Rabbi Avi Strausberg in conversation with Rabbi Shira Stutman and others.

The late Anat Gov was known as Israel’s Wendy Wasserstein, and in her gently veiled analogy, Ella and God must learn to help each other—after all, God is suffering from having accrued too much power, while Ella has lost whatever faith (in God) she might have had. As both battle low-grade depression, the fate of the world may just hang in the balan...
