First proclaimed by President George W. Bush in 2006, May is known for its commemoration of Jewish American Heritage. Since then, presidents have issued a proclamation each year commemorating the month. Read Joe Biden’s 2022 Proclamation here.
As we commemorate this month, I often reflect on my first experiences with Jewish culture and traditions through my education at Florida State University. While pursuing a minor in Religion, I was lucky enough to take a course titled “Jewish Tradition” which provided me an introduction to the history and culture of Judaism. Dr. Kavka soon became one of my favorite professors that semester and while I loved everything I learned, “Tikkun Olam” is one concept that I appreciated the most and has stuck with me through the years.Continue reading Reflections on “Tikkun Olam”

The Southeast Review is excited to kick off the new school year with our confessions-themed open mic fundraiser + Issue 36.2 launch, hosted by the one and only David Kirby! Join us on Tuesday, September 4th at The Bark (507 All Saints St). Doors open at 7 pm. Read your most embarrassing elementary / middle school / high school / undergrad diary entries, sing a song, read a poem, perform a dramatic monologue—the stage is all yours. After all, what’s more literary or poetic than a confession?
We will also have a photobooth (created by Art Editor, Kelly Butler; pictures taken by Kenny Johnson), a baked goods table (organized by Poetry Editor, Jayme Ringleb), a typewriter “instant poem” station (thank you, Cocoa Williams), and a silent auction table with donations from Barbara Hamby (baskets of her famous jams), Diane Roberts (a jar of her famous Tupelo Honey), Nonfiction Editor, Laurel Lathrop (short story consultation). and gift cards and merchandise from local businesses: Township, Madison Social, Lake Tribe Brewing Company, Fifth and Thomas, Painting with a Twist, The Bookshelf, Skate World, Sangha Press, SoDOUGH, Tally Cat Cafe, Quarter Moon Imports, Garnet and Gold, Taco Bout It, Sneaux Balls, Fat Cat Cafe, and Lucilla. Many thanks to all our donors and volunteers! Proceeds will go towards The Southeast Review printing costs.
Finally, let’s celebrate the launch of Issue 36.2! The Southeast Review has an exciting year ahead, especially as we continue to publish both emerging and established writers in both print issues and our new online companion, SER TWO (“This Week Online”), a projected initiated and executed by our wonderful Assistant Editor, Zach Linge. As Editor, I’m really looking forward to showcasing this beautiful mix of voices and continue to grow our online space. Things just keep getting better and better, so come celebrate with us at The Bark on Tuesday, September 4th. We’ll have our new issue on display (and for sale) during our event!
