Jewish U is exactly what every Jewish college student needs.

This best-selling guide to living Jewishly on campus has just been revised and updated.  Scott Aaron helps new college students navigate their first year on campus.


You've applied. You've been accepted. You've packed up. And now,
finally, off to college you go, leaving your high school days behind, saying goodbye to your parents, your siblings, and your friends. But, something you shouldn't leave behind is your Judaism.

Jewish U is a hands-on guide to living Jewishly on campus. How to observe your first high holidays away from home. How to decide if you should join a fraternity or sorority. How to find the right place to eat during Passover. How to talk to non-Jewish roommates about Judaism. How to find common ground with Jewish students from different backgrounds. How to find a Jewish home for yourself on campus. College is about diversity, offering up countless options, choices that YOU will now have to make on your own. Jewish U: A Contemporary Guide for the Jewish College Student is an invaluable resource for those about to be presented with these myriad choices.

Alongside the many contemporary resources that he recommends, Scott Aaron incorporates what the Jewish texts have to say about interacting with others, making decisions, and ethical living.

  • The perfect high school graduation gift
  • Practical, user-friendly text
  • Pertinent suggestions of books to read and web sites to visit
  • Dozens and dozens of other resources as well

Yoga Shalom (Book, DVD, and CD)

Yoga Shalom is a unique worship experience that brings together body, mind, and spirit for an extraordinary prayer service. Combining the two powerful spiritual disciplines of Jewish worship and yoga practice, Yoga Shalom leads to deeper understandings of both, or as author Lisa Levine writes of her initial forays into yoga as a cantorial student, “I learned to be more present in my prayers and meditations so I could better pray with and on behalf of my congregation.”

Duties of the Soul: The Role of Commandments in Liberal Judaism

This outstanding anthology of thirteen essays by esteemed leaders of the Reform rabbinate reexamines the role of mitzvot in liberal Judaism as viewed through philosophical, experiential, and practical contexts. In this groundbreaking collection, Niles E. Goldstein and Peter S. Knobel identify the challenges of living as a Reform Jew in today's rapidly changing world.

Coming from a wide range of experiences and viewpoints, the essayists contend that for Judaism to survive, Reform Jews must find a balance between maintaining a strong presence in the arenas of social action and basic Reform principles and adopting a strong ideology of observance, tradition, and literacy.

  • Includes 13 essays with an introduction by the editors
  • Authoritative works by key leaders of the Reform movement
  • Comprehensive look at today's understanding of mitzvot
