The Diary of a Young Girl: Anne Frank - The Definitive Edition

by Anne Frank, Mirjam Pressler, Miriam Pressler

Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl is among the most enduring documents of the twentieth century. Since its publication in 1947, it has been read by tens of millions of people all over the world. It remains a beloved and deeply admired testament to the indestructible nature of the human spirit. Restored in this Definitive Edition are diary entries that were omitted from the original edition.

These passages, which constitute 30 percent more material, reinforce the fact that Anne was first and foremost a teenage girl, not a remote and flawless symbol. She fretted about and tried to cope with her own sexuality. Like many young girls, she often found herself in disagreements with her mother. And like any teenager, she veered between the carefree nature of a child and the full-fledged sorrow of an adult. Anne emerges more human, more vulnerable and more vital than ever.
There are things we can see and things we can't see. God is the one we can't see.

Greatest Adventures: David & Goliath

By Hanna Barbera

The kingdom of Israel faces a fearsome threat when the Philistine army marches across its borders. At the forefront of the invaders is the giant warrior Goliath. This tall behemoth issues a challenge: he will take on an Israelite champion in single combat and the tribe of the loser will be enslaved. For 40 days Goliath repeats the challenge and there are no comers. Finally one boy does step forth: David, a shepherd boy who is armed with nothing more than his sling...and a faith in God as towering as his mighty foe.

Oh, the Places You'll Go! and The Lorax by Dr Seuss Read by Ted Danson, John Lithgow

Oh, The Places You'll Go!

For out-starting upstarts of all ages, here is a wonderfully wise and blessedly brief graduation speech from the one and only Dr. Seuss. In his inimitable, humorous verse he addresses the Great Balancing Act (life itself, and the ups and downs it presents) while encouraging us to find the success that lies within us.

The Lorax

Long before saving the earth became a global concern, Dr. Seuss, speaking through his character the Lorax, warned against mindless progress and the danger it posed to the earth's natural beauty.
This simple introduction to the Aleph Bet is intended for the youngest readers. Passover Cutouts for Bulletin Boards

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.

Conscience: The Duty to Obey and the Duty to Disobey

One More Year by Sana Krasikov

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.

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.
