New Releases from ArtScroll

Here at ArtScroll we have a whole bunch of new titles that have recently been released, or are coming in shortly. Here’s a sampling of some of our newest titles:

New from ArtScroll

 

Rav Chaim Kanievsky Haggadah: Though obviously we cannot attend his Seder, we can share Rav Chaim’s thoughts and wisdom on the Haggadah and discover some of the practices he follows. In a sense, we can participate in Rav Chaim’s seder – as we avidly read through the Rav Chaim Kanievsky Haggadah.

Touched by Their Faith: In this remarkable collection, Rabbi Spero focuses on faith, the belief in Hashem and His Torah that has accompanied the Jewish People on our unbelievable journey through time – and also the belief in each other, and in ourselves, that is so necessary today.

Upwards: This is the story of a woman who, with pure emunah and bitachon, accepts her fate even as she struggles against it. She rebuilds her life by seeking out the islands of joy in the sea of her suffering and living on those islands to the fullest. And she feels blessed.

The Protocols: is a riveting combination of fact and fiction that will keep you at the edge of your seat from the first page to the last. It’s also a heartwarming tale about remaining staunch in the face of adversity and appreciating the mysterious workings of Divine Providence.

My Father, My Mother and Me: Do we know how the Torah expects us, grownup children, to treat our parents? What about stepparents or in-laws? This book is a must-read book for everyone. Because everyone is someone’s child

Kol Dodi on Haftaros: In this masterpiece, the Rosh Yeshivah introduces each Haftarah, explains its historical context where necessary, shows its relationship to the Parashah, and offers an enlightening commentary in his own unique, original manner.

We’re planning our next giveaway here on The Official ArtScroll blog – which of these titles would you like us to give away next? Comment and let us know!
