What makes a belief or a lifestyle rational? How much evidence do you need before deciding to act on a belief? If your religious beliefs are tightly bound up with your particular experiences and upbringing, doesn't that undermine their reliability? All these questions, and more, come to the fore in Samuel Lebens' A Guide for the Jewish Undecided. Bringing cutting-edge philosophy, science, and decision theory into conversation with Jewish tradition, this book makes the case that Jews today have cogent reasons to embrace Judaism and its practices. Moreover, this embrace is the most viable way in which they can answer the call to human responsibility.

$16.99 - $25.99
More Info

The Beis HaLevi, Rav Yosef Dov Soloveitchik, is revered as the founder of the Brisker dynasty, Rosh Yeshivah of “the mother of yeshivahs” - Yeshivas Volozhin - and author of the classics Beis HaLevi Responsa and Beis HaLevi al HaTorah.

Among his writings is a brilliant essay on bitachon, trust in Hashem. It was not published during his lifetime, and remained in a manuscript form with family members for close to a century, before it was made available to the public by his great-grandchildren.

Now, at last, English-speaking readers can access the treasures of faith and trust that were hidden away for so many years. The Beis HaLevi on Bitachon includes the entire original text; a flowing, elucidated translation; a wide-ranging commentary that explores the many facets of emunah and bitachon, drawing upon the works of dozens of Torah sages; and an Overview by Rabbi Nosson Scherman. “Insights” appear throughout the book, bringing a contemporary focus to bitachon, and fundamental topics are dealt with more in depth in the appendix section.

The Maharal discussed the importance of reciting pesukim about bitachon every day. This volume includes a special section with such pesukim compiled by Rav Zundel of Salant, together with a prayer for strengthening our bitachon.

The Beis HaLevi on Bitachon gives us clear answers to many of life's most important questions. What is the proper balance between hishtadlus, effort, and bitachon, trust? How should a person react in times of trouble? Why does fear have no place in a Jew's life? What are the many benefits of bitachon - in this world and the next?

The Beis HaLevi on Bitachon is the hidden treasure - finally revealed! - which will bring us to the faith and trust so vital to our lives.

Modern science is the most accurate lens of reality that humanity has developed so far. Science is crucial to humanity's health, safety, and development. Still, the lens of science only sees a thin slice of the totality of existence. Much of the human experience cannot be simply explained by standard quantifiable tests.

Many people have become aware of the limits and shortcomings of scientific knowledge and have also realized that our perpetual hunger for spiritual understanding is real and undeniable. Many of us sense that there is something beyond.

Throughout various periods of history and various cultures and societies, people have been interested in the mysterious and the paranormal. This yearning is rooted in the soul's search for true spirituality.

A Jewish Guide to the Mysterious , written by one of contemporary Judaism's leading scholars and teachers, clearly explains classic Torah views on intriguing phenomena, such as dreams, astrology, time travel, alien life, reincarnation, ESP and auras, angels, demons, ghosts , and even such topics as the lost city of Atlantis and the Bermuda Triangle.
