Modern Hebrew poets and ancient sages could have rich conversations on their shared themes. They weave on a common loom warped with an ancient language and a legacy of images. Sages and singers have much to say to one another about Abraham’s spiritual journey, the binding of Isaac, about loves and disappointment, about the nature of humans made in the image of God.
Across the centuries, each contributes timely art to a timeless project. When they speak to one another, there is no early or late.
The project of Sicha is to put these creative voices in conversation one with the other, allowing them to agree, to argue, and to combine so as to broaden and enrich those of us who join the discourse, for it is our conversation as well.
