Our event “Shushan Sings” has been postponed. We will update you as soon as we have a rescheduled date.

 

With incidents of anti-semitism on the rise across the globe, this reading brings together diverse voices in celebration of the Jewish experience. March 10th is “Shushan Purim,” when traditionally an extra day of Purim was celebrated in walled cities. Our goal is to break down the walls which too often separate us, to celebrate life and bring people together.

And Hosts: Doritt Carroll, Nancy Naomi Carlson, and Luther Jett

Special Guest: Jeanette E. Dixon, Montgomery County School Board

Sponsored by: Adat Shalom, The Writer’s Center, and the D.C. Area Literary Translators Network
