Imagine a mountainous buffet of ice cream, cookies, blintzes, cheesecake and pie. Imagine dozens of people sitting around, slamming coffee, cola and energy drinks, enthusiastically debating Jewish law, telling fantastical stories from the Torah and Talmud, breaking into discussions about contemporary issues like Israel and the state of Jews around the world. Imagine yourself there. Interested? Then keep reading. The Ultimate Shavuot guide is an epic collection of spiritual essays, easy to use rituals, and of course, delicious recipes (because what Jewish book DOESN’T have food???) In typical PunkTorah fashion, we wanted Shavuot to be accessible to everyone. Dairy recipes are the custom, but of course, we have plenty of vegan Shavuot recipes as well. Don’t know Hebrew? Don’t worry — the blessings are transliterated. Download your copy. And please, give a donation to PunkTorah to support all of our hard work, including these awesome books.
PunkTorah is psyched to announce the release of Circle Pit the Bimah: Commentaries on the Weekly Torah Portion by Jeremiah Satterfield.
This collection of dvrei Torah (teachings on the weekly Torah portion) is a mosh pit frenzy of gonzo, stream-of-consciousness journalism about God, Jewish identity, Jewish history, life, love and everything in between. If you love Henry Rollins, Hunter S. Thompson and Judaism, you’ll get a kick out of this book. It’s the ideal way to get started in weekly Torah study.
UPDATE: We have edited the download link to download the eBook. You no longer need to enter an email address. Click here to download your copy.
Make sure to give a donation to support all of PunkTorah’s hard work and to keep our eBooks free to the public.
