Dan Alter: Diaspora and Homecoming in Jewish Poetry: A Reading and Writing Class

May 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

|Recurring Program (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until May 22, 2022

Free

Since our beginnings, the ache of exile and longing to come home have run through Jewish life and writings: our poetry is rich with them. We will read Biblical, Golden Age Spain, Modernist and contemporary texts, and write our own pieces in response. For writers of any experience level—come prepared to generate some material!

5 sessions: April 10, 25, May 1, 15, 22 (no meetings April 17 – Passover, May 8 – Mother’s Day) You must register at the bottom of this screen.

We also invite you to join Dan at a poetry event sponsored by the Center for Jewish Studies at UC Berkeley: AT HOME IN AMERICA? THREE POETS ON BELONGING & DIASPORA IN AN UNSETTLED MOMENT with poets Daniel Khalastchi and Erika Meitner, moderated by Prof. Naomi Seidman

THURSDAY, APRIL 21 at 5:30 PM at The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life 2121 Allston Way, Berkeley.
