Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
Coming in 2016: a new book by Jeffrey Goldberg, on “the Middle East through the prism of President Obama’s years in power.”
On my more immediate TBR list: Stuart Rojstaczer’s The Mathematician’s Shiva. According to this Jewlicious post, it’s a novel that “mixes Jewish family life, comedy, academia, mystery, greed, chaos shiva, lust and math.”
Matthue Roth on Heinrich Heine’s “love song to cholent.”
On the Moment blog, Linda Tucker reviews Rabbi David Wolpe’s new book on the biblical David.
If you still don’t have enough books on your own TBR list, you’ll find a few more in Sandee Brawarsky’s fall books preview for The Jewish Week. (Coming soon: a similar overview piece by yours truly, elsewhere. Stay tuned!)
