Pre-Shabbat Jewish Literary Links

Image description: pages of Hebrew text.

Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.

  • Especially if you haven’t had the opportunity to catch one of author Ruby Namdar’s appearances in person (but even if you have had that chance): a video recording of his recent visit to the University of California Santa Barbara and his presentation on “Living in English, Writing in Hebrew.”
  • On finding holiness within a jail cell—a stunning essay by Leslie Schwartz.
  • Changes are afoot at the UK-based Jewish Quarterly. Find out more in this editor’s letter and in this eJewish Philanthropy item I caught this week.
  • Also changing: Mosaic, which is now charging $2.99 per month for full access (you can, however, access three articles per month without a subscription).
  • In the Los Angeles Review of Books: David Stromberg’s fascinating account of “Isaac Bashevis Singer in Israel.”
  • And the book I’m reading now: my friend Andrew Furman’s Goldens Are Here, which Sandee Brawarsky featured prominently in this summer-reading piece for The Jewish Week.
  • Shabbat shalom!

    1. Erika, thanks to you I learned about the Australian site Jewish Women of Words and my poem was posted. You are a resource with breadth and depth. We appreciate your weekly efforts.
