With All Your Possessions: Jewish Ethics and Economic Life

With All Your Possessions: Jewish Ethics and Economic Life

In face of the age-old slander against Jewish business ethics, noted economist and rabbinic scholar Meir Tamari puts forth a rigorous defense of Jewish economy as a highly ethical system combining free-market practices with social welfare, competition with compassion. From the biblical story of Ruth to modern taxation responsa, With All Your Possessions demonstrates how the Jew’s economic life, attitude toward material assets, and mercantile conduct all reflect strict ethical principles. Detailing the history, laws, and customs of Jewish economic activity, Tamari presents an overview of the world’s oldest system of economics still in use – and the uncompromising moral code that underlies it.

My Rebbe

My Rebbe

When Menachem Mendel Schneerson became the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe, Chabad-Lubavitch consisted of a small group of Chasidim recovering from near annihilation in the Holocaust. During his forty years of leadership, Rabbi Schneerson transformed Chabad into a global movement marked by extensive outreach activities and a closeknit network of emissaries stationed around the world. His passionate devotion to education, social change, and acts of charity and kindness inspired countless people to embrace spirituality in their daily lives.

In My Rebbe, celebrated author and thinker Rabbi Adin Even-Israel Steinsaltz shares his firsthand account of this extraordinary individual who shaped the landscape of twentieth-century religious life. Written with the admiration of a close disciple and the nuanced perceptiveness of a scholar, this biography-memoir inspires us to think about our own missions and aspirations for a better world.

Alshich on Avos

Alshich on Avos

Although the Alshich did not compose a commentary on Pirkei Avos itself, in the course of his explanations of the verses and narratives of Tanach he expounds on many of the Mishnayos contained in Avos. Employing the same incisive questioning and analytical scalpel that he applies to whole chapters and individual verses in his commentary on Scripture, the Alshich interprets these Mishnayos, paying meticulous attention to numerous seemingly inconsequential details of the written text. He reveals their underlying structure and meaning, while emphasizing the moral and religious lessons to be derived from each Mishnah. Among the Alshich’s themes are many of the principles and key concepts of Jewish faith, including the afterlife, reward and punishment, hashgachah pratis (Divine intervention in human affairs), proper study habits, and the correct path to a Torah way of life.


The Alshich’s flowery language, enigmatic style, and frequent borrowing of phrases from Scripture and the Talmud have made it difficult for all but the most accomplished Torah students to reap the full benefits of his brilliant writing. This new adaptive translation makes his work more accessible to the English reader. It includes copious footnotes that identify the Alshich’s sources, extensive explanations to clarify the more difficult passages, an explanatory foreword, and a thoroughly researched biography.

A Life of Torah Hacham Ovadia Yosef: Inspiring Stories about the Prince of Torah and Leader of the Generation

A Life of Torah Hacham Ovadia Yosef: Inspiring Stories about the Prince of Torah and Leader of the Generation

He was the boy who finished an entire difficult and long sefer by learning it on the short bus ride to and from yeshivah each day.

He was the young man who memorized entire sefarim while leafing through them in the bookstore.

He was the Torah genius who underwent a painful procedure without anesthesia, yet didn't feel a thing - because he was concentrating so intensely on studying a Gemara.

He was the gadol hador whose love for Torah was so great that even a few minutes of learning meant more to him than speaking on the phone with the prime minister of the country.

He was one of the greatest Torah leaders of our generation.

He was Maran Hacham Ovadia Yosef ztvk"l.

Maran's greatness in Torah, his diligence in learning, and his ahavat Yisrael are legendary. In A Life of Torah, you wlil read twenty-five incredible stories about this saintlytzaddik and gaon. each inspirational anecdote will fill you with awe for this Torah giant...and with a longing to follow in his ways.

RAV CHAIM KANIEVSKY HAGGADAH

RAV CHAIM KANIEVSKY HAGGADAH

Imagine sitting in a room, simple but immaculate. It is seder night, and at the head of the table sits Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita. He shares a vort, discusses a halachic question, unveils an insight. Behind him you can dimly make out other figures, surrounded by an aura of holiness, who also contribute to the seder conversation: Rav Chaim's father, the Steipler zt'l, and his uncle, the Chazon Ish zt'l. The legendary Rebbetzin Kanievsky z'l, her eyes glowing with joy, is there too.

What a seder that would be...

Though obviously we cannot attend that imaginary seder in Bnei Brak, we can share Rav Chaim's thoughts and wisdom on the Haggadah and discover some of the practices he follows. In a sense, we can participate in Rav Chaim's seder - as we avidly read through the Rav Chaim Kanievsky Haggadah.

