שלח! Sh'lach! Send Out Havel Havelim!!

Yes, it's the  weekly Torah Portion שלח לך Sh'lach Lecha! Send Out, and I request that you send out, share this edition of the long-running weekly international Jewish and Israeli blog carnival, Havel Havelim. It was established about fifteen years ago by Soccer Dad who no longer blogs. Now we keep it going on our facebook page. I host it most of the time, but the aim is for it to be hosted by other bloggers, too. If you're interested, please let me know. Also send me (before Shabbat your time) a link to your favorite Jewish or Israeli blog post of the week, best with a line about it, thanks.

Think of Havel Havelim as an internet magazine full of articles about Judaism, Jewish Life and Israel from various blogs. Sometimes the post isn't quite in tune with the host's opinion, but as long as it neither promotes another religion or the destruction of the State of Israel, it belongs in Havel Havelim. Some of the links are sent to the host, and others are chosen by the host. And some are from the host's blog/s of course. Participating in Havel Havelim is a good way to promote your blog, and hosting is even better.

Next week's Havel Havelim will be hosted by Enjoying the Bible. Please send your link and a one line blurb to before Shabbat your time. Thanks!

Please visit, comment and share the blog posts in this Havel Havelim and also let people know about it.
Remember, you don't have to be a blogger to read, comment and share

Batya, thanks for including my post. I shall try to make a gradual return to the fold of HH, time allowing.

And apologies for the late response, I was a bit detached from the intertubes lately.

All the best.
