EAST HAMPTON RACHEL is the rabbi's wife

EAST HAMPTON RACHEL is the rabbi's wife. She and Rabbi Sunshine live on the Island's North Shore, where Rachel attends to the duties that are those of most rebbetzin. She mothers her children, marches for peace, writes and keeps track of baseball scores. Rachel Sunshine also knows the emotions that go with having a husband who has been discharged by one of his congregations. So does Sylvia Tennenbaum, another Long Islander, who is the mother of three children, a veteran of the peace movement, a published writer, baseball nut and rabbi's wife.

Book Overview 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.

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.

In between I was writing: Rachel the Rabbi's Wife and Yesterdays Streets got published. Have been taking photographs and thinking of joining a photo book to an autobiography. The latter bombed, the first was a best seller. Wrote a long baseball novel that nobody seemed to want, but I didn't try very hard to sell it. No favourite quotes to show. by Silvia Tennenbaum. There's no description for this book yet. Published 1979 by Bantam Books in Toronto, New York. By (author) Silvia Tennenbaum.

Each of the Tenenbaum children achieved great success at a young age. Chas is a math and business genius, from whom Royal steals money.

While her husband, a rabbi, serves a suburban congregation in Gateshead, Long Island, and encounters a host of typical and unusual situations, Rachel Sonnshein searches for personal fulfillment

It might be useful to think of Rachel, the Rabbi's Wife as resembling Portnoy's Complaint (by Philip Roth), with about a quarter of the neuroticism, most of the whining, and more actual sex, which is described in a style that is nearly as crass. However, unlike Portnoy's Complaint, this book fails to be shocking, interesting, or groundbreaking. It is, as the title suggests, about Rachel, a Rabbi's wife. Rachel is an ineffective dreamer who doesn't fit in with her community, and the Rabbi is an irresponsible, hypocritical, overgrown brat. I hate his character so much that I am forced to acknowledge that he was skillfully drawn-which is why this book has earned one star from me. Other than that, there isn't much of a plot--it's more of a day-by-day account of rebbetzin politics--and too often the author spends pages at a time talking about baseball.
