Living in English, Writing in Hebrew
Join the Orange County Community Scholar Program for a special program in honor of Dr. Rachel Korazim, winner of CSP’s second annual “Maimonides Award for Excellence in Jewish Education” for her work in bringing Israeli poetry to life. In conversation with Basmat Hazan, a noted Israel theater director, playwright, author and educator, award-winning author Ruby Namdar will discuss his sources of inspiration, his new-found relationship to the great Jewish-American authors of the previous generation and the rewards–as well as the challenges–of living in one language while writing in another. Winner of the 2014 Sapir Prize, Israel’s most prestigious literary award, The Ruined House was translated into English by Hillel Halkin, and recognized by the NY Times as a “masterpiece of modern-religious literature.”
