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.

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.

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

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
