Yetzirah Reading Series
Held online the second Sunday of each month, 5-6:30 p.m. ET, our annual reading series celebrates the publication of recently released collections and anthologies, promoting the work of both emerging and established Jewish poets.
Each reading will take its theme from the Jewish calendar, with topics including self-reflection, wildness, and liberation.
Yetzirah also partners with Jewish organizations to amplify the diversity of voices in contemporary Jewish poetry, translation, and scholarship.
