Please be sure to check out Haveil Havalim #169 Part I.
In my home, we’re through the Father’s Day brunch and heading into the traditional Father’s Day cookout. Seems so Jewish doesn’t it, with the focus on food? Sorry for not resisting the stereotype – I really need to check out who created the day, don’t I?
Barbara’s Tchatzkahs says that Even Jews Wear Plaid in Scotland, but does anyone think we’ll see Steve Martin do a Jewish remake of Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid that incorporates this information!?
While in the United States we deal with defining and re-defining racism related to presidential election campaigning, Ben-Yehudah writes about it in the context of children and poetic expression in Ahmed’s Bunker.
A la Jeopardy, YID With LID might give the answer as Three Things That Don’t Exist, with the question being, what are Unicorns, Monsters Under The Bed and CHANCE OF MID EAST PEACE.
Daled Amos enlightens us on how Al-Jazeera’s Viewers Get A Lesson On Jerusalem. I think I’ll have to check that out before I decide whether that’s a good or bad thing.
Well, thanks a lot YID With LID for blowing my PG-13 rating with Israeli Professor “Bitch-Slaps” Arab’s Jerusalem Claim On Al-Jazeera! [SARCASM]
The best part about titles like Judeopundit’s It’s “Zionist Lies Week” at MPAC-UK! is that they compel us to go take a look – now that’s what a good blog post title should do.
Cosmic X continues the series Rabbi Druckman, Rabbi Sherman and the Conversion Crisis (Part 5) (making me feel compelled to read the previous four parts!).
Just as there are folks who travel the globe to visit every single baseball stadium, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn of someone or some people doing the same in search of shuls of all kinds, thus my great interest in this post about shuls in Hong Kong by Ilana-Davita.
Think of the song lyrics, “Summertime, Summertime, Sum sum summertime” when you go to read Batya’s Yes, I Was First!!.
Jon Swift asks a question I’m sure many of us have either been asked or are asking ourselves: Is Barack Obama Good for the Jews?
I’m on my shul’s board and have tried to resign no less than three times so I absolutely appreciate Torczyner’s take, Derashah: Behaalotcha – Ode to the Humble Shul Board Member at The Rebbetzin’s Husband.
I like to believe that even if, as Barbara’s Tzchatkes says, Obama is Hope-less on Israel, we can turn that into an opportunity, riiiiiight?
What a great question Heshy poses: Can a women read the megillah for a man? And it makes me think that this carnival should be read by clergy everywhere because this has got to be a frequently considered issue, like so many covered by contributors.
Turning to Pirkea Avot and women’s issues, Leora asserts that One Needs Humor.
And from my geographic neighbor, Daf Yomi tells us about Teaching Torah to Girls. I love the presence of so many posts about how women fit into all things Haveil Havalim.
