Roommate Love: Jujitsu Rabbi and the Godless Blonde by Rebecca Dana (Amy Einhorn)
After her live-in boyfriend confesses to being a serial cheat, Manhattan writer Rebecca Dana decamps to Brooklyn’s Crown Heights, home to the international headquarters of the ultra-orthodox Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish movement. Her new roommate? A disenthralled rabbi named Cosmo. As Dana rallies—dancing, dating—and Cosmo rebels (bacon!), they forge a lasting, unlikely alliance.
