Kodesh Press was born on June 5, 2013. It’s incredible to think that in eight years, Kodesh Press has grown from a seedling idea to a thriving, vibrant publishing house, ever committed to publishing thoughtful and inspiring Jewish books. There are an innumerable amount of “behind-the-scenes” people – editors, typesetters, graphic designers, printers, social media and internet gurus, and others – who have helped make Kodesh Press one of the most prominent names in Jewish publishing. I am deeply grateful to all the authors Kodesh Press has been privileged to work with, and thankful that they have entrusted us to develop their books from manuscript-form into fully-finished publications.

Most of all, thank you to the loyal readers of Kodesh Press. It is an unbelievable and humbling feeling to know that Kodesh Press has played a part in educating, animating, and inspiring today’s Jewish readers and Jewish leaders.

In the story of Kodesh Press, there are many more chapters still to come! In the next few months, we’ll be releasing details on books about Elul and the Yamim Noraim, modern Jewish philosophy, Hebrew language and etymology, the Torah and literary interpretation, the interplay of psychology and parshanut, and our very first children’s book.

I hope you will continue with us on our amazing journey. And of course, I wish you happy reading!

New Review of THE STAR OF DAVID: A POPULAR HISTORY OF THE MYSTERIOUS HEXAGRAM!

There are several books on the subject of the Star of David, but this one is different. It contains chapters on the star of David as used during the Holocaust, on the flag of the State of Israel, in Jewish supernatural writings, in other religious, groups, etc. This makes this book unique. In addition, the illustrations are voluminous and shed light on the history of the “hexagram.”

Today the Star of David is the universally recognized Jewish symbol, but was that always the case? In this fascinating work that includes dozens of full color photographs, Dr. Norman explores the use of the hexagram through its use in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, as well as in Buddhism and Eastern philosophies. What was it about the hexagram that made it so attractive in multiple faith traditions? He explains that the earliest documented use of the hexagram is in Capernaum in the sixth century, and was displayed prominently in Prague in the thirteenth century, but it did not become the defining symbol of Judaism until the 1930s, when Nazis forced the Jews to wear a yellow hexagram to indicate their Jewishness. The Star took on new meaning at that point, and then when it was adorned on the flag of the State of Israel in 1948, it took its place as one of the great religious symbols.

If you've ever wondered what Judaism has to say about Zionism, Chosenness, Social Justice, Gun Rights, Marijuana, DNA testing, Environmentalism, Tattoos, Witchcraft, Ghosts, Aliens, Alternate Dimensions, Zombies, COVID-19, then this book is for you. Rabbi Jack, as he is affectionately known, has hand-curated the most urgent, eternal, and in some cases bizarre questions he's received.

His answers are thought-provoking and balanced, and often blended with a touch of wit and humor. Most of all, his writings are nuanced and informed by Torah values.

As If We Were There | Kodesh Press

"Rabbi Gidon Rothstein’s book provides a remarkable opportunity for us to harness the days preceding and during Passover for their ultimate intention: to utilize that time, and the various commandments related to the Exodus from Egypt, to improve our observance of the commandments, our spiritual awareness, and our outlook on the world." - Jewish Press
https://kodeshpress.com/product/as-if-we-were-there/

The Passover Seder is probably the most broadly observed Jewish ritual, as the Exodus from Egypt remains at the forefront of the Jewish consciousness. Since the Torah relates many of its teachings to the bondage of Egypt, Jews are encouraged to internalize the oppression in Egypt, the Exodus through...
