Lyric Essay – A Forest of Jews

I’m pleased to share my latest lyric essay A Forest of Jews  in the new literary, arts and culture magazine – Yad Mizrah.

Yad Mizrah is the first literary Mizrahi and Sephardic journal. As they write:

Yad Mizrah, meaning “Eastern Hand,” was founded on an outrageous realization: All modern Jewish literary magazines are typically rooted in and inspired by our Ashkenazi brothers’ and sisters’ literary tradition, history, and culture. No other literary magazines, ones that were rooted in Sephardic and Mizrahi literary heritage and culture, it seemed, existed.

I am proud to be featured in their first issue. Enjoy the wonderful gallery of Mizrahi and Sephardic art, prose, poetry and fiction. And a special shout out to check out my talented cousin Eliyahu Harkham’s very moving, featured art!
