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

  • “I’m writing in a tradition of, frankly, mostly Jewish writers.” So says Jesse Eisenberg in a Tablet interview (with Tal Kra-Oz) occasioned by Eisenberg’s new story collection Bream Gives Me Hiccups.
  • Jewish Currents is seeking an Associate Editor. (I asked the editor about location; his reply: “I live and work in the Mid-Hudson Valley [New York], but it’s not required for someone to be in my neighborhood.”
  • J. the Jewish news weekly of Northern California, is hiring a Managing Editor. (This ad is a few weeks old already, but I just learned about it this week.)
  • An interesting post on the Fig Tree Books blog this week (if I say so myself!) on the topic of “rabbinic fiction.”
  • ICYMI: You still have time to win a copy of my story collection Quiet Americans.
  • Shabbat shalom.
