Upwards: Learning Appreciation

If you’re looking for reading material for Pesach, look no further than Upwards,  by Shami Reinman – the personal account of a woman’s battle with Parkinson’s that will give you a whole new level of appreciate for everything you have in life.

You would think that reading the personal account of a woman in her 50’s struggle with Parkinson’s disease would be down, depressing, sad. You might be right in most cases, but not so with Upwards.

Upwards is the first-person account of Shami Reinman, a vibrant and energetic woman in her 50’s – a bubby, teacher, wife and mother. She’s fun, funny and full of life – just the kind of person everyone wants as a friend. Then the unthinkable happens, and Mrs. Reinman’s world is turned upside down.  As the author takes us through her journey from Diagnosis, to acceptance, to struggling with her own body – the overwhelming feeling is appreciation.

Yes. Appreciation.

When did I last appreciate my ability to wake up in the morning and get dressed – by myself? When was the last time that I stopped and thought about the gift of being able to speak loudly and clearly, and be understood by those around me? How often to I think about the blessing of being able to drive a car, climb a flight of stairs? Did I ever feel appreciation for my ability to chew, swallow and eat? Who really takes the time to appreciate that their body is not their own worst enemy?

Reading about Shami Reinman and her struggles, reading about how she faces her challenges with optimism, it carries through to the reader. In her words:

“I accept whatever Hashem sends me, and I am grateful for every day that I have. I’ll take each day as it comes.”

-Shami Reinman, Upwards (page 276)

ArtScroll’s “French Revolution” continues! The Edmond J. Safra French Edition Talmud

The Schottenstein Edition Talmud Bavli sparked an ongoing revolution in the Jewish world, opening the Talmud’s vast wisdom to hundreds of thousands. The Schottenstein Edition Hebrew Talmud continued bringing ArtScroll’s innovative features to tens of thousands more.

And then, about a decade ago, it was the turn for French speakers to rejoice, as the first volume of the Edmond J. Safra French Edition Talmud was published. In France, Switzerland, Belgium, Israel, and Canada, French speakers could now enjoy the many features of the Schottenstein Edition, beautifully adapted into French by a team of scholars, translators, and editors.

Just released is the 19th volume of the series, Maseches Chagigah, dedicated by Mrs. Safra in memory of her son, daughter-in-law, and grandson. Maseches Sukkah, volume 2, will be released soon after Pesach, and more volumes are in the works.

Can you “parlez-vous francais?” Then you, too, can discover the wisdom of the Talmud.

Introducing: The Schottenstein Edition Mishnah Elucidated

Over the years, here at the ArtScroll office, we have learned a lot about Torah publishing. And a lot about people.

One of the truths we’ve learned is that different people have different needs, backgrounds and abilities. As part of our mission of bringing the eternal words of Torah to the English-speaking public, we realize the importance of providing Torah classics in various formats and levels, so that every individual can achieve the most when learning.  Thus, a quick glance at our catalog will show five different types of Siddurim, available in more than thirty different formats! That’s because we know that people have many needs – and we are determined to be there for everyone.

It is for this reason that we warmly welcome ArtScroll’s newest major project:

The Schottenstein Edition of the Mishnah Elucidated and its inaugural volume, containing mesechtos Taanis, Megillah, Beitzah,  Chagigah, Moed Katan, and Rosh Hashanah.

The Schottenstein Edition of The Mishnah Elucidated will do for the Mishnah what the universally acclaimed Schottenstein Edition of the Talmud does for the Gemara.

The new, elucidated Translation, based on the classic interpretation of Rabbeinu Ovadiah of Bertenoro (“the Rav”), adds words and phrases to make the Mishnah text read smoothly and clearly, without reference to the notes. This is ideal for those looking for a basic approach to the Mishnah – for example, people studying for a yahrtzeit or sheloshim and young people or adults who do not have extensive experience in Mishnah study. The Notes clarify the Mishnah further and draw, where necessary, on the Gemara or other classic Mishnah commentaries.

Just as people can choose which ArtScroll siddur best meets their needs, so too, now there is a choice in Mishnah study. The widely acclaimed 44-volume Mishnah Series with the Yad Avraham commentary, dedicated by Mr. and Mrs. Louis Glick, in memory of their son Avraham Yosef a”h is an encyclopedic, in-depth commentary that presents many explanations, explores nuances and complexities,  and cites a wide variety of works on the Mishnah, enabling students of Mishnah to  delve more deeply and explore a wider range of comments.

With the introduction of the Schottenstein Edition Elucidated Mishnayos and the recently completed Yad Avraham Mishnah Series, the Mishnah — the basis of Torah she’baal peh, the place where the Oral Law begins – is now accessible to everyone.
