Jewish Poetry: from David to Dylan A Tribute to Jack Needle

Join us as we celebrate Jewish poetry & poets. This program was the brainchild of our dear member, and former chair of the CBI Cultural Programming committee, Professor Jack Needle, who passed away July 31, 2019. Jack taught History at Red Bank Regional High School for 16 years and at Brookdale Community College for 34 years, so was well known in our community. He was also one of the founders of the Center for Holocaust Studies at Brookdale, now known as the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Education (CHHANGE).

Some of Jack’s friends and loved ones will read poetry or perform songs by famous Jewish poets as a loving tribute to our dear friend.

This program is open to the public and we especially hope those who knew Jack will attend.
Refreshments will be served.


This program, sponsored by CBI’s Cultural Programming Committee, is free and open to all.

We ask that you please RSVP in advance so we can plan for food and seating. RSVP to emilie.kovit-meyer@cbirumson.org
