Rosie was always told her red hair was a curse, but she never believed it. She often dreamed what it would look like under a white veil with the man of her dreams by her side. However, her life takes a harrowing turn in 1944 when she is forced out of her home and sent to the most gruesome of places: Auschwitz.


Upon arrival, Rosie's head is shaved and along with the loss of her beautiful hair, she loses the life she once cherished. Among the chaos and surrounded by hopelessness, Rosie realizes the only thing the Nazis cannot take away from her is the fierce redhead resilience in her spirit.

Rescuing the Rebbe of Belz

Rescuing the Rebbe of Belz

$29.99
More Info

With typical modesty, the saintly tzaddik Grand Rabbi Aharon of Belz said, "Every survivor must have been accompanied by malachim (angels) on every side." If every survivor was saved by angels, the Rebbe was surely escorted by entire companies of angels.

Even in an era of holy people, he was revered as someone not of this mundane world. His survival involved miracle after miracle, sacrifice after sacrifice, heroism after heroism. It is no exaggeration to say that the impoverished Jewish world needed him, so Heaven intervened whenever necessary to pluck him from the inferno and bring him to Eretz Yisrael, where he could inspire his followers to lay the foundations for the rebirth of Torah and chassidus.

This book is a traiblazing effort. Yosef Israel is a British journalist who has exhaustively researched every aspect of the Rebbe's escape under the very noses of the Nazis, to whom the Wunderrabbiner of Belz was a prime public enemy. Much has been written about his rescue, but nowhere have all the pieces been gathered together as carefully and accurately as in this book.

The story is an adventure. It is an exercise in supreme faith. It is a lesson in the dedication of ordinary Jews to spiritual survival in a jungle of hatred, oppression, torture, and murder. It is an uplifting tale of faith and Divine Providence.

The Belzer Rav lived not for himself, but for his Maker and his people. Whether in hiding in Bochnia, disguised as an officer on a desperate flight from Poland to Hungary, on the journey to the Holy Land, or in infusing a broken, orphaned remnant with the faith and strength to persevere, he was one of the greatest spiritual figures of the century.

This story of his miraculous rescue will elevate everyone who has the privilege of reading it.

The Power of Perseverance: The Story of Rabbi Yehuda Simes Nobody asked me. Nobody! I had not been in a massive auditorium listening to an authoritative voice challenging the crowd: "We are looking for volunteers. Who here would like to be the wife of a quadriplegic?" I did not hop up and down, making the emphatic ooo-ooo-ooo sound that my students emit when they are eager to sign up for a job or a privilege. I did not call out, "Pick me! Pick me! Please! Pick me!" I did not. Or so I thought. When a catastrophic accident completely altered Rabbi Yehuda Simes's physical existence, he was forced to rediscover his true essence, to internalize the idea that his body was merely a cloak for his soul, which remained forever whole despite being housed in so broken a body. His wife Shaindel, for her part, was forced overnight to become her husband's caretaker, cheerleader, patient advocate, and support system. Together the heroic couple forged ahead, as Rabbi Simes showed the world what it means to LIVE al kiddush Hashem, even in the most difficult circumstances. Rabbi Simes was the force who challenged every "I can't" in existence. In spite of his countless limitations after the accident, he went right on with serving Hashem, albeit a bit differently than beforehand. Whereas he had always been a teacher, now the world became his classroom, as he utilized his situation to amplify his messages and vastly extend his sphere of influence. Painstakingly typing letter by letter--first with voice activation, and then, when he lost his speaking capabilities, with an eye-movement detector--Rabbi Simes began to share with his many students and admirers his victories, setbacks, and determination to constantly find purpose in every moment of his life, even as a quadriplegic. The Rolling Rabbi is the gripping and inspiring account of Rabbi Yehuda Simes's remarkable journey, as seen from the perspective of Shaindel Simes, while peppered with many of Rabbi Simes's own writings.

