While most peo­ple were enjoy­ing well-deserved retire­ment, at age 73, author Rab­bi Corinne Cop­nick began her six-year course of study and was ordained a rab­bi at the age of 79. The ordi­na­tion was the begin­ning of a new adven­ture; she’s had an uncon­ven­tion­al pul­pit.” In A Rab­bi at Sea, Rab­bi Cop­nick nar­rates 40 inter­con­nect­ed sto­ries of her trav­el expe­ri­ences as a guest rab­bi on cruise ships. On every jour­ney and in every coun­try vis­it­ed, she dis­cov­ered and explored Jew­ish life — from Hawaii to Aus­tralia, the Mediter­ranean, North Africa, South­east Asia, Cen­tral ad South Amer­i­ca, and every­where in between. Offer­ing a glob­al per­spec­tive, she presents a host of insights about the cul­ture and the peo­ple she encoun­tered through­out her travels.
