Celebrating the publication of
101 Jewish Poems for the Third Millennium
edited by Matthew E. Silverman and Nancy Naomi Carlson
"The poems in this finely curated anthology bear witness to the depth and breadth of Jewish tradition and culture. Somehow, these poems are able to comprehend horror and happiness, war and celebration, ritual and irreverence, awe and humor – all in the service of living life to the fullest despite a long and ongoing history of oppression. The light of the Jewish tradition shines brilliantly from these pages; we need that light now, and always." ~ Luke Hankins
