“I can sum up my reading of Flight From Fear, the incredible story of Rabbi Cywiak, so wonderfully written by Jeff Swesky, in one sentence:

“It is the spiritual awakening of persons of all faiths.”

~ Debbie Nelson-Leonardy, St. Augustine, FL


Flight From Fear is an amazing book about an amazing man, Rabbi Samuel Cywiak.

“Each of us has asked ourselves that age old question, ‘Why me?’

“In Flight From Fear, Rabbi Cywiak’s life is saved, as if by miracle, from the Nazi death camp. He continues his life as a scholar and teacher performing his own miracles along the way. Now at age 91, this great man answers the question most asked of him … ‘Why him?’

“Flight From Fear is a must read and, thanks to Jeff Swesky’s story-telling style, a book you will read from cover to cover in one sitting.”

~ Dr. Roger J. Geronimo, St. Augustine, FL –
