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.
- ICYMI: You can now catch a recording of PJ Library’s excellent webinar for authors on “integrating midrash (interpretations or commentary on Biblical text) into kidlit.”
- Also recorded: Dr. Nora Gold’s recent National Library of Israel presentation about Jewish fiction and the journal she edits that features it.
- “There Is a Prayer”: a beautiful new poem by Elizabeth Edelglass.
- Thane Rosenbaum’s new Sapir article on “The Eclipse of Jewish Cultural Power” makes for somber reading. (A related webinar is planned for August 24.)
- Queued up for imminent listening: an episode of the 18Forty podcast in which Avital Chizhik-Goldschmidt talks about “journalism, Judaism, and her favorite non-fiction reads.”
