A Soldier and a Poet by Avraham Yair Stern

A Soldier and a Poet

“Soldiers without names or uniforms are we, surrounded by terror and death.

For the rest of our lives we are enlistees, discharged from the ranks with our last breath.”

Out of the turmoil of the battlefield rises a brave young voice of human reflection from decades past.

Avraham “Yair” Stern was the epitome of a poet. He was a young man who had seen so much, fought for his country and people, and endured grief while always holding fast to hope.

Stern’s poems, inspired and imbued by his experience as a young revolutionary leader in the years leading up to the establishment of the State of Israel, tell an eloquent and emotional story of passion and insight. Relatable and unapologetically human, he lays out his experiences of love, faith, companionship, loyalty, and self-discovery in dozens of works of elegant prose that remain hauntingly relevant today.

Putinburg by Polina Hasin

Putinburg

Crime. Corruption. Murder. Betrayal. The 2022 invasion of Ukraine might have caught most of the world by surprise – but not those familiar with President Vladimir Putin’s gangster state and its inner workings. From stealing national resources to implementing a mafia-style hierarchy within the Kremlin, both Putin’s rise and Russia’s downfall can be traced back to a single point of origin: the city of Saint Petersburg.

In Putinburg, acclaimed St. Petersburg journalist Dmitriy Zapolsky gives a hair-raising account of the infamous Russian leader’s rise to power and the impossible, gaudy cast of characters responsible for turning contemporary Russia into a new imperial monster.

With his dynamic and realistic style, Zapolsky paints a riveting portrait of St. Petersburg in the late 90s and early 2000s. Through his intimate knowledge and access to the people closest to the soon-to-be-president, Zapolsky reveals how, over the span of that single decade, Putin and his allies—dubbed “The St. Petersburg guys”—took over Russia’s national resources, implemented a mafiaesque government, suppressed their opposition, and began exerting their influence both domestically and abroad. The result is a chilling insider’s exposé of Russia’s transformation during the Putin regime’s formative years of corruption and violence.

More than a gonzo documentary, more than a thrilling political story—Putinburg is an authoritative, damning document made all the more relevant in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. It is a story of true journalism, insight, and a cautionary tale from one of the last brave Russian journalists.

Britain’s Secret Crusade by Ezra Nishry

Britain’s Secret Crusade

A revolutionary investigation into Britain’s hidden imperialistic agendas, after the Labour government’s decision to evacuate India and its discreet involvement in creating the long-lasting conflict in the Middle East.

The 1948 Arab-Israeli War was a political turning point that changed the face of the Middle East. It influenced local regimes and catalyzed numerous geopolitical issues still very much alive today, all stemming from one point: the end of its Mandate for Palestine.

In Britain’s Secret Crusade, Dr. Ezra Nishry sheds light on the fascinating chain of events that took place prior to, during, and following the Arab-Israeli War. By reconstructing Britain’s strategies, both militaristic and diplomatic, Nishry challenges the historical paradigm rooted in our understanding of the conflict, revealing the colonialist interests and imperialistic agendas behind Britain’s involvement in the Middle East. With previously sealed documents and records, Nishry shows how Britain instigated the Arab armies’ invasion of Palestine; why there are conflicting historical studies about Britain’s involvement in the war; and how its attempts to influence the outcome of the war ultimately led to the end of its hegemony over the Middle East.

Full of original, uncompromising analysis, Nishry paints for the first time a clear picture of Britain’s goals and actions surrounding Palestine, how it affected the geopolitical climate in the Middle East, and how Israel, a small, newly formed country fighting for its own survival, brought an end to the dream of a new British Empire.

Do or Die: Transform Your Survival Instinct Into a Winner’s Mindset

From the bestselling decision-making guru comes the transformative guide on how to take critical action when failure is not an option.

Here is one inalienable truth in life that nobody seems to want to share with you: Eventually, everyone is going to die. That includes you. But that truth is vastly overrated; it’s not that we will die, or even how we die, that matters, but how we choose to live. Not many can decide how they will leave this world. But, we can all choose how we spend our time living in it. Why not choose what makes you happy, or satisfied, or even, heaven forbid, extraordinary?

What is stopping you from reaching your goals?

Do or Die is a wake-up call for an entire generation trapped in placidity, crippling anxiety, and inaction. Backed by a methodical system that has already encouraged thousands to get up and find their true potential, Do or Die makes the case that our success can only stem from our ability to disregard our primal survival instincts—designed to keep us from harm, failure, and, of course, death. Through well-crafted research, it provides you with the necessary tools to take action and control back from those who’d rather see you fail safely than succeed spectacularly. That means you, too.

If you want to:

  • Understand how your mind functions
  • Learn how to set and truly commit to the right goals
  • Enhance your social environment
  • Change your habits
  • Manage your time and your skills better

… then Do or Die is your real-talk, no-bullshit way of reevaluating your life, rebuilding your confidence, and becoming the best version of yourself. A version that does the work instead of simply dying.

