"Young Lena, an aspiring detective, secretly observes the rabbi of her synagogue doing his numerous tasks and performing his varied responsibilities.... Childlike cartoon drawings reflect a multigenerational suburban Jewish community; Rabbi Max, his daughter and their family present white, but the broader congregation is racially diverse, and at least one member uses a wheelchair....Helps solve the mystery of a rabbi's professional life from a child's perspective." -- Kirkus Reviews
