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

  • It’s always an occasion when a new issue of The Ilanot Review becomes available. The Winter 2013 issue is now online. Its theme: “Foreign Bodies.”
  • Another accolade for Francesca Segal’s The Innocents: the National Jewish Book Award for Fiction. (Read the awards press release and my earlier impressions of the book.)
  • The January 2013 Jewish Book Carnival went live this week, hosted by People of the Books.
  • Novelist Ilan Mochari has some advice for Philip Roth’s biographer. In related news, registration for the upcoming Roth@80 conference is now open.
  • Finally: This is a special week for my story collection, Quiet Americans. Read all about it.
  • Shabbat shalom!
