The God Squad
The God Squad is not your average advice column. Rabbi Marc Gellman employs his years of religious and philosophical study and experience to answer reader questions on topical and spiritual issues, from interfaith marriage to news events. He also draws on the expertise of numerous advisors to offer authentic insights on the rich palette of faiths in America. Gellman writes in a lively, non-preachy style that speaks directly to readers. Special holiday messages.
