The Praying Havel Havelim

Cross-posted on me-ander

Normally I name the weekly Havel Havelim on the Parshat Shavua, the weekly Torah Portion, but this week I feel that must must make it a prayer for the safe return, rescue of the three Jewish youngsters who have been kidnapped by Arab terrorists:

May they be speedily returned, safe and sound to to their families.

And now back to Havel Havelim which is the long-running international Jewish blog carnival. It was started by Soccer Day who no longer blogs. Today it's coordinated on our facebook page. We also use blog carnival, but it seems to be down, and I don't know if it'll be back.

Havel Havelim generally floats from blog to blog. I pick up a lot of the slack. You can send in your links to the host; information can be found on our facebook page. And if you'd like to host one either fill in the file, again on our facebook page, or contact me at shilohmuse at gmail dot com. This week was supposed to be hosted by Tzivia, but "life" or should I say death got in the way. She is sitting shiva for her brother Eli; read the eulogy she wrote.

Following, in no particular order and without identifying the blogs, various posts submitted by others or chosen by me. To make it clear, the posts included may include opinions I don't agree with. Enjoy!
