From the twelfth-century Spanish Jewish writer, philosopher, and physician Yehuda Halevi to the contemporary members of Israel’s Ars Poetica movement, poets have long expressed the deepest thoughts and feelings of Mizrahim, or Jews of the Middle East and North Africa.
Hear ancient and modern poems, translated from Arabic, Hebrew, Ladino, and French, in an evening organized by JIMENA: Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa. The works demonstrate the influence of Mizrahi and Sephardic poetry on Jewish spirituality and thinking. The readers will be Mizrahi and Sephardic young adult members of the JIMENA community.
