LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwired – Apr 9, 2013) – In “The Rebel and the Rabbi’s Son,” prominent real estate developer Israel “Izzy” Eichenstein reveals an inside look at his elite heritage as a member of a sacred Chassidic dynasty and his lifelong struggle to free himself from the bonds of his famous religious family. A direct descendant of the founder of Chassidic Judaism, Israel “Izzy” Eichenstein was told he was destined for greatness — but only if he obeyed every law of the ultra-Orthodox world into which he was born. Ruled by bearded, black-clad rabbis like Izzy’s father, it was (and remains) a society based on the religious practices of 18th-century European Jews. Television and movies were forbidden, there was a prayer for nearly every human activity, and contact with outsiders was strictly limited. Izzy knew from an early age that he did not fit in. But he also saw how misfits were treated — shamed, shunned by the community, and deserted by their families.
