July 2015 Jewish Book Carnival


I'm delighted to be hosting the July 2015 Jewish Book Carnival! The carnival, which appears  on the 15th of each month, brings together an assortment of information on books with Jewish themes.

Here are this month's selections:

In June, Jill at Rhapsody in Books reviewed Chik Chak Shabbat by Mara Rockliff, illustrated by Krysten Booker, a children's picture book about a multicultural celebration of the Sabbath (and featuring a recipe for vegetarian cholent at the back).

The Fig Tree Books blog spotlights one of the panels--on book-reviewing--from the recent conference of the Association of Jewish Libraries.

Over on My Machberet, Erika Dreifus explains what she admires about Sam Apple's recent Tablet piece, "The Butcher of Desire; or, Imagining Philip Roth."

The Association of Jewish Libraries highlights its coverage of its 50th annual conference, which took place in Silver Spring, Maryland, in June.

And from my own website, I'd like to revisit an interview with Dina Gold about her new book, Stolen Legacy: Nazi Theft and the Quest for Justice at Krausenstrasse 17/18, Berlin, which looks at how her family sought restitution from the German government after the Nazis took their property. 

Many thanks to all the bloggers who participated in this Carnival!
