Poets as Prophets

October Event 2020

October Sneak Preview Kicks Off 5781

An enthusiastic and appreciative audience attended “Windows to Israeli Society through Literature and Life,” a lively online conversation between Rachel Korazim and Laura Mandel, JArtsBoston Executive Director.

A maven of Israeli poetry and literature, and a delightfully engaging teacher, Rachel Korazim is LimmudBoston’s special guest at its November 15th eFestival. The October gathering was a special preview, a chance to learn more about Rachel’s own story, and hear about her experiences teaching during the time of coronavirus.

As part of the conversation, Rachel Korazim shared several slides to highlight her teachings on November 15th, including the image posted here entitled “Poets as Prophets.” Also pictured are Laura Mandel, who adeptly interviewed Korazim; Alan Teperow, former Director and LimmudBoston board chair, and Terri Swartz Russell, the event’s moderator and a LimmudBoston past board chair.

Whether or not you were in attendance, we are pleased to share some resources based on the October 18th conversation. Rachel Korazim has been very gracious in offering to respond to any and all questions, so please feel free to reach her at korazim@gmail.com.

For more information about classes she is offering, or has taught in the past, check out her Facebook page or website.
