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

  • “The Promise of Israel’s New Orthodox Cinema”—informative piece by Benjamin Kerstein for Mosaic.
  • “The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute awards grants to support research or artistic projects on Jewish women’s and gender issues across a range of disciplines.” And now is the time to apply for the current round.
  • If you haven’t begun seeing the press about Nicole Krauss’s new novel, you’ll likely soon be noticing it. See, for example, Erica Wagner’s profile of Krauss for The Guardian.
  • Attention, David Grossman fans: check out the Israeli author’s new song-cycle on a site with Hebrew, Arabic, and English text. (Background info on Tablet.)
  • And you’ve got about one week left to enter this Goodreads giveaway for an chance to win the first volume of Rabbi Shai Held’s The Heart of Torah: Essays on the Weekly Torah Portion.
  • Shabbat shalom.
