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

  • Calvin Trillin explains what Cynthia Ozick taught him about his grandfather.
  • An interesting “shortlist” of four books on Jewish identity.
  • Bumper crop of book-focused blog posts in this month’s Jewish Book Carnival.
  • Author Ilan Mochari describes his visit to the Rochester Jewish Book Festival.
  • “We invite you to join our growing global community of Jewish artists for the second year of Asylum Arts: International Jewish Artist Retreat!” (If “you” are between 22 and 39 years of age, that is.)
  • Shabbat shalom.
