Jewish Literary Links for Shabbat

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

  • For those of you in Israel: Check out this mini-conference on literary translation coming up at Bar Ilan University. (An email announcement that I received assures: “The conference is in English and is free of charge.”)
  • Reading through the January 2014 edition of the Generations of the Shoah International (GSI) newsletter this week, I realized that I might not yet have recommended this monthly e-publication for anyone wanting to follow events and publications relating to Holocaust commemoration and study. Or it has been a long time since I’ve done so.
  • On my tbr list: Claudia Roth Pierpont’s Roth Unbound. Especially after D.G. Myers’s review.
  • An intriguing post from Theater J, including student reflections on Motti Lerner’s play “The Admission.”
  • And in case you missed it: an all-too-brief preview of notable “Jewish books” coming in 2014.
  • Shabbat shalom.

      Are you going to review Roth Unbound?
      All the best,

      1. Erika Dreifus says:

        I’m hoping to read it soon, but at the moment, I don’t anticipate reviewing it.

    2. Sergiusz says:

      I’d like to read it too. I just don’t know when (this year I hope). The tyranny of the to-read pile, you know…

      1. Erika Dreifus says:

        I certainly do know!

      2. Sergiusz says:

        I’ve just realized how perfectly a concept of such tyranny was explained by you in the opening paragraph of 5 Jewish Books to Read in 2014. And I bet we’re not oppressed only by the titles published in 2013.
