NCSY Prayer Slam

It was an exciting night at Lincoln Square Synagogue, which played host to Prayer Slam, the first ever collaboration between Yeshiva Poetry Society and NCSY. The event challenged students to create original prayers and poets showed up from Rambam, Central, HAFTR, SAR, Frisch, SKA and Ma'ayanot. There were also readings by special guest judges Samantha Turk, of the No Tokens literary journal, and Yehoshua November, author of two collections of poetry, including the recently released "Two Worlds Exist."