He’s cold, calculated, and tough as nails. And he just met his match.

 

It’s been years since I had to go job-hunting. That’s one advantage of a career in the military – you learn to make do. Take what you need. To stay satisfied. I scoured the internet, but nothing seemed to whet my appetite for thrills. Not until I saw her ad:

“Wanted: test subjects. 35-50. Healthy. Male. Leave your contact info below.”

What did I have to lose?

That’s when I met her. Nadia. Sensual lips on a tall body wrapped in a lab coat.

She claims she wants to know what makes men tick… But I’m not going to let that distract me. I know what I want. And I know how to take what I need.

Looks like this experiment is going to satisfy me, after all.

Weapons of Mass Deterrence by Dan Sagir

Weapons of Mass Deterrence

"What we need is deterrence, not victory in war." — David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister.

Since its inception, the State of Israel has had to confront the issue of its very survival in the region. It was this concern that led Ben-Gurion to pursue a project that eventually became the “Dimona” nuclear project – an “open secret” that later turned Israel into a de facto nuclear state in the Middle East. Paradoxically, the best weapon Israel has in its arsenal is the one it has never openly acknowledged.

But how does Israel’s opaque nuclear deterrence work? How has Israel’s hidden power affected the decision-making of seemingly unrestrained Arab state leaders like Saddam Hussein and the Ayatollah regime in Iran? And what will Israel’s strategy become in the face of the potential loss of its nuclear monopoly?

The first book of its kind, Weapons of Mass Deterrence reveals how Israel’s undeclared nuclear capabilities became an integral part of its general strategy to survive in the Middle East. Veteran Israeli journalist Dan Sagir puts together an eye-opening and captivating account of the Israeli nuclear dimension of the conflict, peering into the state of mind of both its leaders and its enemies. Sagir expertly navigates the complicated timeline of the Dimona project’s impact, including the vocal opposition and cautious support it garnered, the international prices Israel had to pay, and the security it seemingly provided.

With excerpts from the “Saddam Hussein Records” and hundreds of files, interviews, articles, and sources, Weapons of Mass Deterrence exposes the real secret behind the most speculated topic in international politics. Sagir’s intimate knowledge and years of meticulous research are distilled into a gripping, never-seen-before document chronicling the project that shaped the face of the State of Israel, the Middle East, and the global political landscape.

On The Edge by Aviram Barkai

On the Edge: The Incredible Story of the 188th Armored Brigade and the Greatest Tank Battle Ever Waged

On Saturday, October 6, 1973, a few minutes before 14:00, the Syrian army attacked the Golan Heights unprovoked and with full force, marking the beginning of the infamous Yom Kippur War. In the first crucial hours of combat, only one group of soldiers and their tanks stood between the Syrians and the Sea of Galilee: the 188th Armored Brigade.

Divided and outnumbered eight to one, the young soldiers of the 188th were given orders to halt the enemy’s advance for 48 hours until the arrival of reserve units. They assumed control of the brigade after losing their commanding officers in the first hours of battle. They held back an unprecedented ratio of enemy forces in what became a world-famous armored battle of defense. They turned the tide of the war, storming deep into enemy territory.

And they did it in just two days.

On the Edge tells the unbelievable story of the legendary 188th Armored Brigade and the heroic actions of its fighters: the drivers, loaders, gunners, and commanders. With chilling, exhilarating testimonials from the brigade’s surviving soldiers, it dissipates the fog of war from the first 48 hours on the Golan front, shedding light on the individual crews and soldiers who gave their lives as the anvil on which the waves of Syrian attacks were shattered.

The Respectful Classroom

Out of all the metrics evaluated by our modern education system, the one most impactful to the future success and well-being of students and educators—is dignity. The classroom is defined by it: students, teachers, counselors, and educators are all bound by their respect—or lack thereof—for one another. At a time when harassment, fear, and mistrust are abundant, displays of mutual respect and dignity between teacher and student are the key to empowering both groups and unlocking the full potential of their relationship.

Organizational consultant Avi Shahaf spent over thirty years helping school systems develop their own sense of dignity within their hallways. In The Respectful Classroom, Shahaf’s findings are distilled into a captivating professional discussion on the importance of dignity in the education system, and what educators can do to evolve their classrooms into a more respectful space for both students and teachers. From the development of cultural awareness to endorsing mutually respectful dialogues that encourage collaboration and reject prejudice, The Respectful Classroom urges readers from all facets of the education system to think about what type of education experience they want to look back on: would it be a place of mutual respect where every student—and teacher—is appreciated? Or of humiliation and oppression from an increasingly obtuse institute?

