What is the relationship between Judaism and/or Jewish culture and your poetry?

I think parts of it are well-explained in the introduction to “Ladder” written by Arielle Angel and in my essay on The Hamsa Flag Project, originally published by PROTOCOLS in 2016, as well as throughout my book of poetry, A Flag of No Nation.
