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

  • Tablet is celebrating National Poetry Month, “sharing stories about poetry and poets from our archives all month.”
  • Speaking of poetry–you know how director Darren Aronofsky has a new movie out about Noah and the flood? Well, thanks to The Forward, we can also read a poem Aronofsky wrote about that story back in seventh grade.
  • “My Memoirs Made Me Jewish, or How Jewish Is Enough?”–guest post by Nancy K. Miller for The Whole Megillah.
  • J-Job alert: The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington is looking for a Writer/Editor. Application period closes April 9.
  • Shabbat shalom.

      Nancy K. Miller’s books seems to be very interesting. It’s so nice that she was able to reconstruct the story of her family (or at least a significant part of it). Many of your readers would probably agree that it’s not always the case.
      And the last sentence of her post is just brilliant! If I may quote: “I learned from What They Saved and then Breathless that I could only solve the Goldilocks problem—the “just right” of Jewishness—through writing itself, in other words by not solving it at all.”