Lilach Benjaminy Coorsh’s own rich experience counseling parents and children in her private clinic inspired her to develop a unique method for successful and rewarding parenting. She accumulates her knowledge to teach therapists, counselors, and parents everywhere how to integrate Focusing into their daily lives to ultimately become a respectful parent – who raises children who thrive.

Amizadeh: The Iranian Connection

An Iranian Jewish doctor arrives in Jerusalem with a daunting task, in this latest Ehud Peled page-turning political conspiracy thriller.

Yossef Amizadeh never felt a deep affiliation with the Zionist Dream. Growing up under Iran’s corrupt government of the Shah made the young doctor sympathize with the revolution that saw the Ayatollah’s rise to power. But soon, Yossef will learn that the devil you don’t know is worse than the evil you do.

When Amizadeh and his family are arrested by the Revolutionary Guards under allegations of high treason, Yossef has but one choice – help the fanatical Iranian regime ignite a “jihad” – holy war – to facilitate the expansion of its empire throughout the Middle East. The target marked for the purpose? The most volatile place on Earth – Jerusalem’s Temple Mount and Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Yossef’s only daughter, Rita, smuggled out of Iran years ago and recruited by the Mossad – Israel’s foreign intelligence agency – is now the only one who stands between the execution of her father's fatal mission and all-out war.

With its diverse ensemble of uniquely human characters, Amizadeh offers a gripping and quick-paced plot that pairs well against the backdrop of the contemporary political landscape – perfect for readers of McClosky, Hayes, and O'Rourke.

The Secret of the Lost Diary

True love only comes twice in a lifetime…

 

“Jane, my love. I cannot bear the thought that you didn't know what was coming and that you trusted me so completely, but I knew that if I had stayed another minute, I never would have been able to do what I had to do. I wouldn't have been able to leave. Please forgive me for betraying you. When I gave you up – when I gave up on our love – I knew that I would never love again.

Yours forever,

Cricket.”

 

Emma Jones longs for a way out. While she is working as a caregiver for the elderly Mrs. Baum, between her ward’s sullen demeanor and the clockwork routine of her household, every day feels the same. Until a parcel carrying the wrong address arrives at their doorstep one day, holding a faded, sealed diary. Compelled, Emma opens the diary and immerses herself in its incredible story – a choice that will change the course of her life, and the lives of those closest to her, forever.

The only thing that Cricket still has of Ginger is her nickname. Everything else was lost – buried, just like the dreams they used to share. Desperate, she begins to write. First to herself, then to Ginger, not knowing that her diary will change her future – in more ways than she can imagine.

They were not given a choice. But they will make their own fate.

Sheindel is hardly more than a child when she is wed to Jacob Isaac, the Holy Jew of Peshischa. Just a girl, she helplessly tries to fill the shoes of her widowed husband’s late wife – her beloved sister Feigaleh.

Just a town away, Miriam is ecstatic on her wedding day to the other Jacob Isaac, the Seer of Lublin, only to be cast aside on her first night as a married woman. In his old age, the Seer marries young, beautiful, energetic Beilah, who never wanted to be a rabbi’s wife.

Four Jewish brides, sisters in fate if not in blood, embody the strong, silent Jewish women of the 19th century. Kept in the shadow of their righteous husbands, history has forgotten them. But these courageous women were no docile girls.

The Healer From Qumran by Adiya Shapira

The Healer From Qumran

He wanted to heal the world… But first, she must heal his heart.

The son of a humble farmer, Asaf leaves the safety and comfort of his home in Galilee and follows his cousin Nimrod to join a secretive sect in the Qumran caves. Deep in the isolated Judean Desert, by the banks of the Dead Sea, the sensitive Asaf and the charismatic Nimrod are immersed in the wisdom of the Essenes – a choice that will ultimately change their fates forever.

Quick to assimilate into the Essenes’ spiritual lifestyle, Asaf falls in love with Miriam, a local healer, and finds himself drawn to her craft as much as he is drawn to her side. Meanwhile, Nimrod’s rebellious and independent nature causes friction between him and their conservative elders, and as he starts to attract more and more followers to his new and radical worldview, Asaf is torn between his admiration for Nimrod and his growing loyalty to the Essenes, their values, and his blooming secret love affair with Miriam.

Inspired by the true history of the Essenes and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Adiya Shapira builds a gripping story of discovery and betrayal as Asaf, Miriam, and Nimrod grapple with crises of faith, passion, and painful choices amid the rise and persecution of a charismatic young prophet from Nazareth.

A Change of Tune by Ossi Tajer

A Change of Tune

A disabled war veteran finds peace through music in this powerfully emotional story of comradery and compassion.

 

As Benny returns home from the rehabilitation ward that treated his war injuries, he cannot help but feel lost – lost without his ward brothers, lost inside his broken, disabled body, but mostly lost without his music: that singular part of his identity that was replaced by feelings of anger, guilt, and regret.

