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.
- As Pride Month draws to a close, I’m appreciating this list of “Memoirs and Biographies By and About Queer Jewish Authors” over on the Hadassah magazine cite, which mixes titles that I’ve already read with some that are still on my tbr list.
- A hearty mazal tov to my friend Rebecca Klempner for the lovely pre-publication Kirkus review that her forthcoming (and very Jewish!) picture book has earned. I am so looking forward to reading How to Welcome an Alien, which is illustrated by Shirley Waisman and will be released by Kalaniot Books.
- Lilith, “a small but mighty Jewish feminist magazine,” seeks “a short-term digital strategist for Summer 2023. We’re looking for an experienced social media professional to create and deliver a social media and email strategy that matches our award-winning content and lively multi-platform presence–not to mention our rich archives.” Note: Although this is listed as a remote position, “Lilith’s offices are based in New York, so there is an option of in person work if based locally.” The project rate is listed as $2,500.
- New York-based Jewish Book Council “seeks a highly motivated Development Associate who will support Jewish Book Council’s development initiatives….JBC currently works a hybrid schedule and team members are expected to work from the office several days a week….The salary range for this position is $50-60k.”
- And icymi: As I develop my fall-semester course on “Contemporary Jewish Short Stories,” I’m experimenting with how ChatGPT may (and may not) assist me. Take a peek, if you dare!
