This week we have an exciting new hatchling on Bloomah’s City Farm. It’s my new novel – Yedidya. I just published it digitally.
It’s 100% homegrown with right here on the farm.
Here’s a blurb:
Yedidya – A Novel in Weekly Installments
Based on the shiurim of Rabbi Daniel Yaakov Travis | Written by Naomi Elbinger
I haven’t read a novel in years, but this one is different. Yedidya is both a gripping story and a profound, uplifting exploration of what it means to be a faithful Jew in the modern world.Rabbi Yitzchok Jaeger: Author, the Guidelines halachah series
Meet Yedidya Steinhart: a typical yeshiva bachur, or at least he would like to be. He’s left behind a tough childhood in New York and is determined to make it at an elite Jerusalem yeshiva.
But then two unexpected events turn his world upside down: first, he is visited by an apparent nevuah ketanah, a “small prophecy” as described in the Talmud; second, he is falsely accused of a serious crime, with devastating consequences.
Yedidya’s quest for redemption brings unlikely friends, mentors, and adventures, as well as illuminating discoveries about happiness and faith through the ups and downs of real life.
