Brother Can You Raise a Million? Money Flows As Love Grows in Jerusalem
A rabbi, trying to raise money for his yeshiva in Jerusalem, inadvertently helps two Americans from very different walks of life find each other and fall in love. Goes behind-the-scenes of the world of Jewish fund-raising to reveal both its noble and not-so-noble chatacter. Many people will recognize the fierce competition and humorous kowtowing that occurs when fund-raisers from yeshivas in Israel solicit American philanthropists.
Rabbi Shlomo Wexler spent the first 60 years of his life in the United States, until retiring in Israel in 1988. He received his Rabbinical Ordination from Yeshiva University and his M.A. in Sociology from Columbia University in New York. He went on to become the spiritual leader in congregations in New York and California.
Upon his arrival in Israel in 1988, Rabbi Wexler became the registrar of Neve Yerushalayim College. His intimate knowledge of the ins and outs of rabbinic and yeshiva life led him to write this story of love set within the backdrop of the competitive world of Jewish fundraising.
Rabbi Wexler is the author of the biblical novel The Daughters Victorious.
