Jewish persecution under Russian Czar! 1899 Russia under the cruel Czarist rule is not a good place to be a Jew!Russia under the diabolical Czarist rule is a very bad place and a very bad time to be a Jew. Fair game to marauding peasants and government militia alike, the random slaughter of entire Jewish families is commonplace rather than a rare occurrence. It is, however, a time for brave men. And brave women.Barefoot, wearing only a flimsy nightgown, sixteen-year-old Havah Cohen alone escapes the brutal massacre by the Czarist tyranny that destroys her home and slaughters her family on a frigid November night in 1899.

Love ignited, lost and found, insurmountable struggles and challenges, Kishinev's Jewish pogroms and all odds against them, Havah and her soul mate, Arel, withstand the storms of life in this unforgettable story of a time and place rarely spoken of, and romance and courage so profound as to be rarely experienced.

  • Bravo Havah!

    Please Say Kaddish For Me by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields was enlightening and totally consuming. I connected with the protagonist, Havah, immediately. I was so concerned for all the characters, I could not put the book down. That is what an extremely talented author does, pulls you through the rabbit hole to another place, another time. I found myself looking up a bit disoriented since her descriptions and dialogue made me feel like I was right there. I am going to get whatever else Fields writes. I saw where the sequel will be out later this year, From Silt and Ashes. I have to have it! Oh, and she did the cover art. Holy smokes! She is fabulous; should have her own exhibit.
