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.
  • Shabbat shalom.
