Book Review of The Rabbi of 84th Street : The Extraordinary Life of Haskel Besser

The Rabbi of 84th Street : The Extraordinary Life of Haskel Besser
BettySunshine avatar reviewed on + 30 more book reviews


Wonderful reading. Rabbi Besser is a true mensch. He escaped from Poland in 1939. Much of his family was killed in concentration camps. However, his father and mother escaped to Palestine. Eventually Besser moved to New York City. Here he has led an amazing life helping others. He is also responsible for the miniature talmuds devout Jews carry with them. He has friends among the secular and among those one would think would be his enemies. His engaging personality befriends all.
