Admit it. You enjoyed Harry Potter.
All right, pretend it was your kids who enjoyed it. I won't tell.
Oy, bitul Toirah!
But let's be honest: it's not easy to compete with JK Rowling's magic,
Artemis Fowl's genius, or Bartimaeus's wit. So instead of digging into
masechet Avoda Zara, we escape into Percy Jackson's *actual* avoda zara.

All that changes now.

Back cover copy:

A yeshiva is supposed to be a place where young Jewish men go to learn
Torah. It follows an orderly, set routine. Decorum is observed. The food is
occasionally palatable. The curriculum is predictable, following the
tradition of centuries. In short, it is almost everything that Rabbi
White’s yeshiva is not.

What conventional yeshiva, for instance, would employ a mute giant with
superhuman strength? Or boast technology that would stun any future-tech
company? What Rosh Yeshiva would encourage his students to climb sheer rock
faces? Or serve them food that routinely sends them into gustatory rapture?
Or give them a practical, hands-on guide to the workings of the
universe—including field trips?

Ari Barak, a mischievous ADHD teenager, meets up with the brainy Howard
Segal, and together they quickly discover just how different this
institution is.

What is Rabbi White’s big secret? Can Ari and Howard solve the ancient
paradox of free will? And how will they clean up the mess they’ve made of
the history of the world?
