I’m the “default” blog for the new weekly Havel Havelim, the international Jewish blog round-up aka carnival. In principle, Havel Havelim is a floating blog carnival hosted by various Jewish and Israeli bloggers every week in time for Shabbat, but it may be posted as late as Sunday your time.
If you’d like to host an edition, please let me know, thanks. We communicate via our facebook page. Hosts are to post links submitted (just edit out any spam) and you may and should add any other suitable links you’ve found over the previous week. It’s really easy to host. Your base is the blog carnival’s “instacarnival” and you just add additional posts and picutres from posts if you want. I’ll coach you through it if necessary, so don’t fear.
Simply put, on with the show!
I’ve added a new category to Havel Havelim, רפואה שלימהת Refuah Shleima, A Complete Recovery. I’ve been following a couple of Jewish blogs dealing with medical issues, which I want to include.
When the bima Ima’s life was “simpler,” when all she had to deal with was her work in Jewish education and raising four precocious and adorable kids, she used to host HH. Now unfortunately the family revolves around the needs of Superman Sam. Please read and pray.
Geuliyah aka Geuliyah Shomrona bat Leah Rachel is a very pregnant mother and doula blogging about a complex pregnancy. She’s the daughter of close friends and the doula who delivered other friends’ grandchildren. She’s a gifted writer and new blogger.
OK, this isn’t from a blog, but a good friend recommended listening to Shani Taragin talk about Eicha.
There are first person aliyah posts and blogs, and there are also those by parents of olim. Hadassa is joining that group, You’re Sending Your Son to Die?
