David Levinsky, a Russian immigrant, moved to America in search of opportunity but is forced to confront many moral and economic challenges along the way. It’s a compelling account of one person’s faith and perseverance following a life-changing decision. After a series of tragedies, David Levinsky decides to leave his native Russia for the United States. Formally educated in the Talmud, he has strong religious beliefs that clash with his new secular lifestyle. He eventually finds work but is interested in starting his own business. Over time, his professional life begins to thrive, while his personal endeavors suffer. With the accumulation of wealth and prestige, comes the unavoidable cost of the American dream. The Rise of David Levinsky details the highs and lows of the immigrant experience. It examines the desire and sacrifice required to build a new life. It’s a cautionary tale that explores the strength and struggles of the nineteenth century Jewish immigrant. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Rise of David Levinsky is both modern and readable.
