The Attractive Young Rabbi
All three series of the BBC Radio 4 comedy drama about the collision between the old and the new in the Jewish community of Hillfield.
Abraham Fine lives a settled, comfortable life as Rabbi of Hillfield's Orthodox synagogue. But his world is turned upside down when a new Reform synagogue opens, led by a female Rabbi, Su Jacobs. Young, single, trendy and full of new ideas, she soon sets about modernisation: introducing her congregation to the delights of the internet, putting 'executive boxes' with TV screens in the pews and offering coffee and croissants during the services - much to Rabbi Fine's consternation. Fortunately, his wife, Sadie, is less resistant to change and is quick to befriend Su and endeavour to keep the peace between her and Abraham.
Written by Barry Grossman, this culture-clash comedy stars David de Keyser as Rabbi Abraham Fine and Tracy-Ann Oberman as Rabbi Su Jacobs, with Doreen Mantle as Sadie. Guest stars include Warren Mitchell, Geoffrey Whitehead and Nadim Sawalha.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
