After reading this I have moderated my position." - Reader.

On the day her first book came out—a new translation of Dark Night of the Soul by Saint John of the Cross—Mirabai Starr’s daughter, Jenny, was killed in a car accident. “My spiritual life began the day my daughter died,” writes Mirabai. Even with decades of spiritual practice and a deep immersion in the greatest mystical texts, she found herself utterly unprepared for “my most powerful catalyst for transformation, my fiercest and most compassionate teacher.” With Caravan of No Despair, Mirabai shares an irreverent, uplifting, and intimate memoir of her extraordinary life journey. Through the many twists and turns of her life—including a tangled relationship with a charlatan-guru, her unexpected connection with the great Christian mystics, and the loss of her daughter—Mirabai finds the courage to remain open and defenseless before the mystery of the divine. “Tragedy and trauma are not guarantees for a transformational spiritual experience,” writes Mirabai Starr, “but they are opportunities. They are invitations to sit in the fire and allow it to transfigure us.”

For most people, the spectre of stroke stirs up images of lingering paralysis, with the potential for a diminishing quality of life, strained relationships, mental depression, before ultimate, untimely death finally takes care of it all. In light of these scenarios, My Stroke Recovery: The Genesis, by Sharon Young, serves as a shining counterpoint to a gloomy attitude towards stroke. Here, we see how a loving, caring, and supportive environment enables one to realize how God sometimes chooses to reveal the many ways by which His blessing may take form. My Stroke Recovery: The Genesis is a definite revelation of faith, unflinching devotion, unquestionable family values, and endearing, delightful innocence in the face of adversity.

Jeshurun. . .a novel set against a backdrop of political intrigue and treason. America's first female president, Jazelle Damon, has placed control of the U.S. armed forces under the United Nations. Her husband, Lucis, former U.S. president and now UN secretary general, demands that Israel relinquish Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians. This could cost the nation of Israel its very existence. John Redden, youngest general in UN history, has been assigned to command the UN forces and remove all Jews from Judea and Samaria. To persuade them to leave peacefully, Redden meets with Rabbi Levy, an influential leader in Judea. The rabbi's daughter, Rachel, agrees to show him the holy sites in hopes of convincing him his mission is wrong. Rachel Levy is unlike any woman Redden has ever known. The wide chasm of religion, ethics and belief systems, however, creates impregnable walls, but he cannot let go of his desire to have her for himself. Redden learns the secretary general may have a personal bias against Israel, and financial kickbacks from the Arab world become visible. Has he been sent to bring stability to the region, or does his employer want to create Auschwitz-type borders around Israel to further the Arabs' goal of annihilating the Jews once and for all? Before the final stages of the attack are set in motion, John Redden is forced to make a decision he never thought possible. Will he be a great general or a great man? He cannot be both. Marlena Ariel Geren was born in Split, Croatia (formerly Yugoslavia). Raised in Berlin, Germany, she attended school there, moved to the U.S. in 1991 and has been an American citizen since 1996. She traveled on location and spent three years doing research for this novel.

At eighteen, Paula is already a seasoned traveler, having begun life in England, crisscrossed the US as a young child, and survived a year in a London boarding school, immersed in her mother’s heritage. But when, at eighteen, she leaves home for Israel to explore her father’s Jewish roots and learn Hebrew on a kibbutz ulpan (a work/study program on a collective farm), her quest will change her life forever. Seduced by her love of language, she continues the journey to France for several years before returning at last to settle to Israel. As she navigates her odyssey from vision to reality, she will learn much more than two new languages—and realize that if she is ever to forge her own identity, she must also separate from her twin sister and follow her own path.

