The Almighty has provided Rabbi Jay with a keen sense of humor and the ability to appreciate the many absurd moments of life and capture them for posterity. The book is a rare opportunity to enjoy some of the strange and off the wall experiences of the author. You will smile, laugh and find the book a powerful antidote to depression and despair. Ideal for gift giving and for folks in need of some good humor. Here is what some readers had to say about the book; Nadia, the Russian cleaning lady: "Each week when I come to clean the Karzen apartment, I must also listen to the stories contained in the book OFF THE WALL. After they are explained to me, I understand them to be humorous. I am told to recommend this book very highly." Hassan, the former janitor of the Karzen apartment building: "On many occasions I come into the Karzen home for a glass of water. Before drinking, I am asked to listen to the stories found in the book called OFF THE WALL. While I, as an Arab, cannot fully appreciate the humor, I am confident, that my Jewish cousins will find the volume to be very funny and enjoyable." Yossie, the Diskin Street handyman: "Items from OFF THE WALLhave been read to me. I have laughed and enjoyed the stories very much. I know that everyone reading this entire book from cover to cover will chuckle and find it amusing." Velvel, a neighbour: "For year, I have been a sounding board for many of the anecdotes contained in this OFF THE WALLanthology. Now that the book has finally been published, I urge everyone to purchase and read the funny material - especially the E-mail segment - my favorite section, and the Karzenisms. I hope you also enjoy this true fiction. I can hardly wait for Volume 2."
