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

  • Early in the week, I was pleased to read a new article by my friend Judy Bolton-Fasman on “recent ex-Hasid memoirs.”
  • At the same time, later in the week, I appreciated Andrew Silow-Caroll’s nuanced thoughts about the collective interest in this sort of writing by ex-Orthodox Jews.
  • The Washington DCJCC is looking for a Temporary Jewish Literature Festival Manager.
  • Touching story about a Holocaust Survivors Memoir Writing Workshop, via jweekly.
  • Finally, something I wrote for the Fig Tree Books blog this week.
  • Shabbat Shalom.

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

  • Over on Tablet, Adam Kirsch examines “where Jewish writers are finding [publishing] homes these days, and why.”
  • Speaking of Tablet: they’re looking for two paid, part-time fall editorial interns. (Don’t forget: Fig Tree Books is offering a paid internship as well.)
  • Spotlighting debut novels by Michelle Brafman and Diana Bletter, The Jewish Week‘s Sandee Brawarsky declares this to be “the summer of the chevra kadisha novel.”
  • I’ve followed poet Edward Hirsch’s work for many years; I read his book-length elegy for his son when it was published last year. So I appreciated this profile of Hirsch—and Gabriel—in the current issue of Moment magazine.
  • Finally, in the words of JTA/Suzanne Pollak, “In Jennifer Weiner’s hit novels, it’s a (Jewish) woman’s world.” (But many of you knew that already!)
  • Shabbat shalom.

  • Hosted by Deborah Kalb, the latest Jewish Book Carnival was posted this week.
  • Quite an interesting piece by Beena Kamlani on editing Saul Bellow’s last novel.
  • As editor, I’m always pleased to share the latest issue of the Fig Tree Books newsletter. (Check out the giveaways now being offered!)
  • Unless you’ve been living under a rock of some kind, you’ve likely been reading and hearing a lot about Harper Lee this week. Notable in the discourse: Alexandra Levine’s piece on “Harper Lee’s Jewish Lessons,” for The Forward.
  • And the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles is advertising for a PJ Library Program Assistant.
  • Shabbat shalom.
