11. Holiness

Beyond the immediate, physical, encounter with the land, Jews living in the land of Israel have to face the proximity of the holy. This is after all, “The Holy Land”, or rather ארץ הקודש, the Land of the holy. This session explores four very different attitudes or approaches, to life in the midst of holiness; from Rachel’s “From Afar” reconciling herself to the limitations of reality, to Amichai’s smooth flow between the sacred and the mundane in his “Temporary Poem of my Time”.  Yulia Weiner’s poem will introduce a painful clash with holiness while Zelda will offer a glimpse into mysticism, as a way of dealing with disappointing realities.
