    Title: And Every Single One Was Someone
    Sub-title: Regular Edition
    By (author): Phil Chernofsky
    ISBN10-13: 9652295914 : 9789652295910
    As a maths and Jewish studies teacher in a Jewish day school, Chernofsky wanted a different and meaningful way for his students to relate to the Holocaust. From there evolved this book that has just one word, six million times JEW. What would a book of six million Jews look like? This is a volume meant for library and institution presentations on the Holocaust, a daring attempt to give some small sense of the overwhelming number -- six million.
    About The Author:

Since 1998, he has hosted Torah Tidbits Audio, a shiur on the weekly parsha with witty insights.

    Reviews:
    Mishpacha Magazine, March 2014, featured a lengthy and very moving study of this book, the author, and the emotion behind the project. Worth reading - see the review below!

    "Six million perished in the most catastrophic event in the history of the world. Every single one ó baby, teenager, man, woman ó had a face, a name. One million children were cut down before their prime. There is a chamber at Yad Vashem that overwhelms with innumerable photos of these missing children. Everyone was slain for the singular crime of being born Jews. Six million! Can you comprehend it? Didnít think so. New York-born Phil Chernofsky, educational director of the Orthodox Union (OU) Israel Center in Jerusalem, conceived this book to help you grasp that figure. As he doesnít have six million photos to display, Chernofsky lists each victimís crime: Jew. The crime of being born a Jew is reiterated in 40 columns across each page. A very big book, consisting one word "Jew," repeated six million times over 1,250 pages, is not a book that you read with your eyes. It is a concept that stirs your heart." im Boxer, 15minutesmagazine.com Gefen, 1250 pages, $80.00 Amazon.com Price: $53.93)

    Title: A Time to Kill, A Time to Heal
    Sub-title: An Israeli Navy SEAL's Journey
    By (author): Yotam Dagan
    ISBN10-13: 9657023475 : 9789657023471
    "Looking ahead into the dark, my compass, depth gauge and diving watch confirmed that we were headed towards our target in enemy waters. The mission was clear: to eliminate ships at anchor, ships that were planned to carry out an attack against civilians in Israel. Onboard them were Zodiac rubber boats, AK-47 Kalashnikov assault rifles, RPG anti-tank rockets and plenty of ammunition. The Palestinian terrorists who had been trained for their deadly mission were set to execute their attack two nights later. This was a race against time. After a stealth approach into the harbor, I identified my target and attached the explosives. For a moment, my memories took me back in time. I was hiding in a bush, an 11-year-old boy, during a terrorist attack, escaping sure death. Activating the time-controlled detonators, I felt the closure of another circle of destiny. An attack against my home, was thwarted. Yotam Dagan, an Israeli navy SEAL, shares his personal journey from being a soldier and fighting wars to healing the invisible wounds of psychological trauma and PTSD. This book is an important account of how human courage and determination, followed by suffering and vulnerability could leverage growth on an individual, community and national level."

    Title: Abraham The Father of the Jewish People
    Sub-title: A Children's Companion to the Bible
    By (author): Rabbi Dr. Nathan Drazin
    ISBN10-13: 9652299707 : 9789652299703
    "Rabbi Dr. Nathan Drazin was a born storyteller. In his synagogue, every Saturday evening, just before the end of the Sabbath, a huge crowd of people would sit down at a very long table for the traditional seudah shelishit meal. When they finished eating, Rabbi Dr. Drazin would tell them a story. This book, written in the 1940s and brought to the reading public now for the first time, records some of those enthralling stories of our ancestors, bringing Jewish lore alive in an animated recounting of the origin and lifetime of the father of the Jewish people. Children will enjoy these fascinating midrashic tales about Abrahamís birth and miraculous upbringing, his struggle against the worship of idols, his survival of attempts to kill him, his dealings with his mother Amtaelai and his father Terah the seller of idols as well as the wicked King Nimrod, and much more."
    About The Author:
    Rabbi Dr. Nathan Drazin, who passed away in 1976, was a highly respected scholar. He wrote books on the Torah, Talmud, and Jewish law, as well as many articles on these subjects. He was the rabbi of Shaarei Tfiloh Congregation in Baltimore, Maryland, for thirty-one years. This is Drazinís second book of stories from the Hebrew Bible. The first, published soon after his death, was Legends Worth Living.

