Jewish Book Carnival: December

  • On her blog, My Machberet, Erika Dreifus routinely curates pre-Shabbat Jewish literary links. Here’s one recent batch, including a link to Erika’s own latest column for the U.K.’s Jewish Chronicle, all about Jewish books she’s looking forward to reading in 2018.



  • From The Book of Life, we’ve got a group interview with the creators of two books related to The Ethics of the Fathers, aka the Pirkei Avot. Jessica Deutsch created The Illustrated Pirkei Avot: A Graphic Novel of Jewish Ethics, and Lois Shenker and Rabbi Even Posen co-wrote Pirkei Imahot: The Wisdom of Mothers, The Voices of Women.
  • The Association of Jewish Libraries, in conjunction with The Jewish Book Council, held the third annual #Readukkah Jewish reading challenge during Hanukkah. You can read all the posts about Jewish books at the Facebook event.


  • Deborah Kalb interviews a variety of authors on her website. Here’s an interview she did recently with Israeli author Eshkol Nevo about his book Three Floors Up.
