Book Excerpt – Power Points

February 8, 2012

It’s Shabbos morning. You’ve just finished davening at shul and wishing “mazel tov” at three kiddushim, and it’s already late. Your family and guests are waiting for you. They’re ready to begin the Shabbos meal—but you are not! You’re busy racking your brain, mentally thumbing through different divrei Torah, trying to find something…something…something to say on the parshah—and quick!

Does this scenario sound familiar? In today’s fast-paced world, with everyone trying to juggle a million different things while running on the treadmill of everyday life, it’s very understandable to find yourself short on time just when you need to come up with an appropriate vort for your Shabbos table.

That’s why Power Points, in the few short months since it’s been released, has become such a wonderful asset to so many people. Finally, here is a sefer in which you can find a host of vertlach on each parshah and for each Yom Tov…within minutes! To the point and with a point, the short stories and insights in Power Points will most certainly enhance your Shabbos and Yom Tov table, with only minimal time and effort on your part. And to make it even more convenient for you, the vertlach are divided according to the three Shabbos meals, so no matter at which point of Shabbos you open the book, you are sure to find something that fits the bill for exactly what you need.

Why not see for yourself? You will be amazed at the beauty Power Points can lend to your Shabbos and Yom Tov table.

Riding the Waves

February 6, 2012

“Mazel tov! My cousin is engaged!”

“Wow! Mazel tov! To who?”

“To my neighbor’s son’s classmate. And you’ll never guess how the shidduch happened…”

Shidduch stories” have an intrigue all to themselves. While some are lucky enough to find their bashert in a relatively easy way (“The shadchan just happens to know my mother and his father, and one day he just happened to think of the two of us!”), others have long sagas of how their miracle happened. Whatever the case, the common factor among any and all shidduchim is the Hand of Hashem so clearly apparent throughout. And that is why the “shidduch stories” in Riding the Waves are such an inspiration for those still “in the parshah.” They convey the unshakeable truth that being “in the parshah,” looking for one’s bashert, is no different than any other nisayon, and that emunah and bitachon in our loving Father are the keys with which doors can open for everyone—including the door to the wedding hall…

But besides for providing chizuk (and no small amount of entertainment!), Riding the Waves is also an incredibly practical guide for singles and their families. It explores important topics such as initiating better communication while dating, medical issues in shidduchim, how to cope as a newlywed with single friends left behind, and much more. It also includes selected essays of inspiration from renowned speakers/authors such as Rav Mendel Weinbach, Rabbi Yissocher Frand, Rabbi Paysach Krohn, Rabbi Dovid Kaplan, Rebbetzin Sarah Meisels, Lori Palatnik, Chana Levitan, and others.

So if you are an eligible young lady or man, in addition to looking your best and using only your best manners (no ordering spaghetti while on a date!), pick up a copy of Riding the Waves and let the inspiration wash over you… And may we hear good news from you soon, too!
