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.

  • “De Beauvoir and Sartre on the Kibbutz”—a short story by Moshe Sakal (translated by Jessica Cohen; published by World Literature Today). And yes, I looked up some history, and the two of them (De Beauvoir and Sartre) really did visit Israel (in 1967, before the Six-Day War).
  • “The Very Nervous Family” is a stunning prose poem by Sabrina Orah Mark that I discovered this week via @MrBearStumpy.
  • Adventures in book-touring with Francine Klagsbrun (and, by extension, with Golda Meir).
  • Call for info from In geveb: “Did you publish a translation in 2018 – or will you? Please let us know so we can add you to our round-up.”
  • “Lilith Magazine—independent, Jewish and frankly feminist—invites submissions of quality short fiction, 3,000 words or under, for our Annual Fiction Contest.” No entry fee. Deadline: September 30, 2018. Prize: “$250 + publication.”
  • Shabbat shalom!
