In the Bible, Esau’s firstborn rights are deceitfully given to his brother Jacob. Lost and desperate, Esau seeks advice and consultation from his uncle Ishmael. In this fantasy fable, the two men share the experience of being “other” in both the Genesis stories and subsequent rabbinic literature.
As their journeys unfold, a spokeswoman for God named Bat Kol intervenes. She offers Esau and Ishmael a way to overcome their unjust predicaments through reincarnation and rebirth in the world of today while retaining the inherited wisdom of the millennia. They can regain their lost legacies by saving a world on its way to self-destruction.
Written in both Hebrew and English, Othered No More is an epic poem that offers deeply relevant lessons on morality and ethics, as well as a plan for sustainable living amid threats of global climate change. Watch and wonder if two outcast biblical figures will agree to help alter the dire fate of our world.
