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

  • See what you think of this Book Riot list of “100 Must-Read Works of Jewish Fiction” (we at Fig Tree Books are pretty happy with #28).
  • Speaking of Jewish fiction: Avital Chizik-Goldschmidt’s “A Holy Fool,” on Tablet, is well worth your time.
  • A new issue of Lilith magazine is now available.
  • From the world of young-adult lit: “11 YA Authors Discuss the Role of Faith in Their Lives,” on the BNTeen blog (and offer some reading recommendations).
  • And an extra-hearty Mazal Tov for everyone recognized by the American Jewish Press Association’s latest Rockower Awards.
  • Shabbat Shalom.

      re: the 100 book list

      I am surprised to see more than a few names here that I would not
      say are Jewish. What’s the qualification here? Jewish topic of the book?
      A distant Jewish relative? A Jewish parent even though the writer was not
      raised Jewish? Very confusing!

        Well, I think the article acknowledges that the list represents a mélange of conceptions of “Jewish.”
