Storyline

Asriel Stroon has done well for himself since arriving in America, but has he lost his purity of soul in the process? On a return visit to his Polish hometown, he makes amends by arranging a marriage between his daughter, Flora, and Shaya, a brilliant young Talmudic scholar whom he brings home with him. This does not sit well with Flora, who hopes to find an American doctor to be her husband. But after she spends time with Shaya and takes a liking to him, she gets an idea: perhaps Shaya could get a secular education and become a doctor! Written by RK

Charming, satisfying immigrant story.
2 November 2001 | by Maurice MizrahiSee all my reviews

This is a low-key, low-tech, extremely satisfying simple story, a story repeated a thousand times in America: When immigrants come, they adopt some of the new ways and reject some of the old ways, much to the chagrin of their parents. Our story here has a Jewish twist, but the Italians, the Irish, the Hispanics and others all have similar stories to tell.
