Today we’re visiting Will Smith’s old stomping ground. A 17-year-old compulsive gambler in 1963 Los Angeles travels to Will Smith’s hood to tutor 16-year-old Bat Mizvah trainee Bayla Adler. Chaos ensues –  it’s a matter of life and $20,000. Allan Apel dedicated The Hebrew Tutor of Bel-Air:

and my teacher Dr. David Lieber

Dr. David Leo Lieber, a rabbi, often advised his fellow scholars: “You can always tell someone to go to hell later.” He graduated from the College of the City of New York (magna cum laude) and served as President of the American Jewish University.
