"Shaland takes you by the hand and delivers a Jewish heart." (HaLapid Magazine)

"This book is a collection of Jewish survival stories and fascinating tales. This is not a conventional travel guide: this book will shine a light on the history of 10 Jewish communities in Europe, Asia, and Africa. Together with the author, you will visit incredible places and meet the Jews of today." (GTA Books)

Two and a half millennia ago, a small party of Jews explored new trading routes for King Solomon, settled in the south of India, and lived there peacefully until today. Similarly, during the ancient Roman period, many Jewish merchants traveled to China over the Silk Route and some made it their permanent home. Also, before the Edict of Expulsion in 1492, Sicily was home to over 50 Jewish communities, possibly numbering 50,000 people.

So, how did the Diaspora bring these wandering Jews to so many places around the globe? And why did Jews live happily in India and China for centuries and not experience antisemitism, while the story of the Jews in Europe went from persecutions and massacres to unspeakable horrors of the Holocaust? Finally, why do we see the rise of antisemitism and violence again in the 21st century?

You will find answers to these questions and much more in the current edition of Irene Shaland's artfully illustrated book The Dao of Being Jewish and Other Stories. She collected these fascinating stories while visiting ten countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa and interviewing the locals in their homes, synagogues, and even cemeteries. Now, Irene Shaland's book, replete with her husband's photos, takes you on your own exciting journey of discovery from Austria and the Czech Republic to Scandinavia, from India and China to Sicily and Sardinia, and from East Africa to Stalinist Russia.

This book examines the influence of digital culture and technology on religion and spirituality in the 21st century. It helps us explore the spiritual afterlife in new and highly useful ways. Digital spirituality offers us a way to live on beyond our physical presence on earth, not just as a digital legacy, but in the forms of digital consciousness and digital soul. Digital spirituality also provides us with a way, while we are still alive, to improve and prepare ourselves for the journey beyond. As we use the digital world, and experience its intricate web, it changes what lies inside us. Our spiritual consciousness deepens and broadens, offering us a new experiential bridge to the previously unknown. Just as we work with God in co-creating our lives on earth, we can work with God in cyberspace to co-create our afterlife. The prospects of digital spirituality are at once exhilarating and terrifying. The 19th-century philosopher Soren Kierkegaard reminds us, "Without risk, there is no faith." Our faith is worth the risk, and Digital Spirituality helps us risk a new spiritual understanding to strengthen our faith in the 21st century. Don Iannone, D. Div., Author, Digital Spirituality

"Anne Lamott is my Oprah." -Chicago Tribune

From the bestselling author of Help, Thanks, Wow comes an inspiring guide to restoring hope and joy in our lives.

In Dusk, Night, Dawn, Anne Lamott explores the tough questions that many of us grapple with. How can we recapture the confidence we once had as we stumble through the dark times that seem increasingly bleak? As bad newspiles up--from climate crises to daily assaults on civility--how can we cope? Where, she asks, "do we start to get our world and joy and hope and our faith in life itself back . . . with our sore feet, hearing loss, stiff fingers, poor digestion, stunned minds, broken hearts?"

We begin, Lamott says, by accepting our flaws and embracing our humanity.

Drawing from her own experiences, Lamott shows us the intimate and human ways we can adopt to move through life's dark places and toward the light of hope that still burns ahead for all of us.

As she does in Help, Thanks, Wow and her other bestselling books, Lamott explores the thorny issues of life and faith by breaking them down into manageable, human-sized questions for readers to ponder, in the process showing us how we can amplify life's small moments of joy by staying open to love and connection. As Lamott notes in Dusk, Night, Dawn, "I got Medicare three days before I got hitched, which sounds like something an old person might do, which does not describe adorably ageless me." Marrying for the first time with a grown son and a grandson, Lamott explains that finding happiness with a partner isn't a function of age or beauty but of outlook and perspective.

Full of the honesty, humor, and humanity that have made Lamott beloved by millions of readers, Dusk, Night, Dawn is classic Anne Lamott--thoughtful and comic, warm and wise--and further proof that Lamott truly speaks to the better angels in all of us.

In April of 2017, Maria DeLuca Mckee and her entire family witnessed a miracle first-hand that will forever strengthen their faith, and the belief of everyone around them. An entire community came together for a cause that appeared hopeless until the very end. Maria was in a coma for nearly two weeks and the diagnosis was grim to say the least.

"Anne Lamott is my Oprah." --Chicago Tribune

The New York Times bestseller from the author of Dusk, Night, Dawn, Almost Everything and Bird by Bird, a powerful exploration of mercy and how we can embrace it.

"Mercy is radical kindness," Anne Lamott writes in her enthralling and heartening book, Hallelujah Anyway. It's the permission you give others--and yourself--to forgive a debt, to absolve the unabsolvable, to let go of the judgment and pain that make life so difficult.

In Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy Lamott ventures to explore where to find meaning in life. We should begin, she suggests, by "facing a great big mess, especially the great big mess of ourselves." It's up to each of us to recognize the presence and importance of mercy everywhere--"within us and outside us, all around us"--and to use it to forge a deeper understanding of ourselves and more honest connections with each other. While that can be difficult to do, Lamott argues that it's crucial, as "kindness towards others, beginning with myself, buys us a shot at a warm and generous heart, the greatest prize of all."

Full of Lamott's trademark honesty, humor and forthrightness, Hallelujah Anyway is profound and caring, funny and wise--a hopeful book of hands-on spirituality.
