Spotlighting a variety of local writers – many from Next@19th’s CHAIku series and the Miami Poetry Collective – a special reading of Allen Ginsberg’s Kaddish will be presented at the Jewish Museum of Florida in celebration of National Poetry Month. Ginsberg (1926-1997), the visionary poet and founding father of the Beat generation, inspired the American counterculture of the second half of the 20th century with groundbreaking poems such as Howl and Kaddish. He used poetry for both personal and collective expression in his fight for a more interesting and open society.

Max Miller: Final Mourner’s Kaddish – 333 Days in Paintings
On view until May 13, 2012
Jewish Museum of Florida
301 Washington Avenue
Miami Beach
Max Miller: Final Mourner’s Kaddish – 333 Days in Painting is a vivid, moving and cathartic account of the artist’s year spent saying Kaddish (the Jewish prayer of mourning) for his father. A collection of 50 vibrant watercolors depict the synagogues Miller visited in New York, Vermont, Ohio and Florida – including 18 synagogues in South Florida – with commentary on his thoughts and experience. Miller’s show originated at the Yeshiva University Museum in New York City and is sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts.
