The Velveteen Rabbi
The Velveteen Rabbi is Rachael Barenblat. She is not a rabbi, but she is a writer, a poet, a lover of Torah, and a rabbinic student. Here is an older post on the weekly Torah reading that deals with Balaam and his donkey. I think you'll appreciate how this articulate young Jewish woman approaches this passage, taking it seriously and drawing meaning from the story.
