Publisher's Summary

Popular author Harry Kemelman combines baffling crimes, fascinating characters, and rich Jewish tradition to create his best-selling 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.

Fascinating classic mystery

The Rabbi's sojourn in the Holy Land isn't all milk and honey, how could it be? Quite apart from the intrigue of the crime, it is instructive to look back a few decades (to a time I remember as a teenager) on the world tensions, politics, trouble in the Middle East of those days and compare with today's situation! I went on pilgrimage to the Holy Land a few years ago, so I found particularly interesting to note developments in Jerusalem and elsewhere-some good, some not at all good- and to hear the impressions of other, earlier visitors as expressed by the Smalls, the journalist and his student son, and a couple of Barnard's Crossing's unsubtle businessmen.
The narration is well done, and fortunately the entire series has the same reader, thus maintaining continuity.
