Each week as Shabbat approaches, the My Machberet blog presents a collection of links, drawn primarily from the world of Jewish books and writing.
- This week brought us the latest Jewish Book Carnival, hosted by the Life is Like a Library blog.
- “The Israel Film Archive on Monday launched a new website, incorporating thousands of hours of local movies as well as historic film clips, some of them quite rare.” So Haaretz reported on Wednesday. Check out the website (here’s the English version) for yourself.
- With its latest issue, JewishFiction.net is celebrating is celebrating its tenth anniversary.
- Another new-issue alert: The latest Jewish Review of Books is now online. Lots there that I’m eager to read (though I may wait, as usual, for my print copy). Limited online access for non-subscribers.
- And ICYMI: My own Birthright: Poems appeared this week on the Kenyon Review blog, paired with another Jewish poetry collection for Ruben Quesada’s “Poetry Today” series.
And that’s all for 5780, everyone. Ending this post with my very best wishes for both Shabbat and the Jewish New Year that we’ll begin celebrating this evening.
