Yetzirah Featured Poet: Jess Greenbaum

As Passover draws near and you might be considering which Haggadah could make this year’s seder especially poetic and powerful, this week we feature poet Jess Greenbaum, co-editor of MISHKAN HASEDER: A PASSOVER HAGGADAH (CCAR Press, 2021).

“If you thought there was no new lens that might expand the aperture of our liberation story, think again,” writes Abigail Pogrebin, author of MY JEWISH YEAR: 18 HOLIDAYS, ONE WONDERING JEW. “Person, Greenbaum and Kahn have collaborated to create a masterful Haggadah for this moment and for all time. A weaving of liturgy, poetry, and artistry, this vibrant volume feels not only refreshing but also refocusing– on why the narrative matters, how it speaks to us, how it lives in us, and what it asks of us. I’m ordering thirty-five copies for my family seder.”
