Multicultural Fiction – Children’s

In the fall of 1910, a Jewish family moves from the Lower East Side of New York City to the hamlet of Mountaindale in the Catskills for fresh country air. Papa is too sick to work and food is scarce. On his way to school, twelve-year-old Adam Bieman is hungry and sees the apples in the Friedland orchard. He cannot resist the ripe, red fruit. Soon his troubles begin to multiply.

This engaging American tale, interwoven with historical details about the Catskills, captures the essence of the Jewish High Holidays. It is a charming story for children about family and forgiveness. Although geared for kids, Out of the Apple Orchard will delight all ages.
