Toward the end of each week, the My Machberet blog presents a collection of links, drawn primarily from the world of Jewish books and writing.

  • From the Jewish Women’s Archive: “Friendly reminder that JWA’s Digital Content Editor is always open for pitches to our site. Write for us!”
  • New York based LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Art and Culture, “a non-religious house of study at the 14th Street Y” whose “goal is to function as an international incubator for creativity” has reopened to fellowship applications. Deadline: November 16.
  • The latest Jewish Book Carnival went live this week, hosted for October by the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature.
  • This is getting to be a habit: I’m enjoying the weekly #WomenOnTheWeek conversations convened by Jewish Women’s International (JWI), featuring journalists from the Forward and JTA and others speaking about the week’s developments. I’ve been watching on JWI’s Facebook Live platform, and they seem to have settled on a regular live broadcast on Fridays at noon (Eastern).
  • In one of this week’s “Take One” podcast episodes, Liel Leibovitz and his guest Ruby Namdar engage in a Talmudic discussion that considers, “should you write while you drink, or drink while you write?”

Shabbat shalom.
