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

  • See what you think of this Book Riot list of “100 Must-Read Works of Jewish Fiction” (we at Fig Tree Books are pretty happy with #28).
  • Speaking of Jewish fiction: Avital Chizik-Goldschmidt’s “A Holy Fool,” on Tablet, is well worth your time.
  • A new issue of Lilith magazine is now available.
  • From the world of young-adult lit: “11 YA Authors Discuss the Role of Faith in Their Lives,” on the BNTeen blog (and offer some reading recommendations).
  • And an extra-hearty Mazal Tov for everyone recognized by the American Jewish Press Association’s latest Rockower Awards.
  • Shabbat Shalom.

    Words of the Week

    “He was at heart a writer, and his words, including those in Moment‘s pages, have left an enduring and lasting impression on the world. He will be greatly missed.”

    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.

  • The week brought the November Jewish Book Carnival. Check out the many outstanding offerings.
  • I’ve enjoyed reading 614, an e-zine from the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, these past several years. I’m sorry that the new issue will be its last.
  • On my reading agenda this weekend: new fiction from Mitch Ginsburg, via Tablet.
  • I found a lot of valid points in Andrew Silow-Carroll’s column on Adam Sandler’s “Chanukah Song.”
  • And if you’re job-hunting, J Media Global (Los Angeles) is looking for a Website Editor.
  • Shabbat shalom.

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

    • On the Forward site: Katherine Locke recommends “7 YA and Romance Novels for Jewish Book Month.” (The headline is a little misleading–for instance, the list includes Molly Antopol‘s The UnAmericans. And picture books. But. Still.)
    • Big week at the day job: Fig Tree Books officially published a new edition of Edward Lewis Wallant’s classic novel The Pawnbroker. And Literary Hub published the accompanying new foreword by Dara Horn.
    • If you follow me on Twitter you’ve probably already realized that I’m a devotee of Tablet‘s Unorthodox podcast. This week’s episode includes a “sneak preview” of Tablet‘s “about-to-drop” print magazine (which, of course, I’ve already subscribed to).
    • Quick notes for those of you interested in reading new Jewish poetry on a regular basis. I think I’ve already pointed you to the Haaretz Poem of the Week feature. Also worth checking out: poetry published in Jewish Journal.
    • And though I don’t plan to order a print for my own apartment’s walls, I did chuckle when I saw this cartoon in this week’s New Yorker.

    Shabbat Shalom.

  • On my weekend viewing agenda: a video of Israeli author David Grossman’s recent lecture at Harvard University.
  • Chabad Lubavitch International (Brooklyn) is advertising for a Writer/Editor’s Assistant.
  • Looking for a slew of news, reviews, and interviews from the world of Jewish books? See the latest Jewish Book Carnival, hosted for October by Fig Tree Books.
  • Speaking of Fig Tree Books, it’s not too late to celebrate this week’s launch of Ben Nadler’s The Sea Beach Line.
  • Shabbat shalom.
