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

  • Coming this weekend in The New York Times Magazine: a poem by Yehoshua November (online now).
  • I love Zhanna Slor’s essays about her family and immigration history. Here’s a newly published piece, “They Used to Call Me Kolya.
  • Yizkor-related rabbinical thoughts, from David Wolpe and Lisa S. Greene.
  • Now available: the October Jewish Book Carnival.
  • And ICYMI: some reflections (and a small reading list) inspired by Adam Kirsch’s The People and the Books.
  • Shabbat shalom!
