We are proud to announce the release and availability of Abraham Boyarsky's novel "The Chassidic Trauma Unit". The book is now available through the publisher and through major retailers the world over and online.
Sender Pleskin is a self-proclaimed trauma specialist dedicated to serving his Chassidic community and to 'gently' nudging it into modernity.
When a Bubmer Hasid child falls inexplicably into a coma, Sender and his team jump to action. Hunting down leads in his investigation, Sender follows the signs that he interprets to be Divine Providence as they lead them down a circuitous path that will test not only his faith, but all he was and is.
"Through this fast-paced novel, replete with kidnappings, espionage and fugitive war criminals, Abraham Boyarsky captures the Chassidic communities, their lives and their voices."
