Rabbi Menachem Creditor

It's hard to navigate the "how can I be a political pluralist in the midst of Donald Trump's ascent" conundrum. Not just because I'm a rabbi. Not just because I'm a Jew. Not just because I'm a Democrat. Not just because I'm a worried father.

Seeing Sylvia on Broadway was the dog lovers equivalent of going to Comicon or a Grateful Dead show. It was a beautiful production and charming play, but more than anything it was sharing the collective laughs with so many like minded dog lovers made the show so special for me and my 12 year old son.

I know a few people who don't like dogs and I've also met some who don't like chocolate, rainbows or red wine so perhaps Sylvia, which opened tonight at the Cort Theatre isn't for everyone but it most certainly is a crowd pleaser.