James Beard Award winner of Outstanding Restaurant (2019) James Beard Award winner of Outstanding Chef (2017) James Beard Book of the Year and Best International Cookbook (2016) The James Beard Award–winning chef and co-owner of Philadelphia's Zahav restaurant reinterprets the glorious cuisine of Israel for American home kitchens. Ever since he opened Zahav in 2008, chef Michael Solomonov has been turning heads with his original interpretations of modern Israeli cuisine, attracting notice from the New York Times, Bon Appétit, ("an utter and total revelation"), and Eater ("Zahav defines Israeli cooking in America"). Zahav showcases the melting-pot cooking of Israel, especially the influences of the Middle East, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and Eastern Europe. Solomonov's food includes little dishes called mezze, such as the restaurant's insanely popular fried cauliflower; a hummus so ethereal that it put Zahav on the culinary map; and a pink lentil soup with lamb meatballs that one critic called "Jerusalem in a bowl." It also includes a majestic dome of Persian wedding rice and a whole roasted lamb shoulder with pomegranate and chickpeas that's a celebration in itself. All Solomonov's dishes are brilliantly adapted to local and seasonal ingredients. Zahav tells an authoritative and personal story of how Solomonov embraced the food of his birthplace. With its blend of technique and passion, this book shows readers how to make his food their own.

A New York Times Editors' Choice book The haunting story of a daughter's struggle to confront her father's turbulent-and often violent-legacy After a fourteen-year estrangement, Maria Venegas returns to Mexico from the United States to visit her father, who is living in the old hacienda where both he and she were born. While spending the following summers and holidays together, herding cattle and fixing barbed-wire fences, he begins sharing stories with her, tales of a dramatic life filled with both intense love and brutal violence-from the final conversations he had with his own father, to his extradition from the United States for murder, to his mother's pride after he shot a man for the first time at the age of twelve. Written in spare, gripping prose, Bulletproof Vest is Venegas's reckoning with her father's difficult legacy. Moving between Mexico and New York, between past and present, Venegas traces her own life and her father's as, over time, a new closeness and understanding develops between them. Bulletproof Vest opens with a harrowing ambush on Venegas's father while he's driving near his home in Mexico. He survives the assault-but years later the federales will find him dead near the very same curve, and his daughter will be left with not only the stories she inherited from him but also a better understanding of the violent undercurrent that shaped her father's life as well as her own.

Twenty-something Aviva moved to Cairo shortly after graduating from college with a degree in elementary education. She became a teacher not because she cared passionately about educating the young, but for the traveling opportunities the career provided. Aviva's best friend, Aisha, has visited her mother's family in Cairo on several occasions. When she's twenty-four, she decides to move to Egypt to live with them for a year or two. But there are problems from the beginning. When Aviva's roommate abandons her, the two friends become roommates, setting them up for some unforgettable exploits. Aviva and Aisha's worldly adventures range from hilarious to traumatic, taking them from Egypt to its neighbors and even farther east. Together, they suffer from culture shock that is worse the second year than the first. It comes from realizing that they've been desensitized to things that once stunned or saddened them-and causes them to question their own sanity. They get into and out of trouble, both at work and on vacation; learn new languages; and make friends and enemies along the way. One important lesson is reiterated everywhere they go-if they don't try to apply American logic, everything makes more sense! Instigating Profligacy: Aviva and Aisha's Adventures in the World is based on author E. G. Barbuto's experiences living, working, and vacationing in the Middle East and Asia.

It was the first (and last) season of professional baseball in Israel. Aaron Pribble, twenty-seven, had been out of Minor League Baseball for three years while he pursued a career in education when, at his coach’s suggestion, he tried out for the newly formed Israel Baseball League (IBL). Of Jewish descent (not a requirement, but definitely a plus) and former pro, Pribble was the ideal candidate for the upstart league. In many ways the league resembled the ultimate baseball fantasy camp with its unforgettable cast of characters: the DJ/street artist third baseman from the Bronx, the wildman catcher from Australia, the journeymen Dominicans who were much older than they claimed to be, and, of course, seventy-one-year-old Sandy Koufax, drafted in a symbolic gesture as the last player. After falling in love with a beautiful Yemenite Jew, enduring an alleged terrorist attack on opening day, witnessing a career-ending brain injury caused by improper field equipment, participating in a strike, and venturing into the West Bank despite being strongly advised against it, Pribble must decide whether to forgo a teaching career in order to become the first player from the IBL to sign a pro contract in the United States. His is a story of coming of age spiritually and athletically in one short season in the throes of romance, Middle Eastern politics, and the dreams of America’s pastime far, far afield from home.
