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.

  • Treat of the week: my brilliant friend Sivan Rotholz discusses contemporary midrash—and reads from some of her own stunning midrashic poems—in this Kol Ramah interview.
  • If it’s mid-month, there’s a new Jewish Book Carnival to enjoy (hosted this month by Yael Shahar).
  • “Baltimore Jewish Times (JT), published by Mid-Atlantic Media, a fast-growing publisher of niche community and ethnic titles, is looking to add an editor to lead its stable of award-winning journalists.”
  • ICYMI: Earlier this week I shared a bit about the forthcoming course on “21st-Century Jewish Literature” that I’ll be teaching this upcoming semester at a local college. (And then, I offered more details on Twitter.)
  • Also shared right here on My Machberet: a look back on a meaningful (and brief) bit of fiction from my archive.

Shabbat shalom.

    Sivan Rotholz’s midrash on Genesis 31:19 at 12:20. Overturns centuries of commentary.
