In 2006, Rabbi Brant Rosen launched a blog called Shalom Rav, in which he reflected on various social-justice issues. In 2008, Israel launched a harsh attack against Gaza—and caused Rosen to deeply question his lifelong liberal Zionism. Unlike the biblical Jacob, who wrestled with his conscience in the dark of night, Rabbi Rosen chose to "wrestle in the daylight", which he did through many deep, thoughtful interactions on his blog.

In Wrestling in the Daylight
The Foreword is written by Adam Horowitz, Co-Editor of the current affairs website Mondoweiss.net.
