Jake Marmer

Jake Marmer is a poet, performer and educator. His first record, Hermeneutic Stomp (Blue Thread Music, 2013), featuring jazz-klez luminaries Frank London, Greg Wall, Eyal Maoz, and Uri Sharlin, brings together diverse poetic traditions, jazz and klezmer. It was hailed as a “soulful narrative line in counterpoint to … language-drunk abstractions” (The Jewish Week) and a “thought provoking debut” (All About Jazz). His poetry collection, Jazz Talmud, was published by Sheep Meadow Press in 2012. Currently a doctoral candidate at the CUNY Graduate Center, he teaches at Kehillah Jewish High School in Palo Alto. Jake frequently contributes to the Forward and Tablet magazine, and is a cofounder of North America’s first Jewish poetry retreat at the KlezKanada festival.
