From Friday the Rabbi Slept Late
to Thursday the Rabbi Walked Out
, the best-selling Rabbi David Small series follows the perceptive small town rabbi through every challenging day of the week. Now David Small steps beyond his daily responsibilities to face issues in the congregation and community that threaten to destroy his career. The beloved president of the temple is resigning. A new president is chosen: a prominent businessman who is used to being obeyed. It’s not long before the rabbi’s adherence to tradition clashes with the new president’s requests. Meanwhile, a young man in Rabbi Small’s congregation has been arrested in a fatal hit-and-run accident. Can the rabbi maintain his position in the temple while helping the young man? Much depends on good luck. Narrator George Guidall provides the perfect voice for the thoughtful, careful rabbi. He captures each strand of humor, intellect, and tension that Kemelman weaves so deftly throughout the Rabbi Small mysteries.
