Author Essay

Davita’s Harp  is a terrific read by Chiam Potok.  He captures the mood, tensions and conflicts in the lives of  the Jewish community in this country during the terrible times  of McCarthyism and paranoia.  As a Jewish child who was raised  during that period, I found this to be a touching affirmation of all that we felt.
