Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
Library Journal has published a nice article with some Jewish literature suggestions for librarians. Titles past and present are included.
“There are millions of stories that need to be told – each one unique and heartbreaking and filled with truths and teachings.” So says author Deb Levy in an interview focused on her new book, Bury the Hot, which describes the life experience of Holocaust survivor Sal Wainberg.
I love Rebecca Klempner’s writing. Check out her latest, beautiful essay for Tablet, filled with layered meanings for Tisha B’Av.
Appreciate having discovered author Gloria Goldreich’s essay on “The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Zionist” in Hadassah magazine.
