POEM FOR A NEW CITY

Image
In times when we can't travel it's nice to write about places we have traveled to. Poem for a New City was featured as Poem of the Day with Brooklyn Poets today.




LOCATION SCOUTING

"Location Scouting" may be just the second of several more Los Angeles poems that want to come out of my notebook. It is featured on The Bridge today.


YOTZEI

Image
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.
