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

  • In “the first of a five-part series on growing anti-Semitism in the U.K.,” Tablet magazine presents Howard Jacobson, “the literary voice of British Jewry.”
  • Mazal tov to the winners and finalists for the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature!
  • Barbara Krasner offers “7 Reasons Why a Writer Should Attend the Annual Association of Jewish Libraries Conference.”
  • Having recently read Anita Diamant’s The Boston Girl, I thought Gloria Kestenbaum’s review for The Jewish Week‘s Well Versed blog was spot-on.
  • I’m only halfway through, but I already agree with my friend Rebecca Klempner, who pronounces this recorded interview with Dara Horn “required reading [watching?] for anyone interested in writing the Jewish experience.”
  • Shabbat shalom.

      Hi, everyone–I realize that I inadvertently omitted the link to the Howard Jacobson piece. The Tablet site seems to be having an issue this morning, but as soon as I can recheck the link and add it in here, I will do so. Apologies for the inconvenience!

      And the link has been added!

    3. Hey! I belatedly noticed my shout-out. Thanks! And I hope you finished that video. The Tikvah fellows asked great questions, and I was really impressed with how Dara Horn answered them on the spot with such eloquence.

        Yes, Becca, I did manage to finish it over the weekend–you’re right–it’s really excellent!
