Press reviews

  • It’s funny, moving, witty, sophisticated, exhilarating and Midrashically illuminating. Don’t miss it [Jewish News, Melbourne ]
  • Hilarious, a hit! [The Jewish Chronicle, London ]
  • It is a wonderful, vibrant modern Midrash and it will be a long time before you get to see another telling of the Bible as hilarious, joyful and honest as this one [Monash University]
  • Captured my own sense of both belonging to the tradition, but also wrestling with it in order to make it right and just, and to reclaim the fullness of the feminine in all its dimensions [Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation.]
