The land of Israel is like no other place in the world. A place God created to be the home of the Jewish people. This land is calling out for the return of its children. After 2000 years the Jewish people are finding their way home. With this connection to the Land of Israel is a dream of being part of a greater reality that what we see in the world today. This manuscript describes a journey my wife and I took moving from Canada to Israel. It was a journey that separated us from many things we understood to be important. A way of life that many people believe is the best and the best place you can live outside of Israel. But the inner calling of Israel drew us to our new home and to an inner peace that we did not have living outside of Israel.

When Chaya Ben Baruch gave birth to her sixth child, a son with Down syndrome, she led her family on a spiritual journey, moving from Alaska to Israel, and adopting more children with special needs, on the way. Whether she’s watching her son with Downs marry her adopted daughter with Downs, or fighting for the rights of all special needs children, life is never dull. Chaya even managed to find time to donate a kidney, leaving everyone to wonder, “What’s next?” There are few people who have Chaya’s combination of character traits: brilliance; bravery; altruism; honesty; and her ability to love, whether it's her own family or other people’s children. It is our aspiration for the reader to appreciate the uniqueness and joy that Chaya and her husband, Yisroel, have experienced as parents of children with Downs, and to open the hearts of people, across the globe. Ghandi wrote: “A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest.” Join Chaya and her family on their enchanting odyssey. The world needs this heart-rending story, more than ever! Ariella Bracha Waldinger’s Review: “Every pregnant woman fears the possibility of birthing a child with special needs, but Chaya Ben Baruch, in her spiritually uplifting book, Chaya’s Angels teaches the reader the true beauty of raising these special souls. Chaya’s book allows the stereotypical belief of Downs babies to crumble: she removes all the negative labels attached to them; depicting their true beauty and inner light. Chaya takes the reader on an epic journey into the personal lives of she and her husband, as they dive into the unchartered waters of raising multiple Down syndrome babies. Gifted with an overflowing love and a passion to meets the needs of these babies, Chaya and her husband love these children unconditionally. They band together, through love and devotion, to give these children exactly what they need to thrive. As a result of reading Chaya’s book, I learned key information and extensive details about the demands of parenting special needs children. I also learned the rich rewards bestowed upon the brave of heart, who dare to embrace this difficult task. Anyone who has an interest in reading an amazing story of inspiration, or is curious about what it takes to raise babies and children with Down syndrome, will benefit from reading Chaya’s Angels. This book is a powerful contribution to children and adults with special needs, giving the reader a deeper understanding of the joys and rewards of life with these remarkable individuals.” Shira Yehudit’s Review: “Chaya’s Angels is an honest, no-holds-barred account of the life of an incredible woman, who has devoted her life to rescuing and caring for special needs children – not in some cold, clinical, institution, but in her home, and in her heart. Chaya makes no bones about sharing the trials and tribulations, the hardships and heartache of caring for and bringing up these special children – and sometimes losing them. But most of all, “Chaya’s Angels” shows us, in a vivid, personal language that speaks from the heart, the joy of having a special needs child in our lives, as part of our family. Chaya lets us feel the pure love that these children radiate to those around them, and helps us to understand that these children really are just that - special. And if this book does nothing more than persuade just one family to think twice about giving away their newborn special needs baby - for that, it was worth writing. But “Chaya’s Angels” is a very powerful, moving book, and I believe it will do much, much more than that…”

An ongoing issue for clergy as well as Christians in general is how to approach New Testament narratives about the crucifixion of Jesus in relation to Jews, Judaism, and the horrific events of the Holocaust. The events of Holy Week pose particular challenges for clergy and congregations. In this book Henry Knight helps us deal with Holy Week texts in light of our post-Holocaust world and provides practical examples of prayers, liturgies, and resource material to help pastors prepare for and lead worship and teach during this important time in the life of a congregation.

Dr. Dell Sanchez began his journey into the lineage of his Latino family when it surfaced from his research of Jewish survivors of the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions of the 15th – 17th Centuries. The more Sanchez dug into historical record, the more he began to suspect his own Sephardic Jewish roots. The DNA of his mother and father served to prove his suspicions. Presented as a personal yet factual narrative, Out from Hiding includes six crucial topics that prove the existence of Sephardic Jewish roots among Latinos: • Historical and genealogical records • DNA evidence corroborating Sephardic Jewish roots among Latinos • Onomastics dealing with the Sephardic origin of surnames • Material evidence found within the Sephardic Latino community • Oral histories disclosing family secrets of thirteen Sephardic Latinos • Sanchez’s professional observations and prognostications of the Sephardic Latinos’ future Based on continued research, it has been estimated that there are tens of thousands of Hispanic/Latinos with Sephardic Jewish ancestry in America. The majority of these are not aware of their hidden Jewish roots, aren’t aware of their hidden backgrounds. Out from Hiding is his journey through history, family genealogy, and personal faith. Perhaps it may be your journey, as well.

Rabbi Mayer and Rachel Abramowitz are beloved fixtures on the Miami scene. They have that special quality: when you meet you immediately respect them and consider them close friends. But they only became fixtures in one place after they journeyed through many. Their unique story begins in Rachel’s Polish shtetl and Mayer’s youth in British-ruled Palestine. The political climate and world events took Mayer to the United States and Rachel to Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. In the often strange but wondrous flow of Jewish life, it was in a camp for displaced Jews in Germany that their very different journeys merged into one. There were other stops geographically, but their journey is really about the life they made. It’s about surviving WW II through fortitude and fortune, and then helping to smuggle Jews out of Europe to Israel. It’s about being the prime force in establishing the Cuban Jewish community in South Florida, and building Jewish institutions in Miami, Israel and throughout the world. It’s about creating a family that continues their legacy. In reading the stories of Rabbi and Rachel Abramowitz, you will travel through Jewish history. As they touched the lives of so many on a personal level, they found themselves on a historical journey. These are their stories. This is our history. The journey continues.

Since the establishment of the State of Israel in May 1948, more than 40,000 Iranian Jews have moved to Israel, with the last big wave arriving after the Iranian Revolution of 1978/79. As the governments of these two states continue to display animosity towards each other, an examination of the Jews of Iran who now live in Israel provides important insights into the nature of the relationship between these two key countries in the Middle East. Alessandra Cecolin combines a historical approach to the patterns of Iranian Jewish emigration to Israel with a political analysis of Iranian-Israeli relations, exploring how the political and diplomatic interactions between the two have shaped the processes of emigration and integration of Iranian Jewry in Israel. In this book she explores how this community is often caught between a Persian cultural identity and Israeli nationality, and draws out the implications this has both for the community in Israel and for the wider region.
