A Time To Conceal A Time To Reveal

A Time To Conceal A Time To Reveal

$16.99
More Info

On both Purim and Chanukah, we were threatened by an enemy that struck at our core values. The Amaleki championed the world view of mikreh - haphazardness, and the Yevanim dared to suggest there could be a replacement for Torah, chalilah. In both cases, our eyes were darkened and our spirituality assaulted.

However, the courageous Mordechai and Esther, and the bold and gallant Chashmona'im withstood the test. They avowed with great pride that our relationship with Hashem is never haphazard - and our Torah is never replaceable.

Only Hashem decides when it is A Time to Conceal His presence and when it is A Time to Reveal it. With this deep and inspirational book, we can remove the façade of teva and uncover the Glory of Hashem.

A close talmid of Harav Shlomo Freifeld zt"l, Rabbi Yehoshua Kurland is a venerated Jewish educator and the author of seven books.(Including the great seller A Time to Dance (Mosaica, 2016).

Megillas Esther tells a tale of concealment, a story of deep darkness. The Jewish community’s sin. Haman’s genocidal plot. Esther HaMalka’s fate. Even Hashem’s Name, hidden, never mentioned. Yet, deep darkness ... transformed into the great light of Purim.

Today, we experience a very different kind of concealment. Beneath the joy and merriment of our Purim celebrations lie many virtually unknown - and soul stirring- Torah truths that most of us have never encountered. Truths known to our Sages and Torah commentators, and now revealed to us through the scholarship and brilliance of Rabbi Daniel Glatstein.

Rav and founder of Machon Maggid Harakiah in Cedarhurst, NY, Rabbi Glatstein is one of the contemporary Jewish world’s most popular speakers and respected maggidei shiur. His more than 7000 recorded shiurim have garnered millions of views on Torahanytime.com and other venues. His Hebrew sefarim as well have garnered acclaim throughout the Torah world. Rabbi Glatstein has a masterful grasp of an exceptional array of sefarim and commentaries, and a rare ability to explain profound teachings with remarkable clarity.

In The Concealed and The Revealed, we will discover how seminal events throughout history are predicted in the Megillah and the astounding significance of the unusual letter formations. How all of Haman’s plans boomeranged right back at him and how Achashveirosh actually helped finance the rebuilding of the second Beis Hamikdash. We will learn about Eliyahu HaNavi’s mysterious appearances in the Megillah and why only an orphan like Queen Esther was chosen for her role to bring salvation to the Jewish People. So much wisdom, so many breathtaking chiddushim: The Concealed and The Revealed is like a generous and beautiful mishloach manos basket to Klal Yisrael, filled with delicacies that will nourish our souls and immeasurably enrich our joy on Purim and throughout our lives.

In all the stories of the Bible there are messages hidden beneath the surface, but it seems that there is no other book like the Book of Esther, in which the hidden prevails over the revealed. The uniqueness of the scroll is reflected in the scope of the concealments and especially in what they seek to conceal. In the hand of an artist, Grossman reveals what is hidden within the verses of the Book of Esther and reveals all to the reader.

The Book of Esther has inspired and impacted the American project since its very inception. Rabbis and ethicists, abolitionists and artists, preachers and presidents, have understood the text to speak to their moment. It has offered solace to immigrants, forged solidarity, impacted politics, and, in the spirit of Esther 4:14, roused individuals to realize that deliverance was not to come from some other place, but from their own heroic actions on behalf of their people . As we Americans once again find ourselves navigating antisemitism and bigotry, questioning the limits and purposes of power, reassessing gender dynamics, and grappling with how to keep an ethnically diverse empire from imploding, it is once again to Esther we must turn, to the timeless scroll that continues to urge us to find strength and redemptive possibility in the least expected of places. Includes the Megilla text.

NAVI JOURNEY, MEGILLAS ESTHER H/C

Navi Journey, Megillas Esther

$18.99
More Info

The world prepared for the decree that called for the end to Hashem's holy nation.

