Pre-Shabbat Jewish Literary Links
Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
Beautiful essays by my friends Rebecca Klempner (on how her beloved and much-missed grandmother’s Reform Judaism helped inform and inspire her own Orthodox commitments) and Rabbi Lisa Greene (on guiding students writing divrei Torah as they prepare for their adult b’nai mitzvah service).
Job alert: 70 Faces Media “is looking for an editorial and community guru to help oversee one of its sites, My Jewish Learning, the digital Jewish home-base of more than one million people each month. This job is right for you if you are passionate about digital engagement, you have strong editorial chops, and you know the difference between Purim and Passover. The Editorial Operations Manager will help create new content and products for My Jewish Learning, and provide editorial, community and production support for other 70 Faces Media brands, including The Nosher, our popular food blog. This position supports the audience and editorial teams in developing and implementing strategies to increase web, email, and community engagement.”
This week brought us the latest Jewish Book Carnival.
ICYMI: a bit about the latest issue of Shirim: A Jewish Poetry Journal, over on my other blog.
And speaking of poetry: Ahead of Shavuot, please enjoy these poems, inspired by the book of Ruth.
