How did the hexagram become the Star of David? How did it come to appear on the flag of modern-day Israel? So many cultures have used the symbol, but when did it start being used as emblem of the Jewish religion?

In this fascinating full-color work, Dr. Robert Norman meticulously explores every aspect of the six-sided figure, its mysterious origins, and its uses by groups as diverse as Masons and Hindus. Most importantly, he shows what the logo has meant to the Jewish people, and how a plain geometric shape became the defining symbol of the Jewish people and the flag of Israel

A Theology of Holiness: Historical, Exegetical, and Philosophical Perspectives | Kodesh Press

This week is Kedoshim - What does "holiness" mean? Check out "A Theology of Holiness"! Here's what people are saying:

"Rabbi Goldstein really gets at the core idea of what holiness means from a religious perspective. Since holiness is so central to what it means to be religious at all, this book has a profound impact on Jewish philosophical thought in general." - Rabbi Ari Enkin

"A Theology of Holiness provides a comprehensive and thorough survey of a vital concept, in a way that brings the fruits and rigor of academia to a broader audience. In a welcome and sadly uncommon manner, it draws from competing disciplines to create a novel and edifying study."- Rabbi Mitchell Rocklin, Jewish Press

"The idea of kedusha is so pervasive in Judaism that I believe many people think they understand what it is and how it works simply by osmosis. What Alec is able to do is bring a rigorous and methodical approach to understanding what is otherwise an amorphous topic." - Rabbi Moshe Isaacson

"most worthy of your attention and study" - Alan Jay Gerber

"A Theology of Holiness is a thinking person’s book, but one that is accessible to all people of all backgrounds who are prepared to do some thinking, and it is an engaging read that I think will stimulate and resonate with many."- Rabbi Johnny Solomon

https://kodeshpress.com/product/a-theology-of-holiness-historical-exegetical-and-philosophical-perspectives

The idea of “holiness” is central to religion, but it is also one of the hardest concepts to define. In Judaism, the word kodesh, the Hebrew word for “holy,” appears hundreds of times throughout Tanakh and the Talmud. It also appears in ancient Near Eastern contexts, throughout rabbinic lite...

The Principal | Kodesh Press

We remember Rabbi Israel Rosenfeld, ztz"l, a survivor of Auschwitz who fled to America after the war and joined the U.S. Army. He settled in Denver to become a beloved teacher and school principal, and during his tenure became one of America's most influential educators. To this day, many people do not realize that they use the material developed by Rabbi Rosenfeld.

Rabbi Rosenfeld passed away weeks before publication of his autobiography, but he found comfort in knowing that his book was being published and that people would read his story. To many, he is still just "The Principal."

The Legends of Rabbah Bar Bar Hannah | Kodesh Press

Kodesh Press in association with Orot is pleased to announce the publication of The Legends of Rabbah Bar Bar Hannah with the Commentary of Rabbi Abraham Isaac Hakohen Kook, translated and fully annotated by Rabbi Bezalel Naor, one of the most distinguished scholars of Rav Kook's writings.

Rabbah bar Bar Hannah has been referred to as the Jewish Sinbad the Sailor. His tall tales, fifteen in all, are recorded in the Babylonian Talmud in Tractate Bava Batra (73a-74a). The particular chapter in which they are situated is named “The Seller of the Ship” (“HaMokher et ha-Sefinah”). Appropriately, these tales of seafarers (nehutei yama) were inserted in that legal discussion, as is the wont of the Talmud to mix Aggadah with Halakhah, thus tempering law with lore and legend.

Rav Kook’s commentary to the Legends first appeared in print in Jerusalem in 1984 in the second volume of his collected essays, Ma’amrei ha-Rayah. In this early work (written at age twenty-five), Rav Kook yet cites sources. Later, when his style of writing switched to “stream of consciousness,” sources were eliminated. For this very reason, the commentary to the Rabbah bar Bar Hannah legends is of extreme importance. Here, Rav Kook divulges the many and varied Kabbalistic sources that informed his view, and it is one of the few places that he openly includes Kabbalistic terminology in his writings.

Search Engine Volume 2 | Kodesh Press

R. Gil Student's "Search Engine" v. 2 reviewed by R. Jack Abramowitz:

“A wise person has eyes in his head” (Koheles 2:14). Any given reader may not necessarily agree with all of Rabbi Student’s conclusions, especially when he may challenge their preconceptions, but he provides more than ample food for thought on each and every topic that he chooses to discuss. His encyclopedic knowledge and the clarity of his presentation facilitate an intelligent and respectful analysis of each subject, no matter how emotionally charged it may be. I would only hope that those who wish to rebut any of his conclusions attempt to do so as calmly, rationally and with as much intellectual honesty.
