Blurb about ‘Times Square Rabbi’

Proferring an eight-step program for recovery based on the teachings of Maimonides, Rabbi Yehudah Fine prowls the mean streets of Manhattan, seeking young people to redeem from their chosen hells in his book Times Square Rabbi (Hazelden).

Fine’s gritty, true-to-life realism rings completely true — and it is: this is a non-fiction account of the streetwise rabbi’s attempts to find the hope in lost kids’ lives. Must reading for social workers and anyone concerned with the growing social problem of young people who take to the streets. ♦
