Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
For your weekend listening: a Tikvah podcast episode featuring Liel Leibovitz on the Jewish poetry of Leonard Cohen.
New issue alert! Say hello to the summer 2017 edition of Lilith magazine.
The Jewish Review of Books also has a new issue out (fyi—some content is paywalled). Included with a newsletter alert about the new issue: “P.S. We’re looking for a great web editor to help us revamp and ramp up our website. Cover letter, resume, and (brief) writing samples should be sent to jobs(at)jewishreveiewofbooks(dot)com.”
The Whole Megillah has announced “the debut of Holocaustkidlit.com, a new website featuring an online searchable database of children’s Holocaust literature published in the United States and Canada from 2002 forward (excluding self-published and educational titles).” Details here.
And one concluding note: We’ll be hosting the July Jewish Book Carnival right here on the My Machberet blog. For background on the project and instructions if you’d like to contribute a #JewLit-focused link (not a self-promotional one, if you please!), do check the Carnival HQ. Deadline: July 10.
