how to write a psalm

This participatory course aims to help you analyze the Jewish text of Psalms, not simply as a liturgy, but as poetry that you can emulate and revitalize. Taught by Aaron Berkowitz – educator, cofounder of the Jewish Literary Journal; and author of fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction – each class will be split into two sections: first, a dissection of the psalms and second, a writing workshop where you create your own spiritual texts.

Class on Wednesdays from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
October 14, 21, 28, Nov 4, 11
