Revealing Ourselves through Poetry: A Pre-Shavuot Reading

Hosted By: Ritualwell

Join Jewish poets Joy Ladin, Jake Marmer, & Rachel Neve-Midbar for a reading to celebrate the ways in which poetry creates space for us to receive revelation and to reveal ourselves in the process, as we prepare to enter the holiday of Shavuot.

There will be an open mic after the featured poets perform. The first 10 people to sign up for the open mic will receive a spot. Indicate on the registration form if you’d like to read.

Joy Ladin

Joy Ladin holds the Gottesman Chair in English at Yeshiva University, and, in 2007, became the first (and still only) openly transgender employee of an Orthodox Jewish institution. A poet, memoirist, and essayist, she long worked at the intersection of gender identity, religious tradition, and literature. Her memoir, Through the Door of Life: A Jewish Journey Between Genders, was a finalist for a National Jewish Book Award, and prompted conversations about trans and Jewish identities around country. Her most recent book, The Soul of the Stranger: Reading God and Torah from a Transgender Perspective, a Lambda Literary Award and Triangle Award finalist, is the first book-length work of trans theology from a Jewish perspective. Recognized as a founding exponent of trans poetics, she has published nine books of poetry, including two Lambda Literary Award finalists and, most recently, The Future is Trying to Tell Us Something: New and Selected Poems. Her work has been recognized with a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, a Fulbright Scholarship, and an American Council of Learned Societies Research Fellowship, among other honors. She serves on the Board of Keshet, an organization devoted to full inclusion of LGTBQ Jews in the Jewish world.
