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

  • This week brought us the latest Jewish Book Carnival, hosted for January by Deborah Kalb.
  • A detailed call for submissions from the Forward‘s Sisterhood blog. (Yes, freelancers–writers are paid for their work here!)
  • “J. the Jewish News of Northern California has an opening for a full-time editorial assistant who will handle a multitude of responsibilities. The position is based in our office in San Francisco’s Financial District, and will begin in late February.” The same publication is also advertising for a reporter.
  • A definite highlight of my week: Monday’s “Jews and Muslims in America” conference, presented in New York by the Shalom Hartman Institute. You can view a number of session videos here; if you’re media-focused, you may be especially interested in a panel on “Jewish and Muslim Media, Reporting, and Storytelling.”
  • And over at Fig Tree Books, where I’m Media Editor, we’re delighted with another enthusiastic review of Abigail Pogrebin’s forthcoming My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew (this time, from Library Journal). Plus, we’ve launched another giveaway—enter here for a chance to win an advance copy.
  • Shabbat shalom, everyone.