TWO BOOKS IN ONE: Book 1: Trials, Tribulations, and a Triumph of Trust Book 2: A Jew in "A Place Called Prison" --- For nearly a decade, it was the court case at the forefront of every Jew's mind. It was what kept Klal Yisrael's insides churning, and our heartfelt tefillosgoing strong. It's the story of Sholom Rubashkin, and it has never been told so intimately and on such a personal level--until now. The story of Sholom Rubashkin is one of faith and trust in Hashem, despite the destruction of a life's work and in the face of seemingly inevitable doom. It's a story of unflagging strength behind bars and under the weight of a decades-long prison sentence. It's the story of a person's clarity and ability to rise above the daily struggles and see in them a Divine mission. Who is Sholom Rubashkin? How did he land in jail with a near life-sentence, incriminated by the very people for whom he'd done so much good? What was the secret of his soaring faith? How did he survive--no, thrive!--as a Jew in the ugliness of a place called prison? For the first time ever, Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin's personal struggle during his seemingly never-ending saga is recounted, from start to finish, with many firsthand details and much of the emotion he and his family actually experienced. This eye-opening account of Jewish survival in a tough federal prison will leave you spellbound, inspired, and grateful to be a member of the Jewish nation. Sholom Rubashkin's saga—from his initial arrest until, at long last, his thrilling release--is not only his own. It is all of Klal Yisrael's. And his triumph of trust and faith in Hashem can be all of ours to emulate, as well.

Ta'aroch Lifanai Shulchan [Hardcover]

By: Rabbi Eitam Shimon Hankin

 

Product Description

The life, time, and work of Rabbi Yechiel Michel Epstein, author of the Aruch Hashulchan.

 

Rabbi Yechiel Michel Epstein of Novardok is still considered by many to be the last arbiter, the ultimate authority in Jewish law. His book "Aruch HaRach" is almost the only book that has been written about the Shulchan Aruch in its entirety, with all its 1705 symbols. In addition, Rabbi Epstein wrote the "Aruch HaShulchan HaTofit" on laws that are not customary at this time, and thus his monumental work approaches his scope to that of Maimonides.

 

Rabbi Eitam Shimon Hankin's comprehensive and fascinating book explores in depth the life and period of R' Epstein.

 

Rabbi Eitam Henkin was known both as a brilliant historian and as a first-rate Torah scholar.

The Invisible Wall

The Invisible Wall

$17.00
More Info
This wonderfully charming memoir, written when the author was 93, vibrantly brings to life an all-but-forgotten time and place. It is a moving tale of working-class life, and of the boundaries that can be overcome by love.

"There are places that I have never forgotten. A little cobbled street in a smoky mill town in the North of England has haunted me for the greater part of my life. It was inevitable that I should write about it and the people who lived on both sides of its 'Invisible Wall.' "

The narrow street where Harry Bernstein grew up, in a small English mill town, was seemingly unremarkable. It was identical to countless other streets in countless other working-class neighborhoods of the early 1900s, except for the "invisible wall" that ran down its center, dividing Jewish families on one side from Christian families on the other. Only a few feet of cobblestones separated Jews from Gentiles, but socially, it they were miles apart.

On the eve of World War I, Harry's family struggles to make ends meet. His father earns little money at the Jewish tailoring shop and brings home even less, preferring to spend his wages drinking and gambling. Harry's mother, devoted to her children and fiercely resilient, survives on her dreams: new shoes that might secure Harry's admission to a fancy school; that her daughter might marry the local rabbi; that the entire family might one day be whisked off to the paradise of America.

Then Harry's older sister, Lily, does the unthinkable: She falls in love with Arthur, a Christian boy from across the street.

When Harry unwittingly discovers their secret affair, he must choose between the morals he's been taught all his life, his loyalty to his selfless mother, and what he knows to be true in his own heart.

The untold story of the founding father's likely Jewish birth and upbringing--and its revolutionary consequences for understanding him and the nation he fought to create

In The Jewish World of Alexander Hamilton, Andrew Porwancher debunks a string of myths about the origins of this founding father to arrive at a startling conclusion: Hamilton, in all likelihood, was born and raised Jewish. For more than two centuries, his youth in the Caribbean has remained shrouded in mystery. Hamilton himself wanted it that way, and most biographers have simply assumed he had a Christian boyhood. With a detective's persistence and a historian's rigor, Porwancher upends that assumption and revolutionizes our understanding of an American icon.

