He's back - the venerable Yerushalmi whose escapades have entertained us for over a decade in The People Speak Series!
We were first introduced to this then octogenarian from Meah Shearim — who has come to be known simply as "the Yerushalmi" — when he wrote of his wife's interesting habit of reading the notes left in the cracks of the Western Wall and of their ingenious ways of tracking down the writers of those notes to help them with their troubles. Since that time, we have traveled with the Yerushalmi near and far, and have met many colorful personalities along the way.
Written in an authentic Yerushalmi style that is a piquant mixture of sweet and sharp, innocent and shrewd, candid and restrained, these true stories are surprising, touching, poignant and hilarious — and always charmingly perceptive.
The Yerushalmi's letters originally appeared throughout the seven volumes of the popular People Speak series. For the first time, Rabbi Chaim Walder has now brought together eighteen of the Yerushalmi's best stories in one volume╖ and has added another five new enthralling adventures! Also included is a mini-album of nearly a hundred full-color pictures of authentic Yerushalmi life by the well-known Israeli photographic artist Baruch Yaary.
