Poet’s Quest for Peace

June 18, 2016, 12:00 AM EDT

Organised by the LJS Education Committee, this ambitious event brings together core values of interfaith work, social action, culture and education. How better to spend Shabbat than in pursuit of a better grasp of the complexities of the shared quest for peace?
Internationally renowned poets including Choman Hardi from Kurdistan, Palestinian-American Fady Joudah, exiled Iranian Ziba Karbassi and Hungarian-born George Szirtes – specially chosen for their cultural diversity and for the relevance, appeal and quality of their poems – will move, disturb and inspire. Discussions on “what contribution can poetry make to peace processes?” and “peace is not a comfort zone, is poetry?” will be invigorating and provocative.
