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

  • On Tablet: a thoughtful piece by Marjorie Ingall that pleads for a bit more subject-diversity in Jewish books for children.
  • This month’s Jewish Book Carnival is hosted over on Jodie Books. Check it out.
  • One of the links I discovered in the aforementioned Carnival: Deborah Kalb’s Q&A with Shulem Deen, whose memoir All Who Go Do Not Return I’m seeing mentioned everywhere and I’m looking forward to reading soon.
  • ICYMI: My midweek post on Practicing Writing had some things to say about Yom HaShoah.
  • Fig Tree Books published its second book this week: a re-issue of Meyer Levin’s classic Compulsion. Read Adam Kirsch’s take.
  • Shabbat shalom.

      I read Compulsion when I was young and I remember how disturbing the book was but I didn’t remember the story. Your review brought it all back.

        Maybe you’ll re-read it now, Paul!
