Marcelo in the Real World

by Francisco X. Stork

Guide Mentor

Character Role Analysis

Rabbi Heschel

Rabbi Heschel is the closest thing Marcelo has to a spiritual leader. Not only does she teach him about Judaism, she's there when he needs to talk about sex, shame, and justice—you know, all the major human quandaries. She encourages him to follow the fire in his heart, by which she means the desire to do the right thing and help Ixtel. Basically, she's Marcelo's Dumbledore. Harry Potter holla.
