New frontiers! The world is gearing up for a Summer like no other. The birds are chirping, the sun bakes the sidewalk, and slowly battered and tentative humanity sticks its nose forth from quarantine and eases back into the rhythm of life.
I want to contribute to this new wealth of experiences in the best way possible – by writing about G-d and Judaism. Writing worth a price. For the first time ever, I am offering a whole slate of new essays — at least 18, one for each Thursday of the Summer, one for each number of “Chai,” “Life” — on my Substack.
Until now, my Substack has been used only for occasional little free podcasts, which is typical of my approach to life, as that platform is built for consistent, high-quality paid newsletters. As the ancient hipster said to his friends who were skeptical of that newfangled invention, the wheel, it is time to get on the bandwagon. 5 of those 18 Substack essays will be available for free to the public like all past online “Not A Jungle” essays. The rest will be offered only to paid subscribers at the rate of $5 (“Five Big Ones”) a month.
Subscribe today to make sure your inbox is blessed with the glory of these topics from 5/27:
-How Good is Caused by Evil (and How to Escape)
-Leibniz and the Kabbalah
