Torah Mietzion Bemidbar New Readings In Tanach. Torah MiEtzion presents original, insightful essays on the Bible by the rabbis and scholars of Yeshivat Har Etzion, one of today's most vibrant and influential schools of modern biblical interpretation. Since its founding in Israel in 1968, Yeshivat Har Etzion has emphasized Bible study alongside Talmud study in order to foster what its founder, Rabbi Yehuda Amital z"l, called an "organic understanding" of Torah and Torah philosophy. The result has been the development of a unique, analytically rigorous, creative, interpretive method that is infused with a profound quest for meaning. This volume of Torah MiEtzion, which examines the Torah portions of the Book of Bemidbar, includes essays by Rabbis Amnon Bazak, Ezra Bick, Yonatan Grossman, Menachem Leibtag, Mosheh Lichtenstein, Elchanan Samet, Chanoch Waxman, Dr. Yael Ziegler, and other leading scholars.

Tzadka Mimeni. The notion of personal responsibility sounds so obvious that for generations it was self-understood. It was associated with maturity, reasoned decision making, acceptance of consequences for one s actions, admissions of guilt and wrongdoing when appropriate, thrift and decency, concern for others and for society at large. But the rise of the entitlement generation has transformed the way we live and look at the world. Too many feel that others i.e., the rest of society are responsible to raise them, feed them, clothe them, educate them, find them spouses, jobs and homes, give them health care, defend them, and satisfy all their physical and emotional needs. That mindset debilitates both the individual and the society; the ethic of personal responsibility needs to be revived for the welfare of both. Fortunately, personal responsibility is at the very heart of the Torah. Rooted in the fundamental doctrine of free choice, the Torah compels us to take responsibility for ourselves and others and shape our personal and national destinies accordingly. This unique book, in the format of essays on each Torah portion, extracts from the Torah itself applications of the Jewish ethic of personal responsibility in areas as diverse as ethics, dating, marriage, parenting, family life, employment, divine service, military service, acts of kindness, repentance, private property ownership, wealth, Torah study, mitzvot, modesty, justice, gratitude, sensitivity, Jewish national life, holiness and more, leaving us with a profound vision for modern man and his search for meaning and happiness.

The Hitler We Loved Why. What, other than love, can explain the German people's glad welcome of this humble, but thoroughly dedicated savior from the Eastern Marches? What, other than love, can explain how the people of Greater Germany remained with him in bad times and good, for better or for worse? What, other than love, can explain the fact that those who remember him love him still?We loved him because he stood for the best that was in us, and as Our Leader, demanded of us our best. It was never Hitler's Germany. It shall always be: Germany's Hitler, the man loved by his people.This is why we loved him...
