Saturday, December 9, 2017 • 21 Kislev 5778

12:30 PM - 2:30 PMCABI Social Hall

Maeera Shreiber, Associate Professor at the University of Utah, will join us at a pot luck kiddush lunch after the Shabbat morning service to lead a discussion about Jewish & Hebrew poetry along with CABI member Janet Kaufman.

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 the Friday evening Shabbat service on December 8 as a guest speaker, discussing  the relationship between poetry and prayer.
