Tales Out of Shul: The Unorthodox Journal of an Orthodox Rabbi
If there were a hall of fame of America's Orthodox rabbinate, Emanuel Feldman would be a charter member. Long before the word teshuvah became fashionable, he took a moribund congregation in Atlanta, turned it into a vibrant community, and led it for 40 years. In this poignant, delightful, provocative, uproarious, idealistic, uplifting journal, Rabbi Feldman takes us behind the pulpit as no one ever has before. Meet saints and scoundrels, righteous people and sinners, the movers and the meek. Tag along on countless everyday adventures. Taste sweet success and bitter failure. A marvelous book, by a heroic leader, graceful writer, and incisive thinker. Don't miss it! A Shaar Press Publication.
