Flower of God

A Jewish Family's 3,000 Year Journey from Spice to Medicine

Add To Cart
Flower of God tells the story of the author s paternal ancestral family from the time of the Temple of Solomon to the present: their migration from ancient Israel to Babylon, to Persia, to Anatolia, to Europe and finally to the United States.

Dr. Herbert Ausubel s saga of his family history is a captivating story of the Jewish experience, at once universal and unique. It is Everyman s tale, and the family s struggles are immediately recognized by anyone who knows something of the immigrant s journey, whatever the ethnicity. It is easy to empathize with the characters because Ausubel captures their humanity, and their difficult search for a hard-won life of dignity, purpose and acceptance.

This book is a testament to the unbelievable courage of the Jewish people and the indomitable human spirit. William Faulkner s marvelous Nobel Prize acceptance speech provides the perfect summary of their struggle: We will not merely endure, we will prevail.

About the author:
Dr. Herbert Ausubel comes from a family of writers and scientists and, as a child, lived in a three-generational household that connected the Old World with life in America. He trained as an historian before attending Harvard Medical School. He has had a distinguished career in medicine as a practicing physician, researcher, writer and lecturer. But always there was this second need: to tell the story of the Jewish people. To achieve that goal, he has spent the past thirty-two years meticulously researching and documenting six family lines of his children s ancestors, two of which he traced back 3,000 years to Biblical times.
