Yes, you’re right; we haven’t been posting too many new things on our blog lately—but not because we’ve been sleeping on the job! While so many others have been out vacationing, relaxing by the pool, and taking fun family trips, we’ve been working hard to prepare a new season’s worth of books for you. And now that the summer is coming to a close, we’re just about ready to release all our latests and greatests and start the new year off with a bang!
So, you ask, what’s new on our menu? Well, to take that question literally for a moment, we actually have lots of fabulous fresh food ideas and recipes up our sleeves—all from our newest cookbook, The At-Home Gourmet, by Sarah Lasry, author of the bestselling The Dairy Gourmet. Sure to become a winner like The Dairy Gourmet itself, The At-Home Gourmet will tease your taste buds to no end, until you actually go out, buy yourself a copy of it, and try out those recipes on your own, for a spectacular Yom Tov seudah or for any other occasion!
Then, for all you readers who like nothing better than a good medical drama, we have a brand new one in the wings. Struggle to the Summit is the inspirational story of a young wife and mother on the long and arduous road to recovery after an extremely dangerous and delicate neurological surgery.
Of course, Elul being Elul, what better time is there to work on our middos and service of Hashem than now? And Israel Bookshop has the sefarim you’ll need for that, too. If you’re a parent or educator, you’ll love our chinuch sefer, Cornerstone of Chinuch, written by prominent mechanech and long-time Head-teacher (principal) of the largest Chareidi elementary school in England, Rabbi Yonoson Yodaiken. Based on ten distinct, tried-and-true strategies, the book focuses on how to instill good middos in our children. You already read and enjoyed an excerpt from Cornerstone of Chinuch in our summer edition of The Next Page magazine; now you can look forward to having the full pleasure of reading the book in its entirety.
Any avid reader is, more likely than not, familiar with the popular Torah Tavlin series. Now, just in time for Parshas Bereishis, Torah Tavlin Vol. 2 is ready to be released! Sure to add lots of “spice” and enjoyment to your weekly review of the parshah, this latest Torah Tavlin book will be a welcome addition to your bookshelf.
And once on the subject of “Volume 2,” here’s another one of those coming soon: A Time to Laugh, A Time to Listen, Volume 2, by Rabbi Yehoshua Kurland. Readers loved Rabbi Kurland’s way of combining humor with fundamental hashkafah lessons in A Time to Laugh, A Time to Listen Vol. 1, and now you’ll be able to enjoy more of that with his newest book!
Well, that’s for starters, folks! And while you’re busy thinking about all these upcoming releases, be sure to keep your ears attuned for other new books… There’s still more to come…
