Dear beloved Ben Yehuda Press readers,
We hope you are having a great start to your Elul! In the spirit of repentance, we’d like to apologize for the lack of blog updates in the past two years. As part of our expansion – we now have a social media person! – we are also returning to our blog.
We’ve already been posting a lot of new material on Twitter, but now these will also be converted to blog posts. If you prefer Twitter, don’t worry, your experience there will stay the same! This is an additional service for those who prefer something differently formatted.
For the past few weeks, we’ve been running a series of weekly parsha readings on Twitter – offering carefully handpicked tidbits from books we published, about each weekly portion. (Check out this one on Eikev!) Going forward, these will also be made available here on our website.
We’ll also post our deep dives and author introductions: on Twitter we just started a series focusing on Rabbi Tamares, a provocative thinker of the early 20th century!
Of course you’ll also get our news updates about upcoming books, exciting sales and preorders.
We have one right now: our unorthodox anthology reflecting on the present day, STRANGE FIRE: JEWISH VOICES FROM THE PANDEMIC edited by T.S. Mendola is now available for preorder! Free shipping within the US. You can also add it to your to-read list on Goodreads.
Thank you for reading, and we wish you great High Holy Day preparations!!
