Character Study-The Abromovich Children

Published October 18, 2015 by rochellewisoff

             Adoration for his children radiated from Evron’s dark eyes. “Who wants to read the first line of tonight’s psalm?”

            Tuli slid off Havah’s lap. He hopped up and down. “I do! I do!”

            Hoisting him onto his lap, Evron held the book for him. “Our little rooster always reads first. He just started Heder and hasn’t learned to read as many words as the rest of us. The first line of the psalm is usually the shortest.”

            After Tuli sounded out three words Zelig read his portion. Ruth and Rukhel read the next two lines together. Their pronunciation of the Hebrew words and understanding amazed Arel. “Your daughters read the Holy Books?”

            Evron, beaming with pride, kissed each of his children before they returned to their places on the floor. “Why not? The Almighty has blessed them with sharp minds. Why shouldn’t they have the same opportunities as their brothers?”

            Soon after Havah comes to live with Evron, Katya and their four children Havah’s skill as a midwife is tested when Katya gives birth to her fifth child.

            Identical twins, Ruth and Rukhel, the eldest of the Abromovich clan, had hoped for a little sister but are delighted with their new brother Velvil. They are bright, happy girls who are prone to finish each other’s sentences.  Shayndel observes, “It’s as if Adoshem gave those girls two bodies and one heart.”

            Zelig is a studious boy who one day would like to become a rabbi. Old for his age, he prefers reading to playing games. His noisy sisters and brothers often test his patience.

            Tuli, an affectionate child who loves to draw and read, is at once Havah’s favorite.

  • I’ve downloaded the book on my Kindle and am looking forward to reading more stories like this one. I won’t get to it right away as I’m in the middle of another book and then comes NaNoWriMo when my reading time is even more limited but I will get to it!


    • Dear Corina,

      I’m pleased to hear that you downloaded my book and hope that you enjoy it. Take your time…just be aware there’s a sequel coming out the end of November or beginning of December. 😉

      Best of luck with NaNoWriMo. I’ve never participated. Maybe next year as I’ve begun in earnest on the third novel in the trilogy chronicling Havah’s story.
