In the tradition of The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs and Walking the Bible: A Journey by Land Through the Five Books of Moses by Bruce Feiler comes Abigail Pogrebin’s My Jewish Year, a lively chronicle of the author’s journey into the spiritual heart of Judaism. Although she grew up following some holiday rituals, Pogrebin realized how little she knew about their foundational purpose and contemporary relevance; she wanted to understand what had kept these holidays alive and vibrant, some for thousands of years. Her curiosity led her to embark on an entire year of intensive research, observation, and writing about the milestones on the religious calendar. Whether in search of a roadmap for Jewish life or a challenging probe into the architecture of Jewish tradition, readers will be captivated, educated and inspired by Abigail Pogrebin’s My Jewish Year.

Calendars map time, shaping and delineating our experience of it. While the challenges to tracking Jewish conceptions of time during the Holocaust were substantial, Alan Rosen reveals that many took great risks to mark time within that vast upheaval. Rosen inventories and organizes Jewish calendars according to the wartime settings in which they were produced—from Jewish communities to ghettos and concentration camps. The calendars he considers reorient views of Jewish circumstances during the war and show how Jews were committed to fashioning traditional guides to daily life, even in the most extreme conditions. In a separate chapter, moreover, he elucidates how Holocaust-era diaries sometimes served as surrogate Jewish calendars. All in all, Rosen presents a revised idea of time, continuity, the sacred and the mundane, the ordinary and the extraordinary even when death and destruction were the order of the day. Rosen’s focus on the Jewish calendar—the ultimate symbol of continuity, as weekday follows weekday and Sabbath follows Sabbath—sheds new light on how Jews maintained connections to their way of conceiving time even within the cauldron of the Holocaust.

For many Jewish people in the mid-twentieth century, Zionism was an unquestionable tenet of what it meant to be Jewish. Seventy years later, a growing number of American Jews are instead expressing solidarity with Palestinians, questioning old allegiances to Israel. How did that transformation come about? What does it mean for the future of Judaism? In Days of Awe, Atalia Omer examines this shift through interviews with a new generation of Jewish activists, rigorous data analysis, and fieldwork within a progressive synagogue community. She highlights people politically inspired by social justice campaigns including the Black Lives Matter movement and protests against anti-immigration policies. These activists, she shows, discover that their ethical outrage at US policies extends to Israel's treatment of Palestinians. For these American Jews, the Jewish history of dispossession and diaspora compels a search for solidarity with liberation movements. This shift produces innovations within Jewish tradition, including multi-racial and intersectional conceptions of Jewishness and movements to reclaim prophetic Judaism. Charting the rise of such religious innovation, Omer points toward the possible futures of post-Zionist Judaism.

Do you ever feel like you’re wandering in a wilderness alone? Are you searching for the same freedom the children of Israel sought, only to find oppression at every turn? Are you looking for a life filled with promise, only to be repeatedly disappointed? You are not alone. We are all on a journey, from slavery to sin to the ultimate Promised Land in Heaven, where we will be free. Everything in between is a wilderness experience. Moses expounded on freedom in the wilderness. He explained exactly where to find it and how to get there. He clearly spoke to the Jew and the foreigner. The question is: Does He speak to the Christian as well? In her book Finding Freedom, Dr. Stundahl will wander through the wilderness of Deuteronomy and explore the Hebraic roots of Christianity. Finding Freedom reveals the concepts of the Torah, assembled in the same format in which they were studied by the Jewish communities since the Babylonian exile. These concepts include humility, idolatry, evil speech, teaching, learning, remembering and listening. The analysis of each portion of the Torah considers its applicability to the life of a Christian. As the history of Christianity and the Jewish elements of the Gospel are discovered, the shadows of Jesus Christ are revealed. Wherever you are in the wilderness of your life, you too can find the freedom intended just for you! Experience the reading, the writing, and the dance of the Torah.

