About The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey
Rabbi Harvey—part Wild West sheriff, part old world rebbe—is famous throughout the western frontier for his wisdom and kindness. He resolves conflict, offers friendship, teaches Jewish values … and loves a good meal and a game of baseball.
They may not be quite as you remember them, but each of the stories creatively retold in this witty and original collection is based on traditional Jewish folktales and Talmudic wisdom. The refreshing presentation in graphic novel format will uplift, amuse, surprise and delight!
Praise for the Rabbi Harvey series
“Thoroughly brilliant.... A stunning contribution to children’s literature.... Exude[s] the Jewish reverence for knowledge.”
New Republic
“Draw[s] fresh young eyes to classic eastern European storytelling and the best in Jewish wisdom.”
Huffington Post
“Practically dar[es] a film studio to finally make a hero out of this man in a black hat.... A great yarn.”
Brooklyn Paper
“Fun and enlightening.... A treat.... Distill[s] ancient wisdom down to a pure elixir which goes down smoothly ... perfect for a wide range of ages.... Once [you]’ve read one of Rabbi Harvey’s fun adventures, [you]’ll be sure to want another. Rabbi Harvey is a wonderful addition to American folklore, more than able to take his place beside older icons such as Paul Bunyan and Brer Rabbit.”
Graphic Novel Reporter
“Endearing.... Older teens and adults will laugh and learn watching Harvey at work.”
Jewish Book World
“For every kid who ever sneaked a comic book into the synagogue, there is a new hero—Rabbi Harvey, who tamed the Old West with Jewish wisdom and humor. I’m hiding a copy of this book in my tallis bag, hoping my kids will find it!”
Rabbi Edward Feinstein, author of Tough Questions Jews Ask:
A Young Adult’s Guide to Building a Jewish Life
“Harvey’s adventures are so much fun you hardly realize you’re learning anything until it’s too late…. In the tradition of great Jewish humor, self- deprecating one-liners and deadpan delivery abound. Kids of all ages will love Harvey’s sugary wisdom and wit.”
Publishers Weekly
“Regardless of one’s religious or cultural background, Rabbi Harvey has insight to pass on to everyone.”
LibraryJournal.com
“Rabbi Harvey tames the West with wisdom on one hip, humor on the other.”
Stan Mack, author of The Story of the Jews: A 4,000-Year Adventure—
A Graphic History Book
“Sheinkin has a comedian’s flair for the ridiculous (and I mean that in a good way). That, coupled with his whimsical illustrations, makes The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey a hilarious read!”
Arie Kaplan, author of Masters of the Comic Book Universe Revealed!
“With a blend of concise illustrations and snappy banter Steve Sheinkin pioneers Jewish folklore in novel directions. A friendly starter for readers of all ages wishing to explore Judaic parables of logic and wit. A jovial read that left me smiling.”
JT Waldman, author of Megillat Esther
“Imparts so much memorable, useful and enjoyable wisdom. And you gotta love the cartoons that deliver homey Jewish Yiddishkeit in a post-modern format. Move over Aesop’s Fables, make room for Rabbi Harvey’s tales.”
Shulamit Reinharz, PhD, Brandeis University, coauthor of The JGirl’s Guide:
The Young Jewish Woman’s Handbook for Coming of Age
