Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish literary news from around the Web.

  • First up: this month’s Jewish Book Carnival, hosted by Needle in the Bookstacks, a blog from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) librarians.
  • Many short-story treats this week, starting with this gem from The New Yorker: a 1970 story by Isaac Bashevis Singer (“Job”), plus notes about the translation.
  • A brand-new issue of is now available for our reading pleasure.
  • I read it first in the print magazine, but it looks as though Moment has made Edith Pearlman’s short story, “The Kargman Affliction,” available online, too.
  • Adam Kirsch writes about Amoz Oz’s reissued story collection, Where the Jackals Howl (trans. Nicholas De Lange).
  • Shabbat shalom.
