The Season of Pepsi Meyers is an exciting, edge-of-the-seat story, through which readers discover the underlying principles of the Jewish faith and the sweet beauty of authentic Jewish living.
The year is 2040 and it’s been thirteen years since the New York Yankees played post-season baseball. With the number one pick in the draft, they choose a remarkably gifted ballplayer from the Binghamton, New York area, named Pepsi Meyers. Although just eighteen years old, Pepsi earns a place on the Major League roster and revitalizes the Yankees with his spectacular play.
Pepsi also happens to be Jewish. As the season progresses, the city is energized by the newfound success of its beloved team. At the same time, Pepsi and his family discover a world they never knew existed, as they are exposed for the first time, to Torah and the way of life it endorses.
Pepsi’s struggle with the tug-of-war between the spiritual and the mundane and how it affects him, his teammates and the City of New York is both an entertaining baseball tale, and a study into the priorities and meaningful choices we all have to make in our lives.
So yes…it is a book about baseball. But in truth, it is so much more.THE JEWISH INSIGHTS
If Shlomo Carlebach is the rabbi/troubadour of Jewish music, Abie Rotenberg is its poet laureate – an Orthodox Paul Simon – as capable at penning seriously contemplative, insightful or even whimsical lyrics as he is at composing the kind of tunes that we identify with as a people regardless of our level of observance. His is the type of music that connects on that visceral yet insightful level we often forget we have.Y. S. Haber, THE JEWISH PRESS
