Author Aaron Freeman & Illustrator Sharon Rosenzweig joined us for our Limmud Atlanta event this year. Aaron is a stand-up comic and Sharon is an artist whose favorite medium is challah! These two are a hoot, wonderful, and talented. Their book, while "snarky, strange, and hilarious," is as wonderful as they are!
Reimagine the Torah with provocative humor and irreverent reverence.
Prepare to meet G-d (referred to by the ineffable Hebrew name YHWH) imagined as a female with green skin, a love of grilling (see Leviticus for menus) and a bloody awful temper. Moses plays her romantic lead, part of a multi-ethnic cast of characters featuring celebrities such as Barack Obama playing Joshua ( Yes, we Canaan! ). Each weekly portion gets a two-page spread. Like the original, the Comic Torah is not always suitable for children. This is a Torah experience like no other.
