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

  • Liam Hoare shares “Knishes and Kilts, and Other Highlights of London’s Jewish Book Week” on the eJewishPhilanthropy site.
  • New on the Fig Tree Books site: Kathe Pinchuk’s review of Anne Roiphe’s Lovingkindness.
  • Did you miss the chance to hear authors Anita Diamant and Dara Horn in conversation? Thanks to Moment magazine, you can now read a transcript.
  • Michael Weingrad’s analysis of Reuven Namdar’s Sapir Prize-winning novel (for Mosaic) makes me even more eager for the translation than I already was.
  • And speaking of translation: podcaster Gil Roth recently met with eminent translator Anthea Bell; their ensuing discussion contains plenty of “Jewy” material and is well worth a listen.
  • Shabbat shalom, friends.
