Jewish and Israeli Blog Round-Up! 11 Sh'vat 5774

י"א לחודש האחד עשר תשע"ד

הגיליון הזה מוצא לאור לעילוי נשמת אחי

אליהו בן אברהם ז"ל

This edition is dedicated to the memory of my brother Eliyahu ben Avraham z"l on his 20th Yartzeit. 12 Sh'vat (על פי דין).
Founded by Soccer DadHaveil 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, jointly coordinated through our Facebook Group. The 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.' Submissions may be may through our on-line submission form on, which requires you to log-in first.
First, a very important announcement...
