An instant New York Times Bestseller!

"Consider this another vaccine against disaster. Fortunately, this dose won't cause a temporary fever--and it happens to be a rippingly good read." --Wired

"This crisply written and well-paced book reads like an all-caps warning for a world shackled to the machines we carry in our pockets and place on our laps . . ." --The Washington Post

From two former military officers and award-winning authors, a chillingly authentic geopolitical thriller that imagines a naval clash between the US and China in the South China Sea in 2034--and the path from there to a nightmarish global conflagration.

On March 12, 2034, US Navy Commodore Sarah Hunt is on the bridge of her flagship, the guided missile destroyer USS John Paul Jones, conducting a routine freedom of navigation patrol in the South China Sea when her ship detects an unflagged trawler in clear distress, smoke billowing from its bridge. On that same day, US Marine aviator Major Chris "Wedge" Mitchell is flying an F35E Lightning over the Strait of Hormuz, testing a new stealth technology as he flirts with Iranian airspace. By the end of that day, Wedge will be an Iranian prisoner, and Sarah Hunt's destroyer will lie at the bottom of the sea, sunk by the Chinese Navy. Iran and China have clearly coordinated their moves, which involve the use of powerful new forms of cyber weaponry that render US ships and planes defenseless. In a single day, America's faith in its military's strategic pre-eminence is in tatters. A new, terrifying era is at hand.

So begins a disturbingly plausible work of speculative fiction, co-authored by an award-winning novelist and decorated Marine veteran and the former commander of NATO, a legendary admiral who has spent much of his career strategically outmaneuvering America's most tenacious adversaries. Written with a powerful blend of geopolitical sophistication and human empathy, 2034 takes us inside the minds of a global cast of characters--Americans, Chinese, Iranians, Russians, Indians--as a series of arrogant miscalculations on all sides leads the world into an intensifying international storm. In the end, China and the United States will have paid a staggering cost, one that forever alters the global balance of power.

Everything in 2034 is an imaginative extrapolation from present-day facts on the ground combined with the authors' years working at the highest and most classified levels of national security. Sometimes it takes a brilliant work of fiction to illuminate the most dire of warnings: 2034 is all too close at hand, and this cautionary tale presents the reader a dark yet possible future that we must do all we can to avoid.

50 Mikvahs that Shaped History

50 Mikvahs that Shaped History

$22.99
More Info
  • The most futuristic debates – Can a mikvah be built on the International Space Station? May metals from Mars be used to build a mikvah?
  • The oldest debate on record, between Yitzchak Avinu and the shepherds of Gerar - 3,600 years ago, the question was: how can you tell if a mikvah’s water comes from a nearby river or from some other source?
  • The most controversial debate - 400 years ago, in Rovigo, Italy, the brothers Consiglio argued how to fill the mikvah in their yard: and before the debate was over, rabbis from across the world, from Eretz Yisrael to Prague, had authored hundreds of pages in defense of each side!

This sefer explores how these debates (and others) shape our understanding of the nine basic rules for building a mikvah; how they inspire and enlighten us about the importance of purity and immersion; and how they enhance our relationship with Hashem.

More Info
A suspense-thriller about a nightmare scenario-a countdown to a Mumbai-style attack on U.S. soil, where the FBI, the Israeli Mossad, the US-based Iranian clandestine terror network, and the Islamic Jihad fraternity, all engaged in a timeless conflict, which plays out to a crescendo that comes to a head before the dramatic conclusion. The story offers an ample dose of realism, a cast of intense characters who engage in love, lust, and violence. It portrays the Jihad culture with its rationale and the volcano that breeds an irrational obsession with death. Moreover, it builds on the Jihadists' motivation for targeting so many innocents and exploiting the victims' massacre as a stepping-stone to their dream of eternal paradise next to Allah's throne. The real question is not whether Jihad terrorists' plots will ever cease to emerge-there is no chance of that. The question the book seeks to answer is, will the next one be stopped before it's too late?

An Israeli child is born in a Ukrainian bomb shelter -- and United Hatzalah brings her home under fire ...

A United Hatzalah volunteer scales a 12-foot-wall – and is the first to respond to the tragedy of Meron ...

Eli Beer, founder of United Hatzalah, slips and breaks his leg racing to an emergency -- and manages to crawl to the choking child and save her life ...


The amazing work of Israel’s United Hatzalah began, incredibly, when five-year-old 
Eli Beer witnessed a terror attack and dreamed of being the one to save the victim. While still a young teen, Eli set out to make that dream come true, creating an underground network of pioneering EMTs who were determined to bring their life-saving skills to victims in only 90 seconds, no matter where they were.

90 Seconds is the story of how a boy who failed in school created one of the world’s largest all-volunteer emergency service. It’s the story of dramatic rescues, sometimes under fire. Of life-changing and life-saving innovations such as the “ambucycle.” Of bringing United Hatzalah’s lifesaving experience to Nepal, Haiti, and, most recently, Ukraine, and their heart-rending rescue work in the Surfside and Versailles wedding hall tragedies.

It is the story of how with determination, vision, self-sacrifice and compassion -- and, of course, siyata D’Shmaya (the help of Heaven) -- lives can be saved and dreams can come true.

