Jewish Literary Links
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.
- Happening next week: the Jerusalem Writers Festival. It will feature plenty of streaming events—including an opening event with David Grossman and Salman Rushdie.
- Also starting next week: Liberation75’s (free) Holocaust Film Festival, in partnership with the Toronto Jewish Film Foundation. (I’m no film scholar, but it seems to me that they’ve assembled a remarkable program, which runs through Mary 15.)
- Sefaria has several job positions open, including one for a Communications Associate.
- For aspiring authors of Jewish kidlit: Earlier this week, PJ Library convened a panel of authors to discuss “Breaking Through to the Other Side: Becoming a Published Author.” And there’s a recording.
- Grateful to the Sandra Kahn Wasserman Jewish Studies Center at Baruch College/CUNY for last weekend’s free access to Fig Tree, a film set in Addis Ababa in 1989.
