JUDEAN DREAMS

Epic in its scope, Judean Dreams is a remarkable poetic journey across the sprawling saga of Israel. Rich, evocative odes pay lyrical tribute to the peoplehood of the Jews, spanning a vast range of religion, mysticism, politics, history, land, culture and romance. From rocky desert vistas to luscious mountain greenery, zealous rebels to discreet lovers, nostalgic memory to reproachful prophecy, the assembled narrative masterfully traverses the extensive chain of generations and the expansive landscape of the heart. Rekindling the age-old tradition from the Jewish poets of medieval Spain, Judean Dreams is a passionate paean which radiates in its intensity the soul of a nation.
