[email protected]: Love Urgently, Wistfully, Playfully, Sacredly: Selected Love Poems by Sivan Har-Shefi

With Professor Laura Wiseman, Associate Professor, Koschitzky Family Chair in Jewish Teacher Education

This session introduces readers to Sivan Har-Shefi, a contemporary poet who writes and resides in Israel, and to a sequence of her love poems. They are at once subtle, sacred, and breathtakingly intimate. They incorporate motifs of love, Jerusalem, and the Temple, originating in the Bible and Midrash, and are sculpted with a feminine and feminist hand. We’ll read the poems and look at few of the intertexts and techniques that serve as catalysts for the synergy of these love-inflected works of art.
