One, or occasionally two, chapters are linked to Jewish book titles, with an extra page from the chapter following often included as well. (All this, in accordance with each publisher's approval)
While book beginnings are always used for novels, the story sample is not always the first in the story collection.
Sample chapters and stories presented, mostly, in text format to shorten time waiting for stories and samples to come up.
The Jewish book categories overlap a great deal. For example, the book, Far From a Place Called Home, is middle grade in readability, yet its serious content made us place it among Jewish books for young people in older grades. It is also for this reason, that some books were placed in two categories.
We hope to add one or two books a week.?

An Onion for the Doctor and Other Stories by
Distributed by Feldheim
A collection of stories, many related to growing up frum in America in the first half of the twentieth century. The last story (a full length book in itself) is a Holocaust diary (as told to the author). There are also some stories related to life in Europe and life in the Land of Israel. Some stories are sad, and some don't seem to have an ending. Almost all seem to be autobiographical stories of the author and her family. Some stories? weigh a person down, while others are really heartwarming. The last story in the book - An Onion for the Doctor - is really a book in itself. It is the true story of a child who lived through World War II. It is a story for older children as well as teenagers and adults. Although there is much pain in the story, there is also much that is inspiring.
