Aaron Roller's Yeshiva High School Poetry Slam

Aaron Roller, previous editor of Mima’amakim, an intercollegiate Jewish poetry journal, with whom the Jewish Art Salon has collaborated on several projects, founded the Yeshiva High School Poetry Slam.

“I know that kids interested in the arts are frequently in the minority in their schools, and could benefit from meeting kids in their interest group from other schools,” Roller said. Working with a teacher at YUHSB and the assistant principal at Rambam Mesivta, his alma mater, Roller organized a test slam at Rambam last year. In 2011-2012, there have been three poetry slams. He and Dena Weiss, a Frisch graduate and former co-editor of “Mima’amakim,” serve as judges.
