Poems & Bagels: A Reading and Discussion about Love, Loss, Parenthood and Faith

Sunday, October 29, 2023 14 Cheshvan 5784

9:15 AM - 10:30 AM

Let Our Bodies Change the Subject, by Jared Harél, is a poetry collection that dives headlong into the strange, wondrous, sleep-deprived existence of being a parent, and raising Jewish children in twenty-first-century America. In clear, dynamic verse that disarms then strikes, Jared Harél investigates our days through the keyhole of domesticity, through personal lyrics and cultural reckonings.


Please join us for a poetry reading and book discussion with the author, followed by an informal Q&A. Books will be available for purchase, and bagels and coffee will be provided.  PLEASE RSVP BELOW.
