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

  • A poem on being a Jewish poet, by Yehoshua November, courtesy of Jewish Journal.
  • “What Do You Wear to Get Divorced?” – a personal essay by Rabbi Lisa Greene.
  • Rachel Hall’s exquisite collection of linked short stories continues to receive lovely pre-publication attention, most recently in Sejal Shah’s interview with Rachel for the Kenyon Review blog.
  • In a lovely essay for Moment magazine, Anna Solomon describes how the work of Aharon Appelfeld showed her “that in writing about Jews, I could write about everyone and belong everywhere.”
  • And ICYMI, I have a little something in the latest Moment magazine, too.
  • Shabbat shalom!
