Why do I have to repeat everything?
Why does every conversation end in an argument?
Communicating with our children. Conversing. Connecting.
When did it become so difficult? And how do we begin to change it for the better?
This book was designed to help parents answer these important questions, and it is based on two fundamental ideas:
- The first is that there are no bad children, and no deliberately bad parents -- but that sometimes, despite the best of intentions on both sides, there can be bad relationships between parents and children.
- The second is that, as parents, we must do everything we can to save those relationships, to reach out and really communicate with our children, because it is only through talking to them that we can create an environment for inspiration and change.
In this compelling book, Shmuley Boteach, passionate social commentator and outspoken relationship guru, walks you through the critical conversations, including: cherishing childhood; developing intellectual curiosity; knowing who you are and what you want to become; learning to forgive; realizing the importance of family and tradition; being fearless and courageous.
As a father of eight, Rabbi Shmuley speaks from a wealth of experience. He has written a book for parents of children of all ages, from toddlers, who are just beginning to become aware of the world around them, to adolescents, who must learn to navigate all sorts of tricky social and academic pressures.
10 Conversations will help you stay connected to your children so that they develop the kind of strong moral character that leads to rich, meaningful lives.

This is the Passover book you never knew you needed — but you'll wonder how you ever did without it!
It's origins: the authors are two slightly eccentric guys from New Jersey, who each had the custom [independently] of having two or three people ask the Four Questions in different languages. Then they met each other, and things got out of hand. The end result is a huge book, an “exuberant compilation” in the words of Jewish Book World.
“The book comes with a CD and a DVD that have translation highlights, games, quizzes, chants — and more irresistible to any language lover and a trove of seder novelties.” We agree. And we'd add that it's a great seder gift.

It is a little known fact that there have been more than fifty prominent Jewish Messiahs.
These characters, though uncrowned today, inspired messianic fervor that at times seized the whole Jewish, Christian, Muslim and even secular worlds.
The stories of these fifty Messiahs, both male and female, are unknown -- suppressed by Jewish religious authorities or ignored by historians of all religions.
In this book, these Jewish Messiahs are remembered, and now their forgotten stories -- whether humorous, bizarre, tragic or solemn -- are finally told.
The Messiah who killed the Pope; The Messiah who was saved from the Inquisition when the Pope hid him in the Vatican; The Messiah who demanded that his head be cut off in order to prove his immortality The Messiah who defied the Holy Roman Emperor; The 17th century Messiah whose followers continued their secret society into the 20th century.
And to contemporary times and the story of the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, and how he inspired a passionate and devoted following.
Above all, Fifty Jewish Messiahs examines humanity, not divinity, and history rather than theology.
Taken together, these intriguing stories paint a vivid portrait of the universal and timeless human need for optimism, and hope in a better future.

Deepen your understanding of Shabbat, awaken to the possibilities, and experience the day with an extra measure of holiness.
Seventh Heaven delves into the art of consciously observing Shabbat exploring many of the day's traditional religious practices within the context of life's spiritual dynamics.
With the help and wisdom of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov one of the most important of the early Hasidic masters this guidebook offers insight into the deeper meaning and purpose of a broad range of Shabbat observances and seeks to show how each custom or law fits within the whole.
In an accessible, easy-to-understand language, 7th Heaven is a spiritual guide for all levels of Shabbat observance:
If Shabbat is new to you, or you've experienced it only in its popular form, but would like to deepen your understanding and connection.
If Shabbat is something you grew up with, but you were never taught the inner meaning of all the customs and laws you were told to obey.
If Shabbat has never been a part of your spiritual practice, but you would like to learn more about the Jewish pathway to wholeness and higher consciousness.
Based on the teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (1772 1810) and those of his closest disciple, Reb Noson, the deep insights into Torah and spirituality revealed by these great Hasidic luminaries are as relevant in today's world as they were some two centuries ago, when they were first taught.

"A Code of Jewish Ethics, Volume 1: You Shall Be Holy" is the initial volume of the first major code of Jewish ethics to be written in the English language.
It is a monumental work on the vital topic of personal character and integrity by one of the premier Jewish scholars and thinkers of our time.
With the stated purpose of restoring ethics to its central role in Judaism, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin offers hundreds of examples from the Torah, the Talmud, rabbinic commentaries, and contemporary stories to illustrate how ethical teachings can affect our daily behavior.
The subjects dealt with are ones we all encounter.
They include judging other people fairly; knowing when forgiveness is obligatory, optional, or forbidden; balancing humility and self-esteem; avoiding speech that shames others; restraining our impulses of envy, hatred, and revenge; valuing truth but knowing when lying is permitted; understanding why God is the ultimate basis of morality; and appreciating the great benefits of Torah study.
Telushkin has arranged the book in the traditional style of Jewish codes, with topical chapters and numbered paragraphs.
Statements of law are almost invariably followed by anecdotes illustrating how these principles have been, or can be, practiced in daily life.
The book can be read straight through to provide a solid grounding in Jewish values, consulted as a reference when facing ethical dilemmas, or studied in a group.
Vast in scope, this volume distills more than three thousand years of Jewish laws and suggestions on how to improve one's character and become more honest, decent, and just.
It is a landmark work of scholarship that is sure to influence the lives of Jews for generations to come, rich with questions to ponder and discuss, but primarily a book to live by.

Love your neighbor as yourself is the best-known commandment in the Bible.
Yet we rarely hear anyone talk about how to apply these words in daily life.
In this landmark work, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, one of the premier scholars and thinkers of our time, gives both Jews and non-Jews an extraordinary summation of what Jewish tradition teaches about putting these words into practice.
Writing with great clarity and simplicity as well as with deep wisdom, Telushkin covers topics such as love and kindness, hospitality, visiting the sick, comforting mourners, charity, relations between Jews and non-Jews, compassion for animals, tolerance, self-defense, and end-of-life issues.
This second volume of the first major code of Jewish ethics written in the English language is breathtaking in its scope and will undoubtedly influence readers for generations to come.
It offers hundreds of practical examples from the Torah, the Talmud, the Midrash, and both ancient and modern rabbinic commentaries as well as contemporary anecdotes all teaching us how to care for one another each and every day.
A Code of Jewish Ethics, Volume 2: Love Your Neighbor as Yourself is a consummate work of scholarship. Like its acclaimed predecessor, which received the National Jewish Book Award, it is rich with ideas to contemplate and discuss, while being primarily a book to live by.
Nothing could be more important in these strife-torn times than learning how to love our neighbors as ourselves.
The message of this book is as vital and timely now as it has been since time immemorial.
