Sometimes books tell us more about the way life should be than about the way life is. Ted Pailet has spent countless hours working to resolve dispute between rabbis and lay leaders of their congregations. It would be wonderful if if conflicts between pitched enemies could resolve themselves as Rabbi Flowers' does. It would be wonderful if enemies could become friends the way the protagonists in this book do. Most of the time, though, that just doesn't happen. Still the book is a remarkable reflection of the author's admirable optimism in the face of difficult circumstances, and as my favorite children's book, Horton Hatches the Egg, ends, "It should be, it should be, it should be that way!"
For us rabbis, this is a very busy time of year. Still, when I began to read THE AFFAIRS OF RABBI FLOWERS, I could not put it down until I finished. Ted Pailet weaves a most readable story about a subject he knows better, I would bet, than anyone else in the world.

I was intrigued by what the inspiration behind the story might be. Some of the subtle nuances were highly titillating. Most enjoyable read and highly recommend!

This book is a good look behind the scenes of a southern Reform Jewish Congregation and the politics of the clergy lay leader relationship.
