Lamed Shapiro

Yale University Press

This chapter presents the text of Lamed Shapiro's short fiction titled The Rebbe and the Rebbetsin. It explains that the story is about a Jewish couple with the wife claiming to hear angels chanting when they study the Torah and smell the odors of Paradise when the husband is cooking fish. It contends that the loving portrait of a traditional Jewish couple, suggests a future as barren as the rabbinic couple itself.

Keywords:   The Rebbe and the Rebbetsin, Lamed Shapiro, Jewish couple, angels, Torah, rabbinic couple, Paradise
