Shalom! I'm married with a young child. My wife and I are in a very difficult place financially. We are in desperate need of money to cover every day expenses. We've exhausted nearly every resource available to us and are running out of options. I'm not asking for donation, I'm asking for work. Please, if you have anything that most to be done kindly let me know. I can do anything. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!

Miriam Hoffman, author, scholar, journalist, playwright and survivor presents her new book A Breed Apart: Reflections of a Young Refugee
A Breed Apart: Reflections of a Young Refugee, published by YI Press (a division of Yiddishkayt Initiative, Inc.), is an engaging non-fiction tale of war and survival, seen through the eyes of a young Miriam Hoffman and her father. Hoffman’s personal tale captures the beauty and importance of keeping the Yiddish language and Jewish culture alive during the twentieth-century, despite countless attempts to destroy it.
This intellectual and emotional journey describes Miriam Hoffman’s experience as a young refugee girl growing up in a post-war DP (Displaced Person) refugee camp in Ulm, Germany, after the destruction of World War II.
Hoffman’s son, Avi, is a multi-talented actor, director, comedian, singer and Jewish cultural activist. Together, they will be reading selections from Hoffman’s book. The evening will also include a discussion, Q&A and book signing.