It was a decree that was known in the heavens and the earth. The passing years in exile were counted, eagerly waiting to see if the Jewish nation would rise again and return to their land and rebuild the Beis Hamikdash. Those who hoped that the prophesy for their return to the holy land would be a lie now looked toward a new date, a date of annihilation. Haman rejoiced when his lottery for extinction fell out during a time of the year that their greatest leader was taken from them, the month of Adar, and it was also the month that even the Jewish people had suffered from the plague of darkness in Egypt. But in the end, it was the downfall for he and his people, and only light for the Jewish nation. It was a radiance that stemmed from a heartfelt teshuvah that even mirrored the devotion that was expressed by Har Sinai. Such a tremendous teshuvah was initiated, which brought on tremendous closeness between Hashem and Yisrael that caused the entire decree to be eradicated.

The heavenly influence that was procured during these days is showered down upon Yisrael every year during this time, as this closeness is awakened. The days of Purim are celebrated with simchah and tefillah, as the heartfelt tefillos are so powerful during this time that it can bring down the nation of Amalek and bring forth the coming of Mashiach immediately!

PURIM: Removing the Mask

Purim: Removing the Mask Hardcover

$18.99
More Info

Of all the masks we may encounter over the course of Purim, the most intriguing is the one worn by Purim itself…

On the one hand, Purim commemorates and celebrates the miracle that Hashem performed for the Jewish People at the time. In this retrospective sense, it faces backwards

On the other hand, however, it also faces forwards in the sense that it provides a vision toward the future. It contains many messages that reveal extremely profound concepts and fundamental truths…the festival of Purim is a time when these ideas can be encountered, accessed, and absorbed anew.

Ultimately, these two different directions do not conflict with each other, for the day of Purim is not just a historical event; it is an ongoing presence in the Jewish calendar and in its national experience.

Behind the feasting and merriment which accompany the day of Purim lie some of the most profound and meaningful ideas of Judaism. Drawing on a fascinating array of sources, renowned teacher and author Rabbi Immanuel Bernstein (author of the bestselling Teshuva, Aggadah, and Darkness to Destiny Haggadah) guides the reader on an eye-opening journey towards a deeper appreciation of the Jewish people's most colorful festival.

Approbations:

It is known that the festival of Purim is both concealed and exalted, its laws and customs are hidden and mystifying. In this unique sefer, the author explains the essence of the day as well as the avodah which accompanies it.

QUEEN YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW

The Queen You Thought You Knew

$24.95
More Info

The Book of Esther can easily masquerade as a child s tale. Theres a villain out to hang Mordechai and murder his countrymen; a king who enjoys drinking; and a beautiful and noble queen. There are assassins, palace intrigue and a climactic battle scene -- and a happy ending, to boot. What more could you ask for in a good child s story? The holiday associated with the book can seem child-like, too. Purim is celebrated with costumes, carnivals, and abundant merriment. Kids dress up as Esther, Mordechai, Haman and Achashveirosh, wearing plastic hats and cellophane scepters. Purim is the great holiday of make-believe. All this make believe, though, can have unintended consequences. Chief among them is the fact that many of us are likely to remain with childlike views of Purim and the Megillah long after we ve turned adults. Our perspective upon Mordechai and Esther and their struggle can easily remain as one-dimensional as the face paint we use to impersonate these people in costume. In this book, Rabbi Fohrman invites the reader to look at the Book of Esther with fresh eyes; to join him, as it were, on a guided adventure -- a close reading of the ancient biblical text. In so doing, he reveals another Purim story; a richer, deeper narrative more suited perhaps, to the eyes of an adult than to a child. As layers of meaning are gradually revealed, Esther's hidden story comes alive in a vibrant, unexpected way -- offering the reader a fascinating and stirring encounter with the queen whose costume they wore as children -- the queen they thought they knew.
