#JArtsLiberty: Passover Poetry

Poem Without An End
By Yehuda Amichai

Inside the brand-new museum
there’s an old synagogue.
Inside the synagogue
is me.
Inside me
my heart.
Inside my heart
a museum.
Inside the museum
a synagogue,
inside it
me,
inside me
my heart,
inside my heart
a museum

 

Inspired by Passover and National Poetry Month, JArts presents a month-long, freedom-themed public art poetry project. Chosen by a jury of acclaimed poets and teachers, the project is built around the freedom-themed poem, Poem Without An End by Yehuda Amichai. Look for the #JArtsLiberty MBTA posters on the Green and Red lines, share your photos and reflections on social media, and learn more about the poem and Yehuda Amichai at jartsboston.org or a community workshop.

If you would like copies of the project toolkit, please fill out this form.

About Yehuda Amichai

Widely considered Israel’s most important modern poet, Yehuda Amichai was born in Wurzburg, Germany, in 1924, emigrated with his family to Palestine in 1936, and died in Israel in 2000. His poetry has been translated into 29 different languages, which is why it’s been said that he is the most widely translated Hebrew poet since King David.
