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.
- “Nice Jewish Books” is a new podcast from the Association of Jewish Libraries that focuses on “adult Jewish fiction” (meaning that it’s not focused on kidlit).
- Also new: the New York Public Library’s “LGBTQ + Jewish,” which is a guide to “LGBTQ+ Jewish research from scholarly, communal, and personal perspectives.”
- For the National Library of Israel, Mark Schneegurt writes about “Stirring Words from the Victims of the Mexican Inquisition,” spotlighting a translated religious poetry anthology that is now available on the NLI website. (Related from my archive: my own piece about Luis de Carvajal the Younger.)
- Jewish Insider shares “Eleven New Books to Read in November.”
- I haven’t yet had the chance to dig in to it at all, but the third volume of SAPIR, “a journal of Jewish conversations,” is now online. Its theme: “Continuity,”
Shabbat shalom. And one quick postscript: There won’t be a “Jewish Lit Links” post next Thursday. Don’t worry—it, and I, will return!
