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

  • “The Mizrahi poets of Ars Poetica have a lot to say—and the whole country [Israel] is listening.” From The Tower magazine.
  • “Of Song Sheets and Latkes”: a Hanukkah story by Susan Messer, on the Moment website.
  • Hanukkah time is also #Readukkah time, and the Fig Tree Books blog took note on Tuesday.
  • Starting Sunday: the annual meeting of the Association of Jewish Studies. Follow along with the #AJS15 hashtag.
  • And last, but perhaps not least: my dispatch, for Tablet, from a recent celebration of Anzia Yezierska’s classic Bread Givers.
  • Shabbat shalom.
