Mishkan HaSeder: Preparing for the Journey with a Poetry Haggadah

February 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Join Jessica Greenbaum, award winning poet and the co-editor of the first ever poetry haggadah just printed by the Central Conference of American Rabbis. We will spend the six weeks leading up to Passover investigating the haggadah’s choices of poems—over 80 by 70 poets of all stripes—that face each page of haggadah text. Through close reading we will consider how the poems open out the themes and emotional valence of parts of the seder, how they might enable our ambition of transformation, and how the poems let us tell the story as though it were happening to us. Those who wish can write their own poems as well. Open to all.
