KOREH/קרא is a series of events featuring Or Shalom writers and friends reading in the Or Shalom sanctuary. For this edition of Koreh we are delighted to be collaborating with the Peretz Centre for Secular Jewish Culture.
Mame Loshn, which means mother tongues, will feature Faith Jones, Seymour Levitan, Rachel Mines, and Helen Mintz, four Yiddish translators who will be presenting a range of Yiddish works from Ashkenazi communities, in English translation. The works they have translated range from fiction to poetry to erotica. Amal Rana will be presenting a work-in-progress exploring her relationship to her white Jewish grandmother and growing up in a mixed faith, mixed raced family. It’s a mix of memoir and poetry — a work of poetic memoir.
Come enjoy these writers in the sanctuary of Or Shalom.
