Also in the third story of Rabbi Small his job in the community is at stake. He has been working as a rabbi for six years now. Since the community leaders change annually, he always has an opposition first, before he sits firmly in the saddle again. This time the offsprings of his opponents are involved in a murder. Rabbi Small quickly realizes that they have nothing to do with it and is trying to get them out of the investigation as quickly as possible. These young Jewish parishioners stand by their Rabbi and the close bond with their mothers they can convince the board members of the community that they have a good rabbi.
This story is again amusingly written and it was a fast reading. ( )

i liked the mystery in this one and comments on social issues like civil rights and drugs. ( )

The silly politics described in the Rabbi Small series may be endemic in some congregations but stereotyping in general irks me making it hard for me to enjoy the plot. ( )

Wasn't expecting to like this - given to me by my mother-in-law - but enjoyed the story. The insights into Jewish religious practice were illuminating for a gentile :) ( )

On Sunday, Rabbi David Small uncovers a Passover plot than undeniably raises more than Four Questions -- threatening to ruin not only his holiday seder but his role as leader of Bernard's Crossing's Jewish community. But there's no time to appeal to a Higher Source when one of his temple board members, a businessman, is rumored to be pushing drugs and all the facts point to a group of teenagers as accessories -- to murder.
