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

  • A beautiful poem, “The Second Deaf Rabbi in America,” by 15-year-old poet Hannah Karp (via Rattle).
  • This Jewish Book Council interview with Dalia Rosenfeld makes me even more eager to read Rosenfeld’s new collection The Worlds We Think We Know.
  • “As the yearly Israeli Book Week approaches, the National Library of Israel has published the annual data report on Israel’s book industry. The data touches on original Israeli books, translated books, types of publishing and areas of publication.”
  • “A Literary Life: Remembering Ann Birstein”—a lovely appreciation by Sandee Brawarsky.
  • Lots of discussion of Jews and “whiteness” this week. One post that expresses something close to my own take: this, from Sarah Tuttle-Singer.
  • Shabbat shalom.
