Have you always wished you had more poetry in your life? Do you know that there is a world of wonderful Jewish poetry waiting to be enjoyed? Join a roundtable discussion about the great poets of Jewish history as we cover a handful of their seminal works one Sunday morning per month. Literary figures to include Emma Lazarus, Allen Ginsberg, Yehuda Amichai, and Adrienne Rich, among others. CBI congregant and poet Claire Serpi will introduce each writer with a brief biography before we embark on a close reading of selected poems and workshop-style commentary. No prior background necessary!
