It's a little-known fact that Elvis Presley-the most Christian icon of American pop culture-was the direct descendent of Jews. This book provides a behind-the-scenes account of the authors' search, from Israel to Graceland, to find the true Jewish roots of the King. With the help of a Hasidic Jewish Elvis impersonator, Dan Hartel, who performs at senior citizens' homes under the stage name "Schmelvis," and an eccentric Orthodox rabbi named Reuben Poupko, the authors trace Elvis's Jewish roots all the way to Israel.
