Congratulations (and a hearty kol ha-kavod) are in order to Rachel Barenblat, one of the authors of God: Jewish Choices for Struggling the Ultimate.
Rachel recently received a very public yasher koach from Nick Kristof in his NY Times column:
If this is a testing time, then some have passed with flying colors. Hats off to a rabbinical student in Massachusetts, Rachel Barenblat, who raised money to replace prayer rugs that a drunken intruder had urinated on at a mosque. She told me that she quickly raised more than $1,100 from Jews and Christians alike.
