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

  • This year’s winners and finalists for the National Jewish Book Awards have been announced.
  • Thank you, Moment, for posting this conversation between Alan Cheuse and Joyce Carol Oates.
  • I knew that Judy Labensohn’s essay was forthcoming; so glad to discover “Follow Me: A Mother’s Day in the Israeli Army” online this week.
  • Also discovered this week: Atar Hadari’s stunning poems inspired by the life of Ariel Sharon. (h/t @JendiReiter)
  • And from the media world: the Jewish Telegraphic Agency and MyJewishLearning have announced a merger.
  • Shabbat shalom.
