    • Artscroll–Your are great. I would like to purchase more of the Talmud Yerushalmi–Hebrew when they are published.

    • That is such a hard question, its like going into a candy store!!
      To name a few: Heaven Prints, Wisdom for Living, Rav Nosson Tzvi, Maggid books, a new Siddur and more!

    • I would like go for books on prophets ! (but ALL books from Artscroll have reached excellence, so the choice would be tough)

  1. Pathways of the Prophets, From the Maggidim of Yesteryear Viol. 2, From Lublin to Shanghai, The Book of Mitzvos…So many Torah books, so little time!

  2. i would like to have a new Talmud , the Stone edition Chumash , and the new book about the Holy Temple. thanks Steve

  3. I own the first volume of Ramban’s commentary, so I would buy more of those. Or some books about marriage or parenting. Or I would try to build up our home library with sefarim. Or the classic Artscroll books that I enjoyed as a child (A Story a Day, Tales of Tzaddikim, Tales from Old Jerusalem, The Best of Olomeinu, etc.) so my kids can enjoy them, too.

    It’s so hard to choose!

  4. I would probably spend a decent part of it on new cookbooks, plus some new sefarim for my husband to be fair 🙂

  5. B”H, Artscroll has so many wonderful sefarim and judaica to choose from, so I know whatever I choose will be beneficial to my growth in getting closer to Hashem!
    Thank You, Artscroll for all you do! 😍

  6. This is like taking a kid to a candy store and telling him to choose something! So many choices!! I’ll have one of everything!!

  7. I have a 27 year old son who is a tzaddik, what he does for our family and his incredible kibud Av v’em…I would give the gift card to him as an inadequate token of my appreciation! (He really deserves much much more!!)

  8. I’m nearing the end of being in seminary for the first time ever and would love to get a few Halacha books to start my life as a Baal teshuva!

  11. I would love to buy cookbooks to try different styles of cooking and baking! And of course my little boy would LOVE more books!!

  14. I’d love to purchase inspirational books like What the Angel Taught You, Heavenprints, and Let There Be Rain. Thanks for beautiful books, Artscroll!

  15. I would love to win Rabbi Berel Wein’s Trilogy on Jewish History. I think it’s an excellent set of books to have around the house. My oldest daughter would probably have them read cover to cover in under a week.

  16. I’d probably get Rabbi Wein’s history books but I’d have to look through the catalog again to make sure. (Any excuse to look through the catalog!)

  17. I look forward to all of your new releases and have put them on my wish list for all my friends and family.

  18. I would love 100$ I’d share it with my husband to buy some beautiful new books to learn together and add to our already so large collection of arts roll best sellers!

  20. If I won the $100 I would love to use that to add to my small but newly growing collections of excellent Artscroll commentaries of Oral Torah (either the next volumes I need of the Schottenstein Talmud, or the next pocket size set of Mishnah — I’d have to decide which seder!), or maybe I would buy one of the new mikraot gedolot volumes or even one of the Artscroll Tanach series volumes. There are so many possibilities, B”H!

  31. I would love to get the travel kosher lamp (which I realize is not a book but it is listed on the artscroll website). I’d also indulge in some of the latest in Jewish fiction – we’ve not had the funds for such luxuries in some time.

    We have the recent children’s Pirkei Avos and just wanted to share that it has enthralled our almost-6yo daughter. She sits so nicely while I read and translate the week’s perek (at her request).

  32. Bli neder I would buy more biographies. Rav Chaim Soloveichick was known to say, reading the ethical behaviour of roshei yeshiva and gedolim of past generations is excellent mussar learning.

  41. I have begun studying Midrash with my rebbe. Every page is a delight of discovery! Thank you Artscroll. One hundred dollars would purchase more volumes of Midrash.

  42. Our school had a flood this past Spring and all my Kindergarten library books were ruined. I would like to buy new chldren’s books with the money

  43. I cannot put into words how excited my husband is to purchase the entire Talmud. He has budgeted and will be able to get all 73 volumes in a 1.5 years. He mentions it literally 3 times a day and tells me how excited he is to get all. Right now the Talmud is all he wants. It’s his Lamborghini and fancy mansion. If we were to win a 100, it would mean so much for him to buy 2 with it!

  51. There are so many on my wish list….I have my eyes on The Pirkei Avos gift edition and The wisdom of the Hebrew Alphabet. I would also like to purchase some more of your wonderful children’s books!!! Thank you!!!

  52. B”H, I’ve been slowly building my library. There is one treasure patiently waiting to be the crown jewel of my collection, for it would further elevate my Shabbos davening as I’ve been blessed to elevate others’, and that’s ISSSLT. It doesn’t get any better than that, wouldn’t you agree?

  53. I’d love a copy of Wisdom for Living & What the Angels Taught you by Rav Noach Weinberg as well as Alive by Mordechai Weinberg. These books give such wonderful insight on the true meaning of living well with Hashem at our side.
