Pre-Shabbat (and Passover!) Jewish Literary Links

The words "Jewish Lit Links" are printed over what appears to be a portion of a Torah scroll.
In which the My Machberet blog presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.

  • “Holocaust Jokes” is a powerful work by Sarah Snider, recently published by The Masters Review.
  • I still haven’t managed to read my friend Rebecca Klempner’s new kidlit book Adina at Her Best—but another friend, Talia Liben Yarmush, has just reviewed it for Jewish Home LA.
  • If you’re one of the many Shtisel fans I know, you’ll likely appreciate Ruth Margalit’s piece on the show and its co-creators. (And if you haven’t yet watched the series, the piece may prompt you to do so.)
  • I’ve run across two job postings at the Forward: Editor-in-Chief and Audience Development Editor.
  • Finally, the April edition of the Jewish Book Carnival was posted this week, hosted for the month by Gila Green.
  • Wishing everyone a Shabbat shalom, happy Passover—and l’hitraot, since I’ll be taking a brief break from blogging.
