    Here are all the many halachic issues we encounter every week, explained with the clarity that has made his sefarim indispensable guides to tens of thousands: the best time to bathe and prepare for Shabbos, when to set our table, preparations that a woman in advanced stages of pregnancy should make before Shabbos, setting up timers for appliances, travel on Fridays.

    Tefillah is an integral part of Shabbos observance, and Rabbi Cohen also explores both the halachos and the meaning of our Shabbos prayers, from Kabbalas Shabbos through Maariv of Motza'ei Shabbos.

    Rabbi Cohen is especially well known for dealing with contemporary halachic issues, and The Aura of Shabbos includes a detailed look at maintaining websites on Shabbos and issues often encountered during hotel stays. Also included are brief guides to the laws of challah and tevilas keilim.

    Six Diaries

    What comes to mind when you hear "tznius"?

    Six teenage girls from both modern Orthodox and Bais Yaakov backgrounds set out to answer that question.

    Tights. Ugly. Frum. Self-Esteem. Hard. Beautiful.

    Necklines and hemlines, slits and socks - what's the big deal? The girls felt confused, frustrated, guilty, resentful. And afraid of change.

    But they were open-minded enough to try something new. Meet once a month. Discuss tznius. Keep a weekly diary.

    It wasn't easy. It wasn’t overnight. But somewhere between October and June, six girls started to see things differently.

    This is their open and honest diaries – their thoughts and feelings, their confusion, frustration and guilt.

    They challenged tznius on their own terms. They discussed topics without the censorship of adults. They took a different look at themselves. Rethink what beauty really means. Wish for more.

    Avigail: There are a billion questions I have on tznius, but even when I try to get the answers, nothing clicks. 
    Rachel: I’m very embarrassed, but whenever I see a group of girls with the long-skirt, button-down shirt look, it makes me really nervous. 
    Chavi: When I think about tznius, a few things come to mind - and none of them are too exciting. 
    Sarah: Honestly, I'm not looking to become a totally new person at this point in my life... 
    Ellie: Is tznius really so up there on the priority list in Heaven? What about tefillah, simchah, things like that? 
    Shevi: It’s like my head keeps telling me to wear it and my heart keeps telling me not to.

    Their diaries are true. Their thoughts are totally honest. Their journey is real.

    In addition, he is one of the world's leading experts on the halachic ramifications of modern medicine.

    He was exceptionally close to the great gaon and posek Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, zt'l, and is an intimate of Rabbi Yehoshua Neuwirth, author of Shmiras Shabbos K'hilchasah, among others.

    In his practice and extensive research, Dr. Abraham has come across virtually every instance where medical practice requires halachic opinion.

    Hundreds of doctors consult him and, when necessary, he in turn consults premier halachic authorities.

    His multi-volume Hebrew Nishmat Avraham is the authorative handbook in this life-and-death field, and it has molded the nexus of Medicine and Halachah for hundreds of observant physicians and thousands of families in Israel and around the world.

    With this book, Dr. Abraham expands his "practice" manifold, by adapting his magnum opus into English.

    One can hardly imagine a family that will not be forced at some point to make life-saving decisions that will require the knowledge and judgment contained in this book.

    Muktzeh - A Practical Guide: A comprehensive treatment of the principles and common applications of the laws of muktzeh
    by Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen 

    Ever the practical, down-to-earth posek, Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen concentrates on the areas of Halachah that affect every home and family.

    His previous works have become indispensable handbooks in countless homes, where such laws as those of the Shabbos kitchen, the use of appliances, child-raising, non-Jewish household help and many others are no longer shrouded in mystery and ignorance.

    He has the exceptional ability to explain the underlying principles of the laws, so that the reader understands how to apply them to new situations. 

    In this new book, Rabbi Cohen brings his popular and authoritative approach to the complex laws of muktzeh. In his inimitable manner, he makes them clear and comprehensible and shows how principles merge with practice.

    After laying the groundwork of the Halachah, he presents hundreds of common cases with the correct rulings.

    Rabbi Cohen embellishes his own work with rulings of the geonim Rabbi Moshe Feinstein and Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, with whom he personally consulted for many years.

    What are the different kinds of muktzeh? May they ever be used? If so, which ones? What about a newly arrived fax? Mail? A screwdriver? A hammer and a stone are both muktzeh, but one may sometimes be used -- which and why?

    The answers are all here. Even better, the whys and whens are clear.

