I was a prolific writer in my teen years, jotting down poems on napkins, scrap paper, or even the back of my dad’s old business cards. At some point, I acquired mini notebooks that I carried everywhere (as evidenced by their current very beaten-up state) and eventually even began keeping a regular hard-cover, bound journal. All of these as well as my school notebooks and assignments were carefully tucked away in my childhood bedroom after college when I moved out of my parents’ house and across the country. On recent trips to visit my parents, I rediscovered this treasure trove that captures my teenage thoughts and feelings. With only some minor editing, I found that this collection resonates both with my adult self and with my own teenage children.
The author of this collection of poetry, Rabbi Suzanne Brody, is the Director of Education and Youth Programming at Temple Beth-El in Ithaca, NY. Suzanne is a graduate of Wellesley College, has a PhD in neuroscience, and received rabbinic ordination from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies in Los Angeles, CA in 2012.
Throughout all of the stages in her life’s journey, Rabbi Brody’s passion for innovating new ways to share a love of learning about and doing Judaism has found outlets in creating dynamic programming for Jews of all ages. She has worked in both formal and informal educational settings and has designed and taught numerous adult education courses with an emphasis on the stories of infertility found in the Jewish tradition and the treasures she finds in the Talmud.
Suzanne is the author of four previous books of poetry: “Dancing in the White Spaces”; “Etz Chayim She: Modern Poems Grown from Ancient Texts,”; “Mermaid Tears”; “Lunch with Rav Dimi” and numerous scholarly publications.
