הִנֵּֽנִי (Hineni)
הִנֵּֽנִי (Hineni)

The Hebrew words of “Here I am'' speaks to the responsibility of being present. Present for people, our earth and the connection we are losing as time passes. I invite you to reflect on the work we can do to reconnect. Where are you? Hineni.

In 1948 two things happened in Historic Palestine: a new state was carved out of Palestine, and a slow creeping genocide was set in motion. 531+ villages and municipalities were depopulated and most were destroyed with the creation of Israel. Naming is often part of the ritual of mourning as well as an attempt to give to the dead their day in history.

I list villages here to not only remember but also to put them back onto the map. In an attempt to get at the feeling of erasure, all the elements I have chosen to use are translucent, visible but difficult to get a read on; there, but begging you to make the effort to see.

Intergenerational Wounds
Intergenerational Wounds

Abstract: The poem "Intergenerational Wounds" is about how unhealed trauma begets more violence, and that it is only ever an explanation, never an excuse. Content note: Reference to but no detailed descriptions of violence, genocide, racism.

If not for the sake of your heart
If not for the sake of your heart

Abstract: The world watched with horror as Israel rained bombs on Gaza in May 2021, massacring already traumatized families who live trapped in an open-air prison. For me - like many Jews who grew up in Zionist spaces - my horror was compounded as I read social media posts from friends, families, and elders in my home community, self-professed progressive Jews now parroting IDF talking points to justify the bombings.

Abstract: This poem is addressed to the embodied knowledge that must be suppressed in the moment when one chooses to deny reality. (2/2)

Abstract: I've always enjoyed rhyming and creating poems for friends and family and I've always enjoyed talking! A few years ago I was introduced to 'spoken word' by my students and am now enjoying the delightful challenges of combined rhyming and ranting!

Milkweed Patch

This photo is of a portion of "Milkweed Patch," the 1999 installation artwork that initially brought me to the attention of members of Camp Naivelt, who invited me to show slides of it at Camp. Remember slides? My closet is jammed with art now so I mostly write poetry and do a bit of photography.

Visiting Risie in Covid Times
Visiting Risie in Covid Times

Feeling the weight of insufficient connection during these Covid times, I have created a four minute first-person digital story that reconnects me to my long dead grandmother. I've used bits and pieces of Chagall's art to illustrate my story.

This piece is called Covid Gone. Even though I had lots of extra time during the Pandemic to paint, I missed working with the Addus Art Club. I can't wait to go back to my program and have Covid Gone.
