Title: No Such Victim: A Book About Divine Providence and How to Work with It
Author: Pinchas Winston
With a title such as this, Rabbi Winston’s new book belongs in every Jewish home and institution. Page 180 holds a delicious, psychologically satisfying insight and answer to your confusion about the purpose and function of personal suffering.
With that cleared away, let’s look at the rest of this 198-page palm-sized paperback. Chapter One “The Good and the Bad” reminds us that Hashem has a sharp sense of humor and justice. Though enemies have slaughtered us, history is Heavenly designed to result in the end of evil plus the punishment of volunteers who served Heavenly justice on us. A third point is that payback time is approaching with the geula. Actually, payback time seems to be in progress if you read the book carefully. That makes it rather fun to guess what’s in the coming attractions of God’s plan.
Want to know how to happily end your sense of guilt for misspent time and opportunities? Pages 32-37 show how we can overcome the anger, negativity and harm of personal and other challenges in minutes, perhaps within moments. Subsequent chapters expound on these pages.
Chapter Seven’s “Of Angels and Miracles” shows us why Torah is not exclusively in Heaven but dependent on Oral Law instead. Delegation of halachic authority in times of exile would enable adherence to normative Judaism instead of disastrous loss of Jewish tradition. The illustrative examples cited here can clear up spiritual confusion and let you look forward to the future.
Chapter Ten’s “A Short Story and Example” is for soothing your anguish over past mistakes, pointing out the path to personal improvement. It only takes a few moments of reflection. You can spend a lifetime relishing the results.

Few traces remain of the glory days of Jewish life in the kingdoms of Sicily and Naples, but the demise wasn’t due to the eruption of nearby Mount Vesuvius. Rather it was a manmade volcano called the Edict of Expulsion from Spain – and not even an invitation to return in Shevat of 1740 could […]
Tehilim 71:9 reads “Do not cast me off in the time of old age; Do not forsake me when my strength fails.” The message is apropos to the endeavor – wonder and spirituality ruled as respect for aging heroes of the Shoah increased among Leo Baeck students.
Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book.

Am Yisrael began to appreciate his depth of character at kriat Yam Suf, realizing that “he lived in the revealed world as though he were in the concealed world.”

Unlike formulaic biographies from popular publishing houses in the Orthodox Jewish world, Beyond Politics is not predictable. The vignettes of individual men and women who trekked through Ethiopia and Sudan, flew in from Austria, India, and Algeria, or were born on Israeli soil are gritty, adventurous, and heartwarming.
Title: The Koren Ethiopian Haggada Journey to Freedom: Celebrating Ethiopian Jewish History, Traditions & Customs
Editor: Rabbi Menachem Waldman
Publisher: Koren Publishing
Most of the No-Potato Passover recipes are as casual as the title’s spelling: some include only six ingredients and limited prep time – half to one full hour. They’re good for heart health and waistlines, too.
The Hebrew-English haggada provides a wealth of photographic evidence of the lives led by Ethiopian Jews. The pottery, the unembellished homes, school, and synagogues, the gaunt Jews in modest clothing and head coverings portray dedication to Torah values despite harsh political and topographical conditions.
