Pre-Shabbat Jewish Literary Links
Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
From the Jewish Review of Books: an interview with prominent translator Jessica Cohen (the conduit, for many of us, for so many essential works of Israeli literature).
Speaking of translation: Check out “A Moveable Shtetl,” the 2018 translation issue of the Yiddish Book Center’s Pakn Treger.
“Over the last several months, at least six online publications have launched with the aim of appealing to Jewish women, especially Orthodox women.” Shira Hanau reports for The Jewish Week.
One of those six publications is Jewess, where poet and musician Alicia Jo Rabins was featured earlier this week.
And to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Sydney Taylor Book Awards, the Association of Jewish Libraries will be hosting a family event at the Boston Public Library this Sunday, June 17th.
