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
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.
