OCU: Jewish poet headlines Neustadt lectures


Merle Feld
On Feb. 15, poet, playwright, activist, and educator Merle Feld will be guest presenter at the 35th Annual Neustadt Lectures for Oklahoma City University.
Feld is the founding director of the Albin Rabbinic Writing Institute, where she guides rabbis and students from all denominations in developing their spiritual lives and serving as effective spiritual leaders.
She is the author of two books — “Finding Words” (2011) and “Spiritual Life: Exploring the Heart of Jewish Tradition” (2007) — and several plays, including the award-winning “The Gates are Closing.”
As a peace activist and scholar-in-residence, Feld has facilitated Israeli-Palestinian dialogue in the West Bank, supported Jewish women activists in the former Soviet Union, and taken her work into hundreds of synagogues and universities from Brooklyn to Beijing.
Her three lectures are scheduled for Thursday (Feb. 15) — at 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. in Bishop Smith Chapel at OCU and at 7 p.m. at Temple B’nai Israel, 4901 NW Pennsylvania Ave., Oklahoma City.
All lectures are free and open to the public.
