Soul Slam: Jewish Expression and Spoken Word

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Since the Temple era, poetry has been a central facet of our tradition. Spoken word, which synthesizes poetry and performance, is akin to prayer in form, and often in content. Both the worshiper and the poet seek connection: to self, community, and even a higher consciousness. This session explores the intersection of spoken word and prayer as part of a growing, global oral tradition. Share or simply enjoy the "word paintings" of others, each with a unique rhythm and style all their own.
