Haveil Havalim #337

Founded by Soccer Dad, Haveil Havalim is a carnival of Jewish blogs -- a weekly collection of Jewish and Israeli blog highlights, tidbits and points of interest collected from blogs all around the world. It's hosted by different bloggers each week and coordinated by Jack.

We had a little glitch this week with submissions not reaching me properly. Jack helped by providing me with a workaround, but if you sent in something and you don't see it here, most likely it was an oversight due to the system issue. Also, I didn't get any submissions for the end of the week, so if you sent in something on Thursday or Friday and you don't see it here, it's nothing personal. Please submit it again for the next HH.

Opinions expressed in the posts linked below are those of the respective bloggers and not necessarily endorsed by me.

We Need More Hosts!
Hosting the Blog Carnival is easy. Just contact Jack through the Blog Carnival website here, and tell him what day you can host. You will receive links to posts as they are submitted through the week. You can read them as they come in, and build your Blog Carnival post over time, or do it all at once - whatever works for you. Or, if you don't have time to read all the links, at the end of the week the Carnival will send you an email with HTML you can copy and paste that puts together the whole post for you with one easy cut and paste. So please host - we need you, and it will build traffic to your terrific blog!

  1. Susan, thanks for a wonderful HH #337. And extra thanks for including my posts.

  2. I had trouble trying to send in posts, but see they made it through...thanks!

  3. Thanks for the links, am looking froward to read (most of) the articles.

  4. The Blog Carnival tonight said that you are doing the next one on Dec 18? none for a month or is it still messed up?

  5. As far as I know, the list of future hosts is correct - hence our plea for more people to sign up to host - with the exception that yesterday I sent Jack an email volunteering to host this coming Sunday, Nov 27.

    Hosting is really fairly easy (when the system is working), so if you're thinking about hosting, I encourage you to give it a try.
