Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
Two poems that caught my attention this week: Rachel Chabin’s “Equilibrium” and Marcela Sulak’s “Cell.”
“The Jewish Theological Seminary of America last week announced the appointment of Rabbi Bronwen Mullin as its rabbinic artist in residence.” (via The Jewish Week)
I am so tired of finding news stories like this one: “Artists ask Lincoln Center to Boycott Play Supported by Israeli Government.”
Envious of the teenagers lucky enough to study “Great Jewish Books” at the Yiddish Book Center each summer? I sure am. But I’ll take what I can get—so I’m happy that the Center has given all of us a taste of the experience with this reading list.
Last chance! 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.
