Torah Aura Productions publishes books for Jewish schools and families that help celebrate our heritage and our faith.

We have over 25 years of experience as the leading creator of high quality educational materials that enable Jewish children to become empowered Jewish adults.

Our books guide and enhance the Jewish knowledge, spirituality and identity of children and their families, and our innovative tools bring Judaism alive in synagogues, Hebrew schools, and day schools.

Torah Aura Productions was founded in 1981 by a group of innovative Jewish educators who looked out at the field of Jewish education and found materials that were shallow and dull. They started a company to create new tools for families and teachers that would be exciting and meaningful. For more than two decades, Torah Aura has revolutionized the way Jewish schools enable their students to become empowered Jewish adults, and has helped families make Judaism a meaningful presence in their homes.

Some of the areas we publish in:- Torah and Bible- Talmud- Jewish teaching- Jewish parenting- Jewish ethics and values- Jewish holidays- the Jewish lifecycle- Israel- Hebrew- Jewish prayer

Torah Aura Productions: Making success in Jewish education an achievable reality.

I came upon this book by accident and regret having done so. The author's myriad inaccuracies are prudent reason to be wary of his "insights" drawn from flawed memories and inaccuracies (including in what he states as more contemporaneous matters he addressed in regard to his opus).
When sharing recollections as facts presented with clarity, accuracy would be appreciated -- as matters of fact, points of reference, and honoring the people ostensibly quoted and/or referenced. Rabbi Cohon was a remarkable person. (His name was not Cohan; it was/is Cohon.) The author's recollections shared are at times gratuitous and mean -- and do not reflect the teachings of the religious school or the community whose erosion, in general, the author rather self-righteously mourns. I literally "was there" -- and many people whose names are tossed about are people I was blessed to have known well, as my teachers, family friends, and family. They all deserve better than this stream-of-consciousness.
This is basically a parenting book designed for Jewish parents who don't want to be too Jewish, but just want a little Judaism in their life and a way to pass on the spirit of the religion to their offspring. There are some good ideas, and some interesting thoughts, but the overall impression is not one of someone who knows what he is talking about. There's a good reason for that: the author himself is not a parent (or at least wasn't when the book was written), and uses his friends' ideas, many of which contradict each other. It is pretty common for a chapter to include advice like this: "You could try doing this...But if that doesn't work you should try doing it the opposite way and seeing if that works."

For a self-published parenting book written by someone who isn't a parent the book is well-done.
This book is an excellent attempt to get people to return to Judiasm. Has many excellent step-by-step ideas. The book is well written&includes alot of interesting stories. Follow this book& you will find Judiasm VERY meaningful as do I.
