Where the Torah meets the surf, Surfers Who Don't Surf is six decades of surf adventures and memories from the Surfing Rabbi--Nachum Shifren.
This book travels from the 1960s to the twenty-first century, Malibu to Mexico, Hawaii to Puerto Rico and details an eclectic cast of characters famous and anonymous that includes: Tom Zahn, Miki "Da Cat" Dora, Marilyn Monroe, Honolulu Lulu, Pat Tobin, Mike Doyle, surfing's Calamity Jane, Indo Dan, and many other characters you might expect and not expect.
With words of wisdom by the known and saintly kabbalist, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, Surfers Who Don't Surf mixes the spiritual and the earthly with humor and surf stoke.
For those who have listened to Rabbi Shifren's first book, Surfing Rabbi, they will find a rich experience by spirit and sea.
