Rabbi Brant Rosen, author of
Wrestling in the Daylight:
A Rabbi's Path to Palestinian Solidarity
In 2006 Rabbi Brant Rosen, who serves a Jewish Reconstructionist congregation in Evanston, Illinois, launched a blog called Shalom Rav. The focus of his writing-and his activism-changed dramatically in December 2008, when Israel launched a 23-day military attack against Gaza, causing him to deeply question his lifelong liberal Zionism. Rabbi Rosen chose to make his struggle public: to wrestle in the daylight. Wrestling in the Daylight: A Rabbi's Path to Palestinian Solidarity is Rosen's self-curated compilation of these blog posts.
