The Man With the Glow

By Joshua R. (Shlomo) Simons

Chaim is stuck in the middle of nowhere. It’s Thursday night, and he has no kosher food. How will he eat on Shabbos?

When a mysterious man with a glow appears, Chaim is left with a tale that can only be described one way — miraculous.

A Spiritual GPS For the Journeyer & The Real New World Order

By Yemima Bakol

Disillusions: A Spiritual GPS For the Journeyer & The Real New World Order is a fresh, even fun (and quirky!) approach to learning Torah, equally for the ben-Torah as for the ba’al teshuva. While the story’s framework is essentially an answer to two international bestsellers, Richard Bach’s 1977 Illusions and Dr. Stephen Hawking’s 1988 A Brief History of Time, Disillusions: A Spiritual GPS For the Journeyer & The Real New World Order is an easy-flowing, novel-form narrative that brings together most of the central spiritual concepts of Torah. Restaging and recasting Bach’s two characters as Aryeh Lieb and Dan Shimon, though not requiring the reader to have read either addressed books, Disillusions: A Spiritual GPS For the Journeyer & The Real New World Order redefines the concept of illusions, as are other spiritual precepts, but according to Torah. The characters embark on a mind-stretching, mental and spiritual challenge that is uplifting and inspirational, as they explore and define the “navigational” tools Torah gives us to raise our consciousness and direct us toward the upcoming Geula, being Hashem’s New World Order. Disillusions: A Spiritual GPS For the Journeyer & The Real New World Order also tackles the big, existential, and ultimate questions of ‘Why was the world created in the first place?’, ‘What is the meaning and purpose of life?’, and ‘Where is the world headed?’, while also illuminating and championing the very timely wake-up call to Am Yisrael to return now to Eretz Yisrael, and explains why. But all these intense and profound issues are simplified and summarized.

Over 200 practical questions and answers about carrying without an eruv

Rabbi Shimshon Herschel Kahn
Rabbi Yair Silverstein
Rabbi Shmuel Zimmerman

Carrying (hotzaah) on Shabbos is a prohibited action which many times is overlooked. Although it is biblically sourced, many are unaware of the laws associated with what is permitted or forbidden to carry on Shabbos due to the reality that many communities have an Eruv. In this book we hope to discuss many practical questions that come up when the Eruv is down. For many of us the relevant questions are surprising and many. It is our hope that this book will help its readers navigate some of the questions that may arise.

Small Choices

Small Choices, Big Changes

By Sarah Pachter

Many individuals who seek to observe a Torah life  are often very remiss in the fulfillment of a balanced life incorporating the study of Torah together with the values of sensitivity to chesed, kavod habriyos (honor of human dignity) and what is referred to as the Fifth Shulchan Aruch common sense. The articles collected and compiled in this important book guide one towards a wholesome Torah observance.

With great admiration and honor,

Rabbi Baruch Simon
Rosh YeshivaYeshiva  Rabbenu Yitzchak Elchanan
