Etz Hayim Synagogue's Continuing Education Program - Talking to God through Poetry

7 PM, Etz Hayim Synagogue, Derry

Midge Goldberg, a published poet, received the 2015 Richard Wilbur Poetry Award for her book Snowman's Code, which was also chosen as the 2016 New Hampshire Literary Awards Reader's Choice Award for Outstanding Book of Poetry. There are many ways to talk to God: synagogue prayers--with their tradition, familiarity, and communal nature--and personal prayers. But poetry occupies a middle space, words that express your own feelings but in a way that others may understand and relate to their own experiences. Come listen to some poems about God; talk about what makes them successful or not; and, if you like, bring a poem of your own to share.
