The Jewish New Year stirs up a whole bucket of emotions for many of us. Praying to God. Apologizing to our family and friends–and even family- and friends-in-law. Questioning the choices we’ve made and the lives we’ve led. Taking steps to create a better you.
Maybe you’re proud of your year. Maybe you’re embarrassed. Or maybe you’re not sure yet. Well, now’s your chance to share your thoughts with the world.
MyJewishLearning wants your poems about the High Holidays. They can be funny, or serious, or both. They can rhyme. They can be long (though we are from the Internet short-attention-span generation). We want to be entertained, and we want to be inspired.
Submit a poem on any theme related to the High Holidays to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 25. We’ll publish the winning entries on MyJewishLearning.com just in time for Rosh Hashanah.
