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.

  • This week brought the latest Jewish Book Carnival, featuring #JewLit news, reviews, and interviews from around the Jewish blogosphere. Hosted for July by Yael Shahar.
  • A poignant share this week from the National Library of Israel: the text of Hannah Senesh’s last letter to her brother.
  • On my weekend reading list: Ruth Franklin’s New Yorker article on the ways children’s books deal with the Holocaust.
  • Also among my weekend reading (for an upcoming book club): Jennifer S. Brown’s novel Modern Girls, which I’ve been meaning to read for too long!
  • And ICYMI: a couple of #JewLit-y updates from my own little corner of the world as shared earlier this week on my other blog.
  • Shabbat shalom, chaverim.
