This Rabbi Draws No Small Audience! 13 janvier 2001
Par Billy J. Hobbs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Harry Kemelman's Rabbi David Small is once again gainfully employed! Following his earlier resignation in "The Day the Rabbi Resigned," Small is now teaching at Windermere College--a good, if not proper for him, academic setting. In "That Day the Rabbi Left Town," it seems, having run out of days of the week (remember, this series started with "Friday the Rabbi Slept Late," Kemelman has been creative with working in other diurnal references in his title. That aside, of course, the series has been a fun read. In this one, the death of an elderly colleague gets Rabbi Small into the heart of the action, as it were. Of course, in his new setting he quickly stumbles into all kinds of academic and campus politics, grudges, and jealousies, to say the least. This episode seems a bit different, however, as Kemelman goes didactic and spends a good third of the book giving us perhaps more background, history, and practices of his religion. Readers may find this a struggle, particularly if they are in a hurry to get into the real case! Once that occurs, however, Kemelman cruises.(Billyjhobbs@tyler.net)

For pilpul and the last of Rabbi David Small, 5 stars! 31 mai 2012
Par Hui Shen ben Israel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
THAT DAY THE RABBI LEFT TOWN (1996) by Harry Kemelman is clearly a sequel to the last Rabbi Small mystery, THE DAY THE RABBI RESIGNED (see my review, but at present it isn't available here). 53-year-old Rabbi David Small, Talmudist and occasional sleuth-by-chance, is preparing to leave Barnard's Crossing, Mass. He will be heading up the newly created Department of Judaic Philosophy at the little nearby college, and is preparing to move to Brookline. This picks up right where Kemelman left off last time.

This time, amidst the stress of whether to just move or commute seasonally, Rabbi Small has to juggle the establishment of his first college class, a new rabbi in B.C., and of course the death of a pain-in-the-rear professor. Kemelman wastes a lot of space here, as he did in the last novel, with the congregation trying to choose a replacement rabbi - I was over it after about 500 words but it went on and on .... They finally pick a studly young jock-type rabbi. He seems like a dim bulb compared to ANY rabbi, but ....

As usual, a lot of the novel is Kemelman's exposé of college professors' everyday-life things and details, which is the kind of writing I also find so interesting in the HARRY POTTER novels. As I said before, Kemelman clearly likes writing about college life. Here he gives the reader an excellent overview of today's professor as contrasted with professors at the beginning of the 20th century - all true and well written. With these excellent details, Kemelman, for once, doesn't kill the freshness of his story.

What I couldn't really fathom was the lengthy backstory of the old professor who is murdered. So he was an old fraud, big deal. It didn't hurt anyone, and even the president was nonchalant about the old professor's total lack of any college education. This is Kemelman's most compelling set of details: the essential fraud that is college education and teaching. I loved it. As usual, the murder is incidental, as is Rabbi Small's involvement. He solves it in approximately 35 words' worth of writing.

This novel, like the last novel, is a bit shorter than most. Kemelman also once again borrows from his own litany of ideas, word for word. That is OK, because they are good words. It does get tiresome, as at certain moments I actually thought I was accidentally reading a Rabbi Small novel I had already read. This novel, unlike Kemelman's canon til now, has a few strange ideas in it. However, one thing I liked was Rabbi Small's brief explanation of Talmudic scholarly hairsplitting, "pilpul", which we are told is Hebrew for "pepper".

I am genuinely saddened that this is the final Rabbi Small mystery. My feeling is Kemelman (who passed away only a few years ago) wanted to continue writing Rabbi Small mysteries-n-Judaica, set at the college since he loves writing about all that. It would have been difficult, and no doubt Kemelman never got around to doing another mystery. So I urge readers to get this one and read it; it stands all by itself, as do most of Kemelman's mysteries. And it is the end of the era of Rabbi David Small.

I wonder what happened to him.

Another book for Rabbi Small fans 16 mars 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
If you are like me and read all of previous Rabbi Small books, you will be happy that there's another one. Though this wasn't as fun as the others, it was still an enjoyable reading.

If you have never read Rabbi Small mystery before, I strongly suggest that you start with his first book. This way you can truly enjoy his books. I got hooked and I had to read every book he wrote

Professor Small is just as good a detective as Rabbi Small 15 janvier 2014
Par Patto - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
In this book Rabbi Small takes up his new career as a professor, teaching Jewish philosophy at Windermere College in Boston. I really enjoyed listening in on the rabbi's classes and watching him field challenging questions from the students.

Eventually the rabbi moves to Boston to be close to work, and Barnard Crossing hires a new rabbi.

A dead body doesn't turn up until deep into the story, and by then we're well acquainted with the dead man and his family and associates. Or we think we are. It takes Rabbi Small to figure out the true nature of relationships in the dead professor's life. It's great fun to see the rabbi brainstorming with the police from Barnard's Crossing and the district attorney. They seem to respect him and appreciate him more than his fickle congregation ever did.

I really enjoy is the focus on domestic details in these mysteries, in this case, the rabbi's distaste for driving, his wife's concern with having kosher dishes in their Boston sublet, the personal lives of the professors at the college, the gossip among the congregation at Barnard's Crossing, the new rabbi's excitement over his snowblower and so forth.

The rabbi’s fans should find this mystery quite pleasurable.

Retirement 24 janvier 2006
Par Mary E. Sibley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Rabbi Small, now in his fifties, is to teach a Judaic course at Windermere College. He is supposed to be available to the history and philosophy departments. He is retiring from serving as rabbi of the temple at Barnard's Crossing. His stay in the position at Barnard's Crossing was of twenty-five years' duration. The temple board, through the Ritual Committee, is to seek a new rabbi.

Miller and Jacobs of the English Department at Windermere College work out together in the college gymnasium. They are characters in the drama. At the hail and farewell brunch for Rabbi Small and his successor, Rabbi Selig, more people speak with Selig than with Small, understandably. The Seligs have dinner with Rabbi Small and his wife, Miriam, a few days later. Professor Miller of Windermere is now a neighbor of the new rabbi. At Kenmore Station Rabbi Small runs into Mordecai Jacobs. At his college office Small meets Sarah McBride, also of the English Department. She intends to audit his course since her husband is Jewish, she explains.

Malcolm Kent, now an old man, fell into teaching at Windermere. He also fell into marriage with Mathilda Clark, the last member of the Clark family, one of the founding families of the school. Malcolm has lied about his credentials. Malcolm decides to give a loan to a former girl friend to help her set up a beauty parlor with her future husband. She is pregnant and plans to marry to the relief of Kent. Malcolm is lonely after his wife dies. He really has no friends at the college.

Rabbi Small is disturbed by noise, such as that of power lawn mowers, and determines that it would help matters for Selig if the Smalls moved to Boston for the winter. A sublet at Coolidge Corner is arranged. The mystery begins as a blizzard blankets the Boston area with snow over the Thanksgiving holiday and many of the characters change their transportation arrangements. The homicide in the story concerns Malcolm Kent. Eventually Rabbi Small suggests a solution, identifying the murderer, showing that one faker had used another.
