GIVETH AND TAKETH by Rota
Was Donald Trump able to become President because God abandoned us? Are Jews white? Does Hell have better weather than Heaven? In Giveth and Taketh, Rota addresses all of these questions, discussing his own experience and political theology as a Jewish person in the Trump-era while also exploring broader issues of race, mental health and grief.