One of the most revered Torah personalities of our time, scion of a great Torah family, Rav Chaim Kanievsky has touched hundreds of thousands through his sefarim, his berachos, and his very presence. The Rav Chaim Kanievsky Haggadah presents his insights and weaves them together with scores of stories and anecdotes to make this a work that is engaging and unique.

    Drashot of the Ben Ish Hai Halachot

    Drashot of the Ben Ish Hai - Halachot

    Drashot of the Ben Ish Hai - Halachot is an English translation of the Ben Ish Chai's work

    The Ben Ish Chai which means "The son of a living man" authored many books but he most known by his book on Halacha. This book is widely studied in Sephardic yeshivot and functioned for a long time as a Sephardic Kitzur Shulchan Aruch (Code of the Jewish Law). Because of the wide popularity of the book on halachot, Rav Hayim Yosef zt"l became known as the Ben Ish Chai zt"l. The bookk contains drashot (explanations) that he gave in form of classes on Shabbat afternoons in the Bet Kenesset in Baghdad over a 2 year period.

    Each chapter usually starts with a discussion of a passuk from the weekly portion of the Torah reading (or from Pirkei Avot during the period between Passover and Shavuot). The Rav then provides his drasha regarding that passuk and relates it to specific issue and following that, he would outline a series of halachot rulings pertaining to that subject.  

    The Purim Story

For The Megilla with English comentary check out this selection. For Hebrew Commentary check out these. we are sure that you will learn something new and will be enlightened.

    And Now For THE PURIM STORY

    It all began in Ancient Persia in the 4th century BCE. The Holy Temple that had stood in Jerusalem was destroyed more than 50 years earlier, and the Jews were subjects of the mighty Persian empire which extended over 127 lands.

    The Purim story begins three years after King Ahasuerus becomes king, when he felt secure in his new position, Ahasuerus celebrates by throwing a grand 180-day-long party for all his subjects. Following this party, Ahasuerus hosted a smaller week-long extravaganza for the residents of the capital city of Shushan. In the palace's women's quarters, Ahasuerus' wife, Queen Vashti, hosted her own party for the Shushanite womenfolk.

    On the seventh day of this party, Ahasuerus' heart "was merry with wine," and he commanded his wife Vashti to appear before all the partying men—he wanted to show them all her exquisite beauty. Vashti balked at this request, as she developed a skin rash and did not want to appear before King Ahasuerus and his men in such a state. So at the advice of his advisor Memuchan, Ahasuerus King Ahasuerus ordered Vashti's execution.

    When Ahasuerus' anger dissipated, he was lonely for a wife. At his servants suggestion he orchestrated a beauty pageant. Officers were appointed in all the king's lands, and all beautiful girls were brought to Ahasuerus. And the girl who would find favor in the king's eyes would be the new queen.

    The leader of the Jews at that time was Mordechai. Mordechai had a cousin, Esther, who was orphaned as a young girl. Mordechai raised her and treated her as a daughter. Though she had no desire to be the queen, Esther was forcibly taken to the king's palace, to participate in the contest. While all the other contestant beautified themselves with perfumes and lotions, Esther did nothing. But G‑d had His own plans. When Esther appeared before the king, he immediately liked her, and Esther became the new Queen of Persia. But as per Mordechai's instructions, Esther refused to divulge her nationality—even to the king.

    Shortly after Esther became queen, Mordechai overheard two of the king's chamberlains discussing a plot to assassinate the king. Mordechai had them reported, and the traitors were hanged.

    Meanwhile, Haman, one of Ahasuerus' ministers, was promoted to the position of Prime Minister. Haman was a virulent Jew hater; in fact he was a descendant of Amalek.

    Immediately after his promotion, the king issued a decree ordering everyone to bow down whenever Haman appeared. Haman would walk around with a large idol hanging from a chain around his neck. When Mordechai, refused to bow down, Haman was enraged. He resolved to take revenge against all the Jews and threw lots to determine the "lucky" day when he would implement his plan. The lot fell on the 13th day of the Hebrew month of Adar.

    Haman approached Ahasuerus and offered him 10,000 silver talents in exchange for permission to elliminate the Jews. Ahasuerus, who was no friend of the Jews either, told Haman, "The money is yours to keep, and the nation is yours to do with as you please."

    Haman immediately sent proclamations to all the king's land. These declarations, sealed with the royal signet ring, ordered the people to rise up against the Jews and kill them all – men, women, and children – on the following 13th of Adar.

