Welcome to Kerem

Kerem was an independent, inter-denominational publication, published on an occasional basis from 1992 through 2014 to explore Jewish spiritual issues. Contents of the 14 issues include text study, divrei Torah, midrash, liturgy, essays, poetry, short stories, interviews, photography, and more. Kerem embodied an egalitarian and pluralistic philosophy, and aimed to combine the best of modern thinking and a serious engagement with Jewish tradition.

Kerem is:

  • A high caliber publication combining a serious engagement with Jewish tradition and the best of modern Jewish renewal…
  • A place for exchanging new prayers, new translations, midrash, divrei Torah, new ceremonies and lifecycle rituals, new interpretations of traditional texts, reflections on Jewish life and identity in our time…
  • A place to turn to for materials that reflect the values of egalitarianism, tolerance, and pluralism, and that build these values into religious language and rituals…

A Fond Farewell

Kerem ceased publication in fall 2014. We thank our readers, writers, and donors for their support and contributions all these years. We hope to put most of the 14 issues of Kerem online. If you wrote for Kerem, please contact us (langner@erols.com) to give permission to post your contribution.
