Someday, Lena hopes to be a world-famous detective. But in the meantime, she’s working on “The Case of the Mysterious Rabbi!” It’s a tricky one. The rabbi seems to be everywhere. With her loyal dog at her side, Lena investigates Rabbi Max as he teaches Torah, builds a sukkah, bakes some challah, and of course…slurps spaghetti!  How can one person do so many different things in so many different places? Can Lena crack the case?
