Yentl Mendel is the boyish daughter and only child of long widowed Rebbe Mendel. He teaches Talmud to local boys and secretly to Yentl since girls are not allowed to learn the law. When her father dies, Yentl is left all alone. She makes the momentous decision to leave the village and, disguised as a boy and calling herself Anshel, she seeks and gets admitted to a Yeshiva to study. She befriends Avigdor who is engaged to Haddas. Her family calls off the wedding when they discover Avigdor's brother committed suicide. Anshel then finds 'him'-self in the awkward position of being called into service as substitute bridegroom. But Haddas still wants Avigdor. After numerous complications, including Avidor and Yentl falling in love with each other and she telling him her secret, everyone gets what they want in life. Anshel, now Yentl once again, goes off to America to pursue her dream of serious study in Yeshiva, where she will be able to study without needing to hide her identity as a woman.

Jack Rosenthal's last act by Jack Rosenthal ( Recording )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Jack Rosenthal had always resisted writing an autobiography, until he hit on an original way of writing it: it would be as a screenplay, with himself as the central character, the storyline that of his own life, the supporting cast drawn from the many wonderful and sometimes eccentric people who touched, shaped and shared that life. What a prospect, coming from the author of such memorable classics as Bar Mitzvah boy, The evacuees, London's burning, The knowledge and P'tang Yang, Kipperbang, a writer who uniquely won three successive BAFTA Awards. The story moves from Manchester in the 30s - via school, evacuation, university, the Navy, the early days of Granada TV (he wrote 129 pioneering episodes of Coronation Street), the Busby Boys, marriage and life with Maureen Lipman, fatherhood, writing the famous plays, working with Streisand - to Muswell Hill in the 90s. Sharp, funny, evocative, teeming with memorable stories and characters.
