Haveil Havalim #169 – Part I*

[BE SURE TO READ PART II of Haveil Havalim #169 HERE]

Many thanks to Jack for entrusting me with this edition of Haveil Havalim. I’ve admired the effort for a long time now and am pleased to compose it this week. For those observing Father’s Day, have a good one.

*Due to the great participation this week and my failure to adequately estimate the time it would take to do it right, in conjunction with fulfilling my Father’s Day duties, I’m posting this in two parts, the second to come sometime in the midday today (Sunday, June 15). Thank you for your patience! So if you don’t see your post here, it will be in later today. Also, I organized the subjects alphabetically except for Miscellaneous which is still last.


Ari Kinsberg’s Lion of Zion: A Romantic Siddur starts off this week’s edition with something a little intimate, at least nominally.


What’s the The Real World like for kids moving from one culture to another, wonders Batya.

Soccer Dad definitely isn’t thinking about the Father’s Day brunch I’m prepping in Betting with buffett.

What happens when Halacha and Nation Building unite is the subject of Joe Settler’s Buying Eretz Yisrael on Shabbat.

I hope my family and I can fit in some cool things to do in Israel when we visit later this year, though I don’t know if that will include this suggestion in Learn To Shoot from Joe Settler.

A Hamas “Work Accident” Destroys Gaza Street is described by The Muqata.

Talk about a great blog post title: Israeli Jewess Helicopter Pilot Puts “60 Minutes” Reporter In His Place from Jewess.

Meryl Yourish tackles the Bombardment of Israel continues while Olmert fiddles this week.

Need refreshment? Jerusalemite gives us a peek into A conversation with Uzi-Eli Chezi, remedy and refreshment guru.


Schvach shares some thoughts about Bobby Kennedy and Israel at Schvach – פני דל.

If you’re looking for that extra something to help you be a do-er, Dan Illouz offers 10 Questions with a Jewish Activist.

Ben-Yehudah explores the identification of who is The Real “Religious Zionist.”

A Simple Jew really helps us understand things more simply in this Question & Answer With Rabbi Zvi Leshem – Peak Moments In Avodas Hashem.

Need a little economic development conversation? Try Orthonomic’s Return on Investment.


You’ll have to read Shoe Shopping with Teenage Daughters to decide if there are any Sex and The City parallels.

100 days of sex probably involves a lot of miscellany, hence Jack’s blog, Random Thoughts, as its home.

NY’s Funniest Rabbi asks Any Questions?


If you’re curious to know who is in the Generation of the Cynic, you’ll want to read that post by Batya.

This definitely falls in the “who knew!?” category for me: Jewschool’s McCain and the Qumran Connection.

I was just writing about the relevance of associations myself (in regard to John McCain and Clayton Williams) and here comes Ocean Guy with Why Obama’s Associations are So Important.


Bar Kochba explains Why Messianic “Judaism” is anti-semitic.

This week’s poem, from Rachel Barenblat, is Shine (B’ha-alot’kha).

What I most love about doing this carnival is how much I learn, for example, from Dan’s post about Authentic Kiruv – Part 1.

I’m thinking My Religious Disputation With A Tow-Truck Driver and Shopping at Walmart cannot turn out well, but go read Lion of Zion’s tale to find out.


Batya ruminates on how It’s Not Just About Converts over at Shiloh Musings.

Just in case the weather hasn’t calmed down yet in your area, try reading Batya’s thoughts on Staying In The Shade.

I’d like to maintain my PG status for this blog, so I’m glad that QuietusLeo didn’t name the word in the title of No, not that four letter word, the other one.

This edition is continued in Part II HERE.
