    What would you say to our forefather Isaac, if you happened to bump into him in a parking lot, and he asked you: “What’s new?”


    One of Rabbi Riemer’s congregants wants to take his girlfriend away to a hotel for a weekend to see if they click or not and Rabbi Riemer seizes the moment to discuss this counseling problem with Father Isaac. What should he advise the young man to do? The answer he gets from our biblical patriarch is both hilarious and wise.


    Throughout the chapters of this book, Rabbi Riemer relates stories found in the Bible to the world in which we live today, with humor, imagination and wisdom. After reading these entertaining and meaningful accounts you will understand why Rabbi Riemer is known as “the rabbi’s rabbi,” and why people like Elie Wiesel, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and Harold Kushner have praised his writings.
