    Earth Etudes for Elul by: Katy Z. Allen $15.00

    The month of Elul is a time for reflection, a time for t’shuvah, of turning and re-turning to G!d and to our best selves, in preparation for the Days of Awe. It is time for heshbon hanefesh, examining our hearts and souls. Elul is the time for us to begin to make atonement for the things we wish we had or hadn’t done, and to renew ourselves, to do all we can to get ourselves to change. To help you on this journey, you will find in this volume a series of reflections for the month of Elul, divrei Earth—teachings that connect Earth and Torah.  Use this volume to help you expand your own reflections about t’shuvah: read a few etudes a day or even select by theme. Themes include climate change, community and covenant, cycles, nature, gardening, personal behavior, rituals, and turning.

    These reflections, meditations filled with Jewish wisdom, are written by rabbis, hazzans, environmentalists, gardeners, activists, educators, storytellers, poets, scientists and other spiritual leaders, reflecting many points of view and ways of looking at the world and the process of t’shuvah.

    Homeokinetics: The Basics by: Arthur S. Iberall $15.00

    Homeokinetics is the physics of complex systems. These are universes, galaxies, or planetary subsystems, or even social systems. A complex system is one where there is a tremendous amount of internal exchange by the actors.

This book is for scientists in fields such as biology, economics, anthropology, political science, physiology, and experimental psychology. Whether a discipline studies atoms, molecules, cells, people, stars, galaxies, or universes, the same tools can be used to understand them.
