Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Gerry Albarelli answered an "English Teacher Wanted" ad in a newspaper. It was for a Brooklyn yeshiva and directed applicants to call Rabbi Steiner. Gerry wasn't Jewish, but a cursory job interview won him the position nonetheless. As he prepared to step into a teaching job at a wild Hasidic yeshiva the Rabbi gave him one piece of advice: "Think of it this way, you're going to Mars." Teacha!: Stories From A Yeshiva is a fascinating collections of stories drawn from the life of a gentile teacher and his conservative Hasidic students.

    Teacha Stories from a Yeshiva

    Teacha! is written with such humor and care, that the reader seamlessly becomes part of an absurd world -- a world of black-coated students, their teachers and the Rabbis that lord over a school like emperors. Teachers are chastised for bringing paper skeletons to class. Students munch on pretzels and oranges when the teachers aren't looking. There is a general sense of chaos and intrigue that makes this a hard book to put down. Just a couple of months ago I had never heard of Mr. Albarelli. Now I find myself recommending his book to all my friends.

    Teacha Stories from a Yeshiva

    Teacha! is a wonderful book. The characters are funny and sweet. Though the scenes that Mr. Albarelli depicts can often be harsh or jarring, there is no malice. Also, there is no romanticism of Hasidic life. There is neither criticism nor approval. There is simply the story, told beautifully and naturally.

    The worst book I ever read.

    I bought this book based on the reviews and the unique subject material but was terribly disappointed. Dis-jointed ,2 dimensional charachters and poor writing; now I understand why he's teaching english in a hasidic school. He tries to wax poetic in describing his personal life (lodgings etc.) but it falls flat.

    Teacha! To Rebbe with Mixed Blessings!

    A comedic culture clash sparks this gentile teacher's account of immersion in a Yiddish Hasidic yeshiva in Brooklyn. This is an instant classic, with suprising and endearing twists. the author does not shy away from the religious conflicts and some startling imagery! Very enjoyable and as eye-opening as a shot of schnapps!
