Popular author Harry Kemelman combines baffling crimes, fascinating characters, and rich Jewish tradition to create his bestselling mystery series. In Monday the Rabbi Took Off, an exhausted Rabbi David Small searches for relaxation in Israel, only to find himself in the midst of an explosive international incident. After six years of leading a challenging congregation, Rabbi Small is taking his dream vacation: three months in Jerusalem without any rabbinical duties. He is finally getting the rest he needs—until a new acquaintance is found dead after a bombing. Suddenly the savvy young Rabbi is up against the formidable Israeli intelligence and faceless Arab terrorists with murder on their minds. With Harry Kemelman’s dramatic flair, you will feel as if you are walking the colorful streets of Jerusalem alongside the perceptive Rabbi Small. George Guidall—personally approved for this unabridged recording by the author’s estate—skillfully breathes life into the ordinary people caught in extraordinary situations.

    " This was a fun, informative book. It was written in the early 1970s. I learned a good deal about the operation of a Conservative Jewish Temple. As a former BYU student in Israel I enjoyed the murder mystery that unfolded in Jerusalem. If you like Israel and mysteries I would recommend this book. "
