Notes from Around the Web

  • Lilith magazine presents a selection of prize-winning Jewish feminist poetry.
  • A bit late, perhaps, but still very worthwhile: Erika Meitner’s list of new Jewish poetry books for Chanukah (or, at this point, other) gift purposes.
  • David Miller writes about his first Chanukah in Patagonia…and carving a menorah.
  • Adam Kirsch, writing for Tablet, has some issues with a new anthology of writing from the Middle East.
  • In certain ways, I could really identify with the writer of this essay, “How My Love for Israel Uncovers My True Friends.”
  • I hope to have the time to listen to America Abroad Media’s interview with David Grossman sometime very soon!
  • Looking ahead: The next Jewish Book Council Twitter Book Club selection is Elizabeth Rosner’s Blue Nude. Discussion will take place on Wednesday, January 12, 12:30 p.m. (EST).
  • Shabbat shalom!
