This session uses havruta-style study, a traditional Jewish mode of paired learning, to explore a tradition of homoerotic Jewish poetry stretching from the Middle Ages until the present. Using poems written in Hebrew, Yiddish, Arabic, Persian, Dutch, Russian, and English, participants in this session will encounter a diversity of voices that articulate the joys and challenges of love in song and word.
