Each week as Shabbat approaches, the My Machberet blog presents a collection of links, drawn primarily from the world of Jewish books and writing.
- I’m looking forward to exploring this online collection of “poems, prayers, and artwork for this pandemic Purim,” offered by Bayit’s Liturgical Arts Working Group.
- A not-so happy note, via JTA: “The Arizona Jewish Post, a 75-year-old community publication covering the Jewish population of Tucson and southern Arizona, announced it would cease operations effective March 1.”
- In more uplifting news: This week brought us the latest Jewish Book Carnival, hosted for February by The Book of Life. (By the way, this week The Book of Life posted a superb podcast episode with Aviva Brown, author of Ezra’s Big Shabbat Question [and, as you’ll discover, other books].)
- Job alert: The New York-based Olga Lengyel Institute for Holocaust Studies and Human Rights is hiring a part-time social-media consultant.
- And last weekend I read a few poems from Birthright for a lovely event that was recorded! (And for a little bit more about my poems and other Jewishly-inflected work, check this post!)
