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

  • Nice to see this Q&A with my former poetry teacher Matthew Lippman over on The Whole Megillah.
  • A powerful essay by Pearl Abraham, centered around her mother’s final Passover, over on Literary Hub.
  • With echoes of the stories of Lucette Lagnado and André Aciman, Ashley Jacobs recalls her grandparents’ “20-Century Exodus” from Egypt on
  • A pretty great week for Abigail Pogrebin’s My Jewish Year: a review in The New York Times, an appearance on The Today Show—and, coming up on Sunday morning: an appearance on Face the Nation.
  • And, ICYMI, what I consider to be yesterday’s necessary deed of the day: calling out anti-Israel bias on a major radio show’s website.
  • Shabbat shalom.
