Up To G-d

When is our relationship with God like a game of Red Rover?
How is the Exodus from Egypt like the leap from atop a zip-line wall?
Why is it good to let our kids want stuff?

In this thoughtfully crafted collection of relevant, poignant, and sometimes whimsical writings, D'vorah Miller offers responses to these and other questions about which you may or may not have wondered. She invites us to see ourselves in her very human, very hopeful reflections on the weekly Torah readings and the festivals. Through classical commentaries, personal stories, and creative perspectives, the author poses her musings in ways that challenge us to value ourselves enough to be more than we already are.

"This work is refreshingly written. It contains brief but pithy insights into life's most important issues, based on the weekly Torah readings. Highly recommended."
- Rabbi Dr. Akiva Tatz, founder and director of Jerusalem Medical Ethics Forum, author, senior lecturer at JLE-London

"With this book, D'vorah Miller has shared a universe of creative insights that merge ordinary experiences with extraordinary Biblical stories, showing us yet again how ancient wisdom still speaks so loudly to us today."
- Dr. Erica Brown, author, lecturer, and director of the Mayberg Center for Jewish Education and Leadership
