The Rabbi's Knight is an award-winning historical novel that takes place at the twilight of the Crusades in the year 1290. This fascinating and meticulously researched tale weaves together threads of history, adventure, romance, and Kabalistic teaching in a dramatic quest to decipher the wisdom of an ancient sacred scroll. With marvelous detail and a deep comprehension of spiritual truths, the author spins a suspenseful narrative and ingenious plot that will engage readers on many levels.
