Jewish Literary Links

Each week as Shabbat approaches, the My Machberet blog presents a collection of links, drawn primarily from the world of Jewish books and writing.

  • Today is Purim! In honor of the day, I want to kick off these links by directing you to “one of the world’s oldest known Esther scrolls (also known as a ‘megillah‘),” which “has recently been gifted to the National Library of Israel in Jerusalem.”
  • JewishFiction.net this week published its “Purim and Pesach” issue.
  • Meantime, over on the Jewish Review of Books site, James Goodman writes about Esther in America, a new anthology edited by Stuart Halpern (Goodman describes the book as “an exegetical page-turner.”)
  • In case you missed it—the latest “Midweek Notes” on my other blog featured plenty of Jewish lit.
  • And though it’s not specifically Jewish-focused, the March issue of my newsletter for writers will go out to subscribers later this weekend. If you’re a writer seeking free-to-submit contests and calls for submission (all of which will pay for winning/published work), and you’re not yet a subscriber, consider yourself invited to join us.

Shabbat shalom and Chag sameach!

  1. Wow! About the scroll. I am sharing the link with my synagogue members and some other friends and relatives. Thanks, Erika.
