[Mr. Goodfriend (G) is entertaining Eliezer (E) and his younger brother Aaron (A) on the back porch. Watermelon is being served.]

G.            Last year I visited a farm… and I saw watermelons growing alongside the steps of the… workers’ cottages.

A.            Why did they plant them near the steps?

G.            They did not. In the evenings they had held watermelon feasts on their steps and the slippery seeds had shot in all directions just as they do here. That is the purpose of their slipperiness.

A.            Do you say that they are purposefully slippery? Is that not merely due to the moisture of the melon?

G.            Rub the melon juice [water] between your fingers: it is not slippery. The seeds are coated with slippery mucus which causes them to fly out under pressure. Keep Reading…

50% Off Mission Possible

July 6, 2010

It’s the classic case: You had a flight to catch for an extremely important visit or appointment somewhere, and you were running late—and missed the flight. And the flight did not crash.

Why me?! you think to yourself. Why did this have to happen to me?

Of course, when the stakes are higher, and the challenges and ordeals that arise are of even greater proportions, the question “Why me?” can become even stronger and more painful. How are we, as believing Jews, supposed to view challenges in life? How are we to strengthen our emunah and bitachon in Hashem when faced with adversity?

In Mission Possible!, popular and beloved author Rabbi Eliezer Parkoff, a rosh yeshivah in Jerusalem, provides us with valuable insight into this critical area. Using Talmudic sources, divrei Torah, and true stories, Rabbi Parkoff gives us a glimpse into the purpose of life’s challenges, helping us understand the function of suffering in this world. The second part of the book is an English adaptation of the Malbim’s introduction to his commentary on Sefer Iyov, which, as is well-known, is the classic work on human suffering. The Malbim probes this topic in depth, providing a firm hashkafic foundation for all, on how to view challenges and affliction.

As we mourn the Churban Beis Hamikdash during this time period of the Three Weeks, Mission Possible! is the perfect book to turn to for comfort, strength, and inspiration. It will completely transform your understanding of nisyonos in this world—and will transform you, too, in the process!

ONLINE ONLY SPECIAL: Mission Possible will be available at a special discount of 50% through the three weeks.

50% off Peace in Your Palace

June 1, 2010

Lace, tulle, or satin on the gown? Farberware or Calphalon pots? A Shevy or a Kiki wig? A basement apartment (you have your own washer and dryer) or an apartment in a building (you have a built-in social life)? These are the decisions and subjects on the mind of a happy kallah.

Okay, so those are not the only topics on her mind. Hopefully, in addition to all the fun (and exhausting!) materialistic preparations for her upcoming wedding, she’s preparing spiritually for married life, too. And with Peace in Your Palace on her night table, she’s sure to begin her new marriage on the right foot.

Peace in Your Palace is the English translation of the best-selling Shalvah B’armenosayich, which has had several re-printings, in addition to being translated into Yiddish, too. It is the book containing the blueprints for how to build the most magnificent edifice—your very own bayis ne’eman b’Yisrael. Chock-full with real-life stories, wisdom and sayings of our Torah leaders, and practical advice for the Jewish wife, this book will enhance any marriage.

The book is available here for special 50% discount until June 11th.

Here’s a short excerpt:

Protecting Yourself

As the Chafetz Chaim noted, a person should never speak negatively about himself. Even within your own home, not every mistake or failure needs to be reported. Sometimes it’s best to keep those minor errors to yourself.

The newlyweds were leisurely opening their wedding presents in their new apartment. Shoshana carefully put the pretty set of dishes away in a kitchen cupboard. She couldn’t wait to use them at their first home-cooked meal.

To her dismay, as she was washing the dishes the following night, a plate slipped out of her hands and crashed against the bottom of the sink. Shoshana picked it up quickly, but it was too late—three ugly, jagged pieces were all that remained of the plate. Keep Reading…
