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

  • A marvelous essay by Emily Meg Weinstein about her grandparents/family history.
  • A fascinating account of an epic Yiddish poem—about Kentucky—by Dara Horn.
  • On my viewing agenda: video from an event featuring Ruby Namdar and Liel Leibovitz in conversation about The Ruined House, Namdar’s Sapir Prize-winning novel (which is now available in an English translation by Hillel Halkin).
  • And on my listening agenda: the “grand finale” (for now, anyway) of the Book of Life podcast.
  • ICYMI: Jewish Book Carnival call for submissions.
  • Shabbat shalom!
