[solid copy, minor wear to cloth at spine ends, some browning to top page edges and top edges of covers; jacket mildly soiled, moderate edgewear, slight paper loss at spine ends, a couple of small tears]. Novel about a Russian-Jewish emigre congregation in a small Irish village, and specifically about a young Jewish boy who is very friendly with a local priest, and who falls in love with a Catholic girl. "The struggle in Palestine was a distant echo [until] Herman Grauss comes to Drumcoole to raise funds for the rebirth of Israel in 1947 [and] his overnight visit stirs the tiny Hebrew community of ten men and five women to a fever pitch. The ancient Passover prayer, 'To next year in Jerusalem,' takes on a vibrancy and becomes a living reality. The death of a Drumcoole boy at the hands of terrorists in Palestine touches off a crisis." First novel by this Irish-Jewish writer and barrister.
