Festival of Freedom, the sixth volume in the series MeOtzar HoRav, consists of ten essays on Passover and the Haggadah drawn from the treasure trove left by the late Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, widely known as "the Rav." For Rabbi Soloveitchik, the Passover Seder is not simply a formal ritual or ceremonial catechism. Rather, the Seder night is "endowed with a unique and fascinating quality, exalted in its holiness and shining with a dazzling beauty." It possesses profound experiential and intellectual dimensions, both of them woven into the fabric of halakhic performance. Its central mitzvah, sippur yetzi'at Mitzrayim, recounting the exodus, is extraordinarily multifaceted, entailing study and teaching, storytelling and symbolic performance, thanksgiving and praise.
Although author Betsy Brannon Green was born in Salt Lake City, she has spent most of her life in the South. Her writing and her life have been strongly influenced by the town of Headland, Alabama, and the many generous gracious people who live there. The Duty Series 3-Book Bundle includes: Hazardous Duty — Savannah McLaughlin is running a little late. Those extra few minutes could mean she may never see her daughter again. The only clue Savannah and the police have to six-year-old Caroline's disappearance is a note with a cryptic verse of scripture.
With no signs of progress, Savannah is desperate enough to call the one man she knows can help—the one man who absolutely despises her.If anyone can find Caroline, it's Major Christopher Dane. The Army often calls on him to discreetly extract people from dangerous situations. But can Savannah trust him and the band of misfits Dane surrounds himself with? Or will the betrayal that took place in their dark past exclude any chance of a bright future? Above and Beyond— Now that Savannah has her daughter, Caroline, back after a frightening abduction, life seems calmer. But that serenity comes to an abrupt end when twenty-year-old Rosemary Allen pleads for Savannah’s help after running away from her dangerously controlling father. But her father isn’t just anyone — he’s Mario Ferrante, the criminal mastermind who oversaw Caroline’s kidnapping. Rosemary and her husband had planned to escape from Ferrante’s house together, but the plan was foiled and Rosemary had to escape alone. Now she is begging Savannah to help keep her safe and rescue her husband. She knows it’s risky, but Savannah can’t resist taking on the challenge. And she knows one person who is just crazy enough to take it on with her — Major Christopher Dane. Savannah just hopes he won’t be able to see through her feigned indifference to him and discover her desperate desire to be reunited with him, even if it requires both of them to put their Lives in danger . . . again. Savannah entreats the help of Dane and his team, and after some convincing, they all agree to take the assignment. Will the team’s undercover plots to beat Ferrante at his own game be enough to win against such a cunning criminal? Will Savannah be able to withstand her resurfacing nightmares when Caroline’s safety is in great danger once again? And will she ever have reason to hope that Dane could someday let her into his complicated life? Code of Honor— Savannah McLaughlin has every reason to be afraid of the obsessed man behind the surgical mask. The injuries she has suffered while jumping from a moving car are nothing compared to the anguish she will have to endure at the hands of Mario Ferrante. She knows she must escape from the man who has a seemingly end vendetta against Savannah and Major Christopher Dane. What she doesn’t know is that Major Dane—who has always avoided commitment—has finally declared his feelings for her in a dramatic way by deliberately ransoming himself for her freedom. Now it’s up to Savannah and Dane’s team of expert misfits to rescue Dane.
But success will require more than brute force.
So the team designs an elaborate plan to bring Ferrante to justice and free Dane. But will the recruitment of an unlikely ally doom the most important mission of Savannah’s life? Will a shocking secret keep Savannah from trusting the man she loves? Full of twists and turns, action and romantic tension, Code of Honor will keep you guessing and cheering for Betsy Branno
A counterintuitive approach to fostering greater innovation, collaboration, and engagement Most of us assume our success relies on a network of friends and close contacts.
But innovative thinking requires a steady stream of fresh ideas and new possibilities, which strangers are more likely to introduce. Our survival instincts naturally cause us to look upon strangers with suspicion and distrust, but in The Necessity of Strangers, Alan Gregerman offers the provocative idea that engaging with strangers is an opportunity, not a threat, and that engaging with the right strangers is essential to unlocking our real potential. The Necessity of Strangers reveals how strangers challenge us to think differently about ourselves and the problems we face. Shows how strangers can help us innovate better, get the most out of each other, and achieve genuine collaboration Presents principles for developing a "stranger-centric" mindset to develop new markets and stronger customer relationships, leverage the full potential of partnerships, and become more effective leaders Includes practical guidance and a toolkit for being more open, creating new ideas that matter, finding the right strangers in all walks of life, and tapping the real brilliance in yourself To stay competitive, you and your business need access to more new ideas, insights, and perspectives than ever before.

"Winning a national title... winning it at Kentucky? There's nothing like it. You're always going to be remembered." -- Truman Claytor, member of UK's 1977--1978 NCAA National Championship team Joe B. Hall, Jack "Goose" Givens, Rick Robey, and Kyle Macy -- these names occupy a place of honor in Rupp Arena, home of the "greatest tradition in the history of college basketball." The team and coaches who led the University of Kentucky Wildcats to their 94--88 victory over the Duke Blue Devils in the 1978 national championship game are legendary. Yet the full, behind-the-scenes story of this team's incredible redemptive season has remained untold until now. In Forty Minutes to Glory, Doug Brunk presents an inside account of this celebrated squad and their championship season from summer pick-up games to the net-cutting ceremony in St. Louis. Brunk interviewed every surviving player, coach, and student manager from the 1977--1978 team and he shares unbelievable tales, such as how James Lee's father talked him out of quitting. Brunk also reveals heart-wrenching moments, recounting the time when Jay Shidler traveled 150 miles to visit his seriously ill mother on the eve of the national semifinals game against Arkansas and how Scott Courts coped with his father's death just days before the championship game against Duke. Published to coincide with the fortieth anniversary of the national championship victory, Forty Minutes to Glory invites the Big Blue Nation to relive a special season. Featuring chapters by Jack Givens and Coach Hall, this engaging book is a fitting tribute to one of the most talented and determined teams ever to compete on the hardwood.
