Fish, Faith, and Family by Ruth Schafer Lempert
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Sam Schafer, an immigrant who fled his native land to escape violence, came to America to find a better life, to live the American Dream. He built a successful business and did not retire until he was attacked in his store and viciously blinded. Sam Schafer was my father. His determination to build a new life was admired by all who knew him. He became a familiar sight with his dark glasses and guide stick as he walked jauntily to prayer services on the arm of a friend. What enabled him to endure the terrible act of violence that robbed him of his sight? He not only met the challenges imposed by his blindness, but he lived zestfully, acquired new hobbies, found another career, and did not retire until he was eighty-five. He was without sight, but he gave us a vision of how a family of any configuration can work together to handle tragedy.
