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. This engaging American tale, interwoven with historical details about the Catskills, captures the essence of the Jewish High Holidays. Although written for younger audiences, Out of the Apple Orchard, filled heart and hope, will delight families of all ages.

Inspired by A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, Out of the Apple Orchard contains similar themes, namely hunger, forgiveness and a new beginning.

1 IN 7 AMERICANS DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH TO EAT

That is 48.1 million people including 15.3 million children and 5.4 million seniors Though her book and her partnering with Jewish Family Services, Yvonne David highlights the current dire situation of the hungry, just as Charles Dickens brought attention to the plight of the poor in his day.
