The House of Washing Hands 

Steven Sher

"The sound of running water
fills our house, an ocean's
timeless rise and fall..."

     Set in the Pacific Northwest, where he lived for 20 years, the poems are explorations of Jewish ritual and faith, family and community, finding the holy in the mundane.

The poems appear in three sections, each one covering roughly a ten-year period beginning in 1975. Richly textured word tapestries infused with emotional invocations, Sher’s poems seek to transcend the everyday into the spiritual realm.