Between agonizing glances from his war-widowed mother to his fizzling relationship with his girlfriend, Benny’s acclimation to his new situation as a disabled veteran has been far from smooth. With his entire life hanging on literal crutches, his only escape is the hours he spends back at the hospital ward with his former squad mates, who desperately want to see him change his tune and return to playing music for a living. But how can Benny possibly go back to those blissful days when he cannot even bring himself to pick up his guitar?

But as the idea of an all-veteran band of brothers starts to take form, Benny draws more and more veterans to his cause, each coping with their unique battles. Each new song they create feels like another wound is closed in their hearts. And when one of their songs unexpectedly catches some public attention, Benny starts to wonder – can music mend all the broken pieces of his life, and give him the second chance he never thought he’d have?

The Silence after the Storm by Aliza Klebanov Florenthal

The Silence After The Storm

Two young men. One single gunshot. A daring escape across the border.

Lithuania, 1941. The heavy wooden doors slam shut as Frieda steps inside the local synagogue, where her community is ordered to gather by the pro-Nazi Lithuanian army. With her husband and their daughter Lena, Frieda still believes no harm will come to them or her two bright sons studying, safe and sound, in Paris.

Then the shots rang.

Hundreds of miles away, Yehezkel and his brother Leon are crossing the French countryside. Completely unaware of the horrors enveloping their country and the rest of Europe, they flee south toward the safe harbors of Spain, where they hope to wait out the war. Isolated from their family, the brothers face the dangers of war-torn Europe with only their ingenuity to keep them safe, as they long for the day they can finally reunite with their family.

Based on a heart-wrenching true story, The Silence After the Storm is a touching ode of yearning to those whose lives were cut short by the horrors of the Holocaust. With her artistic writing style, Aliza Florenthal recreates the colorful lives – and red silence – left in the aftermath of the raging storm of World War II.

When Abigail is taken from her family in Judea to be sold as a slave to Janus, a wealthy Greek philosopher, she vows not to be the submissive servant he expects.

Sure enough, her sharp mind and even sharper tongue soon catch Janus’ eye, and he quickly discovers that she is far more suited to challenging his wit in heated philosophical debates than carrying out any mundane household chores. And the more passionate their arguments become, the more he begins to fall for the fiery, intelligent woman who stormed unexpectedly into his life.

But Abigail is torn between two worlds. In one, she is Janus’ equal, his partner and friend. In the other, she is no more than a slave, kept from her home and family against her will. And when word comes of the bloody rebellion unfolding in her motherland, she pleads with Janus to set her free.

Desperate not to lose her, he makes her a deal. If, after one year, he has not convinced her that she should stay – she will be free to go. Abigail accepts, determined not to be swayed.

But a lot can change in a year, and Janus and Abigail will soon be confronted with some of the hardest decisions of their lives. Because when love and freedom cannot coincide, sacrifices will have to be made.

Impeccably researched and vividly detailed, Orna Burdman weaves a captivating tale of courage, loyalty, and desire, bringing relatable characters and a beloved Biblical story to life.

Live Like a Startup

Top Israeli startup leader shares invaluable insights on creating genuine, lasting success in business—and in life.

Where does the startup journey begin? Startups are the epitome of untapped potential –turning “unsolvable” needs into a whole new opportunity for growth. Companies aspire to learn from the startup rulebook. Yet, when it comes to our personal lives, we opt to avoid those “unsolvable” problems and stick with the familiar and safe options: Do as instructed, walk the line, don’t stick out. In short: Don’t live your life like a startup.

According to Yaniv Rivlin, who revolutionized the e-scooter and vehicle-sharing industries as BIRD’s founding GM, the startup journey begins with us – when we adopt a “startup state of mind.” From his modest upbringing in the Israeli countryside to graduating from Harvard, all the way to a starry-eyed IPO in New York, Rivlin’s inspiring life journey demonstrates the advantages of risk-taking, the power of resilience in the face of failure, a healthy dose of “Chutzpah,” and how even a simple choice like taking the initiative can be a life-changing experience.

With excerpts from Nuseir Yassin (Nas Daily), former Israeli MK Stav Shaffir, Olympic gymnast Neta Rivkin and other inspiring “startup” figures from all walks of life – Live Like a Startup dares you on the path of success by asking the hard questions and opening your mind to what is possible. Most of all, it encourages you to enjoy the ride.

Freedom, fulfillment, and meaning. The Ten Eternal Laws of Life offers a groundbreakingly contemporary answer, channeling ancient wisdom for the modern age.

As the world grows increasingly complicated and overwhelming, it is not uncommon for us to feel out of control, perplexed, and shackled – wandering in search of our individual path to freedom. But the answer might come not from any new method – rather from the ancient wisdom of The Ten Commandments.

Using clear and concise language, author and spiritual mentor Dorit Dvora Ben-Dor takes us on a journey toward a wider understanding of the Ten Commandments – transforming the archaic guidelines into tools for profound personal development.

