The Award-winning Village Life Series

*and young too…

Weddings and celebrations, stories of Rosh Hashanah, Chanukah, and Passover, and of course delicious food. It is time for a new generation of readers to discover the unorthodox wisdom of Rabbi Kibbitz and the savory sense of Mrs. Chaipul. 

Izzy Abrahmson is an undiscovered genius of delightful fiction. Readers of all backgrounds will be captivated by his lighthearted take on Jewish village life. In interviews, he sometimes says this is his family's history, and sometimes says he made it all up "from whispers and smiles."  The characters are so vivid that you'll instantly love them. Each chapter story is a gem, woven into "a novel of stories." 

“Village stories that deftly lift a curtain on a world of friendly humor and touching details of Jewish life.” – Kirkus Reviews 

From the Audie Award nominated author of the National Jewish Book Award Finalist, Winter Blessings.
