Each week as Shabbat approaches, the My Machberet blog presents a collection of links, drawn primarily from the world of Jewish books and writing.
- Over on the Writer’s Digest site, novelist Michelle Cameron explains “why she’s driven to write Jewish historical fiction and why it’s not about the Holocaust.”
- “The Algemeiner newspaper is seeking a Senior Campus Correspondent to report on antisemitism and anti-Israel activity at university campuses and schools around the world, as well as cover stories about Jewish student life….Our office is located in New York, NY. Candidates who prefer to work remotely are also welcome to apply.”
- From the National Library of Israel/Chen Malul: an article “in memory of 100 years of Judeo-Arabic literature.”
- Can’t resist sharing this discovery from one of my Facebook groups: “Invite some colorful new guests to your sukkah, home, synagogue, or classroom this year. This banner features original illustrations of seven lesser-known Jewish women from history. These Women of the Book were writers, scribes, journalists, publishers, and poets, and all brought their own unique voices to their craft.” (Price: $50.)
- And icymi: some exciting news about a forthcoming Jewish poetry anthology.
