Songs from the Heart: Sacred and Secular Jewish Poetry with Rabbi David Kosak

|Recurring Event (See all)

From the Song of the Sea in the Torah, to the entire Book of Psalms; from the Medieval Wine-Song Salons to the poets of Israel today, poetry has always been an important part of Jewish culture. While poetry has fallen out of favor in contemporary America, it has historically been the preferred medium to remember, to protest and to give expression to human yearnings.

We will examine some well-known and lesser-known poets and discuss their hopes and values. All classes will be held via Zoom, unless conditions change.

RSVP to Lisa-Marie: receptionist@nevehshalom.org.

There will be a concluding Poetry-Wine Salon on Sunday, January 31, 7:00pm Like our medieval ancestors, we will combine an evening of poetry, wine, and music to relive the Salons of Iberia which brought together Jew, Muslim, and Christian.
