A Bing of Bread grew out of an interview that author Maggie Glezer conducted with a rabbi's wife about the symbolism of challah, that bakery staple deeply rooted in Jewish traditions. Captivated by the myriad meanings in every twist of the bread's braid, she spent years doing research and recipe testing. The result is this landmark guide to the amazing variety of Jewish breads found in communities all over the world, from Guatemala to Russia and everywhere in between. In it are more than 60 impeccably tested recipes both old and new, for challah and other Sabbath and holiday loaves and an exploration of the rich symbolism of their hisory, the rituals governing their baking and eating, and the sacred texts and commentaries from which these rituals derive.
There are best-ever recipes for babka and honey cake, bagels, matzot, crackers, and everyday breads such as Jewish-deli rye. It is also loaded with totally unexpected breads that thrill, such as anise, almond, and sesame-studded Moroccan Purim bread; the spiced and leaf-wrapped Ehtiopian bereketei (whole wheat Sabbath bread); and the pitalike nooni honegi of the Bukharan Jews. Oral histories, ancient legends, shtetl folktales, aphorisms, and proverbs delight and inspire, and stories of grandmothers and great-grandmothers that recall life as it once was complete this volume, the most in-depth and wide-ranging one ever published on the subject.
«لا يمكن أن يتم تجديد أو تطوير أو إصلاح في فقهنا الإسلامي، أيًّا كان موضوعه ومجاله، في الاقتصاد أو السياسة أو الإدارة أو الجنايات والعقوبات أو الجهاد أو العلاقات الدولية، إلا بإعمال هذا المبدأ والتركيز عليه؛ وهو فهم النصوص في إطار مقاصدها وأهدافها». في هذا الكتاب المهم يتناول الدكتور يوسف القرضاوي مقاصد الشريعة الإسلامية المتعلقة بالمال، ملقيًا الضوء على قيمة المال ومنزلته من الشريعة، وعلاقة المال بالإيمان والأخلاق، ومقاصد الشريعة فيما يتعلق بإنتاج المال، أو استهلاكه، أو تداوله، أو توسيعه سواء كان مال أفراد أو مال الدولة. يكشف هذا البحث بوضوح عن فلسفة الإسلام وأحكامه وتوجيهاته الأساسية في المال، والتي تمثل العدالة والتكامل والتوازن، وهو ما يليق بشريعة سمحة، شرعها العليم الحكيم الذي يريد بعباده اليسر ولا يريد بهم العسر

The future is not what it used to be. In this volatile era, with the world changing rapidly, people are more curious than ever to know what lies ahead. Will relent consumerism end up destroying our planet? Or can science and technology allow us to innovate our way out of trouble? Perhaps a greater social consciousness and community-based living will take over — or, conversely, the competition for limited resources may result in everyone fighting for themselves. Drawing on these four possible futures, Richard Watson and Oliver Freeman invite us to examine critically the risks and opportunities to come. They discuss the key factors, trends, critical uncertainties, and wildcards that will shape the future, guiding us to a greater awareness of long-term problems and possible solutions — and empowering us not only to adapt to what might happen, but also to shape our future and to generate change. It’s impossible to know for certain what the future holds, but we can remove some of its surprises by engaging in a meaningful debate about the choices we face now. This book shows us how.
