  • Being Jewish Today

    $20.00

    A Bloomsbury Continuum Title

    This is a book which understands and faces the impact of modernity on the Jewish community today.

    Being Jewish Today gives an account of both the journey of a particular British Jew and the journey of millions of women and men through today’s perplexing and difficult world. With honesty and integrity Rabbi Tony Bayfield breaks new ground in exploring the meaning of Jewish identity and its relationship to Jewish tradition and belief. He does so from the perspective of a person fully integrated into the modern Western world. The rigorous questions he asks of his Jewishness, Judaism and the Jewish God are therefore substantially the same as those asked by individuals of all faiths and none.

    Beginning with an account of the journey of Jewish people and thought from ancient times to the present day, Bayfield goes on to consider Jewish identity, Israel as land and the scourge of anti-Semitism. He then turns to the twin concerns of Torah: Halakhah – practice, and Aggadah – ethics, along with the matter of belief in a world faced with global extinction. Finally, in addressing the manifest injustice of life, Rabbi Bayfield confronts the widely evaded questions of universal suffering and divine inaction.

    Drawing on key religious and secular thinkers who contribute to the force of his argument, Bayfield’s masterful, challenging and urgent book will appeal to all Jews, whether religious or cultural, and to anyone curious about the nature of Judaism and religion today.

This book will present the concepts of sin and failure in Jewish thought, weaving together biblical and rabbinic studies to reveal a holistic portrait of the notion of sin and failure within Jewish thought.

  • Discovering Second Temple Literature

    $29.95

    Jewish Publication Society

    Exploring the world of the Second Temple period (539 BCE-70 CE), in particular the vastly diverse stories, commentaries, and other documents written by Jews during the last three centuries of this period, Malka Z. Simkovich takes us to Jerusalem, Alexandria, and Antioch, to the Jewish sectarians and the Roman-Jewish historian Josephus, to the Cairo genizah, and to the ancient caves that kept the secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls. As she recounts Jewish history during this vibrant, formative era, Simkovich analyzes some of the period’s most important works for both familiar and possible meanings.

    This volume interweaves past and present in four parts. Part 1 tells modern stories of discovery of Second Temple literature. Part 2 describes the Jewish communities that flourished both in the land of Israel and in the Diaspora. Part 3 explores the lives, worldviews, and significant writings of Second Temple authors. Part 4 examines how authors of the time introduced novel, rewritten, and expanded versions of Bible stories in hopes of imparting messages to the people.

    Simkovich’s popular style will engage readers in understanding the sometimes surprisingly creative ways Jews at this time chose to practice their religion and interpret its scriptures in light of a cultural setting so unlike that of their Israelite forefathers. Like many modern Jews today, they made an ancient religion meaningful in an ever-changing world.

  • Your Word Is Fire 2nd Edition

    $16.99

    A fully updated and revised edition of a classic text on Jewish prayer.

    The power of prayer for spiritual renewal and personal transformation is at the core of all religious traditions. Because Hasidic literature contains no systematic manual of contemplative prayer, the texts included in this volume have been culled from many sources. From the teachings of the Hasidic Masters–the Ba’al Shem Tov, the Maggid Dov Baer of Meidzyrzec, and their immediate disciples–the editors have gleaned “hints as to the various rungs of inner prayer and how they are attained.”

    Hasidism, the Jewish revivalist movement that began in the late eighteenth century, saw prayer as being at the heart of religious experience and was particularly concerned with the nature of a person’s relationship with God. The obstacles to prayer discussed by the Hasidic masters–distraction, loss of spirituality, and inconstancy of purpose–feel very close to concerns of our own age. Through advice, parables, and explanations, the Hasidic masters of the past speak to our own attempts to find meaning in prayer.

    Further Readings

    Additional Info
    Do you want to understand Jesus of Nazareth, his apostles, and the rise of early Christianity? Reading the Old Testament is not enough, writes Matthias Henze in this slender volume aimed at the student of the Bible. To understand the Jews of the Second Temple period, it’s essential to read what they wrote-and what Jesus and his followers might have read-beyond the Hebrew scriptures. Henze introduces the four-century gap between the Old and New Testaments and some of the writings produced during this period (different Old Testaments, the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, the Dead Sea Scrolls); discusses how these texts have been read from the Reformation to the present, emphasizing the importance of the discovery of Qumran; guides the student’s encounter with select texts from each collection; and then introduces key ideas found in specific New Testament texts that simply can’t be understood without these early Jewish “intertestamental” writings-the Messiah, angels and demons, the law, and the resurrection of the dead. Finally, he discusses the role of these writings in the “parting of the ways” between Judaism and Christianity. Mind the Gap broadens curious students’ perspectives on early Judaism and early Christianity and welcomes them to deeper study.

  • Me Myself And God

    $19.99

    By letting go of our old notions of reality, we can recognize the undivided nature of the world and enter into a transformative divine awareness.

    “Instead of conceptualizing the Divine Presence, analyzing it, or talking about it, we rather strive to experience it moment by moment in our lives. Any moment we open our hearts to the Divine Presence, any moment we experience it, we cultivate a loving relationship to All That Is. If this book has one lesson to offer, it is this: what we need to do is to strive to overcome the sense of separation through clear seeing…. Once we have done that, there is nothing left but love.”

