This month’s Novel Midrash class will feature modern poems with Biblical themes.  How do modern poems use Biblical stories and characters? Why do they choose to do so? What changes from the TaNaKH in the modern poems? Whether you have been to all of the other classes, some of them or none of them, come and enjoy.

Sneak preview for May’s class — By popular request, I am repeating the session on The Secret Book of Kings by Yochai Brandes. You have another chance to read it and come and discuss it.  By some opinions, this is the best of all the books we have read together this year.
