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

  • New issue alert! Lilith‘s fall 2017 edition is now available!
  • A Twitter thread on the Unetaneh Tokef prayer—featuring the Israel in Translation podcast, Matti Friedman, and yours truly.
  • “Baltimore Jewish Times, a nearly century-old weekly news magazine and multi-platform digital publication covering the Baltimore region’s diverse Jewish community, is looking for an enthusiastic, community-minded reporter to join our Owings Mills-based news team full time.”
  • A mini-festival of Israeli literature is coming to New York.
  • And I am immensely proud to present my first column for the U.K.’s Jewish Chronicle.
  • Shabbat shalom, and a meaningful fast and holiday to all who will be observing.

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

  • Other Covenants, the first-ever anthology of Jewish alternate history, to be published by ChiZine Publications in Fall 2019,” seeks submissions. (via Selene MacLeod)
  • The Jewish Advocate (Boston) is hiring a reporter.
  • And in Los Angeles, there’s a job opportunity for a PJ Library Program Manager.
  • I was so excited to discover Ben Yehuda Press’s new emphasis on Jewish poetry that I had to immediately support their Kickstarter project.
  • Finally: a hearty mazal tov to Bethany Ball, whose What to Do About the Solomons was recently shortlisted for the Center for Fiction’s First Novel Prize.
  • Shabbat shalom!

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

  • On the “contributions to Israeli literature of writers writing in languages other than Hebrew.”
  • It’s time for the Jewish Book Carnival (hosted for August by Yael Shahar).
  • A review of Sons and Soldiers: The Untold Story of the Jews Who Escaped the Nazis and Returned with the U.S. Army to Fight Hitler.
  • Job alert (New York): Hadassah is looking for a Social Media Specialist.
  • There’s obviously been a lot of writing about what happened in Charlottesville last weekend—and its aftermath. Rather than post some of the items that have resonated most with me, I invite you to share some of the readings that you have found most powerful.
  • Shabbat shalom.

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

  • Lovely profile by Sandee Brawarsky of novelist Rachel Kadish and The Weight of Ink, Kadish’s latest book. (I’ve got a copy of this one waiting for me, along with Jennifer S. Brown’s Modern Girls, after attending a Scribblers on the Roof reading by Kadish and Brown this past Sunday evening.) See also Judy Bolton-Fasman’s take for JewishBoston.com.
  • Earlier this week, Moment magazine posted a remarkable poem by Julia Knobloch: “Ninth of Av.”
  • Job alert: San Francisco’s Jewish Community Library is looking for a Program Coordinator.
  • Good news! There’s now a Goodreads giveaway for Rabbi Shai Held’s The Heart of Torah: Essays on the Weekly Torah Portion (volume 1). Wouldn’t you love to have this on your shelf in 5778?
  • And in case you missed it: This week brought the publication of an article (by yours truly!) taking note of the 20th anniversary of the 1997 publication of Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent. (And citing some subsequent works of fiction that have followed in its path.)
  • Shabbat shalom, everyone. And a quick note: My Machberet will be “on hiatus” for a bit while I go attend a conference. Thanks for your patience. I’ll be back soon!

    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!
