In his application to become the spiritual leader of the King Solomon Motorcycle Club, Norman Plummer recalls the momentous events that shaped his life during one sultry Los Angeles summer.

Set in 1963—after the Cuban Missile Crisis, but before JFK’s assassination—Norman begins to prepare Bel Air heiress Bayla Adler for a bat mitzvah she doesn’t want. The studious teenage son of a ne’er-do-well gambler, Norman finds himself in a strange new world of trophy wives, pool boys, and plastic surgeons—a world where anything might be bought, except the cooperation of the beautiful Bayla.

Under threat of nuclear war and the gorgeous California sun, the two forge a tentative truce. They may not be learning Hebrew, but through the miracle of motorcycles and the epiphanies of the road, Bayla and Norman just might learn to shape their own destinies. And—for a few momentous hours—become a latter-day Bonnie and Clyde searching for a Reverse Jewish Nose Job in the City of Angels.

In an unforgettable story of lost innocence and found passion—of love and motorcycles—readers will be rooting for this unlikely couple and their bid to change the world.

Jewish Book Council, founded in 1944, is the longest-running organization devoted exclusively to the support and celebration of Jewish literature. Allan Appel’s The Hebrew Tutor of Bel Air captures the voice of eccentric Hebrew scholar Norman Plummer, as he recounts the story of his seventeen-year-old self tutoring Bel Air princess Bayla Adler in the summer of 1963.

In Allan Appel’s recently published novel, The Hebrew Tutor of Bel Air, teen nebbish Norman Plummer is drawn into a battle of wills and values when he is hired to tutor the seductive and wealthy Bayla Adler for her bat mitzvah. To better understand the book’s unique subject matter, the Forward turned to an expert: Nick Weiss, brother of former Forward staff writer Anthony Weiss, is himself a Hebrew tutor in Los Angeles as well as a film director. Anthony recently sat down with Nick in a Beverly Hills delicatessen to discuss the life of a Hebrew tutor. Anthony Weiss: Tell us what you thought.