    -from Chapter 7

    Many of our human existential struggles stem from the sense of disconnection, alienation and loneliness that comes from a fragmented view of reality. Drawing on the insight and audacity of Jewish mystics, and rooted in a rich understanding of Torah, Rabbi Jeff Roth helps us overcome this sense of separation and reconnect with a more harmonious flow of life. He equips spiritual seekers of all faiths-or none-with powerful techniques rooted in Jewish mystical practices and mindfulness meditation.

  • Encountering God : El Rachum V’chanun God Merciful And Gracious

    $27.99

    It is time to recover rabbinic lessons of late antiquity: God is a God of grace and love; human beings can aspire to goodness and promise; on Yom Kippur the two of them meet-God’s love energizes human potential and the world is reborn with hope restored.

    The God of Jewish tradition is far from the strict God of justice commonly understood to be the God of the Hebrew Bible. God’s self-introduction to Moses atop Mount Sinai does indeed conclude with the image of punishment throughout the generations but begins with “God merciful and gracious,” the imagery that finds its way into rabbinic liturgy and lore as solely the God of grace and compassion, pardon and love.

    To arrive at this selective perception of biblical tradition, the Rabbis of the Talmud deliberately misread the biblical text, and then fashioned a myth of God who dresses up as a leader of prayer and promises pardon if Israel will only repeat these merciful attributes as part of its prayer ritual on that day. Ever since, the Thirteen Attributes-as the list comes to be known-becomes central to Jewish prayer, accompanying the liturgy for holidays generally, and framing the opening and closing services of the holiest day in the Jewish year, Yom Kippur, the “Day of Judgment” itself.

    In this seventh volume in the Prayers of Awe Series, contributors-men and women, rabbis and laypeople, scholars and artists from across the spectrum of Jewish life, and representing the US, Israel, the UK, Germany, France, Canada, and Australia-chart the importance of these Thirteen Attributes of God. They explore the kind of God Jews meet in prayer and the consequent self-reflection about the human condition that Judaism recommends on the basis of its idealized image of God as, above all, merciful and gracious.

  • Becoming A Soulful Educator

    $18.99

    Wake up, educators! Move beyond conveying information, beyond the classroom, to engaging the soul.

    “We ask you to take a step back from your teaching, to take a long hard look at the impact you are making-versus the impact you want to make, the impact you became a teacher to make. And if you, like so many of us, find a disconnect between the two, we offer suggestions to help you grow as an educator, to become a soulful educator.”

    -from “Who Is This Book For?”

    This is the essential guidebook for everyone from educators and rabbis to parents and grandparents-anyone working in formal or informal education, whether for children, teens, emerging adults, adults or seniors.
    In this bold revisioning of effective education, renowned educator Aryeh Ben David recalibrates the focus of teaching from the acquisition of knowledge to touching the soul and impacting life. He presents six steps to help educators of all kinds teach to the heart, engage students in knowledge gathering without preaching or controlling, and enable students to authentically and personally integrate Jewish wisdom into their lives. He offers guidance for how teachers can share their own vulnerabilities and yearnings to model personal growth and help their students gain new clarity on their own infinite potential for positive change.

  • Wisdom Of Solomon And Us

    $18.99

    Can an ancient king supply a salve for our modern spiritual restlessness?

    “King Solomon wisely taught that we must live each stage of our lives in a constructive way. As long as we have goals and aspirations, we are alive; we are growing; we are using the gift of time in a meaningful way.”

    -from Chapter 1, “When There Is Life-Live!”

    Rabbi Marc D. Angel, PhD, mines the biblical literature attributed to King Solomon, the Hebrew Bible’s model of wisdom, for the answers to life’s important questions.

    Ecclesiastes-What is life’s meaning and mission? What is my significance in the vastness of space and the eternity of time?

    Proverbs-How can I help maintain a healthy society, with a focus on truth, compassion and moral courage?

    The Song of Songs-How can I achieve a genuine, soul-satisfying relationship with God?

    More than biblical commentary, Rabbi Angel shows us how Solomon’s wisdom can soothe the contemporary disquiet of all of us seeking a thoughtful, challenging and spiritually vibrant approach to life.

  • Deathbed Wisdom Of The Hasidic Masters

    $19.99

    Death is a time of life that holds meaning for the dying, their family and friends, their community-and us.

    “Most of Torah’s teaching is about how to live. But there is a special section within its wisdom that also speaks to us about how to die. Since we are all mortals, our lives fashioned somehow around the awareness that death is inevitably to come, this is one of the important lessons…. There is something profound to be learned about the way of dying, and it is best learned from the wisdom and stories of those who have gone before us.”

    -from the Foreword

    Students of the Hasidic masters wrote down the stories of the last months, days, hours and moments of the lives of their rebbes. A compilation of their experiences, called The Book of Departure (Sefer haHistalkut), first published in Hebrew in 1930, brings together the rich end-of-life stories of forty-two holy men who died between 1760 and 1904, as well as their philosophical forebearer, Isaac Luria. Featuring new pastoral commentary in a unique facing-page format, this English presentation of heart-touching deathbed tales sheds light on Jewish traditions about death, the afterlife and how to care for people in their final days.

