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.

    " Junie B is back! I love her antics at Thanksgiving! I read part of Turkeys we have loved during a recent rainy recess. The kids howled with laughter as we learned about Nipsy Doodles and exploding biscuits! The next day the emails started coming from parents. "What is that book with exploding biscuits? I want to get it for my daughter." Junie B's imperfections and bad grammar are part of her charm. She gets children to go home and tell parents what book they want to read. I'll take that vote anyday! "

    " A new Junie B. book! Yay! I literally sat down and read this at work the moment it appeared in the stack of new books needing to be entered into the library system. If you want to find out what first graders really think about pilgrims, and turkeys, and pumpkin pie, get your copy of Turkeys We Have Loved and Eaten while it's still on the shelf! "
