50% Off Sale at Kehot Online

This Wednesday night and Thursday day, KehotOnline will be having a 50% sale on most of their books. This is quite a unique opportunity, as Kehot Publications has quite a variety of excellent books on spirituality, Torah, philosophy, kabbala, Chassidus, Halacha, Tradition, etc. I personally suggest checking out Lessons in Tanya or Vedibarta Bam, but browse around the site and see what they have to offer. Why are they having this sale anyway, you ask?

Chabad.org explains:

Tevet 5 is celebrated as a day of rejoicing in the Chabad-Lubavitch community. On this date in 1986, U.S. Federal Court issued a decision in favor of Agudas Chassidei Chabad ("Union of Chabad Chassidim") regarding the ownership of the priceless library of the 6th Rebbe of Chabad-Lubavitch, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn. The ruling was based on the idea that a Rebbe is not a private individual but a communal figure synonymous with the body of Chassidim. The Lubavitcher Rebbe (Rabbi Yoseph Yitzchak's son-in-law and successor) urged that the occasion be marked with time devoted to study from Torah books ("sefarim").

UPDATE: The 50% off sale will be going on from Wednesday January 4 to Monday January 9. More time to browse, more time to shop. Sweet.
