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

  • Job alert: Jew in the City is hiring an Editor/Manager of Marketing and Operations.
  • Lovely Forward essay by Joshua Braff on his road to becoming a writer — and his Jewish grandmother’s reactions along the way.
  • In The Jewish Week, Sandee Brawarsky explores the “growing literary genre of ex-Orthodox testing traditional narrative of insular communities.”
  • The New Jersey Jewish News recaps April’s “Frames: Jewish Culture and the Comic Book,” a two-day conference at Princeton University.
  • Next week brings the official publication of Jonathan Papernick’s The Book of Stone (Fig Tree Books). As a member of the FTB team, I was happy to see that this week brought a highly enthusiastic (and highly comprehensive) review on the Jewish Book Council’s website.
  • Shabbat Shalom!
