Poetry Toward a Promised Land: A New Haggadah

Location: Community House

From: Wednesdays, March 6 – April 24, 10:30 am

Details:

Taught by Jessica Greenbaum

A sneak preview of a forthcoming Poetry Haggadah from the Central Conference of American Rabbis. Pairing traditional haggadah liturgy with thematic poetry from 70+ poets, this text enhances engagement between tradition, history, themes of Exodus, and the aspirational self participating in a Seder. We will study two steps of the Seder per week, and read and write our own poems.
