Ruby Poltorak was born and grew up in Brighton. Her poetry has focused on social activism, on the city of Boston and its neighborhoods, and on family stories that illuminate class and Jewish issues. Three of her poems have been on display at Boston City Hall and four were staged at the Shubert Theater and the Wang's Grand Lobby. She read for the 80th birthday celebration of Dennis Brutus (the "poet of the African National Congress"), and those poems reside in the Brutus Collection at Worcester State College. Ruby teaches and translates Yiddish and is a Yiddish vocalist and Klezmer drummer and is also in the concert ensemble of a 90-member Yiddish Chorus which has performed at the Somerville Theatre and Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center.
