“Rabbi Dovid M. Cohen has written the orthodox Jewish version of A Prairie Home Companion, with New York’s Upper West Side as Lake Wobegon. This entertaining and illuminating volume shares life lessons and rabbinic answers to human dilemmas with a mix of humor, sadness and seriousness. It is serious and enjoyable, a nice read.”
