Book Overview This is a thoroughly enjoyable story about a year in the life of Rachel Sonnshein, the wife of a rabbi in the suburbs of Long Island.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable story about a year in the life of Rachel Sonnshein, the wife of a rabbi in the suburbs of Long Island. It's an interesting peak behind the scenes as the rabbi works to renew his contract then becomes involved with the wife of one of his rich congregants. Meanwhile Rachels forms a close bond with her son. This was a warm, witty, intelligent read. Tennenbaum, Silvia. Books for People with Print Disabilities. Internet Archive Books.

In between I was writing: Rachel the Rabbi's Wife and Yesterdays Streets got published. Have been taking photographs and thinking of joining a photo book to an autobiography. The latter bombed, the first was a best seller. Wrote a long baseball novel that nobody seemed to want, but I didn't try very hard to sell it. No favourite quotes to show.

Rachel, the Rabbi's Wife’ is an intolerably antiSemitic book, and it will not have shelf space in any of my stores; Silvia Tennenbaum hates Jews and all things Jewish, especially the rabbinate. It is an insult to American Jews. It will appeal to Nazis and to a handful of selfhating Jews and to antiSemites everywhere who seek justification for their beliefs. I found ‘Rachel, the Rabbi's Wife’ an offensive piece of fiction. In general, I feel the book is highly improbable. The character of the rabbi's wife was despicable

Each of the Tenenbaum children achieved great success at a young age. Chas is a math and business genius, from whom Royal steals money.

No be-wigged handmaiden is this reluctant blue-jeaned rebbetsin, but Rachel's wry distance from her husband Seymour's increasingly conservative congregation somehow seems to balance the rabbi's underlying flak for melodrama and the ""tragic pose"" he occasionally indulges in. Still, Seymour is a good, conscientious leader-perhaps too much so-for while the women mutter about Rachel's laxness in ritual observances and her aloofness, the congregation is also disturbed by Seymour's embarrassing concern with the cause of social justice

Great book
I read this yrs ago....had to read it again....averygoodstory.
It might be useful to think of Rachel, the Rabbi's Wife as resembling Portnoy's Complaint (by Philip Roth), with about a quarter of the neuroticism, most of the whining, and more actual sex, which is described in a style that is nearly as crass. However, unlike Portnoy's Complaint, this book fails to be shocking, interesting, or groundbreaking. It is, as the title suggests, about Rachel, a Rabbi's wife. Rachel is an ineffective dreamer who doesn't fit in with her community, and the Rabbi is an irresponsible, hypocritical, overgrown brat. I hate his character so much that I am forced to acknowledge that he was skillfully drawn-which is why this book has earned one star from me. Other than that, there isn't much of a plot--it's more of a day-by-day account of rebbetzin politics--and too often the author spends pages at a time talking about baseball.