How does adultery stem from our own inner conflicts? What does the Sabbath have to do with introspection and self-awareness? And how do millennia-old texts refer to the modern concept of personal freedom?

By following the many vividly relatable examples throughout the book, we begin to unravel the authentic, holistic, and fulfilling approach to life – and what it means to follow the ten eternal laws.

Laugh It Up: Using Humor to Improve Your Health, Wealth, and Happiness

Global humor expert Shai Gelber reveals the #1 tool to dealing with all the things you should – and shouldn’t laugh about.

No one denies the incredible power of laughter and humor, with extensive research showing its beneficial properties to our well-being. It boosts confidence, diffuses stress, and is a massive part of our social structure.

So why aren’t we using it where it counts?

In Laugh it Up, professional humor expert Shai Gelber draws on years of research, practical experience, and inspiring accounts of success from across the globe to demonstrate just how crucial humor is to our general well-being and, more importantly, how we can apply it to promote our health, wealth, and our happiness and satisfaction.

Far more than a simple coping mechanism, humor can be the greatest tool in your arsenal for almost any situation in life. With (most) jokes aside, Gelber takes a serious approach to the subject and unpacks several underlying theories: Why we laugh at some things but not others; how humor moves and connects people; what mechanisms comedians use that we can apply; and how to develop your own “humoristic” philosophy.

We all strive to move up in the world. We want to be happier, richer, healthier – but worrying is not what will help get us there. Whether you're looking to improve your communication skills, boost your creativity, or simply have more fun – laughter is the best way up.

The Question of Choice

A revolutionary approach to free will and the human consciousness.

For centuries, the question of free will has been at the forefront of philosophical thought, tackled and questioned endlessly by humanity’s greatest thinkers. Science claims that information isn’t lost in the universe. On the other hand, it doesn’t accept the assumption that there is life after death. So, where does all the information man accumulate during his life, go?

We all want to believe that we are responsible for our own actions and have a measure of control over our lives. And yet, science, philosophy, and even religion thus far have not offered a satisfying explanation. It might be surprisingly simpler than we think.

In a refreshing and illuminating new take on a subject so central to human life, The Question of Choice delicately examines free will through a broad spectrum of disciplines – integrating history, philosophy, science, and metaphysics to provide a groundbreaking explanation that will challenge everything we’ve thought to this day.

That tore the world apart

A mother wants a son

A daughter needs a mother

It is only years later, when their neighbours gather in the living room to hear Anna’s stories, that Danusha finally realises her mother was never a cold unknowable sea but a storm-wracked sky – sometimes bright, sometimes dark, and always watching over her.

The Polish Girl is a heartbreaking and unforgettable historical novel by the author of international bestseller The Brothers of Auschwitz – perfect for fans of Antonio Iturbe and Edith Eger.

Attention Deficit Hyperactive Success

Turn struggles into success with a revolutionary new approach to raising children with ADHD.

Children with ADHD are no strangers to frustration – and neither are their parents. Raising kids with ADHD is a true struggle, especially when we can’t seem to “fix” the traits that we sometimes see as “broken.”

However, when we praise focus, organization, and academic abilities as the most important skills, we lose sight of equally important things like intelligence, curiosity, and creativity. Our children need to focus on success, not on failure, and these are exactly the qualities that are the blessing of ADHD. When nurtured and encouraged, these children can do more than just manage – they can thrive.

Author Zipi Kobrinski, a long-time ADHD coach and mother herself, encourages readers to stop thinking about how our children can succeed despite ADHD, and start imagining just what they can achieve thanks to ADHD.

Optimistic and down-to-earth, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Success offers a refreshing approach to provide parents and professionals with practical tools such as:

  • How to create a supportive home environment for your child
  • How to embrace the gifts and advantages that come with a scattered mind
  • How to encourage children with ADHD to realize their full potential
  • And how to overcome the stigmas and turn struggles into success

With decades of experience coaching children and families with ADHD, Zipi Kobrinski’s knowledge and expertise is a beacon of hope for any parent or therapist looking for a contemporary, effective approach to help children with ADHD reach their fullest potential.

I Don’t Know How She Does It meets The Big Short in a smart and racy debut with a uniquely brazen heroine.

It’s the end of the sweet, sweet 1990s, and I’m surrounded by success. Meaning, everyone around me is successful. I’m just the one who builds them up, so to speak. I’m caught in the middle of the emerging (testosterone-filled) hi-tech bubble, having to climb figurative (and literal) mountains just to get a “thank you.” Don’t you worry, though – I’m down with handling other people’s money for profit. You think I got it made? You try juggling a company, a husband, a family, clients, children, contractors, and an especially talkative cat in the middle of a global crisis.

Biting and uncompromising, D.R. Braun’s take on the power of assertive women in a male-dominant industry and the economic struggles that led to the 2008 crisis holds no punches, shining a bright light on the dramatic life of a modern working mom.

