Raised by the Church

Growing up in New York City's Catholic Orphanages

Edward Rohs and and Judith Estrine

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Rohs's story showcases both sides of New York City's social welfare system, through his childhood in the system and his work as a social worker for abused and abandoned children.
  • Estrine's prose is outstandingly readable, setting this book apart from other orphans' stories.
  • This book touches on numerous subjects: the Catholic Church, the Order of the Sisters of Mercy and the Society of Mary Brothers; Fordham college basketball; social work and public mental health services in New York City; and others.
  • Rohs is very well connected in the New York Catholic community, as well as in the world of college basketball, nationally. He will market the book vigorously.