  • When A Lie Is Not A Sin

    $18.99

    The difference between truth and falsehood is often clear and simple. But when life gets complicated, the Hebrew Bible can help.

    The Hebrew Bible is true and wants us to tell the truth, even as biblical characters behave in less than truthful ways. What’s more, where some of the lies people tell in the Hebrew Bible stories are punished, others are ignored and still others are rewarded. The Hebrew Bible’s mixed-message of “Do as I say, not as they do” shows that lies-little and big, whether told to protect or advance oneself or when intended to preserve the peace-often occur under involved circumstances and demand careful consideration. By viewing an array of situations in light of the Hebrew Bible-from the routine but delicate to the once-in-a-lifetime dilemma-this book will make a difference in how you think and live.

    This candid look at religion and truthfulness is ideal for anyone interested in exploring the religious basis for personal decision making, conscience and morality, including Jews of all denominations personally or in Torah study groups, Christians and social justice activists.

  • Successful Synagogue Fundraising Today

  • Your People Shall Be My People

    $16.00

    Updated and Expanded Edition of a Landmark Text on an Urgent Topic

    Now updated and expanded, this landmark text reveals God’s purposes for his covenant people in these times–and how this revelation is impacting the church. Unlike Ruth in the Old Testament, many of us have turned our backs on the Jewish people, the relatives of the Messiah, and we share the collective guilt for centuries of their persecution. These pages remind us that now, more than ever, we must confess, embrace, and intercede for the chosen people of God, aligning our prayers with God’s plan.

    Once again, Israel and her people are center stage at a crucial moment in world history, and this book shows why the church must effect reconciliation and why our prayers are vital in this hour. If we will make the same covenant pledge to Israel that Ruth made to Naomi, the church will never be the same!

  • Finding Recovery And Yourself In Torah

In it are the remedies for all spiritual maladies-we just have to probe the text, dig deeply in it and drink of its life-giving waters.”

    -from the Foreword

    In this soul-restoring resource, Rabbi Mark Borovitz combines his knowledge of Judaism and his experience as a leader in the field of recovery to help you find in the Five Books of Moses the deeper meaning, wisdom and guidance for living well in the moment.

  • God Was In This Place And I I Did Not Know

    $21.99

    “A profound exploration of the necessity of paying attention to God’s presence.”
    -Library Journal

    In a daring blend of scholarship and imagination, psychology and history, Lawrence Kushner gathers an inspiring range of interpretations of Genesis 28:16 given by sages, from Shmuel bar Nachmani in third-century Palestine to Hannah Rachel Werbermacher of Ludomir who lived in Poland two hundred years ago. Through a fascinating new literary genre and Kushner’s creative reconstruction of the teachers’ lives and times, we enter the study halls and sit at the feet of these spiritual masters to learn what each discovered about God’s Self and ourselves as they ascend and descend Jacob’s ladder.

    In this illuminating journey-celebrated in this special 25th anniversary edition with a new preface by the author-our spiritual guides ask and answer the fundamental questions of human experience: Who am I? Who is God? What is God’s role in history? What is the nature of evil? How should I relate to God and other people? Could the universe really have a self?

  • What Every Christian Needs To Know About The Jewishness Of Jesus

    $17.99

    If you were to ask ten people, Who started Christianity? you might hear ten voices giving the same quick response: Jesus. But those ten people would be wrong. Jesus wasn’t a Christian.

Walking through Jesus’ life from birth to death, Rabbi Evan Moffic serves as a tour guide to give Christians a new way to look at familiar teachings and practices that are rooted in the Jewish faith and can illuminate our lives today. Moffic gives fresh insight on how Jesus’ contemporaries understood him, explores how Jesus’ Jewishness shaped him, offers a new perspective on the Lord’s Prayer, and provides renewed appreciation for Jesus’ miracles. In encountering his Jewish heritage, you will see Jesus differently, gain a better understanding of his message, and enrich your own faith.

  • Hidden Inheritance

    $16.99

    Heidi Neumark’s life changed when a few computer keystrokes exposed a generation of family secrets. Late one night while her family slept, Neumark discovered her hidden Jewish heritage-and uncovered hundreds of questions: Did her grandfather really die in a concentration camp? How did she never know her grandmother was a death-camp survivor? Why had the family history and faith been rejected and hidden? Heidi’s search for the truth quickly became more than a personal journey; it also became spiritual. It caused profound ponderings on her thirty-year vocation as a Lutheran pastor. It was a shocking revelation that her Jewish roots and successive family loss and trauma now suddenly and inherently connected her to the multi-ethnic, marginalized community she had been ministering to for three decades. Hidden Inheritance takes the reader on a journey that seamlessly weaves personal narrative, social history, and biblical reflection to challenge readers to explore their own identity, vocation, and theology. Neumark boldly calls readers to explore the harsh places of the past, uncover the possible buried secrets, ask new questions, forge new understanding, and discover new hope for transformation that is only possible when what has been hidden is finally brought to light.