The Neckerchief Revolution

Education innovator and international expert Maya Wizel showcase the dramatic “full-scale change” required for designing better, more relevant education systems for all.

The so called “formal” and “nonformal” education systems are seemingly polar opposites. Where one system is didactic and academically oriented, the other is more flexible, and oriented towards problem-solving and social skills. Both systems can undoubtedly work simultaneously toward the same goal – but can they coexist together under one roof? What can formal educators in schools and in higher education adopt and learn from the experience of non-formal educators?

Through her methodical yet poignant research, lifelong education innovator Dr. Maya Wizel demonstrates how the values of youth movements, summer camps, and other non-formal educational settings can help guide the new generation of educators and policy makers. She brings the voices of educators who “crossed over” from the non-formal to the formal system, carrying with them values and practices that help fulfill and advance the current goals of formal education systems.

In her groundbreaking book, Dr. Wizel draws upon her extensive 25+ years of experience in various global education systems to demonstrate how the practical tools of non-formal education can have a profound impact by:

  • Increasing learner engagement and motivation through providing more choice.
  • Developing competencies, including creativity and teamwork, that are essential for the 21st century.
  • Empowering students to become self-directed learners.
  • Expanding the range of teaching methods through promoting active learning.
  • Improving communication skills and fostering positive relationships through enhanced dialogue.

Appealing and engaging for any educationally inclined reader, The Neckerchief Revolution is a concise, comprehensive look on the cutting-edge practices at the foreground of independent learning and futureproof education.

With remarkable resilience, tenacity, vision, and hope; with plenty of compassion and zero self-pity, The Light of Reason is a life-affirming, courage-inspiring road through a mind faced with its own mortality, and the inner peace that lies within every single one of us.

The Adventures of Bonny Hood in the Urban Desert

A modern classic that sails between childhood and adulthood, praised by bestselling author Galila Ron-Feder as “wonderful and pleasantly original.

As a boy, Bonny Hood wandered the streets of his hometown, pursuing the villains of an imaginary world. Seeking escape from a broken home and the harsh reality of real life, he saw himself as the brave hero of his own story, out to save the world – though he felt he had no one to save him.

As an adult, Bonny’s yearning to escape to a world of his own and find peace from the childhood traumas that plague him, leads him to the relative quiet of the desert. But a chance encounter with a stranger causes him to wonder – can peace truly be gained among the silent desert sands, or does it reside deep within, just waiting to be found?

Bonny’s adventures merge the urban with the rural, fantasy with truth, and the naïveté of childhood with the unforgiving reality of adulthood. In gentle prose and thoughtful reflection, author Yossi Ovadia weaves a whimsical tale you won’t be able to resist.

Foods That Made History

On tonight’s menu: the real stories (and popular myths) behind the culinary world’s famous dishes!

Which poisonous soup saved the life of its inventor? What made a certain dough-based dish catch the eye of an Italian queen? And how did Napoleon Bonaparte’s infamous conquest forever change the European kitchen?

Over three decades of culinary expertise brought Paris-trained Chef Rafael Agam to frequently ponder the nature of the famous dishes he prepared. More often than not, his questions were left largely unanswered; As Agam puts it, “Historians of the past tended to focus on subjects more “important” than food – like war and famine to name a few.”

From the musky prison cells of the Isle of Man to turbulent Chinese dynasties and lavish French castles, Agam crosses centuries and continents to pen the history surrounding the big names behind fine dining’s most famous cuisines. Armed with a chef’s knife and intuition, Foods That Made History is a captivating, entertaining, highly satisfying full-course menu for foodies and history lovers alike.

Mission: Tehran – A Mossad Special Agent Thriller

Acting Mossad Chief David Avivi faces a new nuclear threat from democracy’s greatest enemy, in the newest installment of this white-knuckle suspense series.

The trade sanctions imposed by the US and the West are crippling Iran’s economy. The high living costs and the staggering unemployment rate have led to widespread social unrest, only to be swiftly and ruthlessly crushed under the heels of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

As both the White House and UN are dumbfounded in the face of a new nuclear threat, David Avivi moves to formulate a response. Battle-hardened from years of service, Avivi has only so much time before the atomic clock strikes midnight, with one standing question at the heart of the operation:

Is the Iranian threat a bluff, or is nuclear war truly imminent?

Sharing the Promised Land: In Pursuit of Equality Between Jewish and Arab Citizens in Israel

A provocative manifesto that challenges the false notion of "coexistence" between Arabs and Jews in Israel and offers a groundbreaking blueprint for a truly shared society.

In this moving memoir, lifelong activist Shuli Dichter traces his own ideological transformation From an Israeli kibbutznik who as a Jew was raised to be a master of the Promised Land, to someone who now seeks complete and full equality for Jews and Arabs there. In twelve moving stories and six powerful reflections, Dichter takes readers along the bumpy path that is required for shaping fair and equal relations between Israel’s Jewish and Arab citizens. His insights and conclusions stem from his decades of daily experience as a Jew practicing partnership with Arab colleagues in the realm of civil society organizations.

