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

  • Tablet has published a troubling, but exceedingly well-written, excerpt from Tova Reich’s next novel as its latest fiction feature.
  • I’d been meaning to get a copy of David Ebenbach’s The Artist’s Torah; this piece in New Jersey Jewish News, which I ran across this week, made me go ahead and order it (finally!).
  • The Daniel Pearl Journalism Initiative, coordinated by Moment magazine, is open for applications.
  • This week brought the Jerusalem International Book Fair.
  • Get to know the authors and illustrators behind the books that have received recognition from this year’s Sydney Taylor Book Awards.
  • Shabbat shalom!
