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

  • “After teaching in a UK haredi girls school, secular Jewish author Eve Harris writes a sympathetic 400-page novel about that world’s biggest problems.” The Times of Israel on The Marrying of Chani Kaufman.
  • Nice to see that Israel will be the “guest of honor” at this year’s Guadalajara International Book Fair.
  • From Hadassah magazine: a profile of the Jewish Book Council’s exceptional director, Carolyn Starman Hessel.
  • Another example of a “Jewish book” without a Jewish author: Tablet magazine on “A Horror Story Set in Hasidic Crown Heights.”
  • Another prize for Francesca Segal & The Innocents.
  • Shabbat shalom.

      Hello Erika,
      It was such a pleasure to meet you during your presentation at the Scarsdale Library after reading your newsletter for many months. Your tips on getting published in literary journals was timely for me (and I’ve begun the goals sheet!) I asked you about Jewish publications of one kind or another and you guided me to the bottom of your website, so I assume it is this “Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat,” no?
      Very best to you and thank you for the quantity of top flight information you give writers like me almost every day.
