Each week as Shabbat approaches, the My Machberet blog presents a collection of links, drawn primarily from the world of Jewish books.
- The April iteration of the Jewish Book Carnival, a gathering of Jewish-book news hosted for the month by Deborah Kalb, went live this week.
- Personally, I have my hands full at the moment with the release of the third season of “Fauda” on Netflix, but if you’re looking for more viewing recommendations, the Forward has updated its guide to “every single Israeli TV show and movie that you can stream right now.”
- As it celebrates its tenth anniversary, Jewish Review of Books asks some of its favorite writers for reading recommendations.
- Both because I’m slated to teach a course on Holocaust literature next year and because I’m an admirer of the prolific scholar Victoria Aarons, I was intrigued to run across this new review of Aarons’s Holocaust Graphic Narratives: Generation, Trauma, and Memory.
- And last, but perhaps not least: Birthright and I joined The Book of Life podcast this week to take part in the show’s “Books in the Time of Coronavirus” series.
Wishing everyone a safe, healthy Shabbat Shalom.
