In this anthology of comfort and healing, Rabbi Dov Peretz Elkins and Anne E. Pettit present this collection, chiseled out of the crucible of the pain of many hands – some from years past, others more recent, some from cavernous voids, others from lesser degrees of sorrow. It is their hope that the soothing words they have included in this book can be a contributing source of healing that will uplift a sorrowing heart, dry a tearing eye, and send a mourner on the necessary path to normal living.
This collection is filled with stories that celebrate the joys, sorrows and challenges of being Jewish. Storytelling is a major component of the Jewish tradition, and this book honors that heritage. Some stories are timely and others are timeless; all are filled with heart-and, of course, love. In these pages you will discover the invincible power of love-love of family, love of tradition, love of God. Whether you are a Jew or a non-Jew, this collection is sure to capture your heart. Publishers Weekly called it the best of the entire Chicken Soup for the Soul series.
While there are other books on the subject of Judaism and the environment, SIMPLE ACTIONS FOR JEWS TO HELP GREEN THE PLANET (Growth Associates / October 2011/ Softcover/ $17.99) is the only one that deals directly with specific actions and behaviors that Jews (and people of all faiths and backgrounds) can perform to become active in helping to green the planet.
Collected in this volume are over one thousand of the most popular and trenchant aphorisms of the past several centuries of hasidic teaching that have captured the heart and soul of world Jewry since the birth of Hasidism.
The Torah is called -Etz Chaim – a tree of life. In all of his writings, Dov Peretz Elkins has managed to make the ancient wisdom of Judaism come alive for modern men and women.