  • Betrothed : A Collection Of Love Stories Reflecting An Ancient Faith

    $19.95

    Olive Press Messianic (www.olivepresspublisher.com)

    Dating? Courtship? There’s something better. The current way our society prepares a single person for marriage has led to an increase in broken marriages and moral disintegration. The ten couples in this book have trailblazed a new, yet ancient and beautiful path to marriage called bethrothal. These couples’ families saw the need to go a different direction–a direction that points toward Yeshua (Jesus) and His spotless Bride. The Tommy and Sherri Waller family is well represented in these love stories. Tommy writes: “Many of these accounts are written by my own children. Their testimonies are the result of God’s mercy in making a presentation to me and my wife, Sherri, many years ago. He enabled us to see clearly that our children were at great risk … Which of our children would make it and which ones would fall? … [W]e [now] have five married children. All of them have chosen to walk through the beautiful process of betrothal. There has never been a time in my life when I have witnessed anything close to the intensity of love birthed from two undefiled hearts as I have in betrothal. Every betrothal I witness confirms in me the Father’s true grace-the unmerited favor He desires to lavish on all of us.” Brayden Waller writes: “The bridegroom heart of God is a recurring theme throughout Scripture. The Bible actually begins and ends with a wedding: first, Adam and Eve in the garden, and last, the marriage supper of the Lamb. Betrothal is an essential key to this whole story. To understand this ancient and Biblical way of marriage is to better understand the relationship we have with God. … Unlike engagement, betrothal is an actual covenant that is made prior to the wedding day … [which] is the very thing God has done with us! He has made a covenant with us by the blood of Yeshua and the wedding is yet to come. Revelation 19:7 tells us of this coming wedding, ‘Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife has made herself ready.’ … Betrothal is much further reaching than the confines of a culture. It is something that the LORD Himself participates in. He says in Hosea 2:19-20, ‘I will betroth you to Me forever, yes I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and justice, in loving kindness and mercy I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, and you will know the LORD.’ … Whether you are reading this book for the spiritual application of being

    A parallel verse-by-verse commentary on the Gospel of John from two very different perspectives and addressing two very different audiences: a Messianic Jewish Rabbi speaking to his home congregation, and a convicted felon – a Gentile – teaching a class of brand-new converts … as a prisoner himself. The Gospel of John contains some of the Bible’s best-known verses (“For God so loved the world …”) yet also some of its most profound truths. “Lifted Up” challenges conventional views of the Gospel while highlighting the power of God not only to bring His own Chosen People to faith, but also to transform lives shattered by rebellion, addiction and sin. It is a volume not to be missed by the sincere follower of the First-Century Jewish Rabbi most of us call Jesus, whose Hebrew name is Yeshua.

  • Leadership By Anointing

    $16.49

    The world’s system is being shaken. Tenets of leadership considered benchmarks are undergoing reevaluation. One of the biggest challenges for Christian leaders, especially within the marketplace, is the balance between functioning in their own ability and yielding to God’s headship as leaders. For many, the acceptable inclination is blending their “natural abilities” and what has been gleaned from the world’s system, with an icing of polite ethics and a “praise the Lord.” Yet, the heroes of faith reversed the equation. Having heard from God, they harnessed their natural abilities to conform to and support an ongoing flow of direction and wisdom from the Lord. Everything else sprang from that. It is a higher standard. During turbulent times, it is back to basics. What endures is drawn from God’s truth. Leadership by Anointing uncovers the principles, pathways and models of biblical leadership in practice with God’s covenant people over the centuries.

    Between the years 1550 and 1650, Italy’s Jewish intellectuals created a unique and enduring synthesis of the great literary and philosophical heritage of the Andalusian Jews and the Renaissance’s renewal of perspective. While remaining faithful to the beliefs, behaviours and language of their tradition, Italian Jews proved themselves to open a rapidly evolving world of great richness. This book explores the complex relations between Jews and the world that surrounded them during a critical period of European civilization. The relations were rich, problematic, and in some cases strained, alternating between opposition and dialogue, osmosis and distinction.

  • Destruction Of An Entire Nation

    The destruction of the city of Jerusalem is a famously significant historical event. However, for reasons unknown, history has omitted the first-hand accounts of one man who experienced the entire war. This destruction was foretold by Jesus Christ, and was written about in the book of Josephus, a Jewish High Priest, president, and General of the Jewish army. Josephus was taken by the Romans and held as a prisoner of war, during which time he kept detailed accounts of the battles and what followed after. In this book, Mr. Sims describes, in wonderful detail, the intense battles between the Romans and the Jews which would eventually determine the fate of the city of Jerusalem.

    A Rabbi Reads the Torah distils a lifetime of Bible study by a Jewish scholar devoted to popularising the study of the Hebrew Bible in its original language, helped by the wealth of centuries of Jewish interpretation and debate, as well as the best of modern literary approaches. The Jewish tradition of reading a section of the Torah, the Five Books of Moses, on a weekly basis during the course of single year, is a challenge to find something new each time in a familiar text. These short studies, based on a popular radio series, offer unexpected insights into the very different materials to be found in these Biblical books, as well as indicating their relevance to the realities of personal, social and political life today. Rabbi Magonets personal engagement in interfaith dialogue opens the world of Jewish tradition to the widest audience of those within and beyond our different faith communities.

