Haveil Havalim #391

י"א לחודש העשירי תשע"ג

This week's edition of Haveil Havalim is pretty Israel focused.  I certainly do not mind.  But, I would like to encourage those in the Diaspora (Exile) to participate as well. Spread the word to your fellow bloggers, and join us on our Facebook group to keep in touch with each other, and to keep up to date with this blog carnival.

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., and headed up by Jack.  The term 'Haveil Havalim,' whichmeans"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.'

Daniel at The Heart Of Adam shares with us Circular Meditation. "Every individual has a unique role to play in the world...."

Gene Matanky, posting at Think Judaism, asks, "Where Is God?"

Baruch's Breeze recounts the Modern Hanukkah Battle of a Beth-El teen.  Torah, Life In Israel, Hanukkah, how to relate to the Nations,...You pick the category for this must read, true story!


Rafi at Like in Israel gives us his Picture Of The Day, Prime Minister Netanyahu's photo op., as well as the Quote Of The Day, from Rabbi MK Chaim Amsalem.

Avi at Tel-Chai Nation reports on the Banning of Arab MK Zouabi from running in the coming elections.  Will the Supreme Court uphold the decision?

Elie Klein, writing at The Times Of Israel, tells us what happens 300 Donuts Later.

Lauren's Aliyah Something brings us Having an Oleh Day When You're Almost Considered Not An Olah Chadasha.

It's also been two months since Just Call Me Chaviva arrived in Israel.  She tells us about it in A Very Narrow Bridge.

I'm not sure where to place these next posts either.  Since I live in Israel, they'll go here.  I write about Jewish Feminism.  Then on a lighter note, I explain the relevant halakhoth of this year's Festivus observance.

Ima 2 Seven tells us why her Kids Didn't Want To Go To School Today.

Batya at Me-Ander presents Shabbat Menus: Very Tricky, Especially When Milky.  She also tells us about Shiloh And Jewish History, posted on Shiloh Musings.

Ruti at Ki Yachol Nuchal! brings us some Cinnamon-Scented Tradition.

Jacob at Good News From Israel tells us about the New Israeli Educational Stamps, and also presents his new Legal Vocabulary English Hebrew Dictionary.

Last but not least, Asher Zeiger at The Times Of Israel reports that an Israeli Tween Wins An International Tennis Tourney.

OK.  That's a wrap for this week!

Ruth (Ricki's Mom) of Beneath The Wings will be hosting next week's edition of Haveil Havalim.  She asks that if you would like to submit a post, that you do so by sending her a personal message through Facebook.
