Each week as Shabbat approaches, the My Machberet blog presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
- Appreciated this week’s Tel Aviv Review podcast episode, titled “Well-Behaved Orthodox Journalists Seldom Make History.” The episode features Orthodox journalists Sivan Rahav-Meir and Avital Chizhik-Goldschmidt, who “discuss the media, religion and gender in a panel discussion held at Yeshiva University in New York.”
- Speaking of podcasts: The Book of Life’s Heidi Rabinowitz is launching a “Books in the Time of Coronavirus” feature. If you have written or illustrated a new Jewish book, you’re invited to take part and “virtually promote” your book.
- TBR: the latest issue of JewishFiction.net.
- Quick reminder that the Jewish Book Council continues to update a resource page with information on upcoming “Jewish Literary Conversations in Quarantine.”
- And on that note—please mark your calendars! I’ve been invited to participate in Hidden Timber Books’s new (and free!) Online Author Reading Series (I’ll be reading April 5, and you can register here; readers of My Machberet who are familiar with Julie Zuckerman and her lovely short stories will be glad to know that Julie’s already booked to read in this series, too: on May 3). In the meantime, you can preview the experience of watching me read from Birthright on Facebook, too.
Once again, I’m wishing everyone a safe, healthy Shabbat shalom.
