2. This Is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared: The Days of Awe as a Journey of Transformation
Author: by Alan Lew
There are times in life when we are caught utterly unprepared: a death in the family, the end of a relationship, a health crisis. These are the times when the solid ground we thought we stood on disappears beneath our feet, leaving us reeling and heartbroken, as we stumble back to our faith.
The Days of Awe encompass the weeks preceding Rosh Hashanah up to Yom Kippur, a period in which Jews take part in a series of rituals and prayers that reenact the journey of the soul through the world from birth to death.
This is a period of contemplation and repentance, comparable to Lent and Ramadan. Yet, for Rabbi Alan Lew, the real purpose of this annual passage is for us to experience brokenheartedness and open our heart to God. In This is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared, Lew has marked out a journey of seven distinct stages, one that draws on these rituals to awaken our soul and wholly transform us.
Weaving together Torah readings, Buddhist parables, Jewish fables and stories from his own life, Lew lays bare the meanings of this ancient Jewish passage. He reveals the path from terror to acceptance, confusion to clarity, doubt to belief, and from complacency to awe.
3. The Apocrypha: Including Books from the Ethiopic Bible
Author: by Joseph B. Lumpkin
The number of books in the Bible depends on which Bible is being referenced. Protestant and Catholic churches recognize 27 New Testament books.

In addition to the 73 books of the Catholic Bible, the Orthodox Church adds three more books to their canon. By far, the largest canon of all is found in the Ethiopic Church, whose Bible totals 81 books. This Apocryphal volume contains the books of the Catholic, Orthodox, and Ethiopic Bibles, which include: 1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, 3 Maccabees, 4 Maccabees, Letter (Epistle) of Jeremiah, The Prayer of Azariah, Baruch, Prayer of Manasseh (Manassas), Bel and the Dragon, Wisdom of Sirach, Wisdom of Solomon, Additions to Esther, Tobit, Judith, Susanna, Psalm 151, Enoch, Jubilees, 1 Clements, Shepherd of Hermas.

6. Yiddish: Biography of a Language
Author: by Jeffrey Shandler
Oxford University Press
The most widely spoken Jewish language on the eve of the Holocaust, Yiddish continues to play a significant role in Jewish life today, from Hasidim for whom it is a language of daily life to avant-garde performers, political activists, and LGBTQ writers turning to Yiddish for inspiration.
Yiddish: Biography of a Language presents the story of this centuries-old language, the defining vernacular of Ashkenazi Jews, from its origins to the present. Jeffrey Shandler tells the multifaceted history of Yiddish in the form of a biographical profile, revealing surprising insights through a series of thematic chapters.
He addresses key aspects of Yiddish as the language of a diasporic population, whose speakers have always used more than onelanguage. As the vernacular of a marginalized minority, Yiddish has often been held in low regard compared to other languages, and its legitimacy as a language has been questioned.
But some devoted Yiddish speakers have championed the language as embodying the essence of Jewish culture and adefining feature of a Jewish national identity. Despite predictions of the demise of Yiddish-dating back well before half of its speakers were murdered during the Holocaust-the language leads a vibrant, evolving life to this day.

9. My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew
Author: by Abigail Pogrebin
Fig Tree Books LLC
This book is unique and its author is a marvel.First the book. Classic works of Jewish thought teach that each of the twelve lunar months corresponds to one of the twelve tribes. What do the months and the respective tribes have in common?
The sacred works teach also that the four letters of Hashem’s sacred Name can be rearranged in twelve different ways, and each of these twelve Name Combinations corresponds to one of the twelve months. Another mystery: What is the significance of these twelve different spellings?
What do they tell us about the Creator? And what is the relationship of the month to the spelling?And to the tribes? And to the Heavenly constellations? One mystery after another – and nowhere are they explained in English.Until now.
The Wisdom in the Hebrew Months opens the door to a new dimension of understanding. Drawing upon the full breadth of Talmudic, Midrashic, and Rabbinic literature, this work sheds new light on the months of the year, the tribes of Israel, and the ways that Hashem relates to His people.

13. Lamentations: Faith in a Turbulent World
Author: by Yael Ziegler
Maggid (June 6, 2021)
How do people progress from despair to hope? How does one maintain faith in God’s justice in a world that seems cruel and unfair? What is the nature of Israel’s culpability and to what degree does sinfulness factor in Israel’s calamities?
What is the nation’s relationship to its land, to Jerusalem, and to the outside world? Artfully combining traditional and academic scholarship, Dr. Yael Ziegler weaves together close readings of the book of Lamentations (Eikha) with an integrated reading of each chapter and examinations of larger themes.
To the reader’s surprise, Lamentations emerges as a coherent discourse on the way that people – as individuals and as nations – contend with adversity. Independent essays at the beginning and end of the book, as well as in appendices at the conclusion of the chapters, cover topics such as Eikha’s historical background, poetic techniques, theology, structure, and linguistic and thematic connections to other biblical books, most notably the chapters of consolation in Isaiah.
