Shoyer, Paula.  The Kosher Baker  Over 160 Dairy-free Recipes from Traditional to Trendy.

The author appeared in person last month (March) to a very positive audience, as part of the Jewish Cultural Council series.  Included in her talk, as well as in her book, Ms. Shoyer presents a section on foolproof techniques for a successful outcome.  The book includes a presentation on utensils for her baking , also a listing of certified kosher pareve (as are all ingredients used) for these recipes. The photo illustrations, in brilliant color, are especially tantalizing.


Steinsalz, Adin.  The Thirteen Petalled Rose   A Discourse on the Essence of Jewish Existence and Belief

The book, translated from the Hebrew by Yehuda Hanebi, is a modern classic in Jewish cabala.  It describes the ten Sefirot or emanations of G-d, and how we might relate to them.  The title “The Thirteen Petalled Rose” is taken from the introduction given in the Zohar, which is a landmark set of volumes in Jewish cabala from the year 1300.  “…Just as a rose has thirteen petals, so does Knesset Yisrael (the Jewish people) have thirteen measures  of compassion encompassing it on all its sides…”  The thirteen measures of compassion concept refers to the attributes of G-d as related to Moses in the book of Exodus.

We are holding two books for the library, a hard cover one and the other a soft cover volume.  The hard cover volume will be held on the Reserve shelf, the other on the general shelf for circulation.  The letter R appears after the library identification number (which is otherwise the same), on the library reserve copy.
