The PJOW Book Club students are reading “The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey” by Steve Sheinkin. It’s a graphic novel of Jewish wisdom and wit set in the 1870’s Wild West. Rabbi Harvey shares Talmudic wisdom, Jewish folktales, and a lot more through a number of short story adventures.
After reading the first story, “Meet Rabbi Harvey,” the students discussed and listed his characteristics, created their own Rabbi Harvey, and discussed how they thought he solved the problem of the greedy merchant in the story using his wisdom and wit. The story for our next class is “Bad Bubbe!” Happy reading!