    Mordechai became aware of the decree. He rent his garments and donned sackcloth. He sent a message to Esther, asking her to approach the king and beg him to spare her people. Esther responded that according to the rules anyone who entered the king's presence and was not summoned would be put to death—unless the king extended to that person his golden scepter. "And I," Esther said, "have not been summoned by the king for thirty days already!"

    Mordechai sent another message: "Do not think that you will escape the fate of all the Jews by being in the king's palace. For if you will remain silent at this time, relief and salvation will come to the Jews from another source, and you and the house of your father will be lost. And who knows if it is not for just such a time that you reached this royal position."

    Esther agreed to go to King Ahasuerus. But asked Mordechai to gather all the Jews in Shushan and let them all fast for three days and nights. And after this fast Esther would approach the king.

    Mordechai complied with Esther's request. He gathered the Jews of Shushan – especially the children, 22,000 of them – and they fasted, repented and prayed to G‑d.

    After three days of fasting, Esther donned royal garb and entered Ahasuerus' chambers. Immediately, the king extended his scepter. "What is it?" Ahasuerus asked. "What is your request?"

    "I would like to invite the king and Haman to a small feast I have prepared," Esther responded.

    So the king and Haman joined Esther for a wine-feast. During the feast, the king again asked Esther whether she had anything to request. "Yes," Esther responded. "I would appreciate if tomorrow, again, the king and Haman would join me for a feast. And then I will tell the king my request."

    Haman left the party a happy and proud man. Oh the honor he was being accorded! But standing at the king's gate was Mordechai – whostillrefused to bow to Haman – and Haman was enraged. When he arrived home, his wife advised him to erect a gallows, and then to go to the king and request permission to hang Mordechai. Haman excitedly went ahead and put up the gallows.

    Sleep eluded the king that night, so he asked his servants to read for him from the Royal Chronicles. They complied with the king's orders. They read from the Chronicles how Mordechai saved the king's life when two of his chamberlains hatched a plot to kill him.

    "Was he rewarded for this fine act?" Ahasuerus asked. "No he was not," the servants responded.

    At that moment Haman entered the king's courtyard to ask the king's permission to hang Mordechai! Before Haman could utter a word, Ahasuerus addressed him: "My Haman, in your estimation, what shall be done to a person whom the king wishes to honor?"

    Haman, who was certain that it was him who the king wished to honor, answered: "Bring royal garment and a royal horse. And let one of the king's nobles dress the man and lead him on the horse through the city streets, proclaiming before him, 'So is done for the man whom the king wishes to honor!'"

    "Excellent idea," Ahasuerus responded. "Now go get the garments and the horse and do so for Mordechai the Jew!"

    Haman had no choice but to obey. The next day he went and honored Mordechai as the king had ordered, and then immediately rushed to join the king and Esther for "The second Feast"

    "What is your request?" a curious King Ahasuerus asked Esther at the feast.

    "If I have found favor in your eyes, O King," Esther pleaded, "and if it pleases the king, let my life be granted me by my plea, and the life of my people by my request. For my people and I have been sold to be annihilated, killed and destroyed!" Esther then identified Haman as the evil person who wished to perpetrate this atrocity.

    The king was greatly angered. When he was then informed that Haman had built a gallows for Mordechai, he ordered that Haman be hanged on that very gallows.

    But Esther was far from satisfied. Haman was dead, but his evil decree was still in effect. According to Persian law, once a king issues a decree it cannot be rescinded. But the king gave Mordechai and Esther permission, and they promptly wrote up a decree that reversed Haman's edict. The decree granted the Jews permission to defend themselves against their enemies. And by this time, considering that all knew that the queen and Prime Minister were both Jewish, no one would prevent the Jews from doing just that!

    And the Jews in Shushan were oh so happy. Celebrations abounded!

    On the 13th of Adar that year, the Jews throughout the Persian Empire mobilized and killed the enemies who had wanted to kill them.

    Esther asked the king's permission for the Jews in Shushan to have one more day to destroy their enemy—and the king acceded to her wish. On that day, the 14th of Adar, the Jews worldwide celebrated, and the Jews of Shushan killed more of their enemies, and also hung Haman's ten sons. The Jews of Shushan then rested and celebrated on the 15th of Adar.

    In Commemoration Mordechai and Esther established a holiday to commemorate these amazing events. Jews worldwide celebrate on the 14th of Adar, while residents of walled cities – like Shushan – celebrate on the 15th of Adar. This holiday, called "Purim," is the most joyous holiday on the Jewish calendar.

