It's 1965 and Abner Hamburger has just completed his rabbinical studies and will soon be a navy chaplain. He loves the navy, opera and most of all his new bride, Judy. her father opposed the marriage, but they're soon far from him and stationed in Japan. The year that follows will change Abner forever, as he and Judy navigate not only a different culture but also marriage, new friendships and the realities of the war in Vietnam, which had seemed so far away. Samurai Rabbi offers a unique, playful and moving look at the life of one young rabbi and the people around him at a pivotal moment in his life and in world history. Join us for a chance to hear more about this novel from Rabbi Goldstein.   
The book will be available for purchase.
