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

  • Beautiful essay on the “spiritual fitness regimen” that Michelle Brafman adopted before her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah.
  • Events for Anglo-Israeli writers near Jerusalem, coordinated by Judy Labensohn.
  • The KlezKanada Poetry Retreat is slated for August 19-25, 2013. Those who are between 16 and 35 years of age may apply for scholarships (deadline: May 1, 2013, so hurry!).
  • On Jewish Ideas Daily, Diane Cole recommends a translation of Israeli author Nava Semel’s Paper Bride.
  • JTA is looking for a Feature Writer.
  • Last, but not least: I’m grateful to the Young Friends Book Club of the Museum of Jewish Heritage here in New York for hosting Quiet Americans and me next month.
  • Shabbat shalom.
