  • “The poems in ‘Birthright’…have a profoundly Jewish sensibility. They focus on ancestors immigrating from Germany to escape persecution in the years preceding the Holocaust, prayer and ritual, biblical characters, and Israel. They are deeply personal, critical and wry, and aggressively political.” Ahead of the November launch, New Jersey Jewish News‘s Johanna Ginsberg profiles the book and its author.
  • The Jewish Week’s Fall Arts Guide Book List introduces Birthright to readers, noting that the book “includes midrash-like reflections on traditional texts, riffs on contemporary events and personal stories about family and faith, anchored in history.”
  • “If you’re someone who appreciates fresh poetry with overtly Jewish themes, this is the collection for you.” So writes Alma‘s Emily Burack in a preview of “Favorite Books for Fall.”
