Danya Ruttenberg on Surprised by God

In this religious coming-of-age story, Danya Ruttenberg found, lost, and found again like-minded seekers in her winding, semi-reluctant path through traditional Jewish practice – a path that eventually took her to the rabbinate. Rabbi Ruttenberg discussed her journey, a story that weaves the discipline of traditional Judaism to her 21st-century life.

Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg is the editor of Yentl’s Revenge: The Next Wave of Jewish Feminism and The Passionate Torah: Judaism and Sex. A contributor to Lilith magazine,, and the academic journal Women in Judaism, she teaches and lectures nationwide.
