Conference Proceeding: Poetry Reading and Discussion

What is a Jewish poem? How can poetry be integrated into educational curricula and cultural programming? How can poetry enhance our understanding of Jewish history and culture? What is a Jewish poetic praxis? What is the state of Jewish poetry today? Through a reading of their
own poems and an ensuing panel discussion, the poets will aim to address some of these questions. Each of the panelists has published widely on the Jewish experience (broadly defined) and is active in promoting poets and poetry in their communities. Three of the poets currently reside in the Massachusetts region.
