Pre-Shabbat #JewLit Links

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

  • “Sh’ma”—a beautiful poem by Julia Knobloch.
  • Listen in as Ruby Namdar discusses his novel The Ruined House (translated by Hillel Halkin), in a conversation that was recorded at The Jewish Theological Seminary in New York.
  • Discount alert! Big new year’s discount (38%! [20+18, get it?]) on The Going: A Meditation on Jewish Law by my book-promo client Leon Wiener Dow. Use code PALNBA18. Offer expires February 20.
  • In case you missed it: Monday brought the announcement of the inaugural winner and honor titles for the Association of Jewish Libraries Jewish Fiction Award. See my report for Tablet.
  • And speaking of the Association of Jewish Libraries: check out this week’s blog tour in celebration of the 2018 Sydney Taylor Book Awards for children’s and teen literature.
  • Shabbat shalom, everyone.
