A Joyous Evening and Book Launch for “This Joyous Soul: A New Voice for Ancient Yearnings” by Alden Solovy.
Join us for the Israel launch and celebration for poet/liturgist and Pardes student Alden Solovy and his newest book from CCAR Press, “This Joyous Soul: A New Voice for Ancient Yearnings,” featuring readings from the book and a broad-ranging discussion between Alden and Pardes President Leon Morris on creative liturgy, text study and prayer.
We’ll be welcomed by Rabbi Hara Person, incoming CEO of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, who worked with Alden to create two volumes of new liturgy. Both “This Joyous Soul: A New Voice for Ancient Yearnings” and “This Grateful Heart: Psalms and Prayers for a New Day” will be available for purchase by cash only.
Here is Alden’s most recent ELITalk: https://elitalks.org/falling-love-prayer and other opportunities to see him below.
