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

  • In the latest New Yorker fiction podcast, Allan Gurganus reads and discusses (with Deborah Treisman) Grace Paley’s “My Father Addresses Me on the Facts of Old Age,” from a 2002 issue of the magazine.
  • “Seven Jewish Authors Get Personal About Anti-Semitism.” A roundtable from We Need Diverse Books.
  • Looking forward to reading through the new issue of Lilith magazine.
  • The Fig Tree Books blog takes note of the 20th anniversary of the passing of Henry Roth, author of the classic Call It Sleep.
  • You’ve never read a Sukkot poem like Chaya Lester’s “In Honor of the Murdered…and Their Orphans,” a response to recent events in Israel, on Hevria.
  • May it be a Shabbat Shalom for all.