The Bible and Hebrew texts tell us: The Bible tells us in Genesis 8:4 that the ark rested “upon the mountains of Ararat.” Hebrew text tells us the ark came to rest on the mountains of “rrt.” There are no vowels in original Hebrew text, so “rrt” translated to Urartu and later to Ararat. Research tells us the area extended from southeastern Turkey across the present border into Iran and north to include most of present day Armenia to the southwest corner of Georgia then southwest to about the present city of Malatya and back southeast and south of Lake Van and southeast Turkey. It covered much of the eastern 1/3 of the present day Turkey. Mount Ararat is within that general area. Additional research that includes the time when Genesis is understood to have been written by Moses (1400-1450 BC) indicates that the Urartu Kingdom may have included the area into what is now Northern Iraq and to Historic Assyria. Additional research using Wikipedia tell us Assyrian sources from early 1300 BC have the Urartu Kingdom in the vast mountainous regions southwest of the Black Sea and Southwest of the Caspian Sea. Mount Ararat is within that general area. If the “mountains of Ararat,” or Urartu has included such a large area or areas over the centuries, then since there has been no verifiable discovery that has been proven to be a large structure of a great age, It can be understood why some researchers are of the opinion that Mount Ararat may not have been in the area of Urartu at the time of the writing of the book of Genesis, or the ark did not land on Mount Ararat, but on another mountain within the vast area. Some other mountains suggested by those who have varied opinions are mentioned in chapter 17. There is also the belief by some that Mount Ararat is a post-flood mountain. This rationale is pursued despite the many reports (more than 40) of an ark sighting on Mount Ararat. A question here given regarding the landing place of the ark may be: Was Mount Ararat in the Urartu Kingdom at the time Genesis was written? (You have read this book; you know my position on the position of Mount Ararat when the ark landed and when Genesis was written). It certainly was in the Urartu Kingdom in the 9th century BC which later succeeded to the Armenians in the 6th century BC, but was Mount Ararat included in the “mountains of Ararat” (Gen. 8:4) when the book of Genesis was written? Moses is understood to have written the book of Genesis. Henrietta C. Mears (chapter 9, foot note 13) says the book of Genesis closes about 300 years before Moses was born. Moses could have only received the information to write the book by a direct revelation from God, or by historical records. If historical records were involved, where did the records come from? She writes: “No doubt it was written long before by Abraham, Noah, or Enoch, who knows?” Dr. Henry Morris agrees (also chapter 9, footnote 14) and ads that oral traditions handed down over the centuries may have been involved here too. God shared the records with Moses in whatever manner he chose to do so. The Word of God is truth. As far as Mt. Ararat being a post-flood mountain as some seem to believe, Dr. John Morris, Dr. Tim LaHaye and other scientists tell us the mountain was pre-flood and grew to its greatest height with all the geological activity that took place during the flood (Chapter 9). Turkish geologist Dr. Bayraktutan has located what are believed to be “basement rocks” that give proof that Mount Ararat was pre-flood (“Who We Are” section). A question may be: What area did the Urartu Kingdom occupy long before Moses arrived on the scene? Wherever the area was I am of the belief that Mount Ararat was included in that area that would be known as the “mountains of Ararat” at the time the ark landed on it. I have personally talked with at least 6 people who have seen, or have personal knowledge of the ark on Ararat. They are the Reverend Vince Will who saw it from an aircraft in WWII, Ed Davis who during WWII was taken to see the ark by Kurds from his base in neighboring Iran, two 2 Kurdish shepherds who told me they saw part of a large structure, Dudley Thomas who held a top secret security clearance and saw satellite photographs and classified information in the “Science and technology Highlights” classified journal when in the navy, and Saim Sahin who was taken to the ark and was able to touch it. Their stories are in chapters 5 and 17, as well as in “Who We Are” and the “Sketches and Photo Sections.” A complete study of the Urartu Kingdom can be seen here: https://www.noahsarksearch.com/Urartu_Ararat_Boundaries.pdf

This is one Bible study you wont want to miss. It shows when the Crucifixion really occurred, and how to confirm that from the Old Testament alone. Fresh insights reveal previously unrecognized parallels between the Crucifixion and modern history that illustrate how the Crucifixion timeline is a key to understanding end times prophecy. Recognizing our place in the procession of last day events will enable those who already know the Lord as their savior to become more efficient in their Christian service. Twelve previously unrecognized patterns illustrate where we are in that schedule of last day events. Even if you disagree with the positions presented, these are issues you need to have answers for.