  • Ezekiels Temple : A Scriptural Framework Illustrating The Covenant Of Grace

    $12.49

    EZEKIEL’S TEMPLE A Scriptural Framework Illustrating THE Covenant of Grace Bible readers have long pondered the complicated Temple vision in Ezekiel’s last nine chapters. In an attempt to explain why this vision is in the Bible, this study focuses especially on what the prophet was explicitly told to show Israel-the Temple’s “design,” “plan,” or “layout,” and in particular its “exits and entrances” (Ezek. 43:11). In these pages, a practicing professional architect who has pondered the Temple for some five decades shows how Ezekiel’s mysterious “plan,” with its complex system of “exits and entrances,” presents in symbolic forms a stunning visual portrait of God’s eternal Covenant with Israel and-through that-the work of Messiah. Emil Heller Henning III was born in Boston in 1946, educated in the Baltimore Public Schools, and holds A.B. and Master of Architecture degrees from Washington University in St. Louis. He worked one summer in graduate school for a Boston firm that pioneered “wayfinding” concepts to help people navigate subway systems and sprawling building complexes. While there he assisted in the design of orientation maps and signs for a campus of over 100 interconnected buildings. For three years he was a Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, after which he worked for architecture firms in North and South Carolina. He is today a Registered Architect in South Carolina, where he has a small architectural practice and serves as a Ruling Elder at Second Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Greenville, S.C.

    $32.00

    Jesus was a Jew and not a Christian. That affirmation may seem obvious, but here an international cast of Jewish and Christian scholars spell out its weighty and often complex consequences for contemporary Jewish-Christian dialogue. Soundings in the Religion of Jesus contextualizes Jesus and the writings about him that set the stage for Jewish-Christian relations for the next two thousand years.

    Of equal importance, this book considers the reception, celebration, and (too often) the neglect of Jesus’ Jewishness in modern contexts and the impact such responses have had for Jewish-Christian relations. Topics explored include the ethics of scriptural translation, the ideological motives of Nazi theologians and other “quests” for the Historical Jesus, and the ways in which New Testament portraits of Jesus both help and hurt authentic Jewish-Christian dialogue.

  • Survey Of The Tanach For The Practical Messianic

    $21.99

    One of the major reasons that today’s Messianic movement has grown in the past decade is a significant interest by Believers in the Torah and the Tanach. In too many cases, the Tanach Scriptures were not probed in that great a detail in a Jewish Believer’s traditional Synagogue upbringing-and perhaps more serious, a non-Jewish Believer’s Christian experience often witnessed the Old Testament taking a back seat to the New Testament in the Church. With many of the ethical and moral controversies the greater Judeo-Christian religious community is experiencing in our age, a need for God’s people to return to a foundational grounding in the Tanach Scriptures is absolutely imperative. The Old Testament cannot simply be disregarded any more. Many have stayed away from consulting the Tanach not because of a lack of interest, but because few want to have to deal with the controversies it addresses. Unlike the Apostolic Scriptures, constrained to the First Century C.E., the period of the Tanach stretches back all the way to the beginning of the universe itself. Questions like: Who was the Pharaoh of the Exodus? Did God actually condone the genocide of the Canaanites? and Am I the only one who thinks the Prophets are mentally disturbed? are debates that many people do not want to enter into. Even more significant is the effect of critical scholarship which has attempted to divide the Torah into non-Mosaic sources, question the inspiration and historical reliability of the text, and even regard much of the Tanach as Ancient Israel’s mythology. For a Messianic movement that claims to place a high value on the Tanach, it is time that we join in to these conversations. A Survey of the Tanach for the Practical Messianic takes you through the Old Testament from a distinct Messianic point of view. It presents a theologically conservative perspective of the books of the Tanach, but one that does not avoid some of the controversies that have existed in Biblical scholarship for over one hundred and fifty years. The student, in company with his or her study Bible, is asked to read through each text of the Tanach, jotting down characters, place names, key ideas, and reflective questions. Each book of the Old Testament is then summarized for its compositional data and asks you questions to get a good Messianic feel for the text. This workbook can be used for both personal and group study, and will be a valuable aid for any Messianic Believer wanting to study the whole Bible on a

  • Survey Of The Apostolic Scriptures For The Practical Messianic

    $17.99

    As a Messianic Believer, do you have a problem reading the New Testament? When you read the Apostolic Scriptures, are you confused when you encounter the Gospels, Acts, or Epistles? Have you possibly been taught that the “New Testament” replaces the “Old Testament,” and that there are contradictions between the two, only to be reconciled by the coming of Yeshua? Do you have difficulty reconciling the words of the Torah to Yeshua, Peter, Paul, John, and the other Apostles? If you have ever asked any of these questions, it is time that you receive a re-introduction to the Apostolic Scriptures. These texts record the ministry and teachings of Yeshua the Messiah, the history of the First Century Messianic community, and the challenges that the early Believers in Yeshua faced. These texts are not contrary to the Torah, but do continue God’s progressive story that begins in Genesis. They have valuable lessons that every Messianic Believer and Messianic congregation must learn in this hour, as the Messianic community grows and matures. A Survey of the Apostolic Scriptures for the Practical Messianic takes you on a journey through the New Testament from a distinct Messianic point of view.

  • Tomorrows Synagogues Today

    $17.00

    In the past decade many intelligent people who care deeply about synagogues have written about them. So how is this book different from all other books?

