Every Friday, My Machberet presents a set of Jewish Literary Links to close out the week.

  • A hearty Mazal Tov to Elie Wiesel, who has been named the winner of the 2012 Kenyon Review Award for Literary Achievement.
  • LABA: House of Study, “a non-religious beit midrash for culture-makers located at the 14th Street Y in New York City,” is looking for fellows for the 2012-13 year. Fellows may be “culture-makers from any creative field. Previous fellows have included dancers, actors, visual artists, theater directors, musicians and writers, though we are not limited to these categories.” The theme for the upcoming year is “EAT.” Applications are due by July 30, 2012, and there is no fee to apply.
  • The Yiddish Book Center (Amherst, Mass.) “seeks a Communications & Visitor Services Assistant to supervise docents, coordinate group tours, assist with administration of public programs, maintain social media presence, and assist with outreach.”
  • “For a special issue of Studies in American Jewish Literature, we seek critical and scholarly essays on Jewish American poetry–Jewish poetry written in America, American poetry written by Jews on matters Jewish, or American poetry written in Jewish languages, including Yiddish, Hebrew, and Ladino.” Deadline: January 1, 2013.
  • And in case you missed the mention on my other blog: I’ve gone back to school. Back to Hebrew school, that is.
  • Shabbat shalom!
