In amazing detail, Rabbi Dr Noteh Glogauer vividly recounts the first thirty years of his life. Born in South Africa into a traditional Jewish family, his parents emigrate to Canada to escape the oppressive apartheid regime. The young Arnie G. is popular in his first (non-Jewish) school, acting the class clown and excelling at team sports. Latent anti-Semitism engenders in him feelings of being different, inspiring him to seek purpose in Jewish community life. Drawn into a career in teaching, he realises that to promote his ideas on education - nurturing individuality, striving for personal excellence, innovation, cooperation and sharing - he needs to become a school principal himself, to be the role model embodying the core values of the institution. But to be principal of an Orthodox school he must be ordained a rabbi. In achieving his ambition, Glogauer and his own young family embark on a tortuous odyssey across the continent ... More than just a memoir - each significant anecdote is accompanied with poignant educational advice, a must have guidebook for any educator.