    Many books take the overall mission of the synagogue as a given, and the recommendations around structure are really about incremental change. Tomorrow’s Synagogue Today stimulates the reader to unleash the power of synagogues to exponentially influence people’s Jewish lives.

    Herring offers creative scenarios to stretch the imagination about how more synagogues could become vibrant centers of Jewish life and how congregational leaders can begin to chart a new course toward achieving that goal. Key to his vision are the ways synagogues can collaborate with other synagogues and other Jewish institutions in the local Jewish community and around the globe, as well as with organizations outside of the Jewish community.

    Herring also explores structural change that is occurring in the rabbinate, as well as future roles rabbis may play and how rabbis might begin preparing for that future now. He shares insights from twelve rabbis from across the country about new models of synagogue mission, governance, and organization. He concludes with recommendations about the kinds of investments those who care about synagogues and the Jewish future need to make so that synagogues will remain a significant force in the Jewish community.

    Marc Ellis maintains that the most vital questions about Judaism are prefigured in the work of Elie Wiesel, Martin Buber, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Hannah Arendt, and Emmanuel Levinas. Ellis’s work is framed by encounters with each thinker’s work, focusing on topics of God, the Holocaust, the prophetic legacy, philosophical and ethical standpoints, and Jewish empowerment and dissent.

    Two generations after the Holocaust and Israel’s founding, Ellis argues that the uncertain future of Judaism requires a deeply personal and intellectual exploration of Jewish tradition and identity, in conversation with the best philosophical and theological minds of recent years.

  • Faygala Yiddish Refugee

    $10.45

    Olive Press Publisher (www.olivepresspublisher.com)

    Publisher Marketing: Faygala, age 17, lived in Russia in 1904 in troubled times when the Cossack soldiers periodically ransacked her Jewish village; and the Czar’s officers periodically raided to seize men for the army. To avoid all this, many fled to America. Faygala’s family was planning to join her father in the “golden country” as soon as he sent enough money for ship and train passages and for Ellis Island fees and proof of support requirements. But suddenly due to personal danger, Faygala was forced to make the daunting journey alone with people she barely knew. Departing was extremely painful for her, especially leaving a certain young man behind. The thought of never seeing him again tore at her heart. Along the way she faced many difficulties causing her to fear she would never reach her dear father. This 94 page novelette is written by Faygala’s late daughter-in-law from the account as Faygala told it over the years. It draws the reader into her poverty stricken, Orthodox Jewish life in Russia; introduces her Yiddish vocabulary; and instills the amazement she felt upon seeing all the wonders of “modern” America.

  • Traditions Of The Rabbis From The Era Of The New Testament Volume 2A

    $63.50

    The second volume of early rabbinic traditions and their relevance to the New Testament

    In this second volume of his monumental study of early rabbinic traditions and their relevance to the New Testament, David Instone-Brewer provides significant insights into Jewish thought and practice prior to the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 c.e.

    For each rabbinic tradition considered — here, the Feasts and Sabbaths — the supporting Hebrew source text is provided side by side with an English translation. Instone-Brewer also presents evidence that exists for accurately dating these sources, which is a critical task recently advanced by modern dating techniques. He goes on to thoroughly discuss the meaning and importance of each rabbinic tradition for Second Temple Judaism, also analyzing any echoes or direct appearances of the tradition in the New Testament writings.

  • Children During The Holocaust

    $59.00

    Children during the Holocaust, from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, tells the story of the Holocaust through the eyes, and fates, of its youngest victims.

    The ten chapters follow the arc of the persecutory policies of the Nazis and their sympathizers and the impact these measures had on Jewish children and adolescents-from the years leading to the war, to the roundups, deportations, and emigrations, to hidden life and death in the ghettos and concentration camps, and to liberation and coping in the wake of war. This volume examines the reactions of children to discrimination, the loss of livelihood in Jewish homes, and the public humiliation at the hands of fellow citizens and explores the ways in which children’s experiences paralleled and diverged from their adult counterparts. Additional chapters reflect upon the role of non-Jewish children as victims, perpetrators, and bystanders during World War II.

    Offering a collection of personal letters, diaries, court testimonies, government documents, military reports, speeches, newspapers, photographs, and artwork, Children during the Holocaust highlights the diversity of children’s experiences during the nightmare years of the Holocaust.

  • Rabbi Looks At Jesus Of Nazareth

    $16.00

    Messianic Rabbi Shares Compelling Case for Jesus as Messiah

    Raised in a traditional Jewish family, international television host Jonathan Bernis was taught from a young age that “Jews don’t-and can’t!-believe in Jesus.” Yet in his study of the Bible, including the Torah, he found overwhelming evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really was the Jewish Messiah.

    With warmth and transparency, Bernis talks about discovering Jesus in history, too, and how it was that the Jewish Yeshua became the Gentile Jesus. By presenting historic evidence that Jesus is Messiah and refuting common Jewish objections, Bernis gives Christians the knowledge and tools they need to share their Lord with their Jewish friends in a loving, effective way.