The world is in crisis: antisemitism, the "longest hatred," is rearing its ugliest heads, again. Although much has been written about the subject, very little has been done to educate the public specifically about antisemitism--existing curricula are either outdated or not comprehensive, and none are designed to be engaging, especially to the younger audiences that need to learn this subject most.

A Brief and Visual History of Antisemitism aims to fill that glaring gap, not merely as a history textbook but as an epidemiological study that analyzes the pathology of the antisemitism virus from ancient to modern times: when, where, and how did antisemitism first emerge?

How did the disease of Jew-hatred spread so far and wide? Why has the hateful virus proven so resilient over time? The goal of this highly visual book is thus not merely to inform
of what has already transpired, but to empower individuals to make sense of the avalanche of anti-Jewish invective in real-time. As an
added feature, Augmented Reality technology allows readers to use their phones (and a free app) to scan highlighted areas and reveal a trove of bonus contents such as archival footage, animations, official documents, and 3D objects that offer immersive perspectives on historical landmarks.

Rabbinic literature is called the Oral Law, because it is not found in the text of the Bible. It was preserved as oral statements that originated with the giving of the Torah and became the focus of study and deliberation throughout the generations. The Oral Law comprises explanations of biblical verses, ancient halakhic traditions not rooted in the text of the Bible, and rabbinic ordinances enacted throughout the generations. Since the scope of rabbinic literature is enormous, this work is limited to citing the Mishna, the Babylonian Talmud and the Jerusalem Talmud, the minor tractates, and the aggadic Midrash primarily Midrash Rabba and Midrash Tanhuma. The basis of this anthology is largely the aggadic material in the Talmud and in the various works of aggadic Midrash. The matters included here serve as commentary on the written Torah. Features: -Introductions and explanations that place talmudic and midrashic passages in context -Talmudic discussions broken down to component parts to aid comprehension -Full integration with other Concise Guide volumes The Erez Series is comprised of the Concise Guides to the full gamut of Jewish thought, from the Torah to modern halakha (Jewish law) and Mahshava (Jewish philosophy). The late Rabbi Adin Even Israel Steinsaltz zt'l was one of the leading thinkers of the modern age and the most prolific author of Jewish thought and commentary since the middle ages. The Erez Series distills the essence of 4 of the principal schools of the Jewish tradition Torah, the Sages (Hazal), Halakha, and Mahshava as a tool for review or introduction to the world of Jewish thought.

The epic story of Satmar Hasidic Williamsburg, from the decline of New York to the gentrification of Brooklyn

"Groundbreaking. . . . To fully understand Satmar, of course, one has to be born into it. But to understand how political prowess and real-estate know-how shaped the group's current iteration in Brooklyn, it would be wise to start with this outstanding book."--Laura E. Adkins, LA Review of Books

The Hasidic community in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn is famously one of the most separatist, intensely religious, and politically savvy groups of people in the entire United States. Less known is how the community survived in one of the toughest parts of New York City during an era of steep decline, only to later resist and also participate in the unprecedented gentrification of the neighborhood.

Nathaniel Deutsch and Michael Casper unravel the fascinating history of how a group of determined Holocaust survivors encountered, shaped, and sometimes fiercely opposed the urban processes that transformed their gritty neighborhood, from white flight and the construction of public housing to rising crime, divestment of city services, and, ultimately, extreme gentrification. By showing how Williamsburg's Hasidim rejected assimilation while still undergoing distinctive forms of Americanization and racialization, Deutsch and Casper present both a provocative counter-history of American Jewry and a novel look at how race, real estate, and religion intersected in the creation of a quintessential, and yet deeply misunderstood, New York neighborhood.

In writing the sefer, Rabbi Yaged worked closely with Harav Yaakov E. Forchheimer, the senior halachic authority of Beis Medrash Govoha, who reviewed all the halachos, and whose piskei halachah appear throughout the sefer.

What is considered a life-threatening situation? How high does fever have to be to pose a danger to life? What if a child needs stitches? What about painkillers or medicines? May an allergic person carry an Epi-pen? What are the halachos of going to the hospital on Shabbos to give birth?

Refuah on Shabbos discusses these and so many other halachos, offering clear guidelines to help navigate this complex and vital subject.

This compilation of much of Joseph Kaplan’s published work, sewn
together with new insights, explanations, and history, is not simply an
anthology or memoir. Rather, it is an engaging trip through the life and mind
of its author through stories of him as a student, husband, father, son,
brother, and grandfather; stories of his parents, grandparents, children,
grandchildren, siblings, friends, mentors, and colleagues, and his courting
of, and almost 60-year love affair with, his wife Sharon; stories of his
sojourns in the Bronx, Far Rockaway, the Upper West Side, and Teaneck,
and his 46 years as a commercial litigator, Sh’ma magazine fellow, and
Jewish Standard columnist.
But stories are only one part of the, well, story. The book is also chock-full
of Kaplan’s ideas and opinions about important subjects like Modern
Orthodoxy, his liberal politics, Orthodox Jewish feminism, the Covid and
Trump years, the culture wars, theodicy, church-state legal questions,
Jewish divorce law, liturgy and ritual, and more. Yet he also writes movingly
about softer, more intimate, topics like kindness, friendship, responsibility,
apologies, writing, change, language, and truth. And, of course, baseball
and books.
