Planting & Building: Raising a Jewish Child

Planting & Building: Raising a Jewish Child

$14.99
More Info

Any worthwhile, long-term endeavor must develop from sound principles and a firm foundation especially child-rearing. Planting & Building: Raising a Jewish Child is not only the title of this 80-page text, but these two concepts Planting & Building form the foundation upon which the structure of successful child-rearing rests.

 

Growth is a natural, organic process, as when a seed becomes a flower, while construction is a conscientious, manual process...but both are essential to proper personal development.

 

Effective child-rearing involves building character and personality by cultivating a child s inner potential. This is the theme Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe develops in this seminal work on raising children.

 

Along the way, the author touches upon a variety of pertinent issues: the importance of timing, setting a good example, the love component, values, responsibility, the significance of play, kindness and compassion, relating to others, choosing a school, and more. But everything emanates from the creative fusion of planting & building.

 

Simple yet profound, Planting & Building deals in essentials.

 

Full of wisdom, warmth, and human understanding, it defines the basics of effective child-rearing, and then outlines a clear plan of action for securing it.

River Kettle and Bird: A Torah Guide to a Successful Marriage

$20.99
More Info

The unusual title, The RIVER, the KETTLE, and the BIRD refers to an age-old Jewish saying that describes three successive levels of peace found in a happy marriage.

Based on traditional Jewish sources, this distinctive volume enlists the profound wisdom and insight of traditional Judaism to come to the aid of contemporary married life.

A sound structure cannot stand unless it rests on firm foundations, and the focus here is to examine the necessary foundations of a fulfilling relationship: the goal of marriage, the criteria for choosing a mate, understanding the different natures of male and female, controlling anger and criticism, fostering love, giving and gratitude.

The modern marriage, given today s complex societal state, finds itself under attack, and challenged from severe social and financial pressures; it can use all the support and fortification it can get. Deeply rooted in reality, not fantasy, this illuminating guide provides the essential tools and understanding all couples need to ensure a marriage that not only survives, but thrives.
