YOTZEI

It was Poem of the Day over at Brooklyn Poets' The Bridge today!

The poem is inspired by the fact that the two Hebrew verb forms for "having fulfilled a (religious) commandment/obligation" and the present tense sg masc for "to go out/to exit" are identical.




LOUD, PROUD, AND JEWISH

Image
When Rabbi Menachem Creditor asked me if I had a poem that would fit into a collection he was working on, titled "Loud, Proud, and Jewish," I was blown away. Wow, yes, let me see and send you a couple... And now, my poem Shema is part of a book in which diverse Jewish voices discuss "ways to be unapologetically Jewish and not become insular," as Menachem writes in his foreword. 
I am so honored and grateful to have a poem included in this important manifesto, alongside an array of Jewish professionals far more accomplished than I am.
