Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.

  • About the Jewish children’s book that has incensed anti-vaxxers.
  • Giveaway alert! Win a copy of The Going, an inspiring and insightful new book—part-spiritual memoir, part-learned reflection—by Shalom Hartman Institute faculty member Leon Wiener Dow.
  • In the vein of the perennial debates of what makes any given book “a Jewish book,” JTA editor-in-chief Andrew Silow-Caroll recently mused about what makes news “Jewish news.”
  • “The Canadian government has officially recognized the national historic significance of two seminal Montreal Jewish writers of the early 20th century, Hirsch Wolofsky and A.M. Klein.”
  • ICYMI: I had two poems published on the Jewcy site last Friday. One poem corresponded to last week’s Torah portion, but the other remains relevant each and every Shabbat!
  • Shabbat shalom.
