This is the touching and uproarious true story of a bearded, skullcapped Orthodox Jewish teacher who finds himself assigned to a class of learning-impaired children in a black ghetto school in Buffalo, New York. In his humorous casual style, the author describes how he and his students overcome their reservations about each other and develop a singular relationship of mutual trust and regard. He demonstrates that diverse backgrounds and beliefs are not necessarily a barrier to harmony and racial rapport, that deep conviction, integrity and honesty lead to respect and understanding. The imaginative application of Talmudic precepts applied to inner-city educational problems helped the Dr. Lazerson develop an innovative approach to learning disabilities which has been widely acclaimed int eh worldwide educational community.
