[Yalkut] MeAm Lo'ez  (also known as Torah Anthology)

MeAm Lo'ez Torah CommentaryThe Torah Anthology is a clear, modern translation of MeAm Lo'ez, hailed as "the outstanding work of Ladino literature." Written by Rabbi Yaakov Culi, one of the greatest Sephardic sages of his time, the book was first published in 1730. It changed the spiritual climate of the entire Mediterranean region.

Eastern Jews esteemed MeAm Lo'ez as a major classic, affording it the same status as the Talmud and Mishnah. Reading it each day was a religious duty; it was a highly popular text for synagogue classes held each evening.
Many count MeAm Lo'ez among the best commentaries ever written on the Torah - in any language. The book is a veritable encyclopedia of Jewish knowledge.  Translated by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan

Available as a 20 set volume or by individual book.





Torah Commentary By Rabbi Bachya ben Asher

Torah Commentary by Rabbi Bachya ben AsherBachya ben Asher (1255-1340), a younger contemporary of Nachmanides, was one of the most prolific biblical exegetes of his era. In addition to his many scholarly writings, he functioned as a dayan (judge) and preacher in his hometown of Saragossa, Spain.

In this 7 vol. commentary on the Torah, which has already inspired ten super-commentaries based on it, Rabbi Bachya is the first scholar to present a commentary along the four-fold method of interpretation known as PaRDeS, a Hebrew acronym for peshat (the simple, direct meaning of the text), remez (philosophical interpretation), drash (homiletical treatment), and sod (mystical probing). The English translation and the annotations are by the scholar Eliyahu Munk.

The Midrash Says

The Midrash SaysFollowing the order of the weekly Torah readings, these volumes presents a lively narration of the Torah. They are compiled from material found both in the aggadot of the Talmud and in the Midrashim. In addition to the major Midrashim, Rabba and Tanchuma, this composition includes others from rare Midrashic sources whic are being made available in the English language for the first time.

These books does not constitute a translation, but rather an adaptation of the Midrashim. The author's goal was to capture the spirit behind the Midrashim and present the ideas in a meaningful way, as explained by the classical commentaries of the Talmud and Midrash. A great part of its philosophy was drawn from the profound 18 volume commentary on Midrash Rabbah, "Tiferet Tzion," written by the renowned Jerusalem scholar, R' Yitzchak Z'ev Yadler (1843-1917).

Can be purchased in a set of 5 volumes or by individual book.

Shemoneh Esrei

Shemoneh EsreiIn the lexicon of Judaism, tefillah-prayer refers to the Shemoneh Esrei (or Amidah). Composed by the Men of the Great Assembly in the early years of the Second Temple era, and recited at least three times a day, this prayer is the bedrock of devotion. What does it mean? How are we to align our minds and hearts with its message? How are we to interpret its messages in terms of our daily lives and individual needs? How does Shemoneh Esrei address the conditions and tribulations of modern life?

This work responds to all these questions on a popular yet scholarly level. Interpretation, exhortation, anecdotes, counsel, halacha - all these ingredients are expertly blended in this gem of liturgical exposition.

The Sweetest Hour - Tikkun Chatzot

The Sweetest HourCompiled and translated by Avraham Greenbaum.  How much do we really care that after almost 2,000 the Temple is still in ruins?  Would we be willing to lose a little sleep over it to "rise and cry out in the night?"  In Jewish tradition, the small hours of the night (chatzot) are especially propitious for prayer, and thus an appropriate time to contemplate the Jewish exile and yearn for redemption, collective and personal.

This book explains the meaning and purpose of Tikkun Chatzot. It also contains the first complete English translation of this moving service, together with detailed guidance as to when and how to say it.

Rebbe Nachman of Breslov thought that any Jew no matter what level he is on should try his hardest to rise each and every single night and recite Tikkun Chatzot. Tikkun Chatzot is made up of Two Parts Tikkun Rachel and Tikkun Leah. Tikkun Rachel Is Said sitting on the Floor (not directly on the floor one should place something on the floor to sit on) and if possible place ashes on the head on the place where men put on tefillin. Tikkun Leah is said after getting off the floor.

Shabbos - The Sabbath: Its Essence and Significance

Shabbos / The Sabbath, Its Essence & Significance The Sages teach that when the Six Days of Creation were over, everything in the universe was in place. What was the world lacking? Only one thing - it lacked the contentment of a genuine, spiritual rest day, a contentment that could replenish the human spirit and bear testimony to the Architect and Creator of all that was. When the Sabbath came; contentment came. Our weekly Sabbath is a regular renewal of that final necessary aspect of Creation; our renewed acknowledgment of Him Who made all and grants us a share of the World to Come on earth, every seventh day.

Drawn from the rich lodes of Jewish through and practice, the book will help the reader enter the joy and holiness of the Sabbath, for the better we understand the deeper content of the day and what it represents, the better we enter into its higher universe.
