Friday the Rabbi Slept Late
(The Rabbi Small Mysteries #1)
by Harry Kemelman
7pm Wednesday, April 21st
Please click here to RSVP (appreciated but not required)
Rabbi David Small, the new leader of Barnard's Crossing's Jewish community, can't even enjoy his Sabbath without things getting stirred up in a most unorthodox manner: It seems a young nanny has been found strangled, less than a hundred yards from the Temple's parking lot -- and all the evidence points to the Rabbi. Add to that the not-so-quiet rumblings of his disgruntled congregation, and you might say our inimitable hero needs a miracle from a Higher Source to save him....
This is a book from the 1950s and we are planning to look at it with an eye to how it inspired Rachie Lewis' new book that we read last month.
