Nov. 6, 2022: Jewish Book Council Writers' Conference
A panel with Yetzirah’s treasurer Rick Chess, Hila Ratzabi of Ritualwell,
& David Ebenbach of Georgetown’s Center for Jewish Civilization
2022 Jewish Book Council Writers’ Conference Panel:
Not for myself alone: Creating & Sustaining Jewish Literary Communities
In this fraught time, what do we need in the way of community? What can we share to encourage and inspire each other? Despite a strong presence in the literary world, forums for contact and support among American Jewish writers are limited. David Ebenbach of the Center for Jewish Civilization at Georgetown; Hila Ratzabi of Ritualwell.org, an online community devoted to ritual, poetry, and liturgy; and Rick Chess, treasure of Yetzirah, will explore how to respond to the opportunities and challenges of this moment, with a chance for audience input.
