As far as the citizens of Maraldia knew, they were the only citizens in the world. None of their many explorers ever came back with tales of advanced cultures or, for that matter, any other culture at all. It was only natural that such a lonely enclave should be preoccupied with discovering the unknown, for even their own beginnings were to them a profound enigma. Never in the history of Maraldia had a citizen been born in the manner common among beasts. Instead, every Maraldian shared a mysterious origin, as each day infant children would be found at sunrise outside the city wall. And so the population of Maraldia was continually refreshed, a city of orphans, looking for their parents. Until, in one tumultuous festival week, claims of ancestry come to them from very different quarters. Which ancestral claim is legitimate, and which is a deception? Each citizen is forced to decide. Come with Keeres and Selah on their courageous journey to discover the truth of Maraldian beginnings! All proceeds from the sale of this book, in any form, are being donated to Living Hope International (LHI). LHI is an orphanage in Zambia, Africa, committed to showing the adoptive love of God to orphans. For more information on Living Hope International visit http: //www.livinghopeinternational.org/.

The Luckiest Orphans

This book, the first history of an orphanage ever published, tells the story of the HOA's development from a nineteenth-century institution into a model twentieth-century child-care facility.

Founded in 1860, the Hebrew Orphan Asylum of New York was the oldest, largest, and best-known Jewish orphanage in the United States until its closing in 1941. This book, the first history of an orphanage ever published, tells the story of the HOA's development from a nineteenth-century institution into a model twentieth-century child-care facility. Because of the humane and benevolent attitude of the New York Jewish community toward its orphans, the harsh authoritarianism and Dickensian conditions typical of contemporary orphanages were gradually replaced there by a nurturing approach that looked after the religious, social, and personal needs of the children. Though primarily an instrument of social control, the HOA was also an expression of Jewish ethnicity. Its history is set in a larger context that includes the life and character of the New York Jewish community, the city's immigrant population, the social and economic conditions of the time, the child-saving efforts of other groups, and the debate over institutional versus foster care. Drawing from HOA archives, published sources, and his personal experience as a resident from 1932 to 1941, Hyman Bogen brings a unique perspective to child-saving efforts in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. His compelling tale portrays daily life for those who lived and worked in such institutions. He illustrates how an enlightened orphanage, rather than crushing the spirit of its young residents, can help children to gain self-esteem and become secure adults. Bogen's tale will be of particular interest to urban and social historians, to city and government officials, and to social workers, as well as to anyone concerned with thegrowing crisis in child-care options.
