Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of links, primarily of the literary variety.

  • Rebecca Klempner presents a true Passover story that epitomizes an instance when reality seems stranger than fiction.
  • Many of us perceive Tay-Sachs disease to be a malady that strikes only Jewish families; Emily Rapp isn’t Jewish, but her son, Ronan, recently succumbed to the disease. Judy Bolton-Fasman writes about Rapp’s new memoir, which opens with Ronan’s diagnosis.
  • Canada-based author Ayelet Tsabari recently wrote a series of guest posts, my favorite of which deals with the challenges she has faced in writing about Israel.
  • Beth Kissileff profiles Shimon Adaf, most recent recipient of Israel’s prestigious Sapir Prize.
  • Latest Quiet Americans news.
  • Shabbat shalom.

    1. Thanks for mentioning my piece on Tablet, and thanks also for the link to the article by Ayelet Tsabari–it really was a gem.

        Your essay is beautiful, Rebecca. And yes–Ayelet’s piece is also excellent. I can’t wait to begin reading her book, hopefully this weekend.
