New Poetry of Jewish Memory
A new generation of Jewish clergy and ritualists are using poetry and song as modes for reflecting on the Shoah and giving voice to its legacy

America has long been a place for Jewish creativity. As Holocaust commemoration turns from survivor testimony to the act of memory a new generation of Jewish clergy and ritualists are using poetry and song as modes for reflecting upon the Shoah and giving voice to its legacy. In this session, Zohar Atkins, Hila Ratzabi, Anne Lewis, and Yonatan Cohen wrestle with themes of the Shoah and present poetry and songs that give new form to its lasting memory.

This program was part of Meaning + Milestones: Spring Days of Learning, two days of global learning, ritual, and commemoration that reimagine and reflect on Yom HaShoah and celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut, both days of meaning and milestones in North America and Israel.
