Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.

  • There are some great job opportunities advertised right now with 70 Faces Media.
  • Plus, a paid internship with Tablet.
  • Check out this new interview on Luna Luna with Ben Nadler, on Jewish literature and The Sea Beach Line.
  • One of this week’s searing reads: Elizabeth Edelglass’s “Abraham and Isaac,” fiction in New Haven Review.
  • Crowdsourcing here: I have a new poem that I’m trying to place (preferably with a paying venue) that I believe would be ideal for Yom HaAtzmaut (May 11-12 this year). Any ideas/contacts? The poem runs just over 200 words and just over 30 lines. Thanks in advance for your help!
  • Shabbat shalom, everyone.

    Words of the Week

    “It has seemed to me that a vast double standard regarding what constitutes prejudice exists on American college campuses. There is hypersensitivity to prejudice against most minority groups but what might be called hyper-insensitivity to anti-Semitism.”
