Old and New Heresies: A Double Book-Launch

September 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm CDT

Old and New Heresies: A Double Book-Launch with Rodger Kamenetz, Jay Michaelson, and Basya Schechter
Tue, Sep 13
at Congregation Beth Elohim
274 Garfield Place
Brooklyn, NY

Join us for an evening of music, conversation, and performance celebrating two new books: the new, expanded edition of Rodger Kamenetz’s “The Missing Jew:Poems 1976-2022″ and the latest book by Jay Michaelson, “The Heresy of Jacob Frank: From Jewish Messianism to Esoteric Myth.”

These two new volumes, one of poetry and one of scholarship, cover related territories of spirituality and heresy, eros and God, dreams and doubt.

Rodger and Jay will be joined by Basya Schechter, performing original material as well as heretical-messianic hymns from the Sabbatean movement and musical settings to Rodger’s poems.

Please register here for this live event.

You can buy THE MISSING JEW: POEMS 1976-2022 direct from the publisher.
Or from AMAZON

  1. Trying to move heaven and earth — or a little furniture in each — to join you and Jay in Brooklyn, and congrats on the new collected poems. Also, I’d like to be in touch via email and I can’t seem to find yours. If you’d be good enough to send yours to me, here: allan.appel@gmail.com
    And break a leg!