This radical reassessment of Hamilton's religious upbringing gives us a fresh perspective on both his adult years and the country he helped forge. Although he didn't identify as a Jew in America, Hamilton cultivated a relationship with the Jewish community that made him unique among the founders. As a lawyer, he advocated for Jewish citizens in court. As a financial visionary, he invigorated sectors of the economy that gave Jews their greatest opportunities. As an alumnus of Columbia, he made his alma mater more welcoming to Jewish people. And his efforts are all the more striking given the pernicious antisemitism of the era. In a new nation torn between democratic promises and discriminatory practices, Hamilton fought for a republic in which Jew and Gentile would stand as equals.

By setting Hamilton in the context of his Jewish world for the first time, this fascinating book challenges us to rethink the life and legend of America's most enigmatic founder.

Like the sun―a blazing ball of fire that one cannot gaze upon directly, yet whose radiance and warmth illuminates our world, infusing life, joy and vigor into the soul of every living being―so was the life of Rabbeinu HaGaon HaRav Shimshon Dovid Pincus ztl. 

Nurtured by parents who imbibed deeply from the Torah wellsprings of European Jewry ― such as Rav Baruch Ber Leibowitz, Rav Eliezer Yehudah Finkel, and Sara Schenirer ― young Shimshon grew into a world\-renowned speaker, educating and influencing audiences across the Jewish spectrum. He manifested spiritual powers that seemed to transcend the forces of nature and human capacity. His heart burned with holy sparks of fervor, and those sparks grew into a mighty torch that illuminates our world with Torah, yiras Shamayim and kedushah until this very day.

Like a Blazing Sun traces Rav Pincus’s path from the American spiritual desert of the early 20th century to Torah greatness. Based on the bestselling Hebrew biography Hashemesh Bigvuraso, it is a stirring collection of firsthand facts, hanhagos, and stories from distinguished rabbanim, talmidei chachamim, family members and talmidim who ensured that this sefer―like its protagonist―bears the eternal stamp of emes.

He supports individual rights and battles corruption within the government. This unique worldview led to the conclusion of his term as defense minister in 2016 in the Netanyahu government and also serves as his compass in his journey back to leadership of the state. Ya'alon speaks openly on the main issues on the State of Israel's agenda today, including his criticisms of the submarine affair, the cabinet's behavior in Operation Protective Edge, and the ethical crisis of the Elor Azaria incident. This fascinating and inspiring insider view is a must-read for anyone interested in the landscape of the Middle East.

A groundbreaking historical reexamination of one of the most infamous episodes in the history of anti-Semitism

Joseph Süss Oppenheimer--"Jew Süss"--is one of the most iconic figures in the history of anti-Semitism. In 1733, Oppenheimer became the "court Jew" of Carl Alexander, the duke of the small German state of Württemberg. When Carl Alexander died unexpectedly, the Württemberg authorities arrested Oppenheimer, put him on trial, and condemned him to death for unspecified "misdeeds." On February 4, 1738, Oppenheimer was hanged in front of a large crowd just outside Stuttgart. He is most often remembered today through several works of fiction, chief among them a vicious Nazi propaganda movie made in 1940 at the behest of Joseph Goebbels.

The Many Deaths of Jew Süss is a compelling new account of Oppenheimer's notorious trial. Drawing on a wealth of rare archival evidence, Yair Mintzker investigates conflicting versions of Oppenheimer's life and death as told by four contemporaries: the leading inquisitor in the criminal investigation, the most important eyewitness to Oppenheimer's final days, a fellow court Jew who was permitted to visit Oppenheimer on the eve of his execution, and one of Oppenheimer's earliest biographers. What emerges is a lurid tale of greed, sex, violence, and disgrace--but are these narrators to be trusted? Meticulously reconstructing the social world in which they lived, and taking nothing they say at face value, Mintzker conjures an unforgettable picture of "Jew Süss" in his final days that is at once moving, disturbing, and profound.

The Many Deaths of Jew Süss is a masterfully innovative work of history, and an illuminating parable about Jewish life in the fraught transition to modernity.

“Do you know where I can find a place to stay for Shabbos?”

“Sure. Go to the Grand Rabbi on Beacon Street. He always has room for one more.”

