Joshua Strauss is a highly respected attorney and Devi’s older brother. He is an ordained rabbi, but decided that law was more the field for him. He radiates solidity, kindness and charm.
Elie had a major crush on him when they were kids, and she never quite forgot him.
Joshua is kosher, somewhat observant and living a not-so-fun life as a single man in New York. He was devoted to his wife Becca who died some years ago and although his kids try to fix him up (as does the rabbi and fellow congregants of his synagogue) he’s not yet found the one.
