Pre-Shabbat 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.

  • Essay-contest opportunity from the Canadian Jewish News (open to Canadian citizens and residents of Canada, ages 18-29). No fee to enter. Cash prizes.
  • The July Jewish Book Carnival has gone live. This month’s host is Ann D. Koffsky.
  • Also this week: My client, Scott Hilton Davis, was the guest of Rabbi Sam Cohon on the “Too Jewish” podcast. Up for discussion: reviving Yiddish authors in translation, including the first-ever release of Jacob Dinezon’s The Dark Young Man.
  • As I mentioned on my other blog this week, I’ve been doing a fair amount of reading lately—including a lot of Jewish-themed reading. Check out my updates on Goodreads or right here on my website.
  • And ICYMI: I also shared something super-special on my other blog—the cover reveal for my forthcoming (and very Jewish!) deubt poetry collection.
  • Wishing everyone a Shabbat shalom.