    The Chofetz Chaim used to say that without knowledge and understanding of the laws, even the most pious people may innocently desecrate Shabbos.

    He wrote and appealed to people to study the laws so that they would banish error from their lives.

    Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen is carrying out that sacred charge -- and is doing it in a stimulating and enjoyable manner.

    This book is another entry in his honor roll of service to the Jewish community.

    Like Rabbi Cohen’s other books, this one belongs in every Jewish home

    In this captivating account of a Bible-based practice that has grown into a multibillions-dollar industry, journalist Sue Fishkoff travels throughout America and to Shanghai, China, to find out who eats kosher food, who produces it, who is responsible for its certification, and how this fascinating world continues to evolve. She explains why 86 percent of the 11.2 million Americans who regularly buy kosher food are not observant Jews—they are Muslims, Seventh-day Adventists, vegetarians, people with food allergies, and consumers who pay top dollar for food they believe “answers to a higher authority.”

    Fishkoff interviews food manufacturers, rabbinic supervisors, and ritual slaughterers; meets with eco-kosher adherents who go beyond traditional requirements to produce organic chicken and pasture-raised beef; sips boutique kosher wine in Napa Valley; talks to shoppers at an upscale kosher supermarket in Brooklyn; and marches with unemployed workers at the nation’s largest kosher meatpacking plant. She talks to Reform Jews who are rediscovering the spiritual benefits of kashrut, and to Conservative and Orthodox Jews who are demanding that kosher food production adhere to ethical and environmental values. And she chronicles the corruption, price-fixing, and strong arm tactics of early-twentieth-century kosher meat production, against which contemporary kashrut standards pale by comparison.

    A revelatory look at the current state of kosher in America, this book will appeal to anyone interested in food, religion, Jewish identity, or big business.

    How To Keep Kosher

    $24.95

    "Traditional Judaism injects sanctification into the ordinary habits of everyday life. Keeping kosher helps us pause and think about what we eat, and how we eat it, and elevates the act of eating."

    What does it mean to keep kosher?

    Many may be familiar with the basics: no bacon, no shrimp, no cheeseburgers. But the Jewish dietary laws go deeper than that, and How to Keep Kosher explores the ins and outs. Why are some foods deemed kosher while others are not? Why can't you mix meat and dairy dishes? How do you turn a nonkosher kitchen into a kosher one? Do you really need multiple sets of everything -- dishes, pots, pans, and utensils? How do you keep track of what's what?

    Whether you are thinking about adopting a kosher lifestyle or already have a kosher home and just want tounderstand what it is all about, Lisë Stern's How to Keep Kosher is essential reading.

    You will learn about the biblicaland historical origins of keeping kosher, the development of the kosher certification system, specific food preparation requirements for Shabbat, Passover, and other holidays, and how to actually set up a kosher kitchen.

    In straightforward language, drawing upon explanations from the Torah and Talmud, along with interviews with rabbis, academics, and laypeople who keep kosher, Lisë explores all aspects of Judaism's ancient dietary traditions as they are carried out in today's kitchen, with its range of modern appliances -- dishwashers, food processors, and microwave ovens.

    For the first time, one book explains both Conservative and Orthodox perspectives on kashrut, as well as opinions from other Jewish affiliations.

    When Lisë was nine, her parents decided to make the change -- transform their home to a kosher one -- as a core part of their evolving commitment to Judaism. Because Lisë experienced the transition as a child and keeps a kosher home today, she is uniquely qualified to explain all aspects of this traditional practice.

    Setting up a kosher kitchen lays the foundation for implementing the tradition; the proof is in the potato pudding.

    As Lisë notes, the Talmud says, "Room can always be found in one's stomach for sweet things," and the wealth of information is sweetened with more than forty recipes for Shabbat dinners and lunches as well as holiday and festival celebrations.

    Traditional recipes include Chicken Soup with My Mother's Ethereal Matzo Balls, Sliced Potato–Onion Kugel, and Hamantashen; new classics are Chilled Cucumber–Yogurt Soup, Rosemary Sweet Potato Kugel, Enchilada Lasagna, and Chocolate-Flecked Meringues.

    Stern's How to Keep Kosher is an inclusive, user-friendly handbook filled with answers to the fundamental who, what, where, when, why, and how questions surrounding the Jewish dietary laws -- making these laws both accessible and appealing.
