About the Author

Reboot is a national network of young, creative Jews founded on the belief that every generation must grapple with the questions of identity, community, and meaning on its own terms. Reboot has created over 100 projects, including the National Day of Unplugging; the international architecture contest Sukkah City; and the Idelsohn Society for Musical Preservation, a record label and archive dedicated to tracking down lost Jewish music and the musicians who created it. Roger Bennett, writer, broadcaster, and cofounder of Reboot, is the author of several books, including Bar Mitzvah Disco. He lives with his family in New York City.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"There's no greater challenge and thrill than grappling with the first five books of the Bible. Whether you read the stories as sacred texts or literature, for moral guidance or entertainment, they are life-changing. The energy and thought behind the commentaries contained in Unscrolled are contagious. You will find yourself wanting to begin again at the beginning of everything."
–Jonathan Safran Foer

“An ideal gift for anyone looking to hear a very old text in a very new voice, giving permission to wrestle, to reimagine, to reject, to love, to stand in awe, and to be surprised.”
–Rabbi Sharon Brous, Founder, IKAR, Los Angeles
