"For every kid who ever sneaked a comic book into the synagogue, there is a new hero--Rabbi Harvey, who tamed the Old West with Jewish wisdom and humor. I'm hiding a copy of this book in my tallis bag, hoping my kids will find it!"
--Rabbi Edward Feinstein, author of Tough Questions Jews Ask: A Young Adult's Guide to Building a Jewish Life

"Rabbi Harvey tames the West with wisdom on one hip, humor on the other."
--Stan Mack, author of The Story of the Jews: A 4,000-Year Adventure--A Graphic History Book

"Sheinkin has a comedian's flair for the ridiculous (and I mean that in a good way). That, coupled with his whimsical illustrations, makes The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey a hilarious read!"
--Arie Kaplan, author of Masters of the Comic Book Universe Revealed!

"With a blend of concise illustrations and snappy banter Steve Sheinkin pioneers Jewish folklore in novel directions. A friendly starter for readers of all ages wishing to explore Judaic parables of logic and wit. A jovial read that left me smiling."
--JT Waldman, author of Megillat Esther

"Imparts so much memorable, useful and enjoyable wisdom. And you gotta love the cartoons that deliver homey Jewish Yiddishkeit in a post-modern format. Move over Aesop's Fables, make room for Rabbi Harvey's tales."
--Shulamit Reinharz, PhD, Brandeis University, coauthor of The JGirl's Guide: The Young Jewish Woman's Handbook for Coming of Age
