7:30 PM - 9:00 PMCABI Sanctuary

Maeera Shreiber, Associate Professor at the University of Utah, will speak at the Friday night Shabbat service about the relationship between poetry and prayer.

Professor Shreiber is the author of Singing in a Strange Land: Jewish American Poetry and Poetics, as well as numerous articles on poetry, religion, and Jewish thought. She is the recipient of the Jordan Schnitzer Prize in Jewish Literature, a National Endowment Humanities fellowship, and has been a fellow at the Frankel Institute for Advanced Jewish Studies at the University of Michigan.

Recently returned from a Fulbright Fellowship where she was teaching at the University of Haifa, she is currently working on two new projects: a book-length study entitled Holy Envy: Poetry and the Judeo-Christian Borderzone, and a collection of essays constellated around the relation between prayer and contemporary Hebrew poetry.

Professor Shreiber will also be at CABI on Saturday, December 9 for a pot luck lunch after the Shabbat morning service at about 12:30 pm. Professor Shreiber and Janet Kaufman will lead a discussion about Jewish & Hebrew poetry.
