Jewish and Israeli Blog Round-Up for Parashath Vayechi

י"ב לחודש העשירי תשע"ד תשע"ד

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.

With great sadness, I must first announce the passing of Superman Sam, the son of Ima On The Bima and Abba Sababa. He will be surely missed, even by those of us, who only got to know him through this blog. He really was a hero and an inspiration, and so are his parents.
