In his hugely popular series, bestselling author Harry
Kemelman creates well-crafted mysteries filled with slice-of-life characters
and fascinating Hebrew rituals. Saturday
the Rabbi Went Hungry pulls you into the Jewish community at Barnard’s
Crossing, which has just been thrown into disarray over the unexplained death
of one of its members.
As Rabbi Small and his temple congregation solemnly prepare
for Yom Kippur, a non-practicing member is found dead behind the wheel of his
car—in his own garage. The police call the death an accident, and the insurance
company insists that it’s suicide. But Miriam, Rabbi Small’s wife, believes the
mishap could only be cold-blooded murder.
With his congregants splitting over the possible cause, the
young rabbi must discover the truth or forfeit all hope for peace in the
temple. Turning to the Talmud for divine logic, Rabbi Small discovers order in
the midst of the most muddled events.
Veteran narrator George Guidall, personally approved for this unabridged
recording by the author’s estate, provides the perfect voice for the determined
rabbi as he faces the divided Jewish community. Download and start listening now!
