Please join the Sandra Seltzer Silberman HBI Conversations Series when we speak with Rachel Sharona Lewis about her refreshing debut novel, “The Rabbi Who Prayed With Fire.”
Drawing inspiration from Harry Kemelman’s “Rabbi Small” series of the 1960s and 1970s, author Rachel Sharona Lewis brings us fiction’s newest sleuth, the queer young Rabbi Vivian. When the Beth Abraham synagogue is burned down, the thoughtful bold rabbi works both inside and outside of the synagogue community to solve the case, illuminating the contrasting realities of lives across the city and challenging biases along the way.
We encourage you to purchase the book, read in advance and bring your thoughts and questions to discuss with Rachel Sharona Lewis and the HBI community.
