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…

Six Million and One

Six million tragedies. And one more. 

The tragedy of a life lived in the shadow of pain…the life of a survivor and the lives of the second and third generations. 

In the turmoil and terror that was Holland during World War II, identical twins Chana and Shprintze are torn apart, one destined for life, the other, for annihilation. The quest to memorialize her lost sister becomes an obsession for Chana Eichler, but she is denied the gift of a daughter. All her yearning is now fixed on the third generation, and when her son marries, his wife discovers that the path to her mother-in-law’s heart is blocked by the past. 

Bayla Green, a Dutch Holocaust survivor living in New Jersey, sets out on a journey to uncover what really happened in an Amsterdam convent during the war years. She enlists the help of Jan Bricker, a righteous Dutch gentile, who is swiftly and inexorably drawn into a web of intrigue and deception. 

When Chana returns to Holland for the first time since the war, she finds herself caught up in events beyond her control, and is suddenly forced to confront the secrets of her family’s history. 

Six Million and One will take you on a suspenseful journey, from America to Holland to Eretz Yisrael, from Holocaust survivors determined to unearth the truth, to evil-minded individuals who seek only death and destruction. Who will triumph: the elderly nun desperate to cover her tracks; or the Bricker and Eichler families, dedicated to life and truth? The answer lies behind the door with three locks...
