Days Are Coming

May one enter the Bais Hamikdash...

...with a baby carriage?
...with a wallet/checkbook/credit card?
...in order to daven?
...in order to observe the goings-on there?

In Days Are Coming you will find the answers to these, as well as many other, practical questions regarding conduct in the Bais Hamikdash.

Based on dozens of new teshuvos from Gedolei Yisroel.

Includes stories, insights, and practical guidance.

Between the Tides

Fraidy Morris is the perfect catch. Someone to envy—or is she? 

Her mother-in-law is a better mother to her kids than she is. Who wants plain old mommy when you can have Super Savta? 

Ruthie is feeling the pangs of empty nest. Her baby isn’t a baby anymore. Then she reunites with her old friend Chaviva, whose nest was never filled. 

The bumps start early for newlyweds Hila and Yaakov. Is their marriage over before it’s barely started? 

What is Michal to think when her friend Gila spent so much money on an over-the-top lavish vort, money that should have gone to paying back the rather large loan Gila took from Michal and her husband? 

Life is full of ups and downs. When the tide rises, we feel like we’re drowning in a tsunami. When the tide is down, everything that looked perfect on the surface is revealed, and nothing is the way we wanted it. But then sometimes we find ourselves Between the Tides. And it’s in those rare moments that we can take a deep breath and prepare ourselves for the next wave. 

There’s nothing more satisfying than fiction that captures the ebbs and flows of life perfectly. There’s nothing more satisfying than Sara Wiederblank fiction. 

With this riveting collection, including all new, never-before-published stories, Sara never disappoints.

More Than Meets the Eye

The school was immersed in darkness; the parking lot a sea of black. Michoel slowed to a walk, and began to circle the building… 
Voices! 
Michoel froze. His heart beat wildly, and despite the winter cold, sweat broke out on his face and neck. He pressed himself up against the brick wall of the building, hoping that the shadows would well cast their spell of invisibility. 
It was one voice, Michoel realized… One voice, and it was coming nearer… In the darkness, Michoel strained his eyes… Could it be? Was it…? 

It’s not easy moving to a new country when you’re twelve years old, and for Michoel Lederman, whose family moved from England to America all because of his sister Rikki’s Cerebral Palsy, life seems to be going from bad to worse. 

Then some terrifying criminal activity starts to happen in Rikki’s special school. Michoel and his new friend Nachum embark on an investigation mission to track down the person responsible for the sabotage against Orah V’simchah, but soon things spiral out of control, as an unknown but sinister enemy does his utmost to ensure that Orah V’simchah meets a bitter end, and the Ledermans find themselves under direct attack… 

Join Michoel and Nachum as they don their detective caps, dodging danger from all directions — and learning some important life lessons along the way — until the final surprising twist of the story… 

Because all too often in life, there’s a whole lot More Than Meets the Eye

Tatteh Said Run

“Children, I forbid you to enter the ghetto! Those trapped in the ghetto will be transported to the Place of No Return…You must pack your most vital belongings immediately…and flee for your lives!” 
 With his father’s final plea ringing in his ears, young Pinchos Yeshaya Kornbluh said goodbye to his days as a serious and diligent bachur in yeshivah, and began his escape flight, always attempting to keep one step ahead of the Nazis. 
 And so began one long chain of miracles for Pinchos Yeshaya. Split-second decisions, whose outcomes often spelled life or death, were his constant companions. From his time in the Hungarian army, where the commander of his battalion, noting the youngster’s daring spirit and leadership qualities, soon put him in charge—even submitting to the boy’s decisions himself—through the misery of the Gunskirchen concentration camp, from where he was eventually liberated, Pinchos Yeshaya persevered. He learned to look danger right in the eye, to keep his cool and outsmart even the wiliest of German guards, armed only with his pure faith, his zeal to keep as many mitzvos as possible, and his determination to stay alive. 
 Just as Tatteh had mandated.

Those Who Never Yielded

There were Jews in the ghettoes who refused to yield to Satan’s reign of terror, who, from the very outset, rebelled against his regime of enslavement… 
These chassidic rebels completely ignored the tyrant’s regime, paid no attention to their decrees, and never yielded… 
Who were these courageous young men who dared to defy Hitler’s command? Who was the leader of this brave band? And where did the group’s members get the inner fortitude to stand up for their convictions, even as darkness, doom, and death swirled around them? 
What did it take to be counted among those who never yielded?

Not by Accident

It seemed to be happening in sickening slow motion, yet mockingly too fast for action. My body rocked in horror; my eyes bulged. The crash was ear-piercing; metal clashing against metal, shattering glass, and screeching rubber wheels. The deafening noise echoed upward, curling above the tree-tops with the rising plume of ashy smoke. 

And then—nothing. A strange, eerie silence filled the night air. 

A devastating car crash brings life as Leeba Hartman knew it to a grinding halt. Her friends, her relationship with her sister Rosie, her whole attitude toward life…everything suddenly comes into question in wake of the tragedy and trauma that Leeba experiences. And deeply enmeshed within all the other roiling emotions is the deep-seated, secret guilt that she knows she will always carry around with her…

Rosie Hartman has a secret, too. A secret so huge and so awful that she herself can hardly believe it… But if all evidence points to its certainty, it has to be true, doesn’t it? On the other hand, is she willing to risk whatever remnants remain of her close ties with Leeba, by concurring with the theory? 

Not by Accident is the poignant story of two sisters at odds with each other…yet whose closeness, inexplicably, still can’t be denied. It is a vivid portrayal of the very real issues so many frum teenagers grapple with nowadays, such as self-esteem, peer pressure, and the complex relationship present so often between teens and themselves and those closest to them. It is a book that will touch the most sensitive chord within you, causing you to cry, to laugh, and to grow…not by accident.
