Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

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

  • Up for a challenge? Try to absorb Tablet magazine’s list of “101 Great Jewish Books.”
  • Rebecca Klempner prepared a play for children to perform at her synagogue over Yom Kippur. On her blog, she shares some lessons learned.
  • You thought the Holy Days came “early”? Well, Chanukah will, too. The Jewish Book Council’s new children’s book reviews are helping me plan gift purchases.
  • I noticed several commentaries online after Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” Israel episode aired on Sunday; I’ll recommend one from New Jersey Jewish News‘s Andrew Silow-Carroll.
  • New Yorkers still have two chances to meet Israeli graphic novelist Rutu Modan this weekend.
  • Shabbat shalom.

        I loved your post, Becca–especially since I still harbor dreams of becoming a playwright myself. Someday….
