Pre-Shabbat Jewish Literary Links
Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
Over on The New Yorker‘s website, Jonathan Safran Foer discusses “Maybe It Was the Distance,” a piece—drawn from his forthcoming novel—that appears in the magazine’s current, fiction-focused issue.
On Christi Craig’s blog: a terrific new Q&A with Jessamyn Hope (plus an opportunity to win a giveaway copy of Safekeeping, Hope’s debut novel).
Mazal tov to Israeli author Etgar Keret on being named the latest recipient of the Charles Bronfman Prize.
Aleph Beta is looking for a Writer and Editor of Torah Content. “This is a full time job located in Hewlett, NY with the possibility of telecommuting.”
And just in time for #Shavuot: a suite of poems on Tablet (and one more on the Forward‘s Sisterhood blog).
Shabbat Shalom and Shavuot Tov!
