Haveil Havalim #169 Part II

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?


YID With LID makes the case of Pat Buchanan-a PUTRID HATER and how Anti-Semitism is Embedded in British Culture.


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!?


Letter From Jerusalem … To The World, at Shira bat Sarah, is an Aish.com video about the thoughts of someone living in Jerusalem a year after its liberation.


Can a drop down menu really categorize every Jew? comes from Frum Satire and I’m laughing before even reading it!

I don’t remember the answer to Why don’t frum men wear wedding rings? anymore, but I didn’t think it was that funny until I re-educated myself at Frum Satire‘s post about it.


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.

The Palestinian Collaboraters Of Sderot at Daled Amos is sure to interest readers all along the political spectrum.

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!!.

I hope that others love this carnival for the topics you read about that you never even knew existed, such as, for me, Conversations in Klal: Dating “In Town,” posted at Conversations in Klal.


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.

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of haveil havalim using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

  2. Thanks for including me.

    Nazir 66b “Know that this is so (the one who responds “Amen” is greater than the one who recites the blessing), for the common soldiers engage the enemy in battle, and the champions seal the victory.”

  3. The food focus isn’t just for Jews, Jill.

    My lapsed Catholic family also spends holidays focused of food.

    Of course, we all head home feeling guilty for eating too much. 😉

  6. Carole – isn’t it cool!? I’ve wanted to contribute and Jack the Purveyor of HH has included some of my posts from time to time, but I really need to make a commitment.

    Hmm – someone more knowledgeable than me: is there a mitzvah about blogging? 🙂
