As the plane winged its way from Moscow to Kiev, Bleemie Kleiner – huddled deep down inside a not so clean airline blanket and wedged amongst hulking, vodka reeking Russians – wondered what temporary insanity had claimed her. Alone, except for her 48 cans of tuna, 10 pounds of cheese and 10 pounds of salami, her high flying adventure was just beginning.
As the pages of this unique saga unfold, you will laugh with Bleemie, cry with Bleemie, and ultimately wish that you, too, could have shared with Bleemie in the rediscovery of those “neshamos” in Kiev that 70 years of Communist domination could not obliterate. Bleemie, the little seminary graduate from Flatbush... Bleemie, who planted a new world of hope in the old world of cynicism...
Bleemie, the exuberant, creative, empathetic Bais Yaakov teacher for all seasons and all students (especially in Kiev) “presents” us with a fascinating true story of adventures “far and away” beyond the usual.
By the time you have finished this charming, funny, and yet oh, so significant book, you will be clamoring for more, much more! Goldy Rosenberg demonstrates unique ability to extract the best and the most humorous from each of the many unusual situations that Bleemie encounters as she pursues her dream of teaching Russian girls in Kiev. This book will take you on an unusual trip, one that will clutch at your heartstrings and change your perspective – and what a whale of a time you’ll have on the way!
