@jfkantrowitz This post feels like a hug just like everything she does. I highly recommend her latest book. She didn’t tell me to post this. She’s shy to promote sometimes I think, but this book is beautiful, kind, and warm & everyone should have it for hard days. 🍂 – source

This poignant and engaging book takes place during Purim and centers around the mock trial of God for allowing terrible things to happen to the Jewish people. Set against the backdrop of a recent pogrom, three players agree to play the role of judges, while the innkeeper serves as prosecutor. However, they need a defense attorney - and a Stranger shows up, looking very familiar. Witty, ironic, and highly dramatic, this book is an unforgettable experience that blurs the lines between theater and literature.
