Sam cover gclp Sam cover gclp-1Sunday, June 7th, 7:00pm

The Great Cosmic Lesson Plan is a unique way of looking at life. It presents a perspective that combines spirituality, psychology, humor and music as pieces of the puzzle leading to a happy, peaceful, meaningful life. We are all connected to each other in the great energy source that is God. We become unhappy when things don’t go our way in the material world. This book suggests that happiness will come from a gradual shift to spiritual values. The book presents practical techniques for letting go of anger, fear, guilt, and negative beliefs. Additionally, humor and music are very helpful in aiding the process of letting go.


Dr. Sam Menahem will be here to discuss the new book and to sign copies (that will be available for purchase here at the store).

Book Discussion with the Author: Maya Katz

March 25th, 2015

MayaKatzSunday June 28th at 7pm, Maya Katz will be here to discuss her most recent book: The Visual Culture Of Chabad.

The Visual Culture of Chabad unfolds the history of the rabbinical Schneerson family and the modern Hasidic movement they built. Through the prism of Chabad portraits, architecture, and ceremonial objects, one sees the powerful sway the Schneerson family held over their Eastern European flock, the reemergence of the Chabad movement in America after the Holocaust, and the provocative engagement of public space. The last scion of the Chabad dynasty encouraged an unprecedented public campaign to force God’s hand into ushering in the messianic age. The products of this campaign largely define Judaism in the public sphere.
