Description
Every year, just before Rosh Hashanah, the rabbi of Nemirov disappears. The villagers are certain their rabbi flies up to heaven to speak with God—where else would he go before such an important day? But a doubting Litvak scoffs at the idea, in this retelling of I.L. Peretz's Rosh Hashanah story for readers 6 and up from National Jewish Book Award and Sidney Taylor Lifetime Achievement Award winner Eric Kimmel. The Litvak decides to follow the rabbi on his mysterious journey—and what he witnesses convinces him that maybe some people really are worth venerating, and emulating. Jill Weber's sweetly innocent paintings add to the sense of wonder.

"The bright mixed-media pictures in folk-art style show the rabbi's hard work and joyful movements, a powerful, earthy contrast to the magic realism that the shtetl people imagine. Steeped in Yiddish idiom, the story sends an unforgettable message: the skeptic changes and sees that ordinary kindness is enough to save the world. In the end, when the local people proclaim that the holy man flew up to heaven, the Litvak stranger nods and adds in a quiet voice: 'Who knows? / Maybe even higher!'"—Booklist
