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

  • Mazal tov to Richard Chess on the publication of his latest poetry collection. I can’t wait to read Love Nailed to the Doorpost, which Rick recently discussed in this interview.
  • Not sure how I’ve missed this incredible online treasure, but TeachGreatJewishBooks.org is an amazing resource.
  • “This year, feminist Jewish magazine Lilith is celebrating 40 years in print. On March 26, there will be a celebration at Brandeis University, where Lilith’s archives of manuscripts, photographs, letters, cover art, notes, drafts, and much more can be viewed by the public. The celebration will feature a panel which will include Keshet Executive Director Idit Klein. The Sunday afternoon panel is free and open to the public with pre-registration.” More details/RSVP info available here.
  • News from Jerusalem: “Best-selling authors are coming to the Tower of David at the Jaffa Gate for a new series of literary events in English presented in cooperation with The Times of Israel.” (Thanks to @DevorahBlachor for the tip on this one.)
  • And here’s one more Jewish-lit event to share (and this one will be livestreamed): Abigail Pogrebin and Rabbi Joseph Telushkin in conversation at the Jewish Theological Seminary, Monday evening, 7:30 pm (New York time).
  • Shabbat shalom, everyone.