Following a thorough and painful examination of the first century of Jewish-Arab relations, he suggests a profound conceptual change of Zionism, one that would draw on some of the valuable lessons learned by Diaspora Jewy in living among the nations. This transformation, Dichter argues, is a vital condition for the future of collective Jewish life in Israel.

Can Israel learn from this account? Can Diaspora Jews reshape their view of Israel after years of being shown a reality that never really existed?

Shuli Dichter – lifelong activist, formally executive director of shared society NGOs, has been researching and promoting equality and integration between Arab and Jewish citizens in Israel for over 30 years.

Sharing the Promised Land redefines what it means to be a Zionist in the 21st century. Dichter’s thoughtful insights and innovative proposals offer a controversial yet compelling argument for honest, lasting solutions to the power imbalance plaguing the two peoples living in the State of Israel.

How do you cope with an ill system, in desperate need of human attention?

We all depend on the healthcare system to keep us and our loved ones safe, healthy, and alive. But what does it mean for us if the very system responsible for our welfare is in desperate need of attention itself?

In Careless, practicing physician and medical educator Dr. Aviva Elad delves into how and why doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals are caught in a system that renders them unintentionally careless – and harmful.

Dr. Elad highlights a collection of potentially life-saving tips and recommendations for patients and their loved ones as they interact with their caregivers, drawn from her decades of experience from both sides of the healthcare system.

Combining specific case studies with her own personal experience, she demonstrates firsthand how overworking, understaffing, unreasonable expectations, and detachment, all contribute to the sickness of modern-day healthcare.

We deserve to live in a world where we can depend on our doctors to care and treat us more effectively – and while we may never be able to guarantee perfection, there are most certainly improvements within our reach.

Ignoring the constant attempts to dissuade her, Carmit begins her inquiry into one of the Kibbutz most scandalous founders – an infamous night guard named Jenia Levkowitz.

As she digs deeper into the story of Jenia’s life, her secrets and her fears, Carmit opens a Pandora’s Box with dire consequences for her and her community. In a tour-de-force of vivid and eloquent prose, Amira Keider encapsulates both the beauty and the dark side behind the mythos of community.

The night guard’s story is unexpected, horrifying, and very, very real.

Cannabis Wars: The Incredible True Story of the Medical Cannabis Underground

Instant crowdfunding success! • Hope and human compassion envelope this inspiring, eye-opening and heart wrenching true story exposing the systematic oppression and persecution of medicinal cannabis patients, and the group of underground “angels in disguise” fighting to bring the medicinal herb to those who need it most.

Early into his 40s, Tom Wegner received the one piece of news everybody fears; his father was diagnosed with cancer. Just like that, Wegner’s life course evaporated: One day he was living the life of a hotshot political campaigner, and the next he became the only caregiver for a terminal cancer patient.

The attempts to alleviate his father’s constant pain were Wegner’s first steps into the absurd, wonderful, mind-boggling world of medical cannabis. Cannabis Wars chronicles not only Wegner’s experiences with the medicinal herb, but the story of an entire movement that spurred out to fight for patients’ rights while facing bloody red tapes and stone-faced bureaucracy.

Dozens of activists, patients and professionals have shared their story and knowledge with Wegner’s book. From an underground movement of selfless angels to world-renowned doctors and researchers who sacrificed their names and livelihood for the good of others, Cannabis Wars gives a unique, never-seen-before glimpse into the medical world’s backyard: the draconic cannabis laws and their infuriating consequences, the special interest groups backing them, and the lives of those who are willing to pay a heavy price to help complete strangers in need.

Cannabis Wars gives a powerful voice to those previously unheard. Wegner pens the authentic story of a devoted community fighting for its very existence – men and women, cancer and epilepsy patients, parents of children on the autistic spectrum, pain syndromes patients, PTSD and shell-shocked veterans, and their awe-inspiring selflessness in the face of impossible circumstances.

One Day You'll Thank Me

A young girl’s dream of escaping the circumstances of her birth and lineage takes form in this new literary voice.

There are a lot of things 5-year-old Yanina Lishanski doesn’t understand. She doesn’t understand why she only sees her family in old photographs, or why she must never talk about her parents’ life in Germany before 1950. She doesn’t understand why the neighborhood children mock her accent, or why she has to go to sleep hungry each night.

But Yanina also understands many things. Like how she always wants more out of life. More from her education, more from her emotionally abusive mother and her violent father. More from her friends and loved ones.

