The Daily Poetry Movement

Two Selections: Cry Palestine by Nancy Stohlman and Der 11-ter November by Dovid Edelshtat. The second peice comes from the Yiddish Anarchist movement back in the 1800's. All of their pamphlets would start with poetry. I have included a website so you can check out more on the Yiddish movement. I have chosen my two selections in timing with Chanukkah. I have always loved Chanukkah because it is a holiday set around candles. If your going to celebrate tonight light a candle to bring the light. Resist! Refuse! Recycle!
