Haveil Havalim #361: The Post-Shavu'oth 5772 Edition

8 of the Third Month 5772

Founded by Soccer Dad, Haveil Havalim is a carnival of Jewish blogs -- a weekly collection of Jewish & Israeli blog highlights, tidbits and points of interest collected from blogs all around the world. It's hosted by different bloggers each week and jointly coordinated through our Facebook GroupThe term 'Haveil Havalim,' which means"Vanity of Vanities," is from Qoheleth, (Ecclesiastes) which was written by King Solomon. King Solomon built the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and later on got all bogged down in materialism and other 'excesses' and realized that it was nothing but 'hevel,' or in English, 'vanity.'
Let's get right to this week's edition!


Shira Salamone at On The Fringe seems to think that the second day of Yom Tov in the diaspora has a different halakhic status that the first day.  Does it?  See what she has to say in Splitting Hairs, So To Speak: Shampooing on Yom Tov.  Personally, I believe that the easiest solution regarding this issue would be to move to Israel.
