The artists’ beit midrash at Congregation Beth Sholom in Teaneck offers “The Word, The Sound, The Shape: Poetry in the Modern and Medieval Jewish World.”

The season of study, dedicated to the memory of Jay Seth Greenspan, a sofer and a good friend of the artists’ beit midrash, runs for eight sessions, from Sunday, February 4, to Sunday, May 6, from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

The program, led by Harriet Finck, who has facilitated and taught in the program since it began, is open to artists working in all media and skill levels who wish to explore Jewish and Hebrew poetry while creating visual, musical, and written midrashim based upon class study.
