I'm looking for something to read in Shul (and at home) over Shabbos. Its got to be Jewish, interesting and preferably about/related to the parsha.
Any ideas?

Rav nebenzahl's sichot always interested me...

I like the Shmuz Parsha Book but it's huge so it's not great for carrying around. Also, each parsha isn't that long.

I'm reading a book called The Anti-Jewish Phenomenon (forget the author) and it's fascinating. Not on the parsha but really interesting.

Do you want to buy a book? Rabbi Chaim Miller wrote a new Chumash which I really like.
"You people are freaks." Milton

"It should be assur to hold onto a pole on the subway, because it might lead to pole dancing." Warren

"Clearly one should wash and say hamotzi on bread before partaking of Peanut M&Ms." Bezalel

"Keep your friends close, your enemies closer, and your country's flag in your pants. Isnt' that how the saying goes?"
Mustache_Marvin

"I think frummies should videotape sex with their wives and send them to the rabbis for a ruling if they are doing anything inappropriate." Indigo
