NEW PUBLISHER LAUNCHES BOOK SERIES ON JEWISH ETHICS
"Society has lost its moral compass," says Gil Student, president of the new publishing venture, Yashar Books. "We are convinced that the surest pointer for that compass is Torah scholarship."
Yashar Books is releasing The Jewish Ethics Series: a collection of books focusing on the fundamental concepts and practical applications of classical Jewish Ethics. The first in the series, "Israel Salanter: Religious-Ethical Thinker" by Menahem G. Glenn, is now in print. Other upcoming titles are "Moral Issues of the Marketplace in Jewish Law" by Aaron Levine, "The Pursuit of Justice and Jewish Law: Halakhic Perspectives on the Legal Profession" (Expanded Edition) by Michael J. Broyde and "The Right and the Good: Halakhah and Human Relations" (Revised Edition) by Daniel Z. Feldman.
Yashar Books is a new publisher of Orthodox Jewish books for contemporary readers and thinkers, dedicated to providing open access to the world of classical and contemporary Jewish ideas.
