Haveil Havalim #370

י"א לחודש החמישי תשע"ב
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.'

Ya'aqov thanks so much for your Post-3 Week's Havel Havelim and including my posts.

Esser Agaroth said...

Thanks, Batya!

For the record, though, there are many Jews who do not hold to any customs pertaining to the "3 Weeks," which is quite recent concept.
