Издательский дом “Книжники” представляет литературно-публицистический альманах “Лехаим” Журнал издается ежемесячно с конца 1991 года. Совокупный тираж номеров за 25 лет превышает 8’000’000 экз. В декабре 1991 года Борух Горин, в то время студент московской ешивы, задумал издавать еврейский журнал. Первый номер вышел на 8 страницах, зато тиражом 30 тысяч экземпляров и распространился сразу по всем общинам бывшего СССР. С тех пор, месяц за месяцем и год за годом, выпуск журнала “Лехаим” ни разу не прекращался. В декабре 2016 года “Лехаим” готовится отметить свое 25-летие. И это единственное русскоязычное еврейское издание, беспрерывно выходившее на протяжении 25 лет на пространстве русскоговорящего еврейства.
Classical Jewish texts serve as the bedrock of Jewish faith and tradition. For many years, the most important books, including Biblical texts and classical commentators, were closed to the Russian reader. With the launch of the «B.E.T.» series, every attempt is being made to bring classical Jewish literature to the fore – from Biblical texts and Midrashic commentary to the Mishnah, Talmud, Maimonides, and other fundamental works of classical Jewish writings and contemporary commentary. An ambitious project with a great many publications currently in translation, we are grateful to the Aminov family, the Rohr Family Foundation, and many others who make these historic translations and publications possible.
Penned by outstanding Yiddish writers such as Sholom Aleichem, I.L. Peretz, Der Nister, Zalman Shneour, Chaim Grade, Isaac B. Singer, his older brother Israel J. Singer and many others, these literary masters vividly and masterfully bring that work back to life. Their works, many that can be compared to outstanding Western literature, serve not only as historical vestiges that palpably recreate and freeze time, but are as relevant today for our understanding of the world – and ourselves – as when they were first published. Initiated in 2012, «Wandering Stars» will continue in its mission of bringing the pearls of Yiddish literature to Russian readers around the world. In addition to a key gift from Igor Rempel and family, we sincerely thank The Rosenblatt Family Trust and Anatoly and Marina Kochyanov for their support of these important efforts.
Given the paucity of well-researched books on Jewish and Israeli history in the Russian language and with an initial major gift by Mr. David Aminov, The Aminov Jewish and Israel History series was launched in 2010. With a three-volume publication on the history of Israel and a two-volume publication on the history of the Jewish history published and widely distributed thus far, the coming years will see the Aminov series encompass a wide variety of publications, depending on the financial possibilities for their publication, promotion and wide distribution. Of note, the three-volume A History of Israel was selected as a winning prize recipient at the recent non-Fiction Book Fair in Moscow.
The Judaica series presents a wide range of publications on Jewish Studies – from an academic edition of the Beginnings of theoretical Kabbalah by Yechiel Bar-Lev to modern translations of the Torah.
There is nothing more important than igniting the minds of our children. With full color illustrations and content themes geared to appeal to a variety of ages and backgrounds, «Keshet: The Michael Miriliashvili Illustrated Books for Children» is intended for individual and family reading and aims to bring Jewish and Israeli history, heroes, and cultural heritage alive for young readers. Inaugurated in 2008, and due to his key support named for Mr. Michael Miriliashvili, the series already includes best-selling children’s titles. Expanding by an average of ten new titles per year (with additional funds in hand, many more titles can be brought to the Russian market), published books are available in large bookstores and via Knizhniki’s online bookstore. Russianspeaking Jewish children – and their parents – deserve no less.