    Purim Customs and laws

    Parshat Zachor - On the Shabbat before Purim, there is an obligation for everyone to hear the special maftir, that of Parshat Zachor (Devarim 25:17-19). It describes both the commandment to remember the evil the Amalekite nation perpetrated against the Jews on their way out of Egypt, and to obliterate their name in future generations. In order to fulfill the obligation, one must hear every single word read in public.

    Taanit Esther - Taanit Esther is the fast that commemorates the three days fast observed by the Jews in the Book of Esther. In the time of Mordechai and Esther this fast took place on the first three days of Pesach, but since fasting on Pesach is not permitted, the fast is linked to Purim. Generally The Fast of Esther is observed the day before Purim and is followed by the Megillas reading on Purim. As Purim falls out on Saturday night this year, Taanit Esther is moved to Thursday, March 13th. The fast begins at 5:20 AM and ends at nightfall. This year one may eat as soon as the fast ends. Unlike years when Taanit Esther immediately precedes Purim and we do not eat before Megillah.

    Machatzit HaShekel - Machatzit HaShekel refers to the Biblically ordained annual giving of a silver half shekel by Jews. This money was collected during the month of Adar and used for upkeep in the Temple, specifically for communal sacrifices. It was collected from all people, but was obligatory on all males above 20 years of age. Today, this mitzvah is commemorated on the afternoon of Taanit Esther, at or before Minchah, or at the latest, on Purim morning.

    The Mitzvah is performed by contributing at sum of money in exchange for three silver coins. The three silver coins are then lifted to acquire ownership, and then contributed. In this manner, everyone can perform the mitzvah with the same coins.

    Matanot L’Evyonim - The most important mitzvah of Purim, giving gifts to the poor is the way the Jews celebrated their victory over Haman. Note that this obligation is independent of the Machatzit haShekel, and it must be performed on Purim day itself. The amount given should be sufficient to assist at least two different poor people with their Purim meal.

    Reading the Megillah - It is incumbent on every man and woman to hear the Book of Esther read in the evening and the morning. One must hear every word of the Megillah both times. The Megillah is read from a scroll written on parchment paper. The megilla is stored a Megillah holder. Check out our selection of Megillah holders here.

    During the Megillah Reading, each time the name Haman is heard we are to make noise so to erase the name of Haman, The noisemakers we use are called Graggers or Raashan. For a selection of Raashanim click here

    Al Hanissim - A special Purim text for Al Hanissim is included in all prayers, as well as Birkat Hamazon. If it is forgotten, one is not required to repeat the prayer in question.

    Torah Reading - On Purim morning, we read of the attack on the Jewish people by the Amalekites, and how Moshe led the Jewish people to victory (Exodus 17:8-16).

    Mishloach Manot - One must send a minimum of two different prepared/cooked foods, to at least one other Jewish person. If one’s funds are limited, it is better to fulfill the minimum requirement for Mishloach Manot and donate more to Matanot Le’Evyonim. 

    Mishloach Manos is very often sent in decorative Purim boxes. We have a selection of Mishloach Manot boxes to enhance your Mishloach Manot. check it out here

    Purim Seudah - It is a requirement to have a festive meal for Purim. One should eat bread, and the meal should ideally contain meat products.

    Drinking on Purim- Because wine played an important role in the miracle of Purim, it plays a role in our celebration of it as well. To fulfill this requirement, one should drink slightly more wine at the Purim Seudah than one normally does at a meal, and then, if possible, take a short nap. In our observance of Purim, we must consider the unfortunate reality that alcohol abuse has become a serious problem in the contemporary Orthodox community, and conduct ourselves accordingly. Moreover, drinking other hard beverages does not fulfill the requirement to drink wine. Indeed, the Chafetz Chaim writes (Biur Halacha, OC 695:2): “We are not commanded to reduce ourselves to levels of drunkenness, but rather to rejoice in a manner that will lead us to the love of God.” In our community, which is blessed with so many wonderful children, safety and responsibility must be given extra and paramount concern. As a matter of Torah and secular law, alcohol must not be given to minors, and adults should take special on Purim to consume alcohol minimally and responsibly.

    Torah Study and Prayer- Purim is a day of joy that is celebrated through merrymaking and laughter. However, in some significant ways, Purim is no joke. The Talmud tells us that the Jewish people re-accepted the Torah on Purim, and therefore, even with all the other mitzvot one must perform on Purim, it is a most auspicious and effective day for Torah study. Moreover, many classic sources tell us that Purim represents a special opportunity for one’s prayers to be answered.
