Pre-Shabbat #JewLit Links
Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
“It’s Hard Not to Write on Shabbos”: a lovely essay by Merri Ukraincik.
Wonderful Tel Aviv Review podcast episode with my book-pr client Leon Wiener Dow on his new book, The Going: A Meditation on Jewish Law, “an autobiographical and theological exploration of the relationship between God, law prayer, practice and community in Jewish law.”
(And ICYMI: Yesterday I shared here info on an upcoming free book event with Leon happening soon here in NYC.)
Also something you may not have caught elsewhere: the latest installment of my “View from the USA” column for the UK’s Jewish Chronicle, which went live just before Shabbat last week.
If spending some summer time in an Jewish arts-focused community in the Hamptons appeals to you, you may want to look into the Art Kibbutz Summer Institute. NB: There’s no fee to apply, but there is one to participate.
