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

  • Over on The New Yorker‘s website, Jonathan Safran Foer discusses “Maybe It Was the Distance,” a piece—drawn from his forthcoming novel—that appears in the magazine’s current, fiction-focused issue.
  • On Christi Craig’s blog: a terrific new Q&A with Jessamyn Hope (plus an opportunity to win a giveaway copy of Safekeeping, Hope’s debut novel).
  • Mazal tov to Israeli author Etgar Keret on being named the latest recipient of the Charles Bronfman Prize.
  • Aleph Beta is looking for a Writer and Editor of Torah Content. “This is a full time job located in Hewlett, NY with the possibility of telecommuting.”
  • And just in time for #Shavuot: a suite of poems on Tablet (and one more on the Forward‘s Sisterhood blog).
  • Shabbat Shalom and Shavuot Tov!

  • “Jewish History,” a memorable selection from Australian-born Abigail Ulman’s new story collection (Hot Little Hands), appeared on Literary Hub this week.
  • And “Imprints,” a poem by Janet Kirchheimer, appeared with Bearings Online.
  • “The Forward seeks an aspiring journalist, opinion writer or blogger for a paid fellowship on its opinion team.”
  • Shabbat shalom!

    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.

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

  • May the memory of Imre Kertész, Holocaust survivor and Nobel literature laureate, be a blessing.
  • “When people ask me, ‘How many Jewish books do we need?’ I have to answer, ‘ALL of them.’ However many books we produce to satisfy a quota is too few. Because not every kid came from The All of a Kind Family.” Thoughts from Laurel Snyder for We Need Diverse Books.
  • A couple of PJ Library jobs are being advertised at the moment: In Phoenix, they’re seeking a director; in the Greater New Haven area, they’re looking for a part-time program manager.
  • I had the pleasure of attending an event celebrating Boris Fishman’s new novel this week; get a good overview of the book in this New Jersey Jewish News article, which also notes the author’s upcoming appearance in Maplewood.
  • And speaking of author events: we’ve added a bunch of new ones to the Fig Tree Books event calendar. Check ’em out!
  • Shabbat shalom, friends.
