by | Read by Rebecca Dana

Biography & Memoir • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

This book defies convention. The true story of the author's life with a Russian rabbi is at times charming, at times hysterical, and at times tedious. Overall, Dana's story of her relationship with a 30-year-jujitsu-practicing rabbi is a unique adventure that will introduce many listeners to the world of Lubavitch Jews. Dana's writing and delivery are generally entertaining, and clearly she relishes discussing this chapter of her life, before closing the door on it. However, there are times when the material drags and as narrator Dana sounds as though she's lost her focus. Overall, the memoir leaves one feeling that Dana has let us see only a bit of herself and, like the Lubavitch community, keeps many deep feelings private.
