Notes from Around the Web: Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

  • The Jewish Book Council wants your recipes!
  • Job alert: the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) is looking for a Web Editor (the job is in New York). “The ideal candidate will have extensive journalistic experience and keen editorial judgment, familiarity with the broad range of Jewish communal issues, web editing experience, social media savvy, the ability to work quickly and juggle multiple deadlines, creative talent and the flexibility to be a team player and fill in with other editorial duties when necessary.
  • This week I continued to add links on my tribute page for Czech Jewish writer Arnost Lustig (1926-2011)
  • Here’s one way to share the title of any Jewish book you may be reading: Join in the #FridayReads fun on Twitter each Friday. Simply log in, post the title, and be sure to include the #FridayReads hashtag.
  • Speaking of Twitter, I am honored that the Jewish Book Council has chosen my story collection, Quiet Americans, as April’s Twitter Book Club title. Please join the discussion on April 12!
  • Shabbat shalom and chag Purim!
