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.
- A beautiful essay by Ruth Behar about writing a Sephardic picture book—and, by the way, I highly recommend the book in question. (Hat tip: Hannah Pressman.)
- “Hollywood’s Orthodox Jew Problem”: a JITC documentary.
- Thread from Lior Zaltzman that begins: “CALL FOR PITCHES: It’s summer and @Kveller is looking for new writers & pitches! We’re a site for people raising Jewish kids and we’re looking for a wide range of JEWISH content — from how a Jewish TV character makes you feel seen to how a Jewish word or concept helps you parent.” Pays: “Kveller’s standard rate is $100 per piece and we’re looking for pieces that are 700 – 1000 words.”
- News from Israel: author A.B. Yehoshua has died.
- And icymi, our very own My Machberet is the host for the June Jewish Book Carnival.
