Books from Jewish Lights at Jewish Book Mall

You know, if you ever thought that Jewish books were old and stuffy and musty - and let us humbly point out that you would have been wrong in any case - have a look at some of the great books coming from Jewish Lights Publishing. Where else, but at the Jewish Book Mall page devoted to books from Jewish Lights?

This is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared, by Rabbi Alan Lew

While it may seem that the Jewish holidays are "late" this year - actually, Rosh Hashanah is always right on time, on the first of Tishrei (though sometimes September can come early or late) - there is more to preparing for the new year than showing up to shul at the appointed time. Rabbi Alan Lew guides you on a spiritual journey starting with the month of Elul, going through the days of awe as part of the penitential season in Judaism.

Rabbi Lew is a gifted and sensitive thinker and writer. This is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared is a gem of a book! Official Jewish Book Mall rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars.

See Jewish Book Mall - Jewish and Israeli Music - CDs, tapes for albums by close to 300 different musicians, and almost 900 different Jewish CDs, from klezmer to Israeli to Yiddish to cantorial to Yemenite, with a little kosher reggae and other interesting concoctions thrown in to boot.

Jewish music makes a great holiday gift, too.
