Culture Shock

When the very heartbeat of life turns unfamiliarly hazy and gray, how does one distinguish between what is right, what is wrong, and what is simply “different”? 

In the seething political cauldron of Eretz Yisrael post-1948, religious individuals struggle against the winds of the time…and culture shocks they are not prepared for. 

Gittel: The daughter of a staunch Yerushalmi family who already suffered the loss of two sons — one to death and the other to patriotism — Gittel searches for acceptance among her peers in a setting where modern customs seem to have penetrated even the most guarded of enclaves. 
Tzachi: Having broken off contact with his family years ago, Tzachi lately finds himself overcome by pangs of homesickness and longing for his old home. Will he forever remain trapped in the shadows of his slain brother? Can he ever return to the Itche of his youth? Is that really what he wants? And if so…will his family agree to take him back into the fold? 
Ezra: Interned in a transit camp in Yemen and then airlifted with his family to Eretz Yisrael during Operation Magic Carpet, Ezra finds himself caught in the storm blowing across the land he has waited so long to call home. In addition to coping with the enormous upheaval his family’s move engenders, Ezra is dismayed to discover a new value system existing in the Jewish homeland. 
Yemima: An unusually bright, sensitive, and perceptive girl, Yemima has endured much suffering in her young life. Will she ever be given the chance to spread her own wings and begin anew in Eretz Yisrael, or does the instability of the times dictate a different reality? 

Beautifully crafted and written by C. Rosenberg, Culture Shock is an exquisite and realistic portrayal of Jewish life in the Holy Land during a most turbulent era in recent history. It is a historical novel you will always cherish.

The Shul Boy

As a young boy in Jersey City in the 1950s, Lipa Wallerstein’s whole world consists of his father’s small synagogue on the bottom floor of their ramshackle house. With no Jewish friends nearby and a family that doesn’t take much interest in him, Lipa finds himself alone more often than not — but always in the company of his fertile imagination… and his one burning ambition: to study from an old set of Mishnayos left by his grandfather, a great tzaddik. But when he opens a volume and peers at the page, he cannot understand a word it says. 

His zeide always taught him: When you learn Torah, you must see the tzaddikim whose words you study standing right before you! And so, Lipa pleads, “Rabbi Ovadiah Bartenura, please come and teach me the Mishnah…” 

It isn’t long before a whole new world opens up for Lipa. It is a world of Torah — and a world of great peril. A world where ravenous hunger rages in Jerusalem…and danger looms over the blue-green waves of the Mediterranean…and an awful calamity takes place in Vienna… 

And then, one lonely summer’s day, Lipa discovers an injured pigeon and returns it to its rooftop nest. Thus ushers in a new chapter in Lipa’s life, with results that shake Heaven and earth. For Lipa has come upon the immense mystery of Little Fleigel, and the repercussions of it couldn’t be more astounding… 

The Shul Boy, told over in classic Gottesman style, is a novel that will touch you, excite you, and enthrall you. As with all of his books, the author weaves truth with fiction, deep-set reality with stunning fantasy, to create a heart-stopping and exquisite novel. Enter the world of Lipa Wallerstein…and allow the adventure to begin…
