Facing the Other with Dr. Barbara Mann

Part of Our Series “The ‘Other’ in Jewish Text and Tradition”

March 1, 2021, 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET

This session is generously sponsored by Dr. Carmen Arick in loving memory of Joyce Arick; and by Marian Rothenberg, in memory of her husband Frank Rothenberg (z”l) who admired JTS from his teenage years onward.

Lyric poetry, with its unique voice and vivid imagery, offers a brief but intense opportunity to enter into the intimate space of another. Through texts by canonical Israeli authors (Dan Pagis, Yehuda Amichai, and Dalia Ravikovitch), we will trace a series of poetic encounters between Self and Other: survivor and perpetrator; mother and child; victim and hero; Jew and Palestinian.
