Join us for a screening and discussion of the 25-minute film “Hill Country,” written by Tracy K. Smith, a contemplative poem that explores connections between the divine, the natural world, and the human experience. It invites readers to reflect on the spiritual qualities of nature and the potential for witnessing the “holy” participating in ordinary moments of life.

In this episode, Rabbi Claudia Kreiman and Rabbi Tiferet Berenbaum reflect on the meaning of Psalm 121 and its connection to this poem. “Poetry in America” is an educational initiative and public television show that brings poetry into classrooms and living rooms around the world. Founded by Harvard Professor Emerita Elisa New, this event is a platform for people of all and no faith traditions to connect and exchange insights with others who share their interests in faith, creativity, and the sacred qualities of the natural world.
