No, not a lawyer either! "Not a doctor, not a lawyer, then maybe a businessman? You want to go into business. You'll be a great success I'm sure. Actually Mrs Schwartz, not a businessman either. I'm studying to be a rabbi. You want to be a rabbi? I don't understand. Your father is a successful doctor and you want to be a rabbi?". Not a Job for a Nice Jewish Boy. London: Bellew Publishing. He has also illustrated 11 books with cartoons and has contributed cartoons to books and magazines.

DAN COHN-SHERBOK spent more than a decade studying to become a congregational rabbi. This is his explanation of why, in his words, being a rabbi is not a job for a nice Jewish boy. In the end, though, he gave it all up and became an academic instead. His partly fictionalised memoir starts at his bar mitzvah, where the young Cohn-Sherbok discovers the thrills of addressing an eager audience: he brings tears to his mother’s eyes, and, relishing the adulation, decides to become a rabbi. Sadly, this is pretty much the only time that he manages to please.

You'd think the decision to become a clergyman in any faith would be a subject only the especially devout would find of interest. Not so. This narrative of searching for, and ultimately finding, a satisfying career without compromising one's convictions offers insights that can benefit any professional. A young man from Denver who sets out to pursue his chosen career, soon learns from assignments in England, South Africa, Australia, and the American South, that the typical demands of clergy life (holding services, instructing young people, ministering to the sick and troubled, etc.) are just the start of the real job. How he meets and deals with pressures to conform with community norms, while constantly living up to the expectations and prejudices of powerful cliques and individuals within his congregations, offers valuable survival lessons for newcomers to any company or organization. Our hero may not always appear lovable, but he is honest, sincere, and ultimately vindicated in his struggle to succeed on his own terms. All in all, an engrossing read enlivened by the author's charming illustrations.

The travails of a young American Jewish lad that decides to become a rabbi. It is written in a warm and humorous style that makes you think with a smile. He travels the world. Just because it seems humorous, doesn't mean it is all ha. ha. There's tragedy, too. Worth reading.
