The Last Commandment – Poems by Alan Toltzis
Using elegant, vivid, and carefully crafted language, The Last Commandment examines the nature of love, family, the creative process, and the connection between nature and ourselves. The 54 poems, each inspired by the weekly Torah portion, are meditations, insights, personal recollections, and stem from a deep reading of original Biblical texts and commentaries. Deeply nuanced, these poems can be appreciated or their lyricism, spirituality, and their fresh outlook on our world and beyond.
