A Class Using the Poetry from Words Have Wings

Hi Everyone,

I don't really use this platform to advertise the poetry I write, but I will use this short post as a quick advertisement.

Rabbi Jack Riemer of B'nai Torah Congregation of Boca Raton, Florida, will begin to teach a six week session on "Poems that he loves" beginning

this coming Wednesday, November 9th. This six week course is available online. Each week Rabbi Riemer will be teaching from a poem that I have authored over the past few years. I am excited to attend the class and learn from Rabbi Riemer. I know that he will do the poems justice.

If you would like to attend the class remotely, here is the listing for the class. I will be there learning with you and hope to do a reading of the poems at each of the classes.

A few other short bits of housekeeping.

1. I just printed up 50 more copies of Words Have Wings. I would like them to be in book stores and synagogue libraries. If anyone would like to help introduce Words Have Wings to a book store near you or your synagogue, I would appreciate the help. Thank you!

2. I am working on compiling this past year's poems into a new volume.

I am, of course, uncertain whether it will be published or not, but I can always hope!

I am trying to brainstorm a title for the next book of poetry. Do you have any suggestions? Please add them below or email me at

3. As winter approaches, I would like to resume postings that you write on

hobbies or jobs that you do that have meaning and put a smile on your face. If you would like to write, please contact me.

That's it for now. Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom.
