On this day of Yom Kippur, the entire Jewish community of Strasbourg has gathered at the great synagogue. But Shimon Lévy, the hazàn, the brand new cantor with a magnificent voice, is not here. And for good reason: he was stabbed just before the celebration.

Adrien Blum, the vice-president of the community, guides the police commissioner Jean-Pierre Schweitzer, in charge of the investigation, to the synagogue. The two men will quickly become friends.
Say your prayer, Shimon Lévy is a thriller full of humor and twists and turns. We follow the footsteps of Commissioner Schweitzer in a year of rites, celebrations and life of the Jewish community in Strasbourg.
