as Theresienstadt), the recipes give instructions for making beloved dishes in the rich, robust Czech tradition. Sometimes steps or ingredients are missing, the gaps a painful illustration of the condition and situation in which the authors lived. Reprinting the contents of the original hand-sewn copybook, In Memory's Kitchen: A Legacy from the Women of Terezn is a beautiful memorial to the brave women who defied Hitler by preserving a part of their heritage and a part of themselves. Despite the harsh conditions in the Nazis' "model" ghetto - which in reality was a way station to Auschwitz and other death camps - cultural, intellectual, and artistic life did exist within the walls of the ghetto. Like the heart-breaking book I Never Saw Another Butterfly, which contains the poetry and drawings of the children of Terezn, the handwritten cookbook is proof that the Nazis could not break the spirit of the Jewish people. Houses of Study: A Jewish Woman among Books

by Ilana Blumberg

To learn was to live, and to learn well was to live well. This was the lesson of both cultures of the Modern Orthodox Jewish world in which Ilana Blumberg was educated, with its commitment to traditional Jewish practice and ideas alongside an appreciation for modern, secular wisdom. But when the paths of Jewish tradition and secular wisdom inevitably diverge, applying this lesson can become extraordinarily tricky, especially for a woman. Blumberg’s memoir of negotiating these two worlds is the story of how a Jewish woman’s life was shaped by a passion for learning; it is also a rare look into the life of Modern Orthodoxy, the twentieth-century movement of Judaism that tries to reconcile modernity with tradition.

Three Weissmanns of Westport Melody of Secrets HB Creating Lively Passover Seders (PB)
Melody of Secrets HB
Our Price: $24.99
When Joseph Weissmann divorced his wife, he was seventy eight years old and she was seventy-five . . . He said the words Irreconcilable differences, and saw real confusion in his wifes eyes.

Irreconcilable differences? she said. Of course there are irreconcilable differences. What on earth does that have to do with divorce?

Thus begins The Three Weissmanns of Westport, a sparkling contemporary adaptation of Sense and Sensibility from the always winning Cathleen Schine, who has already been crowned a modern-day Jewish Jane Austen by Peoples Leah Rozen.

In Schines story, sisters Miranda, an impulsive but successful literary agent, and Annie, a pragmatic library director, quite unexpectedly find themselves the middle-aged products of a broken home. Dumped by her husband of nearly fifty years and then exiled from their elegant New York apartment by his mistress, Betty is forced to move to a small, run-down Westport, Connecticut, beach cottage. Joining her are Miranda and Annie, who dutifully comes along to keep an eye on her capricious mother and sister. As the sisters mingle with the suburban aristocracy, love starts to blossom for both of them, and they find themselves struggling with the dueling demands of reason and romance.
Jeffrey Stepakoff's The Melody of Secrets is an epic love story set against the 1960s U.S. space program, when deeply-buried secrets could threaten not just a marriage, but a country.

Maria was barely eighteen as WWII was coming to its explosive end. A brilliant violinist, she tried to comfort herself with the Sibelius Concerto as American bombs rained down. James Cooper wasn't much older. A roguish fighter pilot stationed in London, he was shot down during a daring night raid and sought shelter in Marias cottage.
Fifteen years later, in Huntsville, Alabama, Maria is married to a German rocket scientist who works for the burgeoning U.S. space program. Her life in the South is at peace, purposefully distanced from her past. Everything is as it should beuntil James Cooper walks back into it.

Pulled from the desert airfield where he was testing planes no sane Air Force pilot would touch, and drinking a bit too much, Cooper is offered the chance to work for the government, and move himself to the front of the line for the astronaut program. He soon realizes that his job is to report not only on the rocket engines but also on the scientists developing them. Then Cooper learns secrets that could shatter Marias world...
A guide to help you invigorate your Seder, create lively discussions, and make personal connections with the Exodus story today.For many people, the act of simply reading the Haggadah no longer fulfills the Passover Seder's purpose: to help you feel as if you personally had gone out of Egypt. .Creating Lively Passover Seders is an innovative, interactive guide to help encourage fresh perspectives and lively dialogue.

New Jewish Feminism: Probing the Past, Forging the Future

by Rabbi Elyse Goldstein, forword by Anita Diamant.

Growing up in the 1960s, the notion of a woman rabbi, a woman Israeli Supreme Court judge, an Orthodox female Talmud scholar, or an Orthodox synagogue where women read the Torah from their side of the mechitzah were impossible, even ridiculous scenarios. Yet in the modern day, all of this is reaching the stage of normative.

The incomparable Dara Horn returns with a spellbinding novel of how technology changes memory and how memory shapes the soul.