  • Historical Dictionary Of The Jews

    $81.00

    The Historical Dictionary of the Jews presents the history of the Jewish people and their religious culture in a way that makes clear how and why this small, ancient people have survived nearly four millennia and managed to play such an important role in the world-well out of proportion to their population. The Jews trace their origins far back in history to the early tribes of Judah and Moses. Over the centuries, they spread across much of the Western world, as well as into parts of Africa and Asia, until they were crushed by the Holocaust and were forced to find refuge in the United States and the new state of Israel. Because of that horrific event, of the estimated 15 million Jews living today, approximately six million reside in Israel, with almost the same number living in the United States, making these two countries the main center of Jewish life today.

    This ready reference tells the history of the Jewish people through a detailed chronology, an introductory essay, an extensive bibliography, and over 200 cross-referenced dictionary entries on significant persons, places, events, institutions, and aspects of culture, society, economy, and politics. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about the Jewish people.

  • Neat Jewish Stuff For Christians

    $14.99

    Have you ever wondered why the Bible is so, well, Jewish?

    God revealed His character and his plan for the world through His chosen people, the Jews. It was through the line of Abraham that the Bible was written. It was from this same line that Jesus was born. It was from the Jews that Jesus called his disciples, and out of Judaism the early church was born.

    Neat Jewish Stuff for Christians reveals many facets of ancient Jewish religious and cultural life which Jesus used to help His listeners understand His teachings. Through understanding these rites and customs, God’s plan for drawing us into relationship with Him is revealed.

    Neat Jewish Stuff for Christians brings the reader to a better understanding of the Jewish roots of the Christian faith and the message of Jesus. Questions for discussion are included after each chapter. As Dr. Teitelbaum sums up: “Christians grow in worshipful appreciation of Jesus when His roots in Judaism are understood.”

  • Coached By Jesus

    $15.99

    Recent years have seen the rise of life coaches as a popular approach to personal growth. While a counselor might provide in-depth analysis, a life coach encourages the client to do the practical, productive work of grappling for answers to life’s most important questions. No one was more skilled at asking profound questions than Jesus. His questions challenged wrong thinking, penetrated the heart, and provided a catalyst for true change. Alan Nelson, Ed. D. presents thirty-one questions asked by Jesus, amplifies their meaning to clearly connect with the contemporary reader, and offers an application section to translate new thinking into new ways of living. Excellent for personal study as well as small group discussion, it capitalizes on a growing trend embraced by adults of all ages.

    Additional Info
    This book tells the little-known stories of Jewish soldiers who served in the Jewish Legions during World War I. Three all-Jewish battalions formed in the British army as part of the Allies’ Middle East campaign, recruiting soldiers from the United States, Canada, England, and Argentina. Many of the soldiers were displaced immigrants or children of such immigrants, and they ranged widely in education level, social class, and combat experience. Together, they coalesced into the all-Jewish battalions that were bestowed the image of “liberators of the promised land.”

    The ranks of the Jewish Legions included some who would become prominent leaders, such as David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, and Yitzhak Ben-Zvi, Israel’s second president. This book focuses on the experiences of ordinary soldiers who fought alongside them. Drawing on diaries, memoirs and letters, the book follows their journey at sea through unrestricted submarine warfare; by trains and trucks through Europe, Egypt, and Palestine; and their battlefield experiences. The authors show how these Yiddish-speaking young men forged a new kind of soldier identity with unique Jewish features, as well as an evolving sense of nationalism.

  • Messiah : His Comings

    $14.99

    The Messiah

    The author of this book, The Messiah, wishes to extend an invitation to all Jews to reconsider what the Lord God’s prophets of old had to say relative to the promised Messiah. Is He to be the One who would come strictly as a conquering hero after the similitude of King David or is He, in fact, One Who is even more powerful than that: One Who could not only conquer death but One who could put away even sin for all eternity? Just how big (or small) is the Jewish Messiah?

    The author would also like to extend an invitation to all believers to reconsider realistically a variety of factors, not the least being the Blessed Hope, which hinge and revolve around and upon the seven major Festivals of the Jewish faith. Yeshua Himself said, “Think not that I have come to destroy the law or the prophets: I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. For truly I say unto you, ‘Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.'” (Matthew 5:17-18) The seven basic festivals of the Jewish faith are a major part of the law and the prophets.

    Yeshua has fulfilled to the very day the first four festivals and shortly He shall fulfill the last three festivals to the day!

    Perhaps even more important, the author would like to extend to the nonbeliever an invitation to reconsider, in light of all eternity, the path upon which has been chosen. Yeshua extends the following invitation to one and everyone irregardless:

    “Come now, and let us reason together…though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” (Isaiah 1:18)

  • After The Girls Club

    $85.00

    After World War II, the Girls Club of Brooklyn, New York, became both home and safe haven to orphaned teenagers who were Holocaust survivors. They are a small group, but taken together these women’s stories represent the broad range of experiences that most Jews suffered during and after the Holocaust. Some endured the ghettos and camps. Some survived in hiding, with partisans, or in the remote far-eastern reaches of the Soviet Union. Consequently this collective, personal history-enriched with relevant information about places, people, events and issues-tells not only their story, but also the story of tens of thousands of child survivors.

    The work of scholars from various disciplines and genres provides background information and historical detail as this book traces the women’s experiences from their childhood days in pre-war Europe to the present. Contrary to what early literature on child survivors predicted, they built successful lives in America.

