  • The Jewish Book Council is hiring a Program Associate. Although this position is temporarily remote, “can­di­dates should be in the Metro New York Area and have the abil­i­ty to return to JBC’s office in Man­hat­tan full time begin­ning in sum­mer 2021.” Salary range: “$40 – 43k.”
  • Also from the Jewish Book Council: The current window for poetry submissions closes April 30. Original poems “will be con­sid­ered for JBC’s online poet­ry series, Berru, as well as Paper Brigade.” Pay rates are not published, but “all authors are paid for orig­i­nal work.”
  • Speaking of Jewish poetry: Mark your calendars for a free, online reading featuring contributors from 101 Jewish Poems for the Third Millennium (I am one of the participating contributors—please join us!).
  • I subscribe to quite a few podcasts—but I’m pretty sure that I subscribe to just one that’s hosted by a teenager! In the latest episode of “Backstage Babble,” Charles Kirsch interviews Samantha Hahn, author of On The Roof, a recent book about the Yiddish production of Fiddler on the Roof, in which she played Beylke, one of Tevye and Golde’s younger daughters.  
  • As usual, my TBR list overfloweth. But if I’m able to get to Cynthia Ozick’s Antiquities by the time this virtual Book Salon and Beit Midrash with Shai Secunda happens on May 23, here’s a tempting invitation from 929 English.

I wish you all a (slightly early!) Shabbat shalom.
