Caravan

Join a journey of millennia in this remarkable collection of short stories from popular author Etka Gitel Schwartz. From the splitting of the Red Sea to the hedgerows of Normandy, from ancient Jerusalem to the Catskills: here are the voices of children and adults, paratroopers, pilgrims, tollbooth operators and rabbi detectives, united all in triumphant, passionate celebration of the Jewish spirit. 

An impossible choice is offered in a tiny jail before dawn—and death. An injured U.S. Marine finds himself a stranger in his own life, a child robbed of name or identity inherits a family of millions, and joyous multitudes throng the roads to ancient Jerusalem. Two mothers exchange babies and change history, Eisenhower’s Cow visits a board meeting, the CIA’s top balabuste comes out of retirement, and the Rotberg family unwittingly wreaks matchmaking havoc. From the oilfields of Galveston and the battlefields of Chickamauga, the bonfires of Meron and the frigid haystacks of the Hungarian border, emerge adventures both true and fictional to entertain, ignite and inspire. 

Join the Caravan of Jewish experience. sojourn through travail, through hope and discovery, and emerge exultant. drink deeply from the oasis of the soul and taste history, heritage and destiny, today and tomorrow and a thousand generations glittering across the sky.

Rav Schwab on Chumash

He was known as the Ish Ha’emes (Man of Truth), the one who cringed from the slightest deviance from the straight and narrow. His daily tefillos, recited with genuine tears and a powerful depth of emotion, were legendary. The intimate relationship he had with his Creator defies description. 

He was Rav Shimon Schwab zt”l, one of the greatest gedolim of recent times. Though he passed away nearly twenty years ago, leaving a void of unimaginable proportions in the Torah world, Rav Schwab left behind a precious legacy—his writings, his sefarim, and his divrei Torah, all of which are as beautiful and as relevant today as the day Rav Schwab penned them. 

In Rav Schwab on Chumash, readers are given a window into the brilliance and depth of Rav Shimon Schwab. This sefer includes both Rav Schwab’s dazzling insights on the parshah, as well as many stories, vignettes, and lessons from the life and writings of the Rav that help illustrate various points brought out in the book. 

Many of the chiddushei Torah in this volume were originally written in Rav’s Schwab’s magnum opus, Ma’ayan Beis Hosho’eivah, and have now been carefully selected, translated, and written over. Others are original chiddushim that have never been published before, which were heard from the Rav by his family and students. The anecdotes from the Rav’s life and excerpts from his speeches and essays, which accompany most of the divrei Torah in this book, are all thought-provoking, stimulating, and profoundly inspiring. 

A beautiful mini-biography of Rav Schwab’s life as an opener to the book, as well as “The Rav and His Mission” at the close of the book, further complete the richness of this sefer, providing readers with an additional dimension of this holy tzaddik who lived in our midst just two decades ago. 

For those looking to enhance their understanding of Chumash—and of life—by way of the insights offered by a venerable gadol hador, Rav Schwab on Chumash is the sefer to learn, to internalize, and to cherish.

The Well-Spiced Life

As a young woman, acclaimed author Barbara Bensoussan always thought she’d marry a nice Jewish boy from New York, just like her mother. But her life took a distinctly different turn when she entered the Orthodox world and her nice Jewish boy turned out to hail from Casablanca! Suddenly she found herself the Sephardic version of the bride-who-knew-nothing!

Now she had a husband who thought the chicken soup she adored was little more than flavored water, and who’d grown up eating the head of a lamb—teeth showing—on Rosh Hashanah. As the years passed and her family grew, she did her best to absorb the culture and cuisine of the Sephardic world— some of which, she laments, is still clinging to her waistline.

The literary result of Barbara’s foray into the Sephardic world is The Well-Spiced Life, an authentic food memoir that combines the best of pleasure reading with excellent recipes. Packed with delightful anecdotes, culinary tips culled from years spent cooking for a “mixed” (Ashkenazic/Sephardic) family, loads of exotic recipes, and an abundance of comic relief (a necessary ingredient in every culinary undertaking!), it’s a book that belongs on the shelf of every respectable balabusta, Sephardic and Ashkenazic alike.

As they say in Casablanca: bon appetit!
