The synagogue was a modest brick building a block from Broadway in the middle of that colorful New York neighborhood known 50 years ago as Hells Kitchen. Between prayers on Yom Kippur you could hear a chorus of would-be Ruby Keelers tap-dancing in the rehearsal hall next door.This is the exuberant story of Bernard Birstein—his immigrant travels and travails in America, his ever-increasing family of five children and countless poor relations, and his adventurous rabbinical life.

The narrator is his youngest daughter, Ann, the blond-haired enfant terrible who grew up to write six novels and now this captivating book.A gem of a book. It is written with skill- it is written with love. (Bel Kaufman, author of Up the Down Staircase)Author Biography: Ann Birsteins books include The Sweet Birds of Gorham, Summer Situations, Dickies List, The Rabbi on Forty-Seventh Street and American Children.