Encapsulating the immigrant experience of the 1950s through the eyes of a child born to a world she will forever be a stranger to, Yanina’s complex relationships with her family, her sister, and her childhood romances all pose a fascinating question. How much are we really slaves to our upbringing, and the circumstances into which we’re born? Can Yanina escape her fate, and become something more? Or will she be forever haunted by the words of her mother, “One day you’ll thank me for this”?

The Women of the Berlin Salon

The Age of Enlightenment will bring more hardship than reason, as three young women set out to shape their futures – and pay the ultimate price.

By the end of the 18th century, German high society is on the precipice of enlightenment. Rachel Levin, the restless daughter in a successful family of merchants, forms a strong and lasting connection with Henrietta and Dorothea – each of them a member of known and well-respected Jewish families. Yet the three of them are far from respected, or free. In a society where a woman’s value is measured by the man in front of her, the three independent-thinking women set out to make their own paths in life – as Berlin’s most popular Salonnières.

United by their passion on the backdrop of rising German nationalism, where being born Jewish, not to mention a woman, is far from advantageous – Rachel, Henrietta, and Dorothea each face challenges of the mind, soul, and heart. Finding their place in history will not only put them at risk. They will soon find their dreams can cost them far more than their status.

Jewish Identity

In this intriguing work based on years of research, Dr. Ruth Shamir Popkin guides readers through critical issues at the center of debate, both in the Jewish world in Israel and in the Jewish Diaspora that are critical to the continuity of the Jewish people.

The book elegantly addresses multiple questions revolving around Jewish identity, such as:

  • *Who is a Jew?
  • *Are Jews a nation or no more than a religious community?
  • *What does Jewish identity look like today, and how has it been affected by antisemitism?
  • *How do Diaspora Jews view Israeli identity and how do Israelis view Diaspora Jews?

Dr. Shamir Popkin reviews these complex and continually changing Jewish identities. She contends that Jews have no alternative – if their overarching identity is to be preserved then they must internalize multiculturalism to create an inclusive Jewish identity for the 21st century, in spite of the acute conflicts.

Adaptive Teaching

Adaptive teaching does not endeavor to “fix” anything, because no one is broken. Its purpose is to accommodate education so that it is suited to all students, in light of goals, needs, and characters.

When educators are asked about inclusion and acceptance of all students, their honest response is that inclusion is an important part of the educational assignment, but the understanding of how to apply such a concept to the classroom is often lacking and considered the domain of special education teachers alone.

However, as social and educational awareness to this issue grows, winds of change are blowing. Educators must adapt their strategies and approaches, their methods and means to the needs and singularity of each of their students.

Adaptive Teaching offers a new, relevant, realistic approach to inclusive education. It includes both theory and practical tools, but is dependent on educators’ willingness to contemplate themselves through this new attitude and adapt themselves to their students’ needs and today’s educational reality.

Dr. Gilat Trabelsi is a researcher, educational counselor, and senior teacher training expert. In her book, she shares crucial information that will help educators:

*Reduce the anxiety surrounding the demands of adaptive teaching

*Form awareness and opinions regarding adaptive teaching as a worldview

*Learn how to design functions and skills in all fields of knowledge, based on accumulative experience

Is Covid 19 The Flood 2.0?

Is the COVID-19 pandemic simply a devastating turn of events… or is there a far deeper meaning behind it?

COVID-19 shook the world like nothing ever before. For the first time in a long time, a pandemic spread globally, and no one was safe from its wrath. While scientists have been busy with how, when, where, and what can be done to stop it, few have stopped to think about a far more important, fundamental question: why?

Through the wisdom and teachings of the bible, this book endeavors to explain the cause and meaning behind the virus, and to guide humanity on its path to redemption.

Writ in Water

This book, based on wide-ranging research on water, views the world through the rippling, complex lens of water. It looks at the emergence of civilizations and their decay, delves into creation myths, ponders the place of water in the human psyche as expressed in art and poetry and folklore, considers its role as a factor of production, a source of energy, a conduit of transportation, and a consumer good, examines changing concepts of physical and spiritual cleanliness, and notes the magical powers of springs and wishing wells and rainmakers.

It reveals how this colorless, tasteless, and odorless substance has made such an impact on our bodies and our souls. Like water itself, it meanders far and wide, and it may, just possibly, restore our sense of wonder at this elixir of life.

Nina Selbst's pellucid and friendly style of writing and her overflowing enthusiasm for her subject assure the reader not only an enlightening experience but also a pleasurable one.

He was caught taking the yellow patch off his clothes and trying to sneak back into the city.

Many books have been written about the experiences of Europe’s Jews during the Second World War, but few stand comparison with this account.

A varied cast of characters – ranging from sadistic paramilitaries to skeletal inmates engaged in a grotesque struggle for survival – is brought vividly to life. The style is terse, direct and uncompromising, making no concessions to sentimentality and eschewing conventional literary flourishes. Interspersed in the text there are quotations from various religious sources – Jewish, Christian, and mystical – underlining the author’s belief in the survival of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
