Noted expert on Israeli poetry and Hartman scholar Rachel Korazim is teaching online during this time when we all need to stay at home and at a distance.

Tuesdays beginning October 13 – “The Great Hebrew Poets”
Twelve of the greatest Hebrew poets, who laid the foundations and gave us our language of metaphors, sounds and images. All the way from Bialik to Hanoch Levin, including Emil Habibi the Arab Israeli writer and Avraham Sutzkever the great Yiddish poet.


Thursdays beginning October 15 – “Contemporary Voices”
Fifteen of the best Israeli poets who are with us, alive and creating. These are the voices of the intimate Israeli discourse of our times. Authentic poetry reflecting the complexity of Israeli society: Mizrachi, Palestinian, Orthodox and more.
