The Debt of Tamar

The Debt of Tamar

Through the bamboo lattices, she could see Tamar sitting atop the jewel-studded saddle of a miniature pony with a young boy. “Let me go to her.” Reyna stood from her place. “What's the rush?” Nurbanu seized her by the wrist.

A USA TODAY Best seller! Bestselling author Nicole Dweck brings to life one of history's greatest yet overlooked stories of love and resilience. In 2002, thirty-two-year-old Selim Osman, the last descendant of Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, flees Istanbul for New York. In a twist of fate he meets Hannah, the daughter of a Holocaust survivor and an artist striving to understand a father she barely knows. Unaware that the connection they share goes back centuries, the two feel an immediate pull to one another. But as their story intertwines with that of their ancestors, the heroic but ultimately tragic decision that bound two families centuries ago ripples into the future, threatening to tear Hannah and Selim apart. From a 16th-century harem to a seaside village in the Holy Land, from Nazi-occupied Paris to modern-day Manhattan, Nicole Dweck's The Debt of Tamar weaves a spellbinding tapestry of love, history, and fate that will enchant readers from the very first page.

WHAT ARE YOU CLOTHED IN? Our story begins in 2 Samuel 13. This is the story of Tamar. She was the beautiful daughter of King David. Tamar was clothed in beauty and grace until she was violated. Afterward all she could see was shame and disgrace. Tamar chose to remain clothed in it. Sadly, we are no different than Tamar. We are clothed with words, labels and false identities. These garments claim to be our identity and value but are they? We are going to look at what Christ has to say about us. It is time to change our wardrobe. There is power in what we are clothed in. Take a walk with us and learn what you can be clothed in. You do not have to remain clothed in your desolation. Melissa Russell is a wife and mother of 3 children. She has one terrific son-in-law. She has been a Women's Ministry leader for 9 years. Her passion is to study and teach the Word of God and the history of our faith. She shares a love of words with her co-writer and dear friend. Her desire is to teach women that they do not have to remain clothed in their desolation. We have a new garment called Enabling GRACE! Jeanine Murrow is a wife to an amazing husband. She is a devoted mom and home school teacher to two wonderful boys. She is a part time ER nurse and a full time friend to the author of this beautiful book. Her passion is to study the Word of God and share it with other women. Jeanine aspires to be a woman of integrity with the Proverbs 31 woman as her role model and Proverbs 31:25 as her life verse.

The Jewel of Tamar

The Jewel of Tamar

While the content of this book is couched in casual style laced with caustic wit, it is fundamentally a serious work . . . not to be taken lightly. A special feature makes this book rather unique.

The work is a critique of religion, in general (and Christianity, in particular), alleging that it is nothing more than a random composite of fanciful tales invented by the priests and, as such, a cultural dysfunction, that the old socialist cliché, "Religion is the opiate of the people," is an astute appraisal of this vestigial relic, and that all devotees are misguided victims, emotional homunculi, seduced by "priestly lies," and so addicted to this "poppy madness" that "deprogramming" is virtually impossible. While the content of this book is couched in casual style laced with caustic wit, it is fundamentally a serious work . . . not to be taken lightly. A special feature makes this book rather unique. It is a collection of reflections, under the generic caption "radical ruminations," of one St. William of the Orphic Cross at Salem Monastery (shades of Søren Kierkegaard's Judge William, but without "the leap of faith"), which I have supposedly discovered, proofed, and arranged in their proper order. This fictional feature, a find of "momentous import," lends a mysterious air to the manuscript, characteristic of the aura of religion itself. There is another feature, a novel turn, one that may not be readily apparent to the reader, but even ally a facsimile of the alleged nature of religion. That is to say, in other words, the manuscript . . . itself an invention . . . is simply the embodiment of its own critique.

The story comes from the Second Book of Samuel and tells of the incestuous passion of Amnon, David's eldest son, for his half-sister, Tamar and the subsequent murder of Amnon by his brother Absolom. Amnon's lust is set in the context of complementary passions of ambition and revenge, reflected in Absolom and Tamar respectively. The play explores King David's conflict between justice and mercy when confronted with these tragic events. It is a work of constantly changing perspectives in which tragedy and comedy, instead of being simply juxtaposed, are blended in a highly original way. Tirso's play is one of the earliest treatments of a theme that has continued to be an inspiration for such modern writers as the novelist Dan Jacobson in The Rape of Tamar and the dramatist Peter Shaffer in Jonadab . Spanish text with facing-page translation, commentary and notes.

A landmark project to collect, translate, and transmit primary material from a momentous period in Jewish culture and civilization, this volume covers what Elisheva Carlebach describes as a period "in which every aspect of Jewish life underwent the most profound changes to have occurred since antiquity." Organized by genre, this extensive yet accessible volume surveys Jewish cultural production and intellectual innovation during these dramatic years, particularly in literature, the visual and performing arts, and intellectual culture. The wide-ranging collection includes a diverse selection of sources created by Jews around the world, translated from a dozen languages. Representing a tumultuous time of changing borders, demographic shifts, and significant Jewish migration, this anthology explores the range of approaches of Jews, from welcoming to resistant, to the intertwining ideals of enlightenment and emancipation, "the very foundation of the Jewish experience in this period."
