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

  • The latest issue of Jewish Woman magazine features an interview with my wonderful colleague, Fig Tree Books Editor-in-Chief Michelle Caplan.
  • Two great resources for learning more about Israeli literature: Beth Kissileff’s article on Israeli expat writers to watch (JTA) and a mini-collection of Israeli short stories. (via CultureBuzz Israel)
  • Speaking of literature based in Israel: The Ilanot Review at Bar-Ilan University has issued a new call for submissions on the theme of “constraint.” (NB: nonpaying publication).
  • The PJ Library in Los Angeles is looking for five part-time “Community Connectors.”
  • And, ICYMI, read Oliver Sacks’s final piece for The New Yorkeron gefilte fish.
  • This is the last pre-Shabbat post of 5775–so let me wish you all a Shabbat Shalom AND a Shanah Tovah!
