CELEBRATING THE TENTH ANNIVERSARY YEAR OF JEWISH FICTION .NET!
Welcome to our Purim & Pesach issue! In honour of these joyful holidays and the tenth anniversary year of Jewish Fiction .net, we bring you an especially rich issue of Jewish Fiction .net: 23 marvelous stories originally written in Yiddish, Hebrew, and English. These include a story about Purim (“The Feast of Esther”), two about Pesach (“What Elijah Brought” and “Plagued”), and one that is intentionally set in between these two holidays (“Serah”). The first two of these four stories take place during Covid.
We also invite you to enjoy Jewish Fiction .net by joining us in April for our first-ever online program, "On Jewish Women's Writing," part of the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute's Virtual Conversations Series. Dr. Nora Gold, our editor, will discuss some of the women's writing in Jewish Fiction .net and will interview two authors (one Israeli, one American) from this new issue: Nora Houri-Haim and Diane Lederman. You can register for this free event here.
