A quick definition of HH:
Haveil Havalim is the carnival of Jewish blogs -- a weekly collection of Jewish & 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 Soccer Dad. The term “Haveil Havalim”, which means "Vanity of Vanities", is from Kohelet, Ecclesiastes, which was written by King Solomon. Solomon built the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and later on got all bogged down in materialism and other “excesses” and realized that it was nothing but “hevel”, or in English, “vanities.”Check it out!
Last week: SoccerDad hosted #70.
Next week: Jack of the Shack will be hosting. E-mail Jack (or Shola!) at talktojacknow at sbcglobal dot net with your submissions!
In general, Haveil Havalim could really use more volunteers to host. It's great, it's fun, and you don't need to do a hundred links like many have done. It really brings to light some of the great posts you may otherwise not see, and gives greater exposure to some of your own stuff as well. E-mail David at dhgerstman at hotmail dot com if you'd like to volunteer.