    Title: After Isis
    Sub-title: America, Iran and the Struggle for the Middle East
    By (author): Rabbi Shalom Hammer
    ISBN10-13: 9657023092 : 9789657023099
    This book, based on four years of on-the-ground reporting, research in ten countries in the Middle East, a thousand hours of interviews with key players and access to generals, spies, policymakers, soldiers and refugees, is the first comprehensive look at the defeat of ISIS and the future reshaping of the Middle East. It provides a unique window into the battle for the heart and soul of the Muslim world and lays out why we need to be informed about changes on the ground after the defeat of ISIS. More than seventy countries are members of the international coalition formed in 2014 to defeat Islamic State (ISIS). After ISIS provides a sobering blueprint for how the US and regional powers will re-shape the region in years to come. Understanding these events and the choices ahead will determine if ISIS and similar ideologies reemerge, whether a new war between the US, its allies and Iran comes in the wake of ISIS, or if a younger generation of leaders can carve out a new Middle East. As ISIS recedes, the world is at a unique historic crossroads in the Middle East. Decisions made now in the region and in Washington matter more than ever. Tehran and the US are increasingly on a collision course to struggle over the vacuum left behind by ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

    Title: Amazing Jewish Heroes
    By (author): David Richard Goldberg
    ISBN10-13: 9652298816 : 9789652298812
    There have been many amazing heroes down through the ages. The achievements of American heroes like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln certainly resonate, but how many heroes of Jewish heritage come to mind? Each of the eleven Jewish heroes presented in this volume, some famous and others less so, overcame tremendous challenges to achieve greatness, persevering through their faith in God and belief in freedom and human dignity. Queen Esther maintained her traditions in the house of Ahasuerus for nine years while also hiding her true origins, and then orchestrated the salvation of the Jewish Persians at great personal risk. When urgent funding was needed for the Continental Army in 1781, General George Washington turned to none other than a financial genius named Haym Salomon. Felix Zandman survived World War II as a teenager by living with three others in a pit for seventeen months, and then went on to graduate from the Sorbonne and found a company that was innovational in the world of electronics and communication. Our heroes many feats and great accomplishments, and their dedication to freedom and its ideals, are truly amazing, and their stories stand the test of time.

    Title: An Extra Seat
    By (author): Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld Illustrated by: J B Herzfeld, C B Herzfeld
    ISBN10-13: 9652298735 : 9789652298737
    This children's book, based on Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld's personal story growing up in 1970s New York, focuses on the plight of the Jewish Zionist prisoners brought to the world's attention by the highly publicised arrest of Anatoly Sharansky. Herzfeld's mentor, Rabbi Avi Weiss, plays a central role, encouraging his congregation to see the refuseniks (whose simple aim was making aliyah to Israel) as brothers and sisters whose rights should be fought for with unremitting public protest. The two child protagonists, Sarah and Joseph, experience the reward of these efforts as they witness Sharansky's remarkable release, nine years into his 14-year sentence. The book provides a message of hope especially to children who are encouraged to see the value of their ideals, values and actions. This book is has as its central premise human and Torah-based Jewish values, such as: While it may not be our job to complete a task, we are obligated to try. We have the greatest responsibility to help our own family. All of the Jewish people are one family. Thus we are all responsible to help each other.
    About The Author:
    Shmuel Herzfeld is the rabbi of Ohev Sholom The National Synagogue, and the oldest Orthodox synagogue in Washington, DC. He received rabbinic ordination from the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary, an affiliate of Yeshiva University, and a master's degree in Jewish history from Bernard Revel Graduate School of Yeshiva University. His first book was Fifty-Four Pick Up: Fifteen-Minute Inspirational Torah Lessons. He lives in Washington, DC.
