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

  • I’ve never forgotten the heroism of Special Police Officer Stephen Tyrone Johns—which made Tamara Miller’s “The Rabbi in the ER” especially moving reading for me.
  • After preparing myself with this Tablet piece by Marco Roth, I’m currently reading Joshua Cohen’s Moving Kings.
  • Hard to believe: “Soon there will only be one Judaica store left in Manhattan.” (via Ben Sales for JTA)
  • On a cheerier note: “Streetwise Hebrew” is a new addition to my podcast subscriptions. (I need to focus more when listening to them, though! It’s one thing to listen while I’m walking around the city; it’s another to sit and listen and look at/study each show’s notes!)
  • And ICYMI on the Practicing Writing blog: Here’s some news about a new #JewLit-related book-publicity project of mine.
  • Shabbat shalom.
