About the Poets and Moderator

Yehoshua November earned a BA at Binghamton University and an MFA at the University of Pittsburgh. As his commitment to his Orthodox Jewish faith deepened, November stopped writing poetry and enrolled in yeshiva, until, with his rabbis’ encouragement, he began to write again after two years’ silence. He is the author of the poetry collections Two Worlds Exist (2016) and God’s Optimism (2010), which won the Main Street Rag Poetry Book Award and was a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize, the Autumn House Poetry Prize, and the Tampa Review Prize for Poetry.

Hillel Broder earned a BA at Yeshiva University, an MA in English at Queens College, CUNY, and a PhD in English at The Graduate Center, CUNY. He teaches at SAR High School, and has taught at Fordham University and Yeshiva University High School for Boys. His poetry has been published in Typehouse Literary Magazine, Modern Poetry Quarterly Review, Front Porch Review, and other magazines and journals. He is a co-founder of the Yeshiva Poetry Society, a high school league of performance poets.

Rabbi Josh Rosenfeld is currently the assistant rabbi at Lincoln Square Synagogue, and a teacher of Judaics at SAR High School.

Location: Seforim Sale; Sky Cafe (12th floor), Belfer Hall, Yeshiva College, Yeshiva University
