Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
Thrilled to have had the chance to attend the Association of Jewish Libraries annual conference this week. Hope to have at least one or two more detailed posts for you sometime soon, possibly over on the Fig Tree Books blog.
Speaking of Fig Tree Books: Notice who has published three of the nine books on JTA’s summer reading list!
My weekend plans include catching up on Jerome Charyn’s posts for the Jewish Book Council “Visting Scribe” series.
The Forward seeks your help in finding “the best new voices in Jewish music.”
“An alarming number of poor souls among our brethren seem to feel that all they require for a genuine Jewishness is Woody Allen and Philip Roth and Jerry Seinfeld.” Just one of many eye-catching lines from Leon Wieseltier, via Tablet.
