Poetry for Our Days
Israeli Poets Respond to October 7
Tuesdays: April 2, 9, & 16 • 7-8PM

The calamity of October 7 has left Israel and the Jewish world in shock and despair. As more details of the horror unfold, Israelis are finding themselves less able to talk about it. The expression heard most often these days is “ein milim – there are no words.” And yet, there are Israelis who are finding the words to express pain and anger, despair and abandonment. In our sessions we will read and discuss poetry written by Israelis during these very days in response to October 7. The poems are often raw and painful, while at the same time full of love and even hope. Study with master educator Rachel Korazim, a scholar of the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, who specializes in Holocaust education, poetry, and curriculum development in Israel. Rachel will join us over Zoom from her home in Israel.