Software prodigy Josie Ashkenazi has invented an application that records everything its users do. When an Egyptian library invites her to visit as a consultant, her jealous sister Judith persuades her to go. But in Egypts postrevolutionary chaos, Josie is abductedleaving Judith free to take over Josies life at home, including her husband and daughter, while Josies talent for preserving memories becomes a surprising test of her empathy and her only means of escape.
A century earlier, another traveler arrives in Egypt: Solomon Schechter, a Cambridge professor hunting for a medieval archive hidden in a Cairo synagogue. Both he and Josie are haunted by the work of the medieval philosopher Moses Maimonides, a doctor and rationalist who sought to reconcile faith and science, destiny and free will. But what Schechter finds, as he tracks down the remnants of a thousand-year-old communitys once-vibrant life, will reveal the power and perils of what Josies ingenious work brings into being: a world where nothing is ever forgotten.

An engrossing adventure that intertwines stories from Genesis, medieval philosophy, and the digital frontier, A Guide for the Perplexed is a novel of profound inner meaning and astonishing imagination.

Bagels and Grits: A Jew on the Bayou

by Jennifer Moses

Jennifer Anne Moses left behind a comfortable life in the upper echelons of East Coast Jewish society to move with her husband and children to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Searching for connection to her surroundings, she decided to volunteer at an AIDS hospice. But as she encountered a culture populated by French Catholics and Evangelical Christians, African Americans and Cajuns, altruistic nurses and nuns, ex-cons, street-walkers, impoverished AIDS patients, and healers of all stripes, she found she had embarked on an unexpected journey of profound self-discovery.
Baseball in the 1930s was more than a national pastime; it was a
cultural touchstone that galvanized communities and gave a struggling
country its heroes despite the woes of the Depression. Hank Greenberg,
one of the most exciting sluggers in baseball history, gave the people
of Detroit a reason to be proud.

From Kristallnacht to Watergate: Memoirs of Newspaperman HB Start-up Nation, Israel's Economic Miracle American Bride in Kabul: Memoir HB
Start-up Nation, HB
Our Price: $26.99
In this powerful memoir, Harry Rosenfeld describes his years as an editor at the New York Herald Tribune and the Washington Post, two of the greatest American newspapers in the second half of the turbulent twentieth century. After playing key roles at the Herald Tribune as it battled fiercely for its survival, he joined the Post under the leadership of Ben Bradlee and Katharine Graham as they were building the paper's national reputation. As the Post's Metropolitan editor, Rosenfeld managed Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein as they broke the Watergate story, overseeing the paper's standard-setting coverage that eventually earned it the Pulitzer Prize Gold Medal for Public Service. In describing his complicated relationship with Bradlee and offering an insider's perspective on the unlikely partnership of Woodward and Bernstein, Rosenfeld depicts the tensions and challenges, triumphs and setbacks that accompanied the Post's key role in Watergate, the most potent political scandal in America's history.
Rosenfeld also tells the gripping story of growing up in Hitler's Berlin. He saw his father taken away by the Gestapo in the middle of the night, and on Kristallnacht, the prelude to the Holocaust, he witnessed the burning of his synagogue and walked through streets littered with the shattered glass of Jewish businesses. After his family found refuge in America, his childhood experiences stayed with him and ultimately influenced his decision to make journalism his life's work.
At a time when newspapers and other media are under financial pressure to cut back on investigative reporting, From Kristallnacht to Watergate reminds us why journalism matters, and why good journalism is essential to our democracy.
The incredible story of Israel's economic miracle.  America can learn a great deal from the Israeli entrepreneurial model, beginning with a culture of leadership and risk management.  "Start-up Nation is a playbook for every CEO who wants to develop the next generation of corporate leaders."  by Dan Seno and Saul Singer Few westerners will ever be able to understand Muslim or Afghan society unless they are part of a Muslim family. Twenty years old and in love, Phyllis Chesler, a Jewish-American girl from Brooklyn, embarked on an adventure that has lasted for more than a half-century. In 1961, when she arrived in Kabul with her Afghan bridegroom, authorities took away her American passport. Chesler was now the property of her husbands family and had no rights of citizenship. Back in Afghanistan, her husband, a wealthy, westernized foreign college student with dreams of reforming his country, reverted to traditional and tribal customs. Chesler found herself unexpectedly trapped in a posh polygamous family, with no chance of escape. She fought against her seclusion and lack of freedom, her Afghan familys attempts to convert her from Judaism to Islam, and her husbands wish to permanently tie her to the country through childbirth. Drawing upon her personal diaries, Chesler recounts her ordeal, the nature of gender apartheidand her longing to explore this beautiful, ancient, and exotic country and culture. Chesler nearly died there but she managed to get out, returned to her studies in America, and became an author and an ardent activist for womens rights throughout the world. An American Bride in Kabul is the story of how a nave American girl learned to see the world through eastern as well as western eyes and came to appreciate Enlightenment values. This dramatic tale re-creates a time gone by, a place that is no more, and shares the way in which Chesler turned adversity into a passion for world-wide social, educational, and political reform.

