Ezzie's Blog Roundup, 5/10: Join In

Straight to the roundup tonight, as I've already posted plenty of material today... Daled Amos also has a nice list of links.

*Post of the Day*
Tough call, but WestBankMama's post Rememberance Day for Little Girls is quite inspiring. Excerpt:

Sarah (she of the marvelous Melbourne pictures) tells us about a contest Emanuel has started:
"What is a Jewish photo? Is it the caption? The person who takes it? Or is it in the way a viewer see it? Every answer can be correct, but I want more. So I will present a challenge to you all, I would like you to take a photo, or use an existent one, and send me one that captures the essence of the Jewish Nation/People."
AbbaGav wants everyone to help free Alaa.

Batya wants your recipes!

Jameel talks about Elvis the drug dealer.
WestBankMama starts a meme asking why people do or don't make aliyah, and Life in Israel answers first.
