About the Author

Brant Rosen is a rabbi, blogger, and social activist based in Chicago, Illinois, where he currently serves as the Midwest Regional Director for the American Friends Service Committee. In 2014, Rosen co-founded a social-justice focused Jewish congregation called Tzedek Chicago after many years serving as a congregational rabbi in Evanston, IL.


"If you want to understand the inner struggle of American Jews about Israel, this is a must read." --Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor, Tikkun magazine.
"Wrestling in the a Daylight is a must read. It offers a unique opportunity for Jews and non-Jews alike to follow the evolution in thinking of a deeply spiritual Jewish rabbi as he breaks with long-cherished beliefs about Zionism, and embraces the liberation of the Palestinians." --Medea Benjamin, author and co-founder, CODEPINK for Peace
"Wrestling in the Daylight is a work of extraordinary moral reckoning from America's bravest rabbi." --Ben Ehrenreich, author, The Way to the Spring: Life and Death in Palestine
"In Wrestling in the Daylight, Rosen patiently challenges the ways so many in the Jewish community seek to bend Judaism's liberationist themes to the goal of justifying Israeli repression. His intervention is a revolutionary and prophetic act." --Adam Horowitz, co-editor, Mondoweiss.net
"A heroic rabbi who risked a great deal to stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine and in support of justice and peace in the region; one of the righteous voices that demonstrate the true meaning of Judaism, transcending tribal identities and committed to social justice and human love." --Naomi Wolf, author, social critic and political activist
