Pre-Shabbat Jewish Literary Links

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

  • “To the extent, however, that we have to embrace an anti-Zionist kashrut in order to participate in their community — sorry, no can do. Our hope is actually to preserve a progressive sensibility in the American Jewish community, to reach to our right and to our left, not to hunker down into self-righteous rage and radical orthodoxy.” A message from the editor of Jewish Currents magazine.
  • Honestly, Ron Charles might as well have been speaking directly to me at the start of his review of Moving Kings, the latest novel by Joshua Cohen.
  • I don’t see award amounts posted, but if you’re working on Jewish art/literature in Los Angeles County, you might want to check out The Word Grant, a project of American Jewish University’s Institute for Jewish Creativity, “which supports artists creating projects that explore Jewish ideas, themes, tradition, history, and identity.” Deadline: August 10, 2017. (via eJewishPhilanthropy)
  • “Park Avenue Synagogue, a large, dynamic Conservative synagogue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, seeks a dedicated individual for the role of Library Assistant.” (This is a part-time position.)
  • And, just posted a few hours ago: the July Jewish Book Carnival (organized by the Association of Jewish Libraries; hosted this month by yours truly).
  • I am taking off shortly for a long weekend away. Comment moderation may be delayed pending my return. In the meantime, Shabbat shalom, everyone!
