The Yiddish matchmaker’s envelope brims with prospective wives for those who seek out her expertise in 1950s America.
This classic short story explores her magic barrel of possibilities for a shy young rabbinical student looking for a bride, so certain in his faith and so uncertain about his future.
The author narrates his memoir of escaping war-torn Eritrea with his family and the long journey from Ethiopian refugee camp to the United States.
His decision to treat all people as angels (even if they were disguised as hard-cased beetles) buoyed his faith and brought him to academic success.
Does your future hinge on chance or can it be changed by your determination?
