TBJ is delighted to host this celebration of the launch of Erika Dreifus's new book, Birthright: Poems. In conversation with our clergy, Erika will discuss the mix of midrashic, historical, political, and personal elements that combine in this very Jewish book, which has already been described as "a welcome addition to the modern American poetry canon—narrative, Jewish, feminist, or otherwise." Please join us as Erika—an alumna of our religious school, former Temple Youth Group president, and past speaker—returns to TBJ for a very special event. Refreshments will be served.
