So difficult to say farewell to MTA 2020 (talmidim from Australia and South Africa) at the end their year In The Gush. Allow us to get emotional for a moment: MTA 2020 arrived in the Yeshiva in February of 2020. When the Corona Virus hit Israel at the end of February of 2020 - they had only been in the Yeshiva for a month. And yet, they were some of the very first overseas talmidim to return to Eretz Yisrael - some traveling more than 40 hours to get back. In the words of their Rebbe, Rav Pini Cohen, they have been on fire - learning, diligent, inspired and working hard ever since their return. Chasdei Hashem, many are staying In The Gush for another year - MTB! Let us take a moment at this time to recognize and salute their courage and commitment to Talmud Torah.

Kol Yehuda sichot on the parshaWe are pleased to announce the publication of the book 'Kol Yehuda' by Moreinu Harav Yehuda Amital, sichot on the weekly parashot. The book was edited by Rav Yaakov Fischer. "There was a simple and great truth in the things he told us, sobriety and wisdom of life. Things came out of the week's parasha, but they always touched our lives, were relevant and illuminating as a doctrine of life, and had full internal coverage. They were said as if to himself. In deep faith the conversations were said and with sincerity, and they fell lovingly on listening ears and thirsty hearts, arousing our trust and faith."

RABazak Starting Point210

In Starting Point, Rav Amnon Bazak, a leading figure in the contemporary renaissance of Tanakh study, presents hundreds of short studies in the peshat of parashat hashavua. Each parasha has about seven units. These enable a basic understanding of the parasha and serve as a basis for meaningful discussion of the central ideas within each parasha. The book is both an aid to preparing divrei Torah as well as an introduction to the study of peshat in general. Many of these studies have been presented before in different formats. They have been edited and collected here in a new, expanded edition. Kodesh Press is offering this title  now at 20% off, and is offering that discount on all the books in their catalog at the same time! Go to https://kodeshpress.com/ to order with code GUSH2020. The entire transaction and delivery process is being handled by Kodesh Press. Please note that, at this time, the book is available only in North America.
