The Poetry of Yehudah Amichai (Midrasha)
Mondays, November 4, 11, 18 and 25 at 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
Widely beloved as Israel’s greatest contemporary poet, Yehuda Amichai touches the soul through his evocative yet universally resonant musings that drift from the sacred to the mundane and everywhere in between. From war to love, from his parents to his children, from loving the Jews and despairing for the Jews, from shopping for groceries in Jerusalem to the politics of Jerusalem, from sex to God and then back again – Amichai’s poetry will take you on a journey that is as distant as it is personal. Join with Rabbi Marion for this four part series as we take a deep dive into the English translations of a selection of Amichai’s greatest writings – discovering, as we go, own stories and our own journeys carefully positioned between the lines.
