Confessions of a Rabbi's Daughter

Book, Music & Lyrics by Emily Rose Simons

An orthodox Rabbi's daughter realises her feelings for her best friend Sarah shortly after becoming engaged to Menachem.

Rachel Wiseman has always wanted to make her father, Rabbi Wiseman, proud by becoming a Rabbitzen (a Rabbi’s Wife). As her parents plan their daughter’s forthcoming nuptials, her friendship with Sarah blossoms into love. Rachel’s turbulent emotional struggle to decide between her heart and her father’s dreams is presented through songs that promise to pluck the heartstrings and make you smile.
