Availability: Ready to download

Rabbi Harvey is Back with Ten Hilarious New Adventures In this follow-up to the popular The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey: A Graphic Novel of Jewish Wisdom and Wit in the Wild West, the Rabbi returns to the streets of Elk Spring, Colorado. Part Wild West sheriff, part old world rabbi, Harvey protects his town and delivers justice, wielding only the weapons of wisdom, wit, and Rabbi Harvey is Back with Ten Hilarious New Adventures In this follow-up to the popular The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey: A Graphic Novel of Jewish Wisdom and Wit in the Wild West, the Rabbi returns to the streets of Elk Spring, Colorado. Part Wild West sheriff, part old world rabbi, Harvey protects his town and delivers justice, wielding only the weapons of wisdom, wit, and a bit of trickery. These adventures combine Jewish and American folklore by creatively retelling comic Jewish folktales and setting them loose on the western frontier of the 1870s. As his fame grows throughout the Rocky Mountains, Rabbi Harvey meets new characters--including the luckless gold miner Abigail--and faces a slew of new challenges. He encounters the return of "Big Milt" and Wolfie Wasserman (the most feared father-and-son outlaw team east of Nevada), and investigates another bold crime by the sweet-faced Bad Bubbe. And, as ever, the Rabbi is the quickest draw in the West--when it comes to pulling out bits of Talmudic insight to fit any occasion, that is. Like any great collection of Jewish folktales, these stories contain layers of humor and timeless wisdom that will entertain, teach and, especially, make you laugh.

    This is the first time I've read a graphic novel and although it may have been geared toward a younger office I truly enjoyed it. I am hoping to read more from this author.

    Rabbi Harvey, rabbin-shérif d'Elk Spring, est réputé pour sa sagesse et son astuce. Tout le Colorado vient le consulter, pour solliciter son arbitrage ou démêler des intrigues. Dans ce deuxième tome, la sagesse de Rabbi Harvey est encore mise à l'épreuve : il trouve un moyen de mettre définitivement hors d'état de nuire les bandits de la ville, il déjoue la ruse d'une mamie peu scrupuleuse, fait un bref passage dans la police, décode des énigmes, ramène les égarés, réconcilie les couples, dénonc Rabbi Harvey, rabbin-shérif d'Elk Spring, est réputé pour sa sagesse et son astuce.

Enfin, il vient en aide à la charmante Abigaïl qui avait de bonnes raisons de se plaindre du vent des Rocheuses. Chaque histoire recèle de véritables pépites sorties du Talmud ou de contes populaires juifs.

    not quite as engaging as the first volume, but still a good read. the combination of Jewish folktales and Westerns, is a brilliant idea. the illustrations are pleasing and are a great way to transmit the folk tradition. the stories, as well as being entertaining, slyly question your own thought process and smarts. recommended for all ages.

    I adore you, Rabbi Harvey. Such bite-sized pieces of Yiddish-style wisdom! So sweet but sobering! I'm officially won over for good. I sort of want to live in your world! When does the next one come out please? I adore you, Rabbi Harvey. Such bite-sized pieces of Yiddish-style wisdom! So sweet but sobering! I'm officially won over for good.

    Significantly better, in my opinion, tan the first one in the series. Each of the episodes could be read separately but do also flow when read in order. A fun way for kids to learn traditional Jewish folktales, set in the old Wild West.

    My uncle is a Hassidic Jew in Denver. I wonder if he knows Rabbi Harvey. These belong on every good Jew's bookshelf, right next to the stories of Chelm. My uncle is a Hassidic Jew in Denver.

    My only regret is that the book wasn't longer. If you want dry humor, wisdom, and clever tales, Rabbi Harvey is No. 1. My only regret is that the book wasn't longer. If you want dry humor, wisdom, and clever tales, Rabbi Harvey is No. 1.

    Simple, cute, wise. Each story is only a few pages. Summary of story origin in Jewish culture in the back.
