Each week as Shabbat approaches, the My Machberet blog presents a collection of links, drawn primarily from the world of Jewish books and writing.
- Just a few days remain if you’d like to submit a (very) short story connected with Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur for possible publication by Every Day Fiction. (No simultaneous submissions.)
- I’ve been watching the HBO series Our Boys and it’s made me appreciate all over again Rachel Neve Midbar’s poem “Searching for Our Sons.”
- ICYMI: a couple of days ago I posted a list of fall books of Jewish interest that I’m especially looking forward to. (In related news: the Jewish Women’s Archive has announced its reading roster for its 2019-20 Book Club.)
- Job alert: In San Francisco, “the Jewish Community Library, a program of Jewish LearningWorks, is seeking an experienced professional to develop, expand, and implement a broad range of programs serving diverse segments of the population in order to increase engagement with Jewish culture and ideas and to foster greater awareness of, and use of, the Library’s extensive resources.”
- And news from client projects: Over on Deborah Kalb’s excellent site, you can learn a great deal about the writing of The Question Is “Why?” Stanford M. Adelstein, a Jewish Life in South Dakota. And Jewish Storyteller Press is gearing up to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Yiddish author Jacob (Yankev) Dinezon next week in Warsaw.
