Rivers in Paradise

New Poetry Collection Available from Henry Rasof

Henry Rasof has a new .pdf e-collection of all of his Jewish poetry and prose not already published in his two print books “Here I Seek You: Jewish Poems for Shabbat,” “Holy Day, and Everydays” and “Souls in the Garden: Poems About Jewish Spain.”

The new collection, entitled “Rivers in Paradise: Jewish Poetry and Prose,” is divided into six sections: Torah and Midrash, Talmud, Zohar, Imaginessays on Five Medieval Hebrew Poets, A Poetic Miscellany, and A Prosaic Miscellany.

You will find everything here from magic spells to “newly discovered” mystical texts, from new interpretations of famous Talmudic passages to a conversation with the famous medieval Jewish poet Yehudah Halevi, from the outline of a guide to sex in the sukkah to a poem lambasting Queen Isabella. From the serious to the silly, it’s all here.

Clicking the following link or pasting it into your web browser will take you to the book: https://henryrasof.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/Rivers-in-Paradise-1-21-20.pdf.

The author hopes you enjoy the book.
