Russell Stone is a Jewish Rabbi at a poor synagogue in New York City. He is a devout man with a problem. Membership is way down and he lacks the funds to keep his synagogue open. Things are looking very bleak, and he has grown progressively more cynical and bitter with the passage of time.

Just as he is on the verge of packing it all in, he receives some interesting news. A former member of his congregation has died and left the Rabbi a significant amount of money. A blessing? Or the start of something far more sinister? Can Rabbi Stone just accept the money and move on? His conscience says no. Step into his shoes as he travels all over Manhattan in his attempt to uncover the truth. Features rabbinical conversation methods, a unique method of fighting, an original score, and three different endings!

How many games do you get to play as a Jewish Rabbi?

The story goes like this- You play a Rabbi in NYC who owns and runs a synagogue; however business inset going too well, then an old member has died and has left lots of money available.

Your job is to investigate further this issue…

This game is interesting and the fighting/combat is fun while some of the tasks bought into question make you think about your subsequent actions and morals.

Definitely thought me new things about Judaism! :)
