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.

  • “The Artists Against Antisemitism are honored to announce the First Annual Yom HaShoah Community Arts Project. We’re inviting artists from all backgrounds and mediums to contribute a work of art in response to a prompt that captures the resiliency of the Jewish people in honor of Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. The artwork will be displayed in a virtual gallery and on our Instagram page throughout the month of May for Jewish Heritage month.” Deadline: April 25.
  • Happening Sunday (April 14): Literary Modiin’s fourth Solidarity with Israel event. Learn more/register here.
  • “Are you looking to enrich cultural programming in your community? Partner with the Yiddish Book Center to curate a series of programs that will deepen and enrich your community’s creative and intellectual engagement with Yiddish literature, music, film, art, theater, history, and politics.” NB: “Any US nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status or Canadian nonprofit is eligible.” Apply by May 5.
  • “On the Lower East Side, a corporate ‘fixer’ honors his Jewish roots with a unique, NYC-centric bookstore.” By Lisa Keys for JTA.
  • And in case you’ve missed it, there’s something else you may want to check out on JTA: my latest essay—a mix of memoir, reportage, and opinion. (Headline: “Literature celebrates nuance. So why does the book world feel so one-sided on Israel?”) The piece zooms in on the National Book Critics Circle (NBCC).

Reminder: I continue to update the “After October 7: Readings, Recordings, and More” document-in-progress. Check also cautionary information (also in-progress), compiled under the title “Writers, Beware.”

Shabbat shalom.

  1. Thank you for your recent essay on JTA. Disturbing and painful but necessary to speak out loud.
