New Release: Wisdom for Living:  Rav Noach Weinberg Zt”l on the Parashah

The Gross Family Edition

Rav Noach Weinberg, a pioneer in Jewish outreach and the legendary founder and Rosh Yeshiva of Aish HaTorah, was a man whose very essence was love – love for Hashem, His Torah, and His people. Rav Noach’s entire being radiated wisdom and joy, and no wonder: he was profoundly and deeply connected to the Torah, the source of all wisdom and true happiness.

And how he loved to give over that wisdom. His Thursday night Torah lectures were legendary. The newest arrival to Aish HaTorah and seasoned kollel students — everyone wanted to hear what Rav Noach had to say about the weekly parashah, and how we could take Toras Chaim, the Torah’s wisdom for living, into our own lives and challenges.

In Wisdom for Living, Rav Noach speaks to us with all the brilliance, passion, and fervor that he brought to those unforgettable Thursday night sessions. His devoted students, Rabbis Nechemia and Yitzchak Coopersmith, have adapted those lessons for print, scrupulously maintaining Rav Noach’s unique and beloved voice. In every parashah Rav Noach uncovered a piercing insight for our lives. Sometimes he discovered a truth to help us break down our barriers to greatness, other times he shared an unexpected insight into the workings of the cosmos – or our own daily lives. This remarkable book shares some of Rav Noach’s revolutionary approaches to understanding the wisdom of the Torah in today’s world.

Free Download: A Parent’s Prayer – to Recite Today

All parents want the best for their children — that they should be good and upright, that they have everything they need for a fruitful, joyous life.

The classic work, Shelah HaKadosh, contains a prayer that parents should recite for their children at any time of the year — but especially before Rosh Chodesh Sivan, for that is the month when G-d gave us the Torah, and when the Jewish people began to be called His Children.

meat | passover | gluten-free | freezes well | yields 8-10 servings

1 beef brisket (4-5 lb /1.8-2.3 kg)

2 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 Tbsp onion powder

1 Tbsp garlic powder

2 Tbsp olive oil

3 large onions, thinly sliced

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1 can (6 oz/170 g) tomato paste

2 Tbsp honey

3 bay leaves

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

3/4 cup dry red wine or water

  1. Coat a large roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add brisket; sprinkle with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Rub brisket with spices to coat on all sides.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onions for 5 minutes, until softened. Stir in parsley, tomato paste, honey, bay leaves, vinegar, and wine. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool.
  3. Pour sauce over, around, and under the brisket. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight, turning occasionally.
  4. Preheat oven to 325°F. Bake, covered, for 3-3½ hours or until meat is fork-tender. Calculate 45 minutes per pound to determine the cooking time. Discard bay leaves. Let cool.
  5. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Discard hardened fat from gravy. Trim excess fat from brisket. Slice against the grain to desired thickness.
  6. Reheat, covered, in pan gravy at 350°F for 25-30 minutes.

Norene’s Notes:

  • Slow Cooker Method: Season brisket and prepare sauce as above; add to slow cooker insert coated with nonstick cooking spray. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Place insert into slow cooker; cook on on low for 8-10 hours.
  • Ask your butcher to cut a very large brisket (8 lb/3.6 kg) in half. Total cooking time will be the same as for one 4 lb/1.8 kg brisket.
  • Brisket should be cooked “low and slow,” with lots of onions. The internal temperature should not rise above 180°F on a meat thermometer; after it reaches 200°F, the brisket will become dry.
