Another Desert 
Jewish Poetry of New Mexico
edited by Joan Logghe
and Miriam Sagan

ISBN 0-9644196-9-6






This collection blends the history, celebrations, and reconciliation of ancient Jewish traditions with life in New Mexico. The circle of the Jewish year is saturated by the New Mexico experience as tashlich is performed in a precious desert river, and Passover coincides with Good Friday pilgrims making a holy journey to the Santuario de Chimayo. At root these are poems of faith—in the beauty of the desert, in the survival of tradition and memory, and ultimately in the ability of language to contain and express experience. 

Includes work by Marjorie Agosin, Robin Becker, Yehudis Fishman, Gene Frumkin, Natalie Goldberg, Judyth Hill, Joan Logghe, Consuelo Luz, Carol Moldow, Judith Rafaela, Miriam Sagan, Foreword by Stan Hordes, notes that the book is “moving and profound... an integral part of our Jewish heritage."

Read other poems from the book for Hanukkah.
