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

  • Mitch Ginsburg profiles Dalia Betolin-Sherman on the occasion of the publication of the Ethiopian-born Israeli writer’s first story in English.
  • Mazal tov to the winner and honorable mentions for this year’s ALA/Sophie Brody Medal for outstanding achievement in Jewish literature.
  • On the Fig Tree Books website: a fresh appraisal of Isaac Bashevis Singer’s Shosha.
  • Some of the most moving moments of this past week for me: watching “Defiant Requiem,” a documentary “which illuminates the extraordinary, untold story of the brave acts of resistance by the Jewish prisoners at Terezín.” Let’s just say that although I’ve always loved Verdi’s Requiem, I’ll never listen to it in quite the same way again.
  • “The Jewish Student Press Service is looking to hire a recent or soon-to-be college graduate for the full-time position of editor-in-chief of the national Jewish student magazine New Voices. The new editor would simultaneously serve as executive director of the Jewish Student Press Service.”
  • Shabbat shalom.

  • A review of Meyer Levin’s literary thriller Compulsion–from October 1956.
