Rambam, Octavia Butler, and Atonement

Aaron Levy Samuels wrote “Letter from Octavia Butler to Rabbi Moses Maimonides” in his book, Yarmulkes & Fitted Caps. (Austin, 2013). Visit his website. For this high holiday season, I added some texts from Octavia Butler and Maimonides here to support some of my favorite passages.

Aaron Levy Samuels also shares these additional resources for the high holidays here (Not Free to Desist site).

Three Black and Jewish Poets

A few recent additions to the poetry pages:

Raphael (Hebro) Fulcher

Rhys Langston Podell

Aaron Levy Samuels

Three very different approaches, poetically and musically. Three very different explorations of Black and Jewish history and culture. And three very different perspectives on being Black and Jewish to entertain and illuminate as Black History Month comes to a close.
