Bread Givers Bread Givers shows the life of a Jewish family in modernizing America during the early 1900's, but it focuses in on a young girl who's father is a Rabbi that does nothing but teach the Holy Torah all day and does no work to earn money. During this time period it was hard on almost all Jewish families and this family was seeing this now, the inability of getting a decent job, and most of all, the need to find a suitable husband. All of the family works hard except for the father, he is always out preaching the Torah while his daughters earn the only income the family gets. He was a 'religious freak' that did nothing else to help his family through their hardships. And the thing that bothered me, the reader, the most was the fact that the daughters had to do all the work for the family and their father still had total control over them in just about every aspect if not all. The biggest part was controlling who they marry to.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
