Pre-Shabbat #JewLit Links
Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
A Jewish mama in the U.K. offers “5 Reasons Why We Love PJ Library”; reading it, I was reminded (again) how often Jewish literature is under-represented in conversations about literary diversity and inclusion.
From the National Library of Israel: a profile of Abraham Sutzkever, “The Partisan Poet Rescued from the Woods of Lithuania.” (FYI: David E. Fishman’s new book, described in my recent Forward article on Rachela Krinsky, offers some superb narrative on Sutzkever.)
On Tablet, Liel Leibovitz recalls “the greatest Jewish writer you may not have even heard of.” (Confession: I hadn’t.)
TODAY is the deadline to apply for the position of Director of Cultural Programs and Internships at the Eldridge Street Synagogue in New York.
Included in the latest issue of my Practicing Writer newsletter: a reminder about the Natan Book Award at the Jewish Book Council, which welcomes applications until March 31.
