The Golem of Rabbi Loew by Johnny Townsend

Jacob and Esau Cohen are the closest of brothers. In fact, they're lovers. A Talmudic scholar dates an escort. A doctor tries to combine canine genes with those of Jews, to improve their chances of surviving a hostile world. A convert to Judaism asks his Mormon relatives to make a pact to hide him if the government ever comes after Jews again. A scientist tries to develop the "God spot" in the brains of his patients in order to create a messiah. The Golem of Prague is really Rabbi Loew's secret lover. While some of the Jews in Townsend's book are Orthodox, this collection of Jewish short stories most certainly is not.