He came from a long line of chassidic leaders, reaching all the way back to the Baal Shem Tov. He was the son of the first Bostoner Rebbe, Rabbi Pinchos Dovid Horowitz. He was a brilliant Torah scholar, having learned at Mesivta Torah Vodaath under one of the greatest roshei yeshivah of that time. And yet in his profound modesty, Rav Levi Yitzchok Horowitz did not see himself as a rebbe.

 

Hashem, though, decreed otherwise. When a small group of his father’s followers pleaded with Rav Levi Yitzchok to come to Boston and lead their shul, he acquiesced. And in the next sixty years, he and his devoted rebbetzin would change the lives of thousands. As rav of his kehillah ― which included influential professionals and intellectuals, a dynamic leader of the Boston Jewish community, and Shabbos host to scores of searching college students, the Bostoner Rebbe was a pivotal figure in the flourishing of Torah life in America in the decades after World War II.

 

In The Rebbe on Beacon Street you will read of the Rebbe’s wisdom and warmth, of his burning desire to help every Jew who came his way, both physically and spiritually. Like Avraham Avinu and Sarah Imeinu, the Rebbe and Rebbetzin on Beacon Street opened their homes to all: everyone was welcomed and treated like family.

 

Among the Rebbe’s greatest achievements was his founding of ROFEH International, an organization dedicated to providing medical referrals and support services to sick people and their families.

 

When already in his mid 60s ― when many are beginning to contemplate retirement ― the Rebbe founded a new community with the opening of a shul in Jerusalem’s Har Nof neighborhood. For the next two decades, he would spend six months a year leading and developing a Bostoner kehillah in Eretz Yisrael, while continuing to be a father figure to his flock in Boston.

Come and meet The Rebbe on Beacon Street;. As you bask in the glow of his overflowing ahavas Yisrael, you will feel inspired. Enlightened. Transformed.

A pioneer in Jewish outreach and the founder of Hineni, she made history in Madison Square Garden, where she proved that Torah could interest, engage, and energize all Jews. Through her newspaper columns, television programs, bestselling books, and standing-room-only speeches, she ignited the paint Yid that lies within every Jew. She shared her passion for Torah and Jewish continuity and enriched the lives of millions throughout the world. She was The Rebbetzin - Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis and this is her unforgettable and inspiring story. Born in Szeged, Hungary, Esther Jungreis descended from a great rabbinic dynasty that traced its lineage back to the days of King David. Having survived the Holocaust, she and her husband, Rabbi Meshulem Jungreis, were determined to devote their lives to combatting the spiritual holocaust of assimilation. Her life was infused with a giant spirit, and a fierce love for every Jew. She brought to Jews the world over a rare and wonderful combination: the warmth and caring of a Jewish mother (she made literally hundreds of shidduchim!), Combined with the excitement and inspiration that only a truly gifted and dynamic teacher can share. The Rebbetzin was written by Rabbi Nachman Seltzer, one of the Jewish world s premiere authors, who interviewed close to one hundred people family, shul members, students, neighbors, and many others whose souls she touched, who shared her devotion to Klal Yisrael. In these stories he vividly captures the life of one of the twentieth century s most fascinating, charismatic and spiritually inspiring Jewish personalities. The Rebbetzin is an absorbing and fascinating book to read. But more: it guides us to look to the future with a renewed sense of commitment, and to build upon the Rebbetzin s accomplishments and perpetuate her inspiring legacy.

From the frozen forests of the Soviet Union, under the murderous eyes of the KGB, came a man of miracles, of almost unbelievable mesiras nefesh... The Ribnitzer. He was a tzaddik. A ba’al mofes, a miracle worker. In time, he became a living legend, the address for thousands seeking berachos, first in Russia, then in Eretz Yisrael and, eventually in America. His intense avodah included fasting, hours and hours of profound tefillah. And, of course, immersion in in the holy waters of the mikveh. Despite the Nazis, who occupied his town during World War Two. Despite the KGB, who was determined to snuff out Yiddishkeit. Despite the desperate cold of a Russian winter: Reb Chaim Zanvil, the Ribnitzer Rebbe, would find a way. A way to serve Hashem through immersion. Through traveling for hours and days, in order to secretly give a Jewish baby a bris in Stalinist Russia. Yes, this is a story about miracles. But more: it’s the story of a man who was a miracle himself.
