An American Chabad rabbi working in Uruguay to "activate souls," and a well established doctor, self proclaimed atheist from the interior of Argentina, explore their Jewishnesss, establishing a line of communication that not only transcends their differences but feeds off them…
Part I (Messages 1 to 10)
Dear Rabbi, I am an Ashkenazi Jew from Cordoba, Argentina, and I am writing to you regarding some doubts I have about some religious matters...

Part VIII [Messages 100-111]

Part IX [Messages 112-121]
I already mentioned to you that the negative reactions reflect what is happening in the community with regards to this matter. This whole debate is therefore very positive...
