Jewish Literary Links

Every Friday before Shabbat, My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety. I plan to be offline for the next several days, but I’ve already found too many great links to skip this week’s post altogether. Enjoy what I’ve found, Shabbat Shalom, and see you next week!

  • Can’t wait to really dig into this series on the future of Jewish theater. (h/t Mosaic magazine)
  • Cynthia Ozick writes brilliantly on Bernard Malamud. Also worth your time: Mark Athitakis on the same.
  • Moment magazine presents Lauren Watel’s utterly affecting short story, “The Nothing of History.”
  • The Book of Life hosts the March Jewish Book Carnival.
  • This Sunday in NYC: “Jewish Poetry Now: A Reading and Discussion Celebrating The Bloomsbury Anthology of Contemporary Jewish American Poetry,” (free event).
