    Was Miriam Brandeis just a hysterical, attention seeking teenager or had she really murdered the young man she had only just met? If so, why was there no police report, and no body? Colin and Leora take extreme risks to uncover the secrets of a dastardly cult that threatens the lives of ordinary Jewish families and has global aims too horrible to contemplate.

  • Against the Wall
    $4.99
    Ruthie Pearlman
    Against the Wall
    targum

    A ground-breaking and powerful novel about Jewish teenagers at risk. This novel tells the fictional story of three London boys who allowed the author to lift the dark, obscure carpet under which many in the Jewish community like to shove the issues they’d rather not think about. Fictional, but based on truth, because Ruthie Pearlman met and interviewed many boys, and girls too, in researching this heart-stopping story. Their stories have been blended and mixed together, until Against the Wall emerged.

  • Woman of Valor
    $9.99
    Lihi Lapid
    Woman of Valor
    A Novel
    gefen

    She was determined to be the best wife, mother, and professional; something had to give… For weeks Woman of Valor topped Israel’s best-seller lists, conquering hearts. In trenchant and colorful prose, Lihi Lapid tells a true-life story of women (and men) struggling to live up to expectations (most of all their own): a story about shattered dreams, and about finding the strength to gather up the pieces and learn to smile again. Woman of Valor is a must-read for every mother. Lihi Lapid’s best-selling novel starts where most love stories leave off: at the beginning of real life. Woman of Valor follows the lives of two women in their first years of motherhood. One is a fictional character trying to live happily ever after. The second woman is the author herself, who courageously and honestly relates her true-life experiences as a wife, mother, professional, and parent of a special needs child. Interspersed are actual letters from readers of Lapid’s popular newspaper column, sharing the most intimate moments of their lives.

    An Account of Authentic Compassion During the Holocaust
    gefen

    Ruth Abraham and Maria Nickel would never have met each other if it hadn't been for the Shoah. But when Hitler turned Germany into a cauldron of anti- Semitism, Maria Nickel decided that morality and ethics were more important than even life itself. This story of unbridled compassion made world headlines in May 2000 in Berlin Germany when Ruth, then 87 and recovering from heart bypass surgery, met her friend Maria, 90, for the last time.

  • Working It Out
    $4.99
    Ruthie Pearlman
    Working It Out
    The Rifki Nesher/Goldberg Trilogy, book number 1
    targum

    This book was the first Ruthie Pearlman ever had published, written in 1988 and published two years later. It follows the fortune of a determined young orthodox Jewish girl who wants to break out of the expected life plan that her community has for her, and study medicine. It starts with her at school, moves on to her working life, her family’s emigration to a settlement on the Israeli West Bank, seminary, an Arab attack, her father’s terminal illness, and finally her marriage. Despite these hurdles Rifki maintains her determination to succeed in her medical career whilst not abandoning the dictates of her faith. This book, when it first came out, changed lives. We are hoping its new lease of life will continue to do so.

    The Life of Solomon (Sioma) Yankelevitch Jacobi
    gefen

    Solomon Jacobi, born in the Ukraine and educated in Odessa, a veteran of the Russian army and a lifelong Zionist activist, died in 1939 at the age of forty-two. Twenty-five years later, the editor of Herut wrote, “I feel the emotional need to resurrect the memory of the man to whom many of us owe our lives. The younger generation have never heard his name; among the older generation only a few know of him. Yet, as the Betar website said in its tribute to Jacobi, he was “the person responsible for Aliyah Bet on behalf of the Betar directorate.… He was the living force of the enterprise.
