Are There Still Jewish/Israeli Bloggers? HH and KCC

It has been  four weeks since I last posted a Havel Havelim, the old weekly round-up of Jewish and Israeli blog posts.

From the updates on my blog rolls, meaning the list of blogs on the sidebars of my blogs,  there still are people blogging. I sometimes look at the various blog posts and enjoy reading them. What has very obviously petered out is the community, the camaraderie that we once enjoyed. I miss that. So, although the former niceties of thanking hosts of the Jewish blog carnivals Havel Havelim and Kosher Cooking Carnival seem to have gone the way of the Long Distance Operator, I still think that offering my readers a taste of other blogs is a good and productive thing to do. This time I will also include posts that would have been in the Kosher Cooking Carnival. I'd love it if others felt like hosting either one or both or the combo, so if you're interested, please let me know at shilohmuse@gmail.com. Both blog carnivals have facebook pages, Havel Havelim and Kosher Cooking Carnival, just click the names and join.

I hope that you check out the other blogs and posts, comment and share. Remember that blogging gives us the opportunity to post what the mainstream media leaves out. This time I will just feature a few blogs I like. They are very different. In addition I will add links to some of my own blog posts from the past few weeks. I would really appreciate your feedback on this. Here goes:

PREOCCUPIED TERRITORY is a fantastic satirical blog. Especially since the "death" of Caroline Glick's Latma, we're in need of someone to show how outrageously dumb people on the Left can be.

What would you do today if you were brave? Here’s my answer.

israelseen.com is an excellent comprehensive site which offers blog posts about Judaism and Israel. OK, now, is there really a difference nowadays between sites and blogs, articles and blog posts? Not really.

Here are some of my recent posts from both A Jewish Grandmother and Shiloh Musings.

Thanks for the mention, Batya. We aim to please. So much is going on in the world of Israeli beer that I can't keep up. I'm giving a lecture on the history of brewing in the Middle East, including the Israel craft beer revolution, on November 16, 8:00 pm, at the Conservative Center, 8 Agron Street in Jerusalem. And there will be tastings! Please try to come -- and tell your beer-loving friends.

Doug, I really enjoy the blog and the beer! If I'm not working I'll come and we'll go back in the direction of Pisgat Zeev together where I'll catch my bus.
