A Dollar's Worth?
Are all Americans rich?
Like many Israelis, Dini, Etty, and friends were under that impression. They were right regarding Chaya Goldman, until suddenly, the situation underwent a sudden change. The story of the Goldman family's aliya from New York to Jerusalem and its painful financial blow, is also the story of how Chaya and her new friends mature in their outlook on life and its values.
Will Chaya bridge the cultural gaps and find her niche in this seventh grade?
Dini, on the social fringe of her class, fails to be socially accepted. Can she burst through the barrier of rejection?
Ricki, full of complaints about life in Israel, is determined to return to finish school in Boro Park. What are her chances of changing her outlook?
Etty, the class 'queen', is embittered, jealous and hostile. Her family's difficult financial situation triggers nasty outbursts, generally against Chaya Goldman. Will this situation remain the same?
This book, serialized in Zarkor Children's Magazine, was followed with great enthusiasm by all ages.
A chapter in life everyone can relate to. Not to be missed!
