Seforim Sale

The SOY Seforim Sale begins this Sunday night at YU (calendar). Here is a list of some books that you will be able to find there. Note that you can search the catalog and order online here: link:

  • In the Footsteps of the Kuzari vols. 1 & 2 by Prof. Shalom Rosenberg (vol. 1, vol. 2).

    A compelling formulation of a contemporary worldview, with the Kuzari as its starting point.

      Interview with Prof. Rosenberg:

  • A Philosophy of Mitzvot by R. Dr. Gersion Appel (link)

    The most organized and in-depth analysis of Sefer Ha-Chinukh written to date, and by a master of Torah and medieval philosophy.

  • Flipping Out? Myth or Fact: The Impact of the “Year in Israel” by Shalom Z. Berger, Daniel Jacobson and Chaim I. Waxman (link)

    The only book available about this important aspect of our community.

  • Other books from Yashar: link

  • The Seder Night: An Exalted Evening - The Passover Haggadah by R. Joseph B. Soloveitchik, edited by R. Menachem Genack (link)

    I spoke with Bernie Scharfstein and R. Genack, and the book will be available at the Seforim Sale!

  • And From There You Shall Seek - UVikkashtem Misham by R. Joseph B. Soloveitchik (link)

    Quite possibly Rav Soloveitchik's most important work and the English translation is extremely well done.

  • Divine Footsteps: Chesed and the Jewish Soul by R. Daniel Z Feldman

    Aside from being a good friend of mine, the author is simply a force of nature. This book is another masterpiece of lomdus and clarity.
