by | Read by John Rubinstein, Elisha Wiesel [Intro.]

Poetry & Drama • 46 mins. • Unabridged • © 2020

This audiobook by Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel may not be wonderful poetry, but it is a wonderful story that goes to the core of Jewish moral identity. When the Enemy decrees that the Jewish community must provide 10 people to be hanged--or else the entire community will be wiped out--the Rabbi must figure out what to do. Narrator John Rubinstein provides subtle voices for the Rabbi, his people, and the great sages whom he consults. He deftly conveys the Rabbi's frustrations, sorrows, and joys in his search for a solution to the community's terrible problem. There is no traditional happy ending here, but there is a triumph of sorts. The text includes a glossary of Jewish thought and thinkers at the end. (Some may want to listen to the end first.)
