A biography is a detailed description or account of someone's life and the times, which is or told by a different author. A biography is more than a list of impersonal facts (education, work, relationships, and death), it also portrays the subject's experience of those events. Unlike a profile or curriculum vitae (résumé), a biography presents the subject's story, highlighting various aspects of his or her life, including intimate details of experiences, and may include an analysis of the subject's personality.

Divine Providence - Hashgacha Pratis
Divine providence (Hebrew השגחה פרטית Hashgochoh Protis / Hashgachah Pratit lit. [Divine] supervision of the individual) is discussed throughout Rabbinic literature. These writings maintain that Divine Providence means that G-d is directing (or even recreating) every minute detail of creation. This analysis thus underpins much of Orthodox Judaism's world view, particularly as regards questions of interaction with the natural world. ...

Honor your father and your mother is one of the Ten Commandments, which are widely understood as moral imperatives by Jewish scholars.

Kabbalah (Hebrew: קַבָּלָה, Qabbalah lit. "receiving"; Qabala) is a discipline and school of thought concerned with the mystical aspect of Rabbinic Judaism.
It is a set of esoteric teachings meant to explain the relationship between an eternal and mysterious Creator and the mortal and finite universe (His creation). While it is heavily used by some denominations, it is not a denomination in and of itself; it is a set of scriptures that exist outside the traditional Jewish Scriptures. Kabbalah seeks to define the nature of the universe and the human being, the nature and purpose of existenc ...
The Machzor (מחזור) is the prayer book used by Jews on the High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Pesach, Shavuot, and Sukkot. The prayer book is a specialized form of the Siddur, which is generally intended for use in weekday and Shabbat services.
The word Machzor means "cycle". It is applied to the festival prayer book because the festivals recur annually.
Here, you will find a nice selection of the Machzor of your choice. From Hebrew-only, to translation (Hebrew, Yiddish, or English) and commentaries. From hard-Cover to leather and antique-leather.
The Mishnah or Mishna (Hebrew: משנה, "repetition", from the verb shanah שנה, or "to study and review", also "secondary" (derived from the adj. שני)) is the first major written redaction of the Jewish oral traditions called the "Oral Torah" and the first major work of Rabbinic Judaism. It was redacted c. 220 CE by Yehudah Hanasi when the persecution of the Jews and the passage of time raised the possibility that the details of the oral traditions dating from Pharisaic times (536 BCE - 70 CE) would be forgotten. It is thus named for being both the one written authority (codex) secondary (only) t ...

Self Help and Mussar
Self-help, or self-improvement, is a self-guided improvement - economically, intellectually, or
emotionally—often with a substantial psychological basis. There are many different self-help movements and each has its own unique focus, techniques,
associated beliefs, proponents and in some cases leaders.

The fictional narrative, the novel's distinct literary prose, specific media requirements (the use of paper and print), a characteristic subject matter that creates both intimacy and a typical epic depth can be seen as features that developed with the Western (and modern) market of fiction. The separation of a field of histories from a field of literary fiction fueled the evolution of these features in the last 400 years.
Talmud - Gemara
The Talmud (Hebrew: תַּלְמוּד) is a central text of Judaism, considered second to the holy written Torah. It takes the form of a record of rabbinic discussions.
The whole Talmud is over 6,200 pages long, written in Aramaic and quotes the Hebrew Bible at least once a page with the Hebrew version in use at the time.
