Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

  • One of this week’s highlights was the latest Jewish Book Council “Twitter Book Club”. Up for discussion this time: Deborah E. Lipstadt’s new book, The Eichmann Trial. If you missed the chat, you can read the transcript (the author participated).
  • Another fascinating piece by Adam Kirsch, this time about Israeli writer Lea Goldberg, whose novel And This Is the Light (trans. Barbara Harshav) is available from Toby Press.
  • New podcasts on the Association of Jewish Libraries website!
  • A writing prompt led to this lovely pre-Holy Days post from Frume Sarah.
  • I am going to have to see this film.
  • This week marked the six-month anniversary of my short-story collection, Quiet Americans, which was released last January. Read my “half-birthday” reflections here.
  • Shabbat shalom, everyone.

    1. What a treat to be featured as one of the literary links for this Shabbat. Thanks for including me!

      • Thank you for sharing that beautiful post. As I read it, I thought: “This is a poem.” Or some exquisite hybrid. Really lovely.
