Saturday the rabbi went hungry: Rabbi small series, book 2
In his hugely popular series, best-selling 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.

|display_description||Rabbi Small returns in this New York Times-bestselling novel to investigate a mysterious death on the Day of Atonement The day before Yom Kippur, the synagogue sound system is on the blink, the floral arrangements are in disarray, and a member of Rabbi David Small's congregation-in the Massachusetts town of Barnard's Crossing-is terribly concerned with how much a Torah weighs. The rabbi is determined not to let these mundane concerns ruin his day of prayer and contemplation. But the holiest day of the Jewish year is interrupted when a member of the congregation is found dead in his car. Details emerge that suggest the man may have killed himself, but the rabbi's wife suspects murder. Which is it? Rabbi Small kicks into high detective gear to find out. His search for the culprit among the small town's cast of eccentric characters leads to nail-biting suspense in this highly entertaining and engrossing mystery.|
