- 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.
