Celebrating Israel and Jerusalem Havel Havelim!

Here we are between Yom Ha'atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim, Israeli Independence Day and Jerusalem Day, which seems to me the perfect time to post a Havel Havelim, the long running international Jewish/Israeli blog carnival/roundup.

I must admit that there's no real system or schedule any more in posting Havel Havelim. I do it when I'm suddenly in the mood, like today. And I also now limit it to eighteen 18 חי Chai = Life posts. There was a time when I'd include dozens.

This morning, I was suddenly inspired and sent out a notice on facebook, especially on the Havel Havelim page, that I'd be compiling an HH in an hour or so. A couple of bloggers mailed me their posts, and they will get top billing. They will be followed by my own posts and a few that I've found. If you'd like to be included next time, then be sure to join the facebook page and "follow" it in order to get all notifications.

I hope you enjoy the selection. Please read, comment and share the HH and the posts. And when you comment on a post, please be sure to let the blogger know that you found it on Havel Havelim. Enough with this introduction... On with the show!
