For too many Jewish young people, bar/bat mitzvah has been the beginning of the end of their Jewish journeys. When students perceive the Torah as incomprehensible or irrelevant, many form the false impression that Judaism has nothing to say to them. Enter the game-changer: the JPS B’nai Mitzvah Torah Commentary shows teens in their own language how Torah addresses the issues in their world. The conversational tone is inviting and dignified, concise and substantial, direct and informative. The narrative summaries, “big” ideas, model divrei Torah, haftarot commentaries, and discussion questions will engage teens in studying the Torah and haftarot, in writing divrei Torah, and in continuing to learn Torah throughout their lives—making it the book every rabbi, cantor, parent, and tutor will also want to have. Jewish learning—for young people and adults—will never be the same.

For Jews everywhere, the number 18 resonates deeply: it signifies life, as does every multiple of 18. And the Hebrew word for life is Chai. In three Times Chai, 54 rabbis introduce us to favorite stories that exemplify for them a Jewish ideal or principle: a triple helping of life's blessings in one unusual anthology. Here you will find stories that inspire, teach or simply amuse, each accompanied by a note discussing the lessons that can be drawn from it and why it is a particular rabbi's favorite. Perfect for reading aloud or alone, Three Times Chai makes a wonderful gift, a valuable resource for sermons, and a singular tool for promoting thoughtful conversation in the classroom.

The Art of Jewish Pastoral Counseling provides a clear, practical guide to working with congregants in a range of settings and illustrates the skills and core principles needed for effective pastoral counseling. The material is drawn from Jewish life and rabbinic pastoral counseling, but the fundamental principles in these pages apply to all faith traditions and to a wide variety of counselling relationships. Drawing on relational psychodynamic ideas but writing in a very accessible style, Friedman and Yehuda cover when, how and why counseling may be sought, how to set up sessions, conduct the work in those sessions and deal with difficult situations, maintain confidentiality, conduct groupwork and approach traumatic and emotive subjects. They guide the reader through the foundational principles and topics of pastoral counseling and illustrate the journey with accessible and lively vignettes. By using real life examples accompanied by guided questions, the authors help readers to learn practical techniques as well as gain greater self-awareness of their own strengths and vulnerabilities. With a host of examples from pastoral and clinical experience, this book will be invaluable to anyone offering counselling to both the Jewish community and those of other faiths. The Art of Jewish Pastoral Counseling will appeal to psychoanalysts, particularly those working with Jewish clients, counselors, psychotherapists, psychoanalysts and rabbis offering pastoral counseling, as well as clergy of other faiths such as ministers, priests, imams and lay chaplains.

Pirkei Imahot is first and foremost a book about giving Jewish women a voice within our Jewish tradition. Through that voice, the reader is given an opportunity to gain new inspiration, motivation and the clarity of purpose needed to move forward to make change in a world much in need of it. Just as Pirkei Avot, the rabbinic commentary written by rabbis in the 2nd century, C.E., provided an ethical road map for the community of its day, Pirkei Imahot provides an ethical road map written by and for contemporary women today. Through the authors' own unique experiences as women, mothers, leaders and teachers in their community, and those of the many women who contributed their own words of wisdom to this book, the reader will gain wisdom on how to live morally within her community, how to participate in tikkun olam, [the repair of the world] and how to strengthen her leadership roles to make a difference. The probing questions found throughout the book provide a further opportunity, through introspection and self-examination, for the reader to learn the lessons found within the covers of this thought provoking book!
