"When thoroughly engaging and profound Uncle Herschel, a felsher (paramedic) by profession, leaves Russia around the beginning of the century and comes to live in a Jewish community in Brooklyn, he soon discovers that there is more to the business of becoming successful than meets the eye. In America, unlike Russia, he cannot practice medicine without a license. So, to make a living, he sets about opening up a store in which he will sell his own special remedies that do not require a prescription. He is assisted in his efforts by his young nephew, Yankel, with whom he develops a warm and touching relationship, and through whose eyes the story unfolds." . (Inventory #: 14339)
