New Koren Titles for the New Year

Among a number of new titles out this fall are three unique books sure to interest our readers. Short descriptions are below, and they are all available in local Jewish bookstores or from korenpub.com.

Koren Tehillim

The Rohr Family Edition, Koren, $29.95

With his modern and accessible translation, Rabbi Eli Cashdan brings out the lyrical elegance of the Psalms and offers clarity to the English reader. The text is accompanied by a sensitive analysis and commentary by JLNJ contributor Rabbi Dr. Tzvi Hersh Weinreb, a psychotherapist and the Executive Vice President Emeritus of the Orthodox Union. Rabbi Weinreb is a distinguished scholar who brings, from his many disciplines, an insightful and innovative approach to the understanding of Tehillim.

Together with the textual accuracy and aesthetic presentation for which Koren is renowned, the new Koren Tehillim has been thoughtfully designed to provide readers with a deeper connection to the ancient words and the meaning they can bring to our everyday lives.

Lessons in Leadership

Jonathan Sacks, Koren, $24.95

In this companion volume to his celebrated series “Covenant & Conversation,” Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks mines the weekly Torah portions for insights into the nature of power, authority and leadership. Based on the understanding that no man is born a leader, the book explores the principles, and perils, of becoming one. Profound, eloquent and deeply inspiring, “Lessons in Leadership” reveals the biblical secrets of influence, as relevant now as they were 3,000 years ago.

Rest for the Dove

Readings for Shabbat: Rabbi Haim Sabato, Koren, $24.95

For acclaimed novelist and Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Haim Sabato, the world of Torah literature offers an encounter with a rich culture, inspiration and ideas. In “Rest for the Dove,” Rabbi Sabato examines each Torah portion, deftly interweaving colorful threads of thought into beautifully-crafted essays.

Combining the sensitivity of a creative writer with the insight and deep roots of a rabbinic sage, Rabbi Sabato picks up on themes of the human condition as seen through the Torah narratives. Artfully translated from Hebrew, “Rest for the Dove” creates a stunning tapestry that will revitalize one’s appreciation for sophisticated Torah scholarship.
