Notes
Dov Peretz Elkins, recipient of the Jewish Book Award and author of over fifty books will be presenting on his latest, " Four Rabbis at Lunch: Candid Conversations Among American Clergy. Rabbi Elkins is rabbi emeritus at the Jewish Center of Princeton. Elkins describes the book: Many friends have asked me the question: What do rabbis talk about when they know that no laypersons are listening. Oh, that we could be the proverbial fly on the wall and hear what kinds of discussions they have!" Well, friends, what I have don in this volume is to provide an attempt at replicating some of these intimate - no layperson's present - conversations. Is this book fiction or non-fiction? It's fiction, but like a historical novel, it is based on fact.
