Publisher's Summary

New love for old souls.

She owns the only restaurant. He’s the wisest man in the village. Together, they make an unlikely and lovable pair. From a National Jewish Book Award-nominated author and Audie Award-nominated narrator.

Weddings and celebrations, stories of Rosh Hashanah, Chanukah, and Passover, and, of course, delicious food. It is time for a new generation of listeners to discover the unorthodox wisdom of Rabbi Kibbitz and the savory sense of Mrs. Chaipul.

Izzy Abrahmson is an undiscovered genius of delightful fiction. Listeners of all backgrounds will be captivated by his lighthearted take on Jewish village life. In interviews, he sometimes says this is his family's history, and sometimes says he made it all up "from whispers and smiles". The characters are so vivid that you'll instantly love them. Each story is a gem, woven into "a novel of stories".

Note: You can listen to this series in any order.