Outliers: The Story of Success

by Malcolm Gladwell

In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of outliers — the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.
In the spring of 1946, the country was ready to heal. The war was finally
over, and as America's fathers and brothers were coming home, so too
were the sport's greats.  America also witnessed the beginning of a new era in baseball.  The Victory Season brings to vivid life these years of baseball and war.

American Jews and the Myth of Silence After the Holocaust, 1945-1962

by Professor Hasia R Diner

It has become an accepted truth: after World War II, American Jews chose to be silent about the mass murder of millions of their European brothers and sisters at the hands of the Nazis. Whether motivated by fear, shame, or the desire to assimilate, the Jewish community in the United States simply did not memorialize the Holocaust until the Eichmann trial and the 1967 Arab-Israeli War made it socially acceptable for them to do so. In a compelling work sure to draw fire from academics and pundits alike, Hasia R. Diner shows this assumption of silence to be categorically false.

Vedem, the Secret Magazine by the Boys of Terezin

by Kurt Jiri Kotouc ; Marie Rut Krizkova ; Zdenek Ornest.

From 1942 to 1944, a group of 13- to 15-year-old Jewish boys secretly produced a weekly magazine called Vedem (In the Lead) at the model concentration camp, Theresienstadt (Terezin in Czech). The writers, artists, and editors put together the issues and copied them by hand behind the blackout shades of their cellblock, which they affectionately called the Republic of Shkid. The material was saved by one of the handful of boys who survived the Holocaust, but it was suppressed for fifty years in Czechoslovakia. Now, for the first time, these works are being published simultaneously in English, Czech, and German. Vedem is a poignant glimpse at the world of boys torn from their comfortable childhoods, separated from their families, ultimately to perish in the Nazi death machine.

Kosher by Design Lightens Up: Fabulous food for a healthier lifestyle

by Susie Fishbein, Bonnie Taub-Dix
In the great body of Jewish literature there are many incredibly fascinating (but relatively unknown) curiosities, strange facts, unusual statements and oddities that have accumulated over Judaism's illustrious history. Why does Hebrew go from right to left? Are there Jewish remedies for toothaches and nose bleeds that are found in the Talmud? Are there Chinese Jews and why do so many Jews frequent Chinese restaurants. How do the ancient rabbis interpret dreams? The answers to these and many other questions are presented in this extraordinary collection of fascinating facts, with entries from the Bible, Talmud and Codes. Written by Rabbi Ron Isaacs, (a.k.a. "the teaching rabbi"), prolific author and congregational rabbi, he has now wandered off the beaten track of the Jewish tradition in order to find these unusual facts and little known insights. There is something that will inform and surprise the reader on almost every page. "Consider this book publishing miracle: that one of most important & provocative leaders of our time has good fortune to have as his biographer one of most important & provocative political journalists of our time.  Better than almost anyone, Godfrey Hodgson understands how ideas move politics & so he understands how & why ideas have moved Daniel Patrick Moynihan.  This book is important & it's delight" - EJ Dionne, author of Why Americans Hate Politics

Jewish Values in our Open Society: A Weekly Torah Commentary

by Meir Tamari

For many centuries, Jews have suffered economic oppression, have been forced to live in ghettos, and have been denied opportunities available to others. However, in recent times, Jews have entered an open society where freedom and prosperity are available to all.

With this new and massive shift in circumstances, Jews are often unsure of how to approach, perceive and relate the Torah to their lives.
Rise and Be Seated : The Ups and Downs of Jewish Worship by Joseph A. Levine

This innovative book places Jewish worship in the context of an ongoing creative process that began 3,400 years ago and has only recently ground to a halt. Dr. Joseph A. Levine empowers concerned synagogue goers who, until now, have held back from being the first in their comm8unicty to broach the same thoughts openly.
From words and phrases to grammar, to reading and translation, this book provides a solid foundation to begin reading the Bible in Hebrew.

One People, One Blood: Ethiopian-Israelis and the Return to Judaism

by Don Seeman

Little by little, an egg will come to walk upon its own leg.

But today, unlike these authentic Jews, the Feres Mura, Ethiopian Jews whose families converted to Christianity during the nineteenth century and then reasserted their Jewish identity in the latter part of the twentieth century, still await acceptance by Israel.
