Haveil Havalim #384

A round of interesting blog-articles from last week.
Haveil Havalim

Throwing this one together quickly, so my apologies if I miss out on some posts that were submitted (or not received at all).

Haveil Havalim is a great idea (I’m not going to post the normal shpiel here – just let me say it’s our way of sharing a whole bunch of interesting blogs and blog posts that were posted this last week in the Jewish-Israel blogsphere. What happens is a lot of bloggers submit their posts to one blogger, who puts them together to weave a post. Unfortunately, in the last few weeks, the process seems to have gotten bogged down and the mechanism for submission just isn’t going smoothly. I only received a few posts – not nearly as many as I usually do…so I’m going to try to go to some of my favorites and pull them in here anyway, in addition to those that were sent to me…here’s hoping next time goes more smoothly.

Disclaimer: I am posting links to other blogs – this does not constitute an endorsement of any political or religious views – simply a way of sharing ideas. If you have a comment about the content of a post, please make the content on that site so that the poster can respond.

Sandy and the Jews

A huge story this week was Sandy – in the United States, of course, but also here in Israel. As usual, Muqata is great for showing glimpses of life here. The post showing one cartoon spoke to me so loudly. I had to look at it a few times to “get it.” The first time, I only looked at the TV and the example of the dismay the Israelis felt at seeing the devastation. It was only the second time that I looked past the television to the rest of the living room.

Elections – Here and There

The other big story, besides Sandy, was the upcoming elections – both in Israel and, of course, in the United States. Since I’ve made my personal feelings about the upcoming US elections clear on this blog, I will use my write as host to select not a balanced view of the upcoming elections, but certainly a fair view:

Israel Matsav posted about Rudy Giuliani’s comments about Obama here.

Isramom kicks off the discussion of Israel’s upcoming elections in her post: The Road to the 19th Knesset. It’s an interesting read – especially for someone like me who has left the Likud party for what I believe will be greener pastures. Batya also discusses the Israeli elections in her post Polls, Elections, and the Israeli Political Spectrum.

Israel

Forever working hard to bring an awareness of the plight of Israeli citizens who live in the South of Israel, Miriam Goodman posted Israelis Under Attack! Weapons of Choice: Missiles, Firebombs, Boulders and More…. Join her Facebook group to keep up with what is happening!
This week there will be an Erez Zikaron – a gathering in memory of RivkA Matitya, who passed away two years ago. Her blog Coffee and Chemo is a lesson for all parents – those suffering from catastrophic illnesses and those blessed with health – on how to be better parents. For information on the evening (Monday night, November 5th in Jerusalem), clickhere.You can also watch an amazing series on Coping with Adversity on YouTube – part 1 of RivkA’s talk is here.
Knights and Dragons in Jerusalem? Apparently so – see Real Jerusalem Streets for a treat.

Life in General

Ever have really hard days? We all do. How you cope with them is a measure of so many things. Here are some wonderful life lessons and advice from Rickismom on how to cope with The HARD Days.

Judaism and Religion

One of the goals of Haveil Havalim, I think, is to expose ourselves to new blogs. I have to admit (perhaps with a bit of embarrassment), that I haven’t been to this one before: Frozen Challah writes asks the question, What’s your view on tattoos?