  • Why Study Talmud In The 20 First Century

    $90.00

    The Talmud is the repository of thousands of years of Jewish wisdom. It is a conglomerate of law, legend, and philosophy, a blend of unique logic and shrewd pragmatism, of history and science, of anecdotes and humor. Unfortunately, its sometimes complex subject matter often seems irrelevant in today’s world. In this edited volume, sixteen eminent North American and Israeli scholars from several schools of Jewish thought grapple with the text and tradition of Talmud, talking personally about their own reasons for studying it.

    Each of these scholars and teachers believes that Talmud is indispensible to any serious study of modern Judaism and so each essay challenges the reader to engage in his or her own individual journey of discovery. The diverse feminist, rabbinic, educational, and philosophical approaches in this collection are as varied as the contributors’ experiences. Their essays are accessible, personal accounts of their individual discovery of the Talmud, reflecting the vitality and profundity of modern religious thought and experience.

  • History Versus Apologetics

    $50.99

    Set within the context of the political and ideological developments of the time, History vs. Apologetics examines the role played by the Catholic Church in the rise and consolidation of the Third Reich and in particular with regard to the Nazi persecution of the Jews. Distanced in the beginning, the Catholic Church and the Nazi party drew closer as Hitler’s popularity increased. At the ratification of the Concordat in Rome, a commitment not to interfere with the Nazis’ “Final Solution” to the “Jewish Question” was traded for a verbal promise from Berlin to exclude the baptized converts. While the Nazi government violated the Concordat at every turn, the Church kept zealously its promise. Pope Pius XII never mentioned the persecuted Jews by name and denied any knowledge of the annihilation of the Jews. Even after the war, Pius XII refused to condemn anti-Semitism and Germany’s role in the Holocaust. Instead, the Vatican engaged in the protection of genocide perpetrators and assisted in their mass escape.

    David Cymet’s comprehensive critical analysis of the polemical literature on the topic makes it possible to separate legitimate history from apologetic allegations and misrepresentations, bringing to light key elements of Church policy that is intentionally misinterpreted by apologists. By surveying the Church’s policy from just before the rise of Nazism to the present, Cymet demonstrates how the Nazis were able to turn the Catholic Church into their ally in their war against the Jews.

  • Perspectives On Jewish Music

    $88.00

    Perspectives on Jewish Music presents five unique and engaging explorations of Jewish music. Areas covered include self-expression in contemporary Jewish secular music, the rise of popular music in the American synagogue, the theological requirements of the cantor, the role of women in Sephardic music and society, and the personal reflections of a leading figure in American synagogue music. Its wide-ranging topics and disciplinary approaches give evidence for the centrality of music in Jewish religious and secular life, and demonstrate that Jewish music is as diverse as the Jews themselves. From these studies, readers will gain an appreciation of both what Jewish music is and what it does.

    This book will be useful for students, practitioners, and scholars of Jewish secular and religious music and Jewish cultural studies, as well as ethnomusicologists specializing in Jewish or religious music.

    Additional Info
    In this first comprehensive history in English of the Jews of Hebron, Jerold S. Auerbach explores one of the oldest and most vilified Jewish communities in the world. Spanning three thousand years, from the biblical narrative of Abraham’s purchase of a burial cave for Sarah to the violent present, it offers a controversial analysis of a community located at the crossroads of the Israeli-Palestinian struggle over national boundaries and the internal Israeli struggle over the meaning of Jewish statehood.

    Hebron Jews sharply challenges conventional Zionist historiography and current media understanding by presenting a community of memory deeply embedded in Zionist history and Jewish tradition. Auerbach shows how the blending of religion and nationalism-Orthodoxy and Zionism-embodied in Hebron Jews is at the core of the struggle within Israel to define the meaning of a Jewish state.

The American university has lost its civility. Nowhere is this loss more apparent than in the rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism on college campuses. This book documents the alarming rise in bigotry and bullying in the academy, using a range of evidence from first-hand accounts of intimidation of students by anti-Israel professors to anti-Semitic articles in student newspapers and marginalization of pro-Israel scholars. The UnCivil University exposes the unspoken world of double standards, bureaucratic paralysis, and abdication of leadership that not only allows but often supports a vocal minority of extremists on campus.

    Chapter 8. Trinitarian Discourse: Doxology Born Of Remembrance

    Additional Info
    The unsettling context of late modernity, a terrain of an infinite fragmentation of life, poses a challenge to Christianity to rearticulate its defining doctrine of the Trinity. Christianity’s initial messianic weakness-in that its canonical writings attest to a universal message of redemption for the victims of Empire-was subverted into the strong theology of the Empire. This book demonstrates that Trinitarian discourse was profoundly implicated in this development as it essentially absorbed and took the bite out of the messianic language of the early Christian movement. Zathureczky proposes a retrieval of the messianic discourse of Christianity by way of recapturing its redemptive weakness. Relying on an elective affinity between Walter Benjamin’s messianism and Jurgen Moltmann Trinitarianism, he attempts to recapture the “weakness” and fragility of the language of the initial messianic impulse of the Christian community. The resulting “weak” Trinitarianism retains the basic character of Christianity as a Trinitarian faith, but now Trinitarian discourse about God is simultaneously messianic discourse, a language that is attuned to give voice to the damaged lives and alienating conditions of our contemporary context.
