Navigating the boundaries of sacred and profane David Goldberg and Elli Sarah are two rabbis who have stuck by their convictions, approaching Judaism with boldness, passion and unfailing intellectual rigour.

Their books offer templates for ‘trouble-making Judaism’, drawing on a wide range of sources, each in their own way. Although the two have divergent opinions on many issues, both struggle to redefine the more radical aspects of Jewish heritage, rendering Judaism a rich and potent tool in shaping the future.
