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

  • On Tablet, in time for Yom HaShoah: an excerpt from Leela Corman’s forthcoming graphic novel Victory Parade, in which a Jewish American soldier helps liberate Buchenwald—and is haunted by the experience.
  • Also connected with Yom HaShoah: “UnWitnessable: A Reading of Contemporary Poetry and Prose Related to the Holocaust,” an event for those in the Philadelphia area, happening next Wednesday, April 26.
  • “Washington Jewish Week, a print and multi-platform digital publication covering the capital region’s diverse Jewish community, is looking for an enthusiastic, quick-learning general assignment reporter/writer to join our Rockville-based news team full time.”
  • Check out the April Jewish Book Carnival, hosted this month by Yael Shahar.
  • And enjoy Judy Bolton-Fasman’s super write-up of Lilith magazine’s recent 40th-anniversary celebration at Brandeis University. Included: a sneak peek into Rachel Kadish’s forthcoming novel.
  • Shabbat shalom.

      Hey Everyone,
      Just wanted to say that the “(Un)Witnessable” reading is part of a two-day event at the University of Pennsylvania. The following day, Thursday, April 27th, there is a day long graduate student conference at the Perry World House, followed by a Keynote address by Professor Anika Walke at the Slought Foundation. The detailed information about the reading and conference can be found on our website: https://swbupenn.wordpress.com/
      Thanks so much!
