Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

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

  • If you’ve wondered how to introduce Anne Frank’s story to kids, you might want to check out this interview with Jane Kohuth, author of Anne Frank’s Chestnut Tree.
  • I’m hoping to spend part of this weekend watching a recording of “Women in Religious Texts and Contexts: New Voices in the Biographical Novel,” featuring Anita Diamant, Rebecca Kanner, and Sherry Jones.
  • Harvey Freedenberg reviews David Laskin’s The Family: Three Journeys into the Heart of the Twentieth Century.
  • Also instructive: David Horovitz’s conversation with Yossi Klein Halevi on the occasion of the latter’s Like Dreamers: The Story of the Israeli Paratroopers Who Reunited Jerusalem and Divided a Nation.
  • Learn more about author James Salter ( James Horowitz) in Rich Cohen’s Jewish Review of Books piece.
  • Shabbat shalom.
