Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

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

  • In a smart blog post (does she write anything that isn’t smart?) sparked by a current Kveller series, Rebecca Klempner asks readers to share book/magazine suggestions for enhancing the “G-d Talk” with kids. (She also offers a few suggestions of her own.)
  • A lovely poem by David Y.B. Kaufmann, “Walking to Shul.”
  • People are talking (well, blogging & tweeting, anyway) about Michael Wex’s new project: an indiegogo campaign to fund “a translation of Joseph Opatoshu’s unbelievably great Yiddish novel, In the Forests of Poland, into an English as compulsively readable as the original.”
  • “The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI) at Brandeis University is looking for a Communications Coordinator. The person supports the communications efforts of the HBI and 614 eZine websites; creating and executing the e-mail campaigns; improving social media visibility; event promotion and outreach; analyzing web traffic and trends; and developing online partnerships.”
  • And on a more personal note: I hope that you’ll take a few moments to read my sister’s first essay/post for The Jewish Week‘s New Normal blog.
  • Shabbat shalom.

    1. I want to say something intelligent now, since you just called me smart. But I’m just too excited! All I want to say is, “Smart lady Erika Dreifus called ME smart! Wahoo!”

      1. Erika Dreifus says:

        Surely, I’m not the first to say so, Rebecca! Shabbat shalom!

        1. But not in public. 😉

          Shabbat shalom!
