He experienced a unique blend of cultures growing up Jewish in Rio de Janeiro. And when he delved into the world of Orthodox Judaism, he was plagued by a crisis of faith. Now author and professor Carlos Goldberg is left with a wide variety of experiences to share—from the trials of coming of age in the 1960s to the complexities of marriage and relationships.

In The Sabbath Chicken and Other Stories, Goldberg presents a semifictional, semiautobiographical selection of eye-opening tales regarding his childhood, religious explorations, and forays into the academic world.

Join a young boy as he travels with his mother to pick up a chicken for the Sabbath, discovers panic-inducing religious conflicts at a Brooklyn Yeshiva, and explores the many difficulties of having a pregnancy terminated in the 1960s.

Both touching and humorous, these carefully selected tales work together to tell a story of culture, identity, and faith gained and lost—in God, in other people, and in oneself.

Through the lens of secular Judaism in America, this collection explores the struggles of leaving religion behind and taking control of one’s own fate, with many memorable interactions with a host of people featured along the way.
