By Jerry Marcus

Follow the life of Brooklyn-born Zev Segal in the 1950s as he wrestles with the basic conflicts of man's inhumanity to man, why it occurs, and the legacy of the Holocaust. Laugh, cry, and grow angry as Zev struggles with conflict as he travels from the security and traditions of Orthodox Judaism to the gambling underworld, as the spirits of Jewish history haunt him.


 

Excerpt from ABRAHAM, ISAAC, JACOB & ZEV

It was four degrees outside and the Chicago wind was blowing ferociously. Zev Segal walked as fast as he could swinging his arms from side to side. His hurried manner continued for nearly a mile when suddenly Zev's entire appearance changed. He slowed up almost to a standstill, his arms no longer swinging, his shoulders now bent as an aimless look spread over his face.

Zev found a restaurant, checked the prices, and decided he could afford a cup of coffee. He sat at the counter, keeping his jacket on, trying to retain as much warmth as possible. Several minutes passed and the waitress still had not approached him. Zev rubbed his hands and moved his feet up and down. His body shivered more and more as each second passed. Finally, the waitress came over to him and he said very meekly, only coffee please.

Zev's mind drifted. He pictured himself sitting in his furnished room thinking of all that had happened these past few years. He remembered the screeching trains going to hell itself. The Righteous Ones had asked Zev for his help in seeking out amongst the peoples of the world those responsible for the atrocities performed on the rebbe's family and millions of others. They still awaited Zev's answer and hoped their optimism now was more warranted than the time they sat at God's throne and thought the civilized world would never allow such horrors to happen....
