9789652296696: A Tale of Two Avrahams

A Tale of Two Avrahams follows the lives or two men: one modern day, the other who lived 400 years ago. Both the heroes are fleeing from the threat of death: the first from renegade Jewish fanatics; the other from the Catholic Inquisition. The Israeli Avraham makes his way to Greece and Italy, with foes at his heels. In Crete, he discovers the tale of another Avraham, this one Italian and from the Renaissance, who is also fleeing from deadly enemies. These intermingled tales weave together with startling similarities and riveting differences as the two Avrahams cross four centuries and thousands of miles pursued by Jews, Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox, and Muslims alike and pull us into their conflicts and danger, friendships, and love. Living in ever-present danger, both Avrahams struggle to find hope and freedom from the fear that has driven them away from everything they know and love. Dr. Avi-hai draws upon his rich cultural background as well as his Jewish heritage to bring to life the men and the women whose souls are touched by the two Avrahams.

About the Author:

Avraham Avi-hai was born in Canada and immigrated to Israel in 1952. He has been a journalist (The Jerusalem Post; Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), a top-level civil servant in the offices of early Israeli Prime Ministers David Ben Gurion and Levi Eshkol, and an advisor to the legendary mayor of Jerusalem, Teddy Kollek. Avi-hai served for ten years as World Chairman of United Israel Appeal Keren Hayesod. He is the author of two noted non-fiction works.

Review:

I was totally consumed by this book. Usually I am very hard to mesmerize, but A Tale of Two Avrahams was the exception: I loved it! --Avraham Infeld, Former President of HILLEL, World-renowned Jewish Educator

A fascinating tale ... gripping ... surprising revelations. --Steve Linde, Editor The Jerusalem Post

A Tale of Two Avrahams is a narrative as compellingly gripping as it is beautifully composed. --Ambassador Yehuda Avner, bestselling author of The Prime Ministers
