In education

We are pleased to announce the formation of
THE HOLY BLOSSOM CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY JEWISH LITERATURE
Under the chair of Cynthia Good, this Centre will bring the finest to Holy Blossom Temple.

WritersThe Centre is a program for those who are truly committed to reading the best of Jewish literature, expressing themselves through the written word and exploring new formats, media and academic thinking around narrative and literature.

For Readers

We will offer book clubs that encourage social reading and discussion, and classes led by experts in a wide variety of genres, themes and formats.

For Writers

For every level of writing ability we will present workshops and master classes to help self-expression through writing. We will bring in well-known writers as mentors and develop some international partnerships.

For Thinkers

We will bring speakers to enrich us and entertain us. We will feature panels, interviews, readings and presentations on literature and its relationship to other media. Academics will share their research and everyone will encourage participation and collaboration.

Our first program is Alison Pick’s Book Talk, Between Gods, which took place on Monday February 9th. Our second program will be with Writer in Residence, Evan Fallenberg, March 26 & 29-29, 2015. For more information, please click here.
