Feldheim Introduces Collection of New and Noteworthy Titles

From the inhumanity of Soviet Russia to the holiness of Yerushalayim, Rav Yitzchak Zilber lived a life of total devotion to Torah. (People are familiar with his life from the best-selling biography “To Remain a Jew.”) Gathered in this volume are hundreds of stories, anecdotes and vignettes of firsthand encounters, told by students and those close to him, that provide readers with an illuminating glimpse into a life of unswerving emunah, superlative midot and unparalleled love for all Jews.

Rabbi Bodner’s previous works (“Halachos of Brochos,” “Halachos of Muktza,” “Halachos of Refuah on Shabbos,” “Halachos of K’zayis” and “Halachos of Other People’s Money”) have become popular classics for layman and scholar alike, as they clarify and simplify difficult halachos, making them relevant to common everyday situations. This new sefer addresses the unique brochos that accentuate all the special times that highlight the Jewish year: Yomim Tovim, fast days, Hallel, Kiddush Levona, Shehecheyonu, HaTov V’hamaytiv and much more. This authoritative, 750-page guide, is written in the author’s clear, inimitable style, along with extensive source material at the bottom of every page.

Jewish life abounds with a rich array of glorious minhagim, but what are their origins? Where are the sources? What measure of meaning or validity do they have? This fascinating book explores all this and more, from the halachos of minhag, communal and family minhagim, to a broad selection of seasonal minhagim, complete with footnotes and source material. Here is a fascinating resource designed to help us better understand and appreciate this magnificent facet of Jewish life.

A memoir lovingly written by Dr. Mordachai Buchie Soroka chronicles the unbelievable journey of his father’s struggle to survive: escaping the Nazis, crossing Asiatic Russia into China and Japan, to suffer over three years of Japanese internment in the Philippines, and even after the war, to endure the relentless challenges of the U.S. State Department. Filled with amazing experiences, unflinching faith, courage and determination, the narrative power of this remarkable, panoramic story will draw you in, mesmerize and inspire you, from first page to last.

In this volume (#7 of the Collected Writings of Rabbi S.R. Hirsch), Rav Hirsch outlines his educational philosophy “Torah im Derech Eretz” as a guiding principle for Jewish life in all its aspects—for an individual in his daily life, for communal organizations, for social and political interactions with the world at large, for business and career decisions and for the education of the young and old. This important volume is now available as a separate volume.

Personality differences can oftentimes serve as a barrier to harmony at home or cooperation in the workplace. Rabbi Shimon Gruen’s innovative guide combines a unique understanding of the four basic personality types with tools, techniques and positive practices that offer a more sensitive and skillful way of dealing with people, resulting in improved relationships, be it with a spouse, family members, co-workers, neighbors or friends.
